We stayed for a 2 night break with our 2 small children. staff were hospitable, we had a family room which was spacious enough, clean and comfortable.
the highlight of the stay was dining at the Rib Room- the Chateaubriand was absolutely amazing. we stayed on a dinner allowance package so the £60 for 2 was very reasonable and the portions were plentiful!
the breakfast was varied and enjoyable. the lounges and bar area was pleasant and comfortable.
the lounge with fire place with complimentary tea and coffee was lovely too. very close to drive to Durham centre and beamish.

This has to be the very best hotel we have ever stayed in.
Staff very excellent in all departments.
Hotel was spotless clean, four poster room was amazing.
The food again was brilliant.

The only fault I found with this hotel was the price of a pint at £4.30 for large, a tad expensive but saying that, your paying for the surroundings and again its is amazing.

We will definitely be back!.

We stayed at the Ramside Hall Hotel late in December and we were very happy with the feel of the place. It was relaxed and comfortable and the staff very pleasant and helpful.
Our room was very nice and well appointed, breakfast was very well presented and very enjoyable.

I will definitely be staying again.

Arriving on New Years Eve for our 2 night stay, we were joined by 2 fabulous friends, their 1st stay but our 3rd. Very efficient reception staff, found our rooms on 3rd floor very good, spotless and spacious. We had afternoon tea, the cakes, tea and coffee where fab but served by a very frosty waitress! but we were not put off as we moved into the bar for drinks, the bartender and manager there was fab. The Gala on the evening was fantastic from the starter, the buffet main course of which were different meats, spiced dishes, fish and seafood, deserts and the cheese table, all of which were servced by very efficient and helpfull staff, the Head Chef (Graham) who was carving the beef, was very helpful indeed, every single course was fabulous. Then we had the entertainment which was fantastic. The waiters/waitresses were very good, nothing was at all a bother for them. The meal in the Rib Room on the New Years Day evening was also excellent, it just finished our 2 days at Ramside Hall off with a flourish. The breakfast on both mornings were very nice, although on the first morning we were not offered a 'bloody mary' that was on the menu! As you can probably guess our 2 companies were bowled our by this New Years event and YES we will also be booking again for this years Gala. Fabulous.

Thank you for choosing Ramside Hall Hotel & Golf Club for your New Year celebrations.

Whilst I am delighted to read how pleased you were with all aspects of the event including Rib Room dining on New Year's Day, I would like to express my apologies that a member of our team had not entered into the spirit of New Year during your afternoon tea service.

I look forward to your return visit to our hotel in the very near future.

We got married at this hotel and I have no hesitation in saying how great it is. The catering was fabulous and the room (suite) we were given was the best I have ever stayed in and I have been to many hotels around the world. It was spacious and had all the luxuries of a 5 star hotel, yet this hotel is 4 star. Staff are very friendly and anyone wishing to eat out can spend the evening in the Rib Room and have a great steak or any other food from an extensive menu. We liked it so much, we have stayed there a couple of times since. They regularly have cut price weekends on and they are well worth the visit.

Room Tip: Get a room that has a view of the golf course.

We can highly recommend , family, corporate , mini break, add Ramside Hall places to stay.
We attended the Gala Ball on New Year's Eve , not to be disappointed , arriving at the venue, the trees which line the drive were tastefully decorated with an abundance of magical clear sparkling lights,
Upon entering the Black Tie event in the Ornate Ball room , (a fantastic venue for wedding, Party) you could not miss the magnificent centre piece for the champagne & cocktails upon arrival, a unique ice sculpture surrounded by Silver top hat ice buckets, which impressed everyone and gave all a topic of conversation. The rest of the room look very nice and In keeping with the event.
The service was very well orchestrated impressive & efficient managers Tim , Paul and their team Ensured that all guests received nothing other than a perfection ,exceptional !!!
The choice of top class food was astounding, beef, lamb, pork, lobster, oyster, king prawn , curry, , salad deserts that's just what I could remember , catering for everyone's dietary requirements.
We were entertained , by sensational male vocalist Jerome also a Vegas cabaret show and a disco.

Ramside Hall professional family run business, with passion and attention to detail in order to be the BEST is very apparent.

Fantastic evening, would highly recommend all !!!!!!!!!!!!

What better way to see in 2014

Returned for a mini break to The Ramside.
Got a Re furbished room. Perfect, quiet gentle colours....all fitments and finish, faultless. Large comfortable room.
I did ask to see some of the other rooms on offer, all a touch more expensive. On returning to our allocated room , felt that we had got an absolute bargain. Yes there where a little better,- a four poster bed,a slightly larger room, with a small entrance hall. But....our room was more than adequate.
Staff- all pleasant, and seemed to "enjoy their job, and wanted to do their best".
Meals - perfectly presented, quality ingredients used. All freshly prepared.
Really feel that I could find "just something negative" to balance this review.
Sorry.....even the grass, and gardens where immaculate!
My wife and I will be going back.....and just maybe, "we can catch em out!" (LoL)
More than happy to recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Suggest...ask for a room away from the dining /entertainment areas?
