If you are under 50 I wouldn't recommend this place at all - it is a vast, impersonal, shabby- looking dump that's way over-priced for what it is and seems to cater for people with a taste-bypass. It just goes to prove what a completely shambolic system we have for rating hotels. Overrated and over-priced.
We were kept awake until 2.30 in the morning by a load of drunks in the next room bawling, shouting and swearing. To top it all off - at breakfast the waitress had no notification of us being booked in, most of the tables were empty of people but full of breakfast things that had not been cleared away, so they dumped three of us on a table meant for 12, in a cavernous 'function room' on our own. When I complained the manager turned out to be as useful as a chocolate teapot. I asked them to cancel our breakfast as we were now going out for breakfast. And guess what? they still tried to charge us for it when we departed.
Our bedroom looked like a waiting room in a funeral parlour and the sink plug wouldn't work. The only positive things about the Ramside were that the cleanliness of the bedroom, the fact that it had loads of parking and that it's close to the A1 for a quick escape.
I wouldn't stay here again. Ever!
