The Ramside Hall Hotel and Golf Club is an imposing place. In fact, The Ramside, as it is most widely known, is the North East’s largest private hotel and golf complex. The establishment caters for a wide range of requirements including weddings, conferences, private parties and, of course, golf.
Ramside Hall was formerly the home of the Pemberton family, until it was sold and turned into a hotel in 1963.
In keeping with its origins, the country house atmosphere has been carefully preserved and the guest rooms and function rooms have been decorated and furnished accordingly. However, although the décor is traditional rather than modern, this in no way inhibits the provision of contemporary high-tech facilities such as multi channel television and wireless internet access.
While the setting and facilities are luxurious, and the whole place exudes an air of elegance and quality, there is a lighter side to The Ramside too. Popular with local people as well as corporate clients and visiting guests, the hotel hosts a variety of entertainments to suit many tastes.
A particular favourite is the selection of musical tribute acts that has proved very popular. Visitors have the opportunity to enjoy entertainment in the styles of Kenny Rogers, Dolly Parton, Tamla Motown and more. The Ramside demonstrates that there is a time and a place for everything, and it is possible for the formal and informal to co-exist successfully.
A few years ago The Ramside decided to brand their customer courtesy transport with a private number plate. The registration they eventually acquired was RAM 510E, which is displayed on a silver Mercedes minibus. As can be seen in the photographs on this page, the striking registration really does make an effective feature on the vehicle and was the perfect choice for the business.
