“Durham on business”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2013

Comfortable hotel with large well furnished and equipped rooms. Stayed B and B and breakfast was good served in a pleasant dining room full of character. Best thing about the hotel for me was the staff and their service. Welcoming and helpful, they made my brief stay enjoyable.

On the whole, this experience wasn't bad. The rooms are spacious, sleep quality is good, service is friendly and efficient. The issue with this hotel is its appearance. It resembles something from the early 90's - all chintz and dark wood - and makes a poor attempt at contemporary decor by, for example, lining up vast amounts of empty bottles of wine in the restaurant. Breakfast choice was good, however, and as the closest, decent hotel to Doxford Park (Sunderland) it's somewhat of a necessity - I just wish it would move into the 21st century!

We stayed here for my husband's 50th birthday, the room we stayed in had recently been refurbished and was fantastic, the building itself is beautiful. We ate in the steak resteraunt where the food and service were excellent. Overall the staff were a credit to the hotel. We will definitely be returning.

Staff are friendly and courteous, room ( presidential suite) was spacious with 3 piece suite, dining table, balcony and great shower .Breakfast is mainly self service but very nicely done.
The only slight downside was when we were on our way to breakfast and saw matresses being burned in the open with toxic smoke billowing up into the atmosphere, not very eco friendly and took the edge off a very nice stay.

Clean, comfortable, well equipped rooms. Booked this stay for business but will defiantly return for a weekend break. Main restaurant whilst a little bit over priced is extremely well run. Free internet which is easily accessible enables you to get on with business.

We had an overnight stay in the Ramside Hotel, Durham. It was Fab! The hotel decor was lovely and our room had a really big and comfortable bed. We ate in the restaurant and had a carvery. The food was very reasonably priced and very good. All staff were very polite and helpful. There were lots of places to relax and chat. The only negative comment would be that our room was a little cold.
I would definatly stay there again, in fact plan to book another mini break mext month. I may even pay for an upgrade next time!!!

We stayed at Ramside Hall overnight as we were attending a ball and didn't want to risk driving home in the middle of winter.

Given the number of people attending the ball, the staff were very efficient and the food was reasonable for mass produced fare.

Our room was just a few yards from the bar area and banquet room, which was great for us staggering back after midnight. The room was clean and comfortable.

As a whole the hotel has a great atmosphere and buzz about the place and we would recommend it to anyone wanting an overnight stay in the Durham area (it is just 10 mins drive to the centre of Durham and there is even a park and ride car park two minutes away).

The only slight downside, apart from golf, there are no leisure facilities. A gym and small pool would be a welcome addition and what people have come to expect in hotels of this quality.
