"just as expected"
Everything was just as you would expect from this standard of hotel. Polite and friendly receptionist. The room was nice and comfy. We ate at the Rib room, if you like steaks and don't mind paying a price for them, I would recommend booking a table. Great choice of meat cuts and wine to go along side them. Its not cheap but well worth treating yourselves […] to it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A lovely stay"
My partner and I stayed here for two nights as we were guests at a wedding being held here. Our room was spacious, with a lovely super king size bed. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Staff at the wedding reception were very professional and efficient. Breakfast was a tad pricey, but was all-you-can-eat and the range of products was g […] ood.

"Brilliant hotel, brilliant staff"
This is a brilliant hotel, it really is that simple to review. We stayed 2 nights and the staff in the bar and the carvery were excellent. A lovely hotel with a great atmosphere, the decor was a little dated, but nothing that you couldn't live with.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Everything good. Nothing bad"
For the record. I'm male and 39 years of age. I stay in a lot of hotels in my work travels. I was finding it difficult to find a hotel in area that appealed to me. Some hotels although seemed a reasonable price did not look that inviting. I chose the Ramside because of the great reviews and good pictures although the pictures could do some attention, […] they still don't do it justice. I was greeted well at reception, all smiles and politeness. Offered help with my case which I managed myself. The room was wasy to find and easy to enter. The room was very comfortable, so much so that I had a quick nap before deciding to go down to the Bar & Grill. Food was awesome. Very tasty and priced Well. Staff were very attentive and polite. My night was very restful and I slept well without being woke with noise as I've experienced in other hotels. The other hotel guests all appeared to be respectful and well behaved. In short. Lovely hotel. Comfortable quiet room. Very clean bathroom. Great food and facilities. And a wonderful farewell from reception. Absolutely notjing to complain about.

Booked a deluxe room here so my girlfriend & I could crash after an Xmas party at the golf club next to the hotel. Apart from finding it difficult to locate our room once we checked in (the place is set up like a maze), the staff, room & hotel were all top class. Our room was perfect. The hotel exuberated a very romantic & traditional Albion-like charm […] throughout the grounds. Nice bar on site & the morning breakfasts are relatively good as well. Looking forward to my next stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Restaurant, but poor services"
Good Restaurant, but poor services. The Internet wireless service was extremely poor in the room, the bathroom fan was extremely noisy. The room was cold when i arrived, and only heated by a tiny electrical heater. Overall not very impressed for a business stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"A lovely hotel, fantastic location and facilities"
sadly the only thing that let my stay down were the people in the next room, i was in room 302 which had an adjourning door, this i don't think helped. They rolled into the room at gone 1am, at 3.30am they started fighting and what can only be described as a nasty drunken slagging and hitting match, this lasted for about 20min and at 6am they started […] again with the fighting, I am so glad my children weren't with me on this trip to hear a nasty and violent confrontation. Such a shame life is far to short for such instances of aggression. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely hotel but shame about the heating..."
When we got there we were a bit surprised with how big the room is and the view we had of the golf course. It was a shame that the room was so cold cos the central heating was not working and they were using electric heaters! It kept on clicking throughout the night and going cold and hot that we couldn't sleep. It's a real shame cos that kinda ruined […] it... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
II cant rate this fantastic hotel highly enough.The building is a smaller version of a stately home. our room was extremely large and well furnished with comfy chairs we sank into. The bed was very large and comfortable,as for the bathroom Idont think Ive ever seen such a long and deep bath in any other hotel except perhaps Claridges. The staff were […] friendly and efficient. Our reason for staying was a family funeral so a sad occasion and we needed to have somewhere to unwind where we would feel a little spoilt .

"Wish we ahd found this place sooner."
Ovedrallk, very happy. Nice hotel, nice people, good service. Few minor niggles like lighting in the room was a bit poor (energy saving lights), automatic light and extractor fan coming on whenever you walk near the bathroom (constant and noisy), lack of additional services, e.g. gym, pool , salon but overall very happy. Good price for time of year […] (graduation week). Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Far better than you'd expect"
This is a bigger hotel than you'd expect with a adjacent golf course that seems popular with locals for the carvery and for weddings. It is not a remote country house hotel but you cannot walk to it from Durham city centre either as it's on the other side of the A1. We arrived early and they let us check in which was great. The staff overall were very […] good except for one surly girl working in the carvery area who clearly looked like she didn't want to be there. The carvery was surprisingly good - the meat wasn't dry as is often the case. Drinks were a little on the pricey side and I say that as a Londoner. The room and bathroom were excellent and of a high quality with Sky Sports 1 and 2 available. Location is ideal for Durham and the driving range is excellent value too.

I arrived quite a late '22:00' and the hotel staff offered to get some food made for me. Unfortunately I had already eaten, but i'll remember that for next time. The beds are so comfortable and had a great nights sleep. I will definitely say at the hotel again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Ramside Hall - good for business stay"
Nice hotel, nice staff, choice of Carvery or a la carte restaurants. Rooms well appointed, just off motorway but with that in mind it's convenient for Durham if you have your car or not too expensive a taxi. Would recommend it. Didnt try it, but apparently the wifi can be a bit problematical though think that are is a bit of a black spot so in wys maybe […] hard to criticise on that point.

