Ramside Hall Hotel near Durham is one of the region’s most popular venues, hosting a wide variety of business events, celebrations, awards and charity dinners.

And now the hotel is welcoming more business, following on from a complete makeover of its Bishops Suite. The suite can take up to 600 guests and can also be divided into three smaller rooms, making it a flexible space suitable for meetings and for balls or awards.

The refurb has included redecoration, new carpets and curtains to give the room a brighter look. The two bar areas have also undergone a revamp and new mood lighting has been installed.

“The Bishops Suite is always in great demand and we’re expecting this to increase further now that it has been refreshed,” said John Adamson, owner of Ramside Hall Hotel. “We have already had great feedback from people who have seen it and we fully anticipate that it will continue to attract events.”

The hotel also has a ballroom which can take up to 320 guests, the Fountain Room which can take up to 60 and a number of smaller meeting rooms.

The refurbishment of the suite is the latest investment at Ramside Hall, following on from the creation of a £8m luxury spa, the addition of a wing of rooms and an additional championship golf course in the past 18 months.
