A typical Radisson with nice beds and towels. The staff are helpful and friendly at all times. I have never been disappointed in the welcome and helpfulness here. However, the shower trickles and the food is incredibly basic. Ordered room service and chose the Tapas menu - everything was deep fried in batter. The whole room service menu lacked imagination...

Booked the room and informed them that we were newly weds. When we arrived we had been upgraded to an amazing king size suite with complimentary champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. We had a lovely Jacuzzi bath and the suite was huge. What a lovely surprise. Thank you for making an already special occassion that bit more special to us.... More

Well located hotel just a short uphill walk to the town's historic centre. My party had riverside rooms which were fine and this being an English summer we didn't mind about the lack of air conditioning. The public areas are bland boring and very dull but the service is competent and friendly and though the buffet breakfast was overly busy... More

Positioned in a superb location by Elvet Bridge in the centre of Durham, this three storey gracious Georgian era hotel has a fascinating history. For many years Labour Leaders such as Harold Wilson would address huge crowds assembled for the annual Durham Miner`s Gala from the first floor balcony of the hotel. Now much extended and part of the Marriott... More

We had no problems with our stay here. There was a comfortable bed and the building is beautiful. Starbucks downstairs is also handy for quick bites. However, it is quite expensive for one night at £114 was glad to split the cost between the two of us sharing the room! Our view also wasn't too great as we felt like... More

Stayed here for a family wedding.Had slight concerns that the room wouldnt be ready for us to get changed in but on arrival they had prepared it early. The wedding was a huge success and the hotel was the perfect setting.....food was outstanding. Every staff member we came across was very polite and helpful and nothing was too much trouble....

A lovely weekend at the Durham Marriott.The room was lovely - spacious - clean. It was great to have a separate lounge area. Located on the edge of the town it was easy to find and a quick 2minute walk to the main shopping area and the castle & cathedral. I thought the staff were so very helpful and attentive.... More
