Staff were friendly. The breakfast was really great with a lot of choice and all dietary requirements catered to. The gym, swimming pool and spa areas were also very good. The hotel is walking distance to the main shops and night life.

Stayed here this past month while visiting Durham and the Cathedral. Hotel was nicely situated right on the river with a view of the Cathedral. Hotel had a private parking lot and also was directly across the street from a pedestrian bridge that took you straight into the heart of the city. Hotel was very clean and had nice spacious...

This seemed to me a very high end hotel that had conference facilities by the look of it. We didn't eat or drink there for we wanted to experience the traditional pubs and eateries in Durham itself. The rooms are luxurious and very comfortable. There is a room bar with beverages and snacks in them, but then again like all... More

Booked this as a deal on LateRooms.com for a couple of nights as had never been to Durham. Easy to find and location really good. Right on the river with nice views (from the front rooms) and access right into the heart of the city. The room was spotless and we'll equipped as you would expect for a well rated... More

We visited recently, check in was efficient nice welcome reception bright and modern, our room was well equipped and the bed was exceptionally comfortable.

The Radisson Blu is very well located and fairly modern hotel. Check in / check out was stress free, WiFi was fast enough, and my room was of a good size (with a pleasant view of the river). There's plenty of choice for breakfast, although a lot seemed to be prepared off-site rather than onsite. The room itself was very... More

Based on the water at the bottom of the town (cathedral to the right) the hotel is a short walk from the town centre and cathedral. Great place to stay. Clean, tidy and friendly. Great breakfast too! ;-)

Our first stay here. £8 parking if staying at the hotel. Checked in quickly and efficiently. Nice communal areas. Superior room was okay but nothing flush to be honest.
