Hotel is in an excellent location, 5mins walk from the rail station (downhill going to the hotel but it's a steep walk going back up to the station!).
My room and bed were comfortable, I thought the bathroom was a bit smaller than you normally get at a Radisson but I was travelling solo so not a major problem.
There was a small fridge in the room (instead of a mini-bar) so I was able to buy drinks from a local supermarket and take them back to my room.
The city centre was within a few minutes walk so plenty of bars and restaurants nearby and the cathedral is approx. 10mins walk from the hotel. My room was on the riverside so I had an excellent view from the room.
I didn't use the spa facilities but I'm told that they are excellent by friends who have stayed at this hotel before.
Reception staff were friendly and efficient, I'd be happy to stay at this hotel on any future trip to the North East.
