“Great hotel”
Reviewed 8 February 2013 via mobile

Stayed here as i was attending an awards dinner. My room was large, clean and had the best bed I have ever slept in. The shower was powerful and the staff friendly and efficient. Location is minutes from the A1. My only regret was not bringing my golf clubs as the course looks great.

Stayed February 2013, travelled on business

I have stayed at the Ramside Hall twice in the last month on business. The whole place has a spacious feel, extending to the bedrooms. On both stays I have had a superior room booked on a deal through Booking.Com. Huge room, LCD telly, good free wi-fi and big comfortable bed. I have dined in the carvery on both occasions purely for time and laziness purposes. Again plenty of room, average food (not a carvery fan anyway), but good bar (with a couple of real ales) and decent staff. I will stay again when back in the area.

Took up the winter offer of £99 per room which includes a £50 credit for the Rib Room. Fantastic value for money. The rooms are good, very spacious and clean, bed was fine but why do hotels insist on making a double bed with two singles- so you end up with that awful ridge in the middle.. As usual the staff at the Ramside were courteous and professional, only one complaint, the maids were very noisy going about their EARLY morning cleaning, woke us up. So with the dodgy bed and the noise I didn't really come home feeling rested. Food in the Rib Room was fantastic, best steak we've had for a while, you won't be disappointed. I agree with Gareth24, there isn't really much to do if you don't like golf, some other leisure activities would make this a much better stay, but for £99 its worth a one night visit at this normally depressing time of year

Stayed at the Farmhouse for 60th birthday treat. Fantastic self catering accommodation for 10 + 2 right in the middle of the golf course. Meals in hotel were excellent. We also booked a few rooms in the hotel itself and they were above expectation. Staff brilliant.

Room Tip: Farmhouse great for family get together

We stayed up here for a friends function they were holding, hotel was easy to find and two minuets of the motorway which was great, the hotel was pretty nice, room about average for what you paid for, the hotel was very clean which is always good! We went for lunch when we got there and the only thing that was on offer was the carvery which was pretty grim, not a big fan, although I was told by a friend the golf club bar did better food for lunch. I stayed there as we were at this function, but I don't think I would go back for a weekend as it didn't have much to offer unless you like golf, which you can have a great time I would guess. Not a bad hotel, but not a great one you would want to just spend a long weekend at.

My partner and I had a fantastic stay at Ramside Hall, staying in deluxe room, over the new year period. Our evening meal was superb and we ate in the The Rib Room, a fine dining experience not to be missed. We can't wait to return when the soon the be completed spa is finished !

Room Tip: Bring your golf clubs !
