“Wonderful hotel & golf course”
Reviewed 28 August 2012

A lovely hotel with a great ambiance and excellent facilities, the rooms are spacious very clean and comfortable. The evening carvery was good too with plenty of choice. We were on a sunday driver which is great value. The course was in good condition and very enjoyable. The golf pavilion food was poor both on arrival and departure and needs addressing. Saying that we would not hesitate to stay again on a Sunday driver.

Lovely location, room very good, clean and comfortable. Breakfast good. Evening meal (carvery) was ok. Service in hotel good. Golf was good, in spite of the weather! However, service and quality of food in the golf club was poor. Bar was understaffed and the catering not to the same standard as in the hotel. Prices of drinks expensive in both golf club and hotel. A shame as the hotel markets its golf weekends strongly. A more consistent approach across all areas required.

We stayed at the Hotel on 24th August 2012 for friend’s Wedding Reception. We booked well in advance and got a reasonable deal. The reception staff were very pleasant and could not do enough for us, rooms were exceptional, tastefully decorated with supplies and the Wedding Facilities were perfect.

Price of a pint of lager £4.15, ouch, but some southern folk may find this acceptable, not on the North East I’m afraid.

Bar staff were very accommodating and suffered our presence well into the early hours, (Thank You Boys - The Crystal Head Vodka was outstanding).

Breakfast was lovely, but the young lady who could not be bothered to serve customers with coffee (you know who you are!!!!!) needs to find another vocation in life.

Overall an excellent venue, perfectly located, that provides brilliant facilities that went a long way to make a special evening perfect. Thank You.

We spent an enjoyable four night stay at Ramside Hall, it is in a beautiful rural location only five minutes from the City centre a perfect spot for exploring Durham City and the surrounding area. The staff were welcoming and efficient nothing was too much trouble. Our deluxe room more than lived up to expectations. The Rib Room Restaurant was excvellent in its own right. so much so that we dined there three out of four nights. Would recommend this hotel and restaurant without hesitation and would return without question.

Room Tip: Be aware that the hotel caters for weddings, however this was not a problem for us.

Booked an overnight stay for our wedding anniversary in a standard double room, we paid £119 for dinner, bed and breakfast per couple, which was very good value. We recieved a £50 voucher towards our evening meal any extras we paid for seperately. We both enjoyed a lovely fillet steak with all the trimmings, the restaurant staff were very polite and helpful.Our room was very nice with a large comfortable bed and bright modern bathroom. Breakfast was plentyful with a very good selection. Check in staff were polite and friendly and very efficient. Overall we had a lovely evening and would certainly recommend Ramside Hall, thanks to all.

Room Tip: We had a basic double room which was lovely for an overnight stay, we have stayed in a suite here be...

I am here staying until November. This is my second week so far. Hotel it's self is amazing. Food is lovely. The best about staying here for myself until November is the staff. Exceptionaly friendly. Nice. Aimee, Amy, Liz, abby, danielle, toni and christina are mostly the staff I have spoken with all in all they are all very nice. You couldn't ask for any better. Very helpful. Kind. Make the stay a whole lot better. Will defiantly be back after my stay. Would like I thank everyone at the hotel for making my stay not so boring.

We held our wedding at the Ramside hall hotel.

For both nights i stayed in the McIntyre suite which was lovely. Really spacious and the bed was comfy!

the rib restaurant was nice but waitress did forget to bring our round of drinks!

Breakfast (not that I ate much) seemed good I would pay the £5 tray charge and have delivered to the room (as we did the day after wedding). Especially if you are in suite as you have your own dining area!

Overall the wedding went well. A few issues-

The starter-did not enjoy! The person appointed to look after us-missing in action.
Top table-was set up wrong! Missing wine. Knife spray left on the table.

After a complaint to the hotel nothing was done. the Director said they had done nothing wrong but took SOME of our comments on board!

We enjoyed our wedding but wont return to hotel for anniversary or a meal out!
