Close to City Centre

The Ramside Hall is set among the greens and gardens, giving guests a relaxing environment, yet the hotel is conveniently close to Durham centre.

Great Atmosphere

With the old charm of a country club and decorative furnishings, whether visiting to gold, for a function or just in town for the night, guests found the hotel was exactly as expected.

Negative Reviews

Why Whale?

While dinner is served in sumptuous surrounds, and many guests were satisfied, some guests found the food was not up to scratch, with carvery meats left to dry Others were questioned why whale was on the menu.

Too Close For Conference

As a busy hotel, Ramside Hall has plenty of catering taking place in its conference rooms If you are not part of an event, ask to stay further from the conference area as some guests have complained of being too close, and at nights, events can become noisy.

Golf Focused

While this hotel caters well to the golfing fraternity, looking for a weekend away, a few guests who were not here for the sport found the hotel too golf-centric, to the detriment of other guests.

A Bit Expensive

While the hotel does offer a certain level of luxury, some guests found the hotel was over-priced for what was on offer.
