Stopped over on Christmas Eve. Got an extremely warm welcome when booking in off the receptionist and offered mulled wine and mince pies.

We had booked a room with a four poster bed and the room was amazing and spotlessly clean. The bathroom was very large and beautiful.

The bar and surrounding areas were lovely and well decorated. We ate in the rib room and meal was wonderful and great value for money

Over all our stay was wonderful and look forward to coming back

Stayed overnight Saturday 12/01/13 as an after Christmas/New Year treat for sister and myself. Booked January deal online/hotel website.Delighted with deal.Smooth transaction.Smooth check in.Friendly first impression.Allocated room 201 on the first floor.On entering room and seeing huge bed we were immediately impressed.Bed was extremely comfortable.We ventured through the various lounges in the hotel, decor lovely throughout communal areas. All staff were extremely helpful.We ate in the carvery, very nice. Attended the Buble/Murs tribute night. Would like to say a special thank you to Paul Dickenson (manager)apologies if surname incorrect. Paul went that extra mile in making our stay extremely enjoyable.My son and his partner stayed weekend previous and ate in the Rib Room, recommends the food there highly, especially the fillet on the bone.We would recommend Ramside Hall to our family and friends.We did not use sauna/steam room as they were separate from the main building.

Booked a January deal for tribute night, very impressive on arrival, check in speedy and pleasant. What can I say about our room, WOW, thought we had been given the wrong room. Very large with massive & comfortable bed, bathroom well stocked and good shower.
Lots of little nooks and crannies with comfortable sofas/armchairs. Evening buffet was not the best but was still adequate, breakfast excellent choice.
Will definitely be returning

We attended a Christmas Night in the Mirrored Ballroom. On arrival the service from the staff was second to none. We were greated and booked in, advised on the room and also the function room we were attending. On arrival in our room we were impressed with the size and facilities. Excellent stay would definately use again.

We attended the New Year's Eve Galla Buffet in the Ball Room again, and were again amazed at how fantastic our evening was. The staff and service was second to none, with a fantastic selection and choice of food from the buffet, catering for all tastes. Our party was extremely happy with the food on offer and the entertainment was superb!!!!
We would recomend to anyone and everyone wishing to have a brilliant start to their New Year to attend the New Year's Eve Galla Buffet at the Ramside!!!!
To some it up in one word 'FABULOUS!!!!'

Stayed at Ramside Hall for one night on a Sunday evening as a birthday treat for my partner. Upon arrival we were immedaitely impressed however, we had to stand at reception for 10 minutes whilst what looked like the head receptionist chatted away to some friends, we were then greeted by a young, pleasant receptionist who was very polite and helpful. Our deluxe double was of high standard and deffinately felt like a home from home! The room was spcaious with its own settee and flat screen t.v. not forgetting the king size bed. We also had dinner booked in the Rib Room - staff were always on hand and quick service. Steak was to die for! Overall, I would certainly reccomend Ramside Hall & I'm looking forward to going back in the future maybe for a tribute night. Thanks again for a lovely stay.

Room Tip: If you have the option pay a little extra for a deluxe.
