Overnight stay

Posted Aug 13, 2014
Pros: The location and facilities were the best features of the hotel.
Cons: The rotating door at the main entrance must be the slowest in creation, and the parking arrnagements are not the best or most flexible.
Location: Durham town centre is only a short walk away with shops, bars and restaurants as well as the cathedral and castle.
The Radisson is a well appointed hotel in a good location within easy reach of the town centre. The staff are very welcoming and helpful, and the facilities are in keeping with a hotel of this type.

Great location but didn't live up to expectations

Posted Jun 8, 2014
Pros: location and comfortable beds
Cons: The spa did not live up to expectations Drop the parking fee if you are a guest
Location: Enjoyed lunch and drinks at the local champagne bar and took in Jenny Eclaire show at the gala theatre
The positives - Comfortable room, great view and location, easy to find, friendly reception and housekeeping staff. The negatives - disappointing spa, pool too cool and layout not appropriate, breakfast staff disinterested, had to request items twice and tables remained uncleared, additional parking fee was a bit greedy, hotel bar prices very high - nearly £3 for a small diet coke.

Excellent

Posted Jun 6, 2014
Pros: Spa Breakfast
Location: Very near to centre can walk to wine bars restaurants and shops
Have stayed in the Radisson many times. Spa facilities excellent. Hotel staff as always very helpful. Breakfast lovely noticed a few items added to breakfast menus which appreciated. Rooms are very nice although beds were less comfortable than usual and for the first time we were in two singles pushed together. Over the two nights the beds kept moving apart and one of us kept slipping into the gap.

Decent Hotel close to Town Centre

Posted May 20, 2014 on Hotels.com
Hotel was good, cheap overnight parking of £7 per night (24hrs). Hotel was clean, leisure facilities were ok but a little small really. Location was good, 5 minute walk to centre including nightlife. As for Durham, beautiful place, good through the day with things to see however it lacked a little a night if you are there as a couple.

Good hotel and centrally located

Posted May 19, 2014
Pros: Clean, modern, convenient.
Location: The hotel being centrally located made the beautiful historic city of Durham, UK. very accessible.
Hotel is attractive and our bedroom overlooked the river which was for us, a value added bonus.

What a lovely hotel! The room was lovely and modern and very clean- the bed was sooo comfy! We didnt get a chance to use the pool/gym facilities unfortunately. The location was perfect for walking into town too!
