Attended a close friend's family wedding in Durham and had an overnight stay at the Radisson Blu hotel. This hotel is absolutely superb, from the dedicated, friendly and efficient staff to the beautiful bedrooms. The food was excellent and the breakfast even better. It is situated by the river and about a 5 mins walk from the city. Nothing bad...

Arrived 8.30 pm and given upgrade to suite! Yippee! Nothing was too much trouble for the staff at reception, bars and restaurant. Hotel spotlessly clean and all amenities in room. Used the leisure centre early on Sunday morning and that too was spotless! Lovely hotel, lovely friendly staff and great location.

Lovely modern hotel and in a prime position for walking over the bridge to the shops and the Cathedral. The rooms are well appointed, clean, tastefully decorated, and everything you would expect, is provided. My Sister and I stayed for 2 nights as part of a coach trip. The first night the food came out of the kitchen quite quickly,...
