I went to Durham for my hen night with the girls, we all stayed in the Raddison Blu Hotel and loved it. The location is great, yes the hotel is a lot more expensive than other local accommodation types but we wanted a bit of comfort. The rooms are very spacious and clean, we also took advantage of the spa...

Stayed for one night - £210 for a dirty room - overpriced with rude staff - travel lodge has higher standards ! Stay elsewhere not worth the money - cold breakfast and bad coffee - on top of all that an extra charge for parking - shameful - worryingly the car park is managed by an officious third party just...

The hotel is in a great location close to the train station and center of town. From my room I see the cathedral, castle and river. The hotel is modern and the rooms are large. The hotel is very expensive for what you get so maybe consider staying in Newcastle where there is more competition and take the short train...

Lovely big room with a view over the river. Service from all staff was excellent , as was the food at breakfast and dinner. Easy access to town from the bridge in front of the hotel and in 10 minutes you will be at the cathedral. Just across the bridge is an eating and drinking area which was really lively...
