                  The staff were very helpful in finding me a good room for my wedding anniversary. The view of the river and cathedral from room was lovely and hotel had great facilities.

                  The location and facilities were excellent

                  We had room 357 and the noise of bins and wagons going into offices, factory near to hotel were terrible. We never got to sleep till after 2am then the noise started again at 6am. Not an enjoyable experience.

                  9.6

                  Friendly and efficient staff, comfortable rooms, and a good location - ideal for a city break.

                • Older travelers
                  10.0

                  Great room facing river, very spacious, spotlessly clean.

                  Minor complaint was the cooked breakfast, as with a lot of hotels the dreaded catering sausage put in an appearance, along with the boiled mushrooms,insipid scrambled egg and tasteless black puding most of which was too cold. If this is the true representation of the great british cooked breakfast, it wont be long untill we are all eating museli. The rest of the breakfast selection was very good though.

                • Couple
                  8.8

                  Location was very good as nice quiet position but easy access to city centre. Our request of a river/cathedral view was granted and the room was of a good size and clean.

                  The cost of drinks at the bar in the reception area was very expensive and breakfast was also quite highly priced. The beds were a bit too hard too!

                • Older travelers
                  9.2

                  Friendly staff comfort and well appointed rooms good parking facilities ease of access to shops resturants and bars

                  6.2

                  Rooms were nice

                  Not great value for money - had been looking forward to spa facilities but they were disappointing: Did not know £1 was needed for lockers Changing rooms dirty No water available on poolside after using sauna/ steam room Chlorine in pool very strong Ice machine on 1st and 2nd floors did not work - had to go to 3rd floor!

                • Older travelers
                  9.6

                  Clean, well presented, good location in relation to city.

                  7.4

                  Friendly staff. Clean well equipped room. Gym and pool complex great. Great cental location. Fast lifts. River view

                  No sky sport channel Water fountain in gym out of order Cheaper breakfast option just for juice and cereal/toast... Not everyone can eat £15 worth of breakfast!

                • Couple
                  9.2

                  location was very good, staff excellent, brilliant hotel for relaxing short break.

                • Older travelers
                  8.8

                  The Radisson Blu was about what we expected as was informed by a friend that it was one of the nicest hotels to stay in when visiting Durham. Apart from this the room was lovely and the hotel was spacious and had plenty of chairs about in order to relax after a hectic night on the town

                  Minor niggles were no biscuits and limited tea and coffee making ingredients and the fact that there was no drinking water in the room which could be bought at the bar for a price of £4.10 which was a bit much to pay for bottle water.

                • Couple
                  8.2

                  The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The location of the hotel was very handy for the city centre and close to where our friend's were staying.

                  The price of breakfast was high and not included in the price.