"Lovely old charm hotel"
07/29/14 Peter H Chorley, United Kingdom
I stayed here three times over the last 2 weeks , great price and good value at £89 per night B & B The breakfast is one massive amount of everything you can think off (too much choice :) ) They have two restraunts One is a bit pricy so stick with the cheaper one The rooms are old but full of old room charm with tall ceilings and modern furniture with good showers, they are all very quiet as far enough away from the main road The only possible negative is there is no health club :( the positive is they are building a new one with suites, looking at the pictures on the boards around the site it looks out of this world Can't wait until spring 2015 #Please note there is no building noise at all#
"Lovely place to stay"
07/28/14 foxterrier2 Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
The hotel is set in beautiful grounds - perfect for a warm sunny day. Traditionally furnished to a high standard in all public areas. Very friendly and welcoming staff. We booked a superior bedroom which was very spacious and the bathroom was lovely too. Just let down by a couple of things - some of the furnishings were a little bit on the tatty side due to age and the view we had was of a building site! The hotel is building a spa retreat centre due to open next year. Full English breakfast was very good. Continental breakfast was disappointing - not a great deal of choice. No cold meats and the cheeses were individually pre-packed processed type cheeses. Would have expected to see some continental cold meats and cheeses in a hotel of this calibre. Overall though, a great place to stay and there is a Park & Ride public car park a short distance from the hotel. Only takes a few minutes on the bus into Durham City which is well worth a visit.

Excellent staff – the staff were fantastic at setting everything up, making sure the day ran smoothly, and above all, the staff were very polite and friendly. It all contributed to us enjoying our wedding day. The rooms are really nice – beautiful bathrooms. Thank you.
"Unbelievable ..... Perfect wedding venue for my son and daughter-in-law"
07/20/14 Maria4265 Durham
I've recently stayed at Ramside for my step son's wedding. I could not of asked for a more perfect day from the first meeting with Sarah to the day itself. Check in was simply, quick and very friendly. We ate in the carvery the night before the wedding and got two main meals for £10-bargain. On the day we met Christina and her team. who I can say worked hard to make this day perfect for them, herself and her staff were on hand at all times and even catered for the awkward family members-Massive thank you. Breakfast was extensive plenty of choice only downfall-could have had more staff on a busy Sunday but self service is helpful. Thank you Ramside for this amazing day.
"Whats not to like!!"
07/20/14 croydonflightpath London, United Kingdom
We stayed for three nights at the Ramside Hall hotel recently and had a brilliant time. We visited Durham town, went up to see the Angel of the North (or Rusty Rita as we're told she's known as) and spent almost a whole day in the excellent Beamish Museum. There is so much else to do in the area that we just have to come back. Our room was superb, especially the huge double ended bath in the room and the bed the most comfortable we have slept in for a long time (including our own!). This is a really lovely hotel with staff that really know how to make you feel welcome and genuinely care about your well-being. We eat in the Rib room on the first night and although we thought we would try out the Carvery, in the end we never strayed and eat in the Rib room for all three nights as the food was so good. Breakfast was brilliant and a hotel that manages to make decent softly, scrambled eggs on a breakfast buffet deserves all the praise you can throw at it. Needless to say, we want to come back and look forward to visiting next year when the new Spa complex opens.

Spacious and clean rooms, brilliant customer service.The hotel is really comfortable and furnishhings and decor really nice, home form home. The steaks in the resturant were really lean and tasty and so was the rest of the food. The choice of food at breakfast was extensive. Was very impressed, good value fo rmoney.
"One night stay but won't be the last."
07/15/14 Gooner66iw Letchworth, United Kingdom
I was only at the hotel for one night but it made a very good impression. Although a significant re-development was under way it did not cause any loss of service. The check-in was smooth and efficient and the suite (313) was one of the best I have ever stayed in, just a pity I never had the Mrs with me! A fabulous suite with a big walk in shower was the focal point of the bathroom but the jewel was the four poster, I've never had one before! Very comfortable and the whole room was beautifully appointed. Breakfast was on a self serve buffet style but everything was cooked to perfection and plenty of variation was available, more from the menu if booked in advance. This was my first stay here but hope it isn't the last.
"Ramside Hall Hotel"
07/13/14 David L Bournemouth, United Kingdom
Spent four wonderful nights here visiting Durham, Beamish museum and Bishop Aukland Castle. No need to venture out in the evenings for a bite. As the hotel catered for most taste in the way of food. The room was lovely and large and well made-up each day. The Team around the hotel could not have looked after our need better. A memorable first stay and well done to all. David and Miranda from Bournemouth
"Wedding stay, ok."
07/13/14 mems1980 Liverpool, United Kingdom
We stayed after a friends wedding. If you're at a wedding then you should get a slightly discounted room. I've stayed a few times after various functions and the hotel is nice but I wouldn't go any further. The rooms I feel are slightly overpriced but it's nice as a treat. Don't bother with the room service. We paid £20 for the driest sandwiches I had ever had and we couldn't eat them. I wouldn't be surprised if they were taken straight from the Buffett from 5 hours before. It is a very beautiful hotel, bathroom was gorgeous and opulent, room was large however we had a four poster, this was only because no normal doubles were left at the time of booking. Breakfast was lovely and self serve full English. You could have something else if you wanted to order The ramside is exactly what you would expect really. Just wish they charged a bit less! I will say however drinks are very very overpriced. We were drinking soft drinks for best part of the day and still managed to spend nearly £180 between us!
07/10/14 Julie B Doncaster, United Kingdom
I stayed here on Tuesday night (after a wedding). The rooms are lovely and such a fab view. They have such comfy beds...and lots of tea and coffee. They actually state that more can be supplied...even fruit! I enjoyed the wedding and they even catered for a vegan like me...thank you. The staff were very helpful, even getting us into the room early...which was so helpful as we had to get ready for the wedding. The staff were helpful throughout and I just thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you Ramside
