The Radisson Blu Hotel is just a five minute walk across the river into the centre of Durham. We stayed in a Business Class room on the 4th floor of the hotel which had very pleasant views across the river towards the city centre and also Durham Castle and Cathedral.
Check-in was handled quickly and efficiently by a very helpful member of the reception team. The hotel is less than 2 years old and is extremely well appointed throughout..
The Filini Restaurant is the place for breakfast, lunch and dinner and the Filini Bar is a pleasant stop off for a relaxing drink.
Other facilities in the hotel include the Pace Health Club and Emmanais Beauty Salon.
Beamish Open Air Museum and the Bowes Museum are just a short drive from the hotel and well worth a visit.
We did not stay for dinner in the hotel choosing instead to visit one of the many restaurants available just minutes away in the city centre.
We did have a very enjoyable breakfast in the restaurantthe following morning prior to checking out of the hotel to continue on our journey.
We discovered on our arrival at the hotel that it was possible to upgrade to a Business Class Room for an additional cost of £30. The complementary sevices included in the Business Class room make the additional cost very good value and would thoroughly recommend it.
We had an extremely enjoyable stay in this hotel and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Durham on business or for leisure.
