The massage was brilliant... More

Nice good size, clean rooms ideal for a business trip. Very near Durham City centre and train station. Would recommend going elsewhere for breakfast though as slow service and they couldn't keep on top of clearing the tables.

No hesitation in recommending the Radisson for a stay in Durham. Good location for a short walk into town, easy to park (8£ per 24 hours if booked via the hotel reception), large well equipped standard rooms, an excellent quality breakfast and a nice spa with a small pool/jacuzzi/sauna and steamroom open from early till late. Staff are young, all... More

Business class includes free parking and early evening drinks and snacks. Feather pillows provided as standard but they swapped them with no bother as I am allergic. Great... More

This is a well appointed, modern hotel in a good location in Durham for exploring. I'm rating as 3 stars as there seemed to be a good deal of confusion at reception around rooms that were ready to check-in on arrival. Then confusion around getting a key that actually opened the appointed room door. The staff, however, were very friendly... More

It is very difficult not to like the design of the place. The rooms are all very nicely decorated and the hotel is pretty quiet considering how many rooms there are. The rooms are clean and the mattresses are very comfy. The ventilation is also good. The staff are OK but I was surprised not to be asked whether I... More

Really nice hotel, room was comfortable, spacious and well kitted out. All the staff were helpful, very friendly and informative. Ate in the restaurant and the food was delicious, breakfast food was lovely, although our only criticism is the service at breakfast. We will be back xx
