Excellent location and easy parking.

Posted Apr 20, 2018
Easy access to the car park, which was priced at £9 for 24 hours. Excellent facilities and the location was close to the centre. We would definitely book to stay again.

Nice hotel in centre of town

Posted Mar 4, 2018
Pros: Friendly staff and views nothing was a bother to the staff
Cons: Paintwork in room could do with some attention
Location: The location is the centre of Durham. There is the cathedral to visit , shops and walks along the river. Plenty of bars and places to eat .
Very nice hotel lovely out look The room was a bit shabby in places for a junior suite lots of marks on paintwork Humming noise from air conditioning throughout the night

Top class hotel in Durham

Posted Feb 27, 2018
Pros: Location - quiet yet close. Good sized rooms with great view.
Cons: The heating fan in the room was rather noisy. Once the building work gets properly underway next door it might get dusty but at the moment it is fine.
Location: walking distance into all parts of Durham. Do not go to the Fat Buddha - dreadful food!
It's not always easy to get a good hotel room in Durham due to the City's popularity but now I've stayed at the Radisson Blu that will be my go-to hotel whenever I'm there. It's in a quiet location by the river but still close to the town centre. Great breakfast and good looking pool.

Great central position

Posted Feb 19, 2018
Spacious hotel and close to centre. Drinks in bar expensive. The breakfast choice is excellent but unfortunately the cooked food wasn’t hot.

Nice hotel in convenient location

Posted Jan 21, 2018 on Orbitz
Loved my room with view of river and Durham Cathedral visible off to the right. An easy walk to city center. Crook Hall is practically next door and worth the visit to the manor and gardens, even in the winter. The staff are friendly and quite helpful. Breakfast is available and the buffet has a good variety. I will be returning to Durham in the future and will definitely stay here again.

Lovely Christmas present getaway

Posted Jan 15, 2018
Pros: See above
Location: Great restaurants and history - the cathedral was great (and good to visit for Harry Potter fans too!)
This was booked for my niece and her partner but their views are roughly as follows. Very special - made especially so with the upgrade - thank you. The room and facilities were great, they enjoyed the pool, jacuzzi and sauna and it was a great location to get out and about in Durham. The staff were very well presented and professional. The breakfasts were great! They had a great weekend. Thank you
