Durham is one of our favourite places for a weekend, and the Radisson Blu is where we stay. The hotel is very well designed, well appointed with lovely spacious rooms (exec class) with a bedroom area, a separate lounge area, a dressing area and an ensuite bathroom. For £125 per night including breakfast this is exceedingly good value. However value is just one of the plusses. All the pub,ic areas and rooms are spotlessly clean. Staff are very well trained at both reception, generally, and in the restaurant both at dinner and breakfast. The Filini menu is very good with plenty of choice and the food we ate tasted as if it could have been prepared and served in Tuscany. The puddings were wonderful. If we lived in Durham this would be a regular destination for eating out. Breakfast, buffet style was superb both in choice and quality. Overall this is how a contemporary hotel should be, but very rarely is. As it's the 3rd time we have stayed with this quality and level of service, it's clearly not an exception but the norm there. We will certainly stay again whenever we can and would highly recommend the hotel to others.
