We have just stayed here for a birthday treat in the McIntyre Suite. Our stay was very nearly perfect but a few minor negatives stopped it from being 100%. We arrived around 3PM, plenty of parking spaces available. Check-in was easy and a concierge took our bags to our suite while we booked a 2 hour time slot into the... More

Stayed here for one night but what an excellent experience. Everywhere at Ramside Hall is spotlessly clean and well maintained. Room was large with everything you needed. Restaurant , bar and reception staff were friendly and efficient. The food in the restaurant was excellent. Next visit will be for two nights as we originally wanted but couldn't do due to... More

Visited for 1 night, stay and dine offer. Absolutely fantastic from start. Staff were very helpful. Our room was lovely and the ensuite was well equipped. Our visit to the spa was wonderful. We ended our evening with dinner in the rib room. The steak and halibut were cooked to perfection. Well worth visiting for a night or two

I had the carvery lunch today along with several other people. It was very disappointing. The plates advertised as hot were cold, the vegetables also barely warm and virtually tasteless. As a fan of Ramside Hall, if I were asked if I would come again for a lunch, I would decline. Really not good value. Management really let down by... More

I stayed at Ramside Hall earlier this year and it was beautiful. The room was spectacular - very spacious with a huge bed, also a big tv on the wall. The leisure facilities were another point I could not complain about. Reception staff were all round helpful. I found it strange that you are expected to leave your room in... More
