A lovely hotel in a beautiful setting. Very friendly staff. We stayed in the presidential suite and they accommodated our small dog. breakfast was brilliant and the rib room food is second to none.
Close to Durham in a beautiful setting.
Thank you for a wonderful break.

Booked a family get together in the Rib Room on Sunday evening. We took advantage of the 2 steaks deal which made for good value. The room has plenty of character and the atmosphere was very relaxed. The service was excellent and our steaks were very good; the restaurant manager recommended 2 red wines that we enjoyed very much and complimented the meal. We had a most enjoyable evening and will certainly visit again in the future.

This is an excellent hotel with a good atmosphere. The breakfast was very good quality and value for money. we didn't have a great outlook from our room but as we were out and about during the day this didn't matter so much. But the room was very clean and general standards in the hotel were excellent. I would recommend anyone to come and stay here and feel at home in the very pleasant surroundings.

Booked 2 double rooms via hotels.com for 1 night before Great North Run.
Hotel lovely, comfortable with good decor and furnishings, and modern bathrooms.
Only buts...
Room rate via booking agent was more expensive than what the hotel was offering on their website and excluded breakfast so worth checking.
Asked if rooms quiet after reading previous reviews & told yes, but had humming noise all night, sounded like a water heater or extractor? However no noise from hotel reception below or from the car park which we overlooked.
Bathroom lights operate by a movement sensor and activated for no reason at 5.30am and went off when in bathroom on a couple of occasions?
Lastly no fridge or safe in rooms.

We stayed overnight whilst attending a ball on 7th September and had the most amazing room which had a free standing bath in the room. You could bathe whilst looking out into the gardens. It was one of the loveliest rooms we have stayed. The staff were so friendly, courteous and helpful. The wonderful food completed our stay. Thank you to all concerned at making us feel so very special during our stay.

Room Tip: Enjoy your Ramside experience!

We stayed for 2 nights, a repeat visit, this time mixing business and pleasure. 2 exceptional bedrooms 344 large twin, 345 four poster room. Both have super bathrooms especially 345 the four poster room. Forgot to bring travel cot, this was rectified immediately. Dined in the Rib Room on Sunday at lunchtime with friends, super food and lovely service, great Yorkshire Puds!
Room service quick and efficient. Breakfast on Monday morning before departing was first class. Fresh, tasty, no complaints. On the business front a very successful day with efficient help on all fronts. Thank You Team Ramside

Room Tip: 345 a four poster room has a superb bathroom, very nice and so spacious.

We decided to stay at this hotel to avoid the inflated cost of hotel in Newcastle during the Bupa Great North Run.

This hotel met our needs perfectly, good access to Newcastle via metro.

Staff on reception helpful and friendly.

Booked into the McIntye Suite for 2 nights. Great Value.

The room was spacious and decorated beautifully. It had very good views of the garden. the bed was very comfortable and facilities were great.

We reported that the TV in the lounge of the suite was not working on the morning of the second day. It would not normally be a requirement on a trip away but following the run we fancied relaxing in the lounge before going for a meal. This was not fixed. We didn't mention it again as we didn't want maintenance team in the room whilst we were trying to relax. Slight disappointment for otherwise a great room.

We ate in the steak house within the hotel on the first night. We enjoyed the food so much that we returned on the second night. Enough variety on the menu ensured that this was possible.

We will return to this hotel if we are in the area again.
