“Lovely hotel and lovely breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2012

Stayed at the Radisson Blu for my friends 40th Birthday. Lovely hotel, clean and well kept, all of the staff were very helpful and pleasant. We used the pool, sauna, steam room and jacuzzi during the day which was very nice. In the evening we walked over the connecting bridge straight into Durham which was nice and handy. Breakfast was lovely with plenty of choice. Would definately stay again.

The room was large, quiet and clean. Good bathroom and in general the whole room gives the sensation of space.
The hotel is modern and very good for a business visit though also appropiate for leisure.
Breakfast was good enough though it's not the biggest plus of the hotel. Choice, even though decent, could be improved.
Staff was kind and helpful.

I was treated to night away with the future Mrs and we got a deal for Dinner, Bed and Breakfast on Superbreak. The hotel is perfectly located for a trip to Durham with just a small venture over the walk bridge to bars and restraunts. The hotel rooms are very well decorated and are to a high standard, friendly staff and the whole place was very clean. Our meal on the evening was simply horrible, but to be fair the staff on duty did offer us a free bottle of wine and where understanding when we both looked at the pasta dsh which looked like it was out of a packet and would have done a good job if you where looking to grout some bathroom tiles

Not much to say. Modern, clean accommodation. Would stay again. We got a very cheap deal through Last Minute Top Secret Hotels.

The receptionist didn't tell us about the strange lighting system in the room or warn us that we needed a ticket to get out of the car park. We ordered a twin room but were given a double room. The tea and coffee supplies were meagre and there were only two clothes hangers per person. Worst of all, the Durham Radisson charges £6.50 for the car park every 24 hours - only mentioned in the small print. Most other Durham hotels have free car parks. Avoid if possible.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a river view, otherwise you'll be looking at the car park.

The room was clean and quite. The service staff was really friendly compared to the people working at the reception desk or the breakfast room. They were not really unfriendly but they didn't seem very motivated and were not helpful at all.
Durham is a nice location for a weekend and we found an excellent and authentic Italian restaurant.
