Have just stayed here for a weekend break and have no complaints. Location is very good, but I didn't give it top marks due to pedestrian access to Radisson's riverside location being by unpleasant 1960s concrete steps. We found check in staff helpful unlike some previous comments. Rooms was modern, and very clean and comfortable, if a little characterless, but that's only to be expected in a modern hotel. Airconditioning was very efficient and quiet and there was an added bonus of windows that opened. Although we were at the back and didn't have a river view, our room overlooked a field and it was very quiet at night. We ate in the restaurant one night and food, wine and service were very good, but slightly overpriced. Breaksfasts were some of the best I've had in a hote,l with a good selection of fresh fruit in the cold buffet. We tried to watch a pay to view film in our room on the first night and had problems downloading it. Our call to maintenance was promptly dealt with, even though the problem wasn't sorted. But the next afternoon on returning from a day out, we found a note saying the monitor had been changed and our film had been set up and was ready to view (free of charge). If visiting Durham again, I would certain stay again at the Radisson.
