“Wedding stay, ok.”
Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

We stayed after a friends wedding. If you're at a wedding then you should get a slightly discounted room.
I've stayed a few times after various functions and the hotel is nice but I wouldn't go any further.
The rooms I feel are slightly overpriced but it's nice as a treat.
Don't bother with the room service. We paid £20 for the driest sandwiches I had ever had and we couldn't eat them. I wouldn't be surprised if they were taken straight from the Buffett from 5 hours before.
It is a very beautiful hotel, bathroom was gorgeous and opulent, room was large however we had a four poster, this was only because no normal doubles were left at the time of booking.
Breakfast was lovely and self serve full English. You could have something else if you wanted to order
The ramside is exactly what you would expect really. Just wish they charged a bit less!
I will say however drinks are very very overpriced. We were drinking soft drinks for best part of the day and still managed to spend nearly £180 between us!

Stayed June 2014, travelled as a couple

Thank you for your comments and can i say that we would not have used sandwiches from a previous buffet. We also check our prices on a regular basis with other 4 star hotels on both room rates and bar prices. Once again thank you for your comments

I stayed here on Tuesday night (after a wedding). The rooms are lovely and such a fab view. They have such comfy beds...and lots of tea and coffee. They actually state that more can be supplied...even fruit!

I enjoyed the wedding and they even catered for a vegan like me...thank you. The staff were very helpful, even getting us into the room early...which was so helpful as we had to get ready for the wedding. The staff were helpful throughout and I just thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Thank you Ramside

Room Tip: We overlooked the front and it was just perfect

A nice hotel, will be even better when the building and refurbishment is complete
Stayed for two night to attend a graduation in Sunderland
Good access to both Sunderland and Durham.
Plenty of choice for restaurant in the hotel although breakfast was poor quality for the price.
Room was good size

We were there for a graduation. It felt like they were too busy with other things to pay proper attention to their guests. Our daughter had to ask to move rooms twice due to the school proms and they were rather unsympathetic! The room was musty although comfortable. Top marks though for their response to earrings left behind and getting them back to us.

Room Tip: Be careful....

Had a short overnight stay for a wedding function and what a delightful stay . Check in was very smooth, staff were excellent and very friendly . Room was a good size and we overlooked the golf course so very scenic .
Function room was large and spacious and decorated to a very high standard . We had a brilliant night and slept very well........ not sure if this was down to how comfortable the beds were or off the alcohol but overall a lovely stay and would definitely return .

Room Tip: Ones facing the golf course and not the car park

Very well appointed rooms with high standard of fit-out at very reasonable price. Located approximately 3 kilometres from city centre but a park and ride station with bus into centre is within walking distance. Restaurant and bistro located within the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for room with outlook to gardens.
