Stayed at the hotel for business in November 2012 with 2 colleagues.
When we arrived, the hotel was full and our reservation could not be found, and it was some 20 minutes before the matter was resolved. However, there was the slightest hint of a default position from the receptionist of "your mistake not ours". In the end, it was discovered to be a hotel problem rather than our own.
That aside, our stay was largely fine. My room was well appointed, the free internet worked without any problems at all, and the evening meal in the bar was prompt and of good quality. breakfast was something of an experience - was directed to a table, and asked for tea/coffee etc. I went to the buffet to get a juice only to return to find a conference party had expanded their numbers onto my table... the same member of staff who sat them there obviously forgot I had just been sat there. Otherwise, the breakfast was very good.
All in all, a good stay, but for a couple of hiccups.

Lovely hotel, very comfortable, room large and well furnished, comfortable bed. Lobby welcoming, as were check in staff, sauna and pool area were great. Hotel has free wifi, which although a little slow, is good, and should be adopted by all hotels.

Location is fine, on the river, had a room with nice river view, footbridge outside hotel to take you across into the centre of the city.

Would happily return for all of theset hings, but not the breakfast, which was one of the worst I think I've had in an hotel. Usual buffet, but spoilt by being bland and tasteless. Scrambled eggs disgustingly runny and lacking in any taste at all. So sad, and so annoying.

We stayed in Room 404 at the Radisson on Saturday night and had a wonderful time. I emailed the hotel a few days before arriving to request a river view room and we were very kindly upgraded to a business class room with all the extras thrown in; free parking, use of the business class lounge with free drinks for 1.5 hours, in house movies etc. We never expected the hotel to do this and this was so much appreciated.

There wasn't anything that was too much trouble for the staff and all were very welcoming in all areas of the hotel. The breakfast was brilliant the next morning too with a huge selection to choose from. As it was served from 6.30-12 the morning felt very relaxed and not at all rushed as it can so often feel when you have to have breakfast within a 2 hour window and you have had a few drinks the night before!!! I'm glad we went for breakfast at ten though as when we left the breakfast area at eleven, there was a lot of guests waiting to be seated and they didn't look overly happy!

We had a truly brilliant stay and wish we could have stayed longer! Even though we only live in Newcastle, I'm sure we will stay here again and will recommend it to our friends and family too!

We stayed here with our young son. The staff were very obliging. The room was spacious with a lovely view over the river. The pool facilities were fantastic. We ate in the hotel restaurant on one night and the food was very nice. The hotel is in a great location and close to all of the shops and restaurants in the city centre. The hotel lobby was very busy in the evenings and it was nice to sit an people watch. Our rate did not include breakfast so we ate outside the hotel. We would stay here again if we ever return to Durham.
