“Valentines Break . . .”
Reviewed 2 March 2012

Stayed in the Ramada on Valentines night with my boyfriend for one night.Staff at Reception were friendly and welcoming.

The room we stayed in was large and spacious.It was very bright and clean, however I thought the bathroom was slightly dated and need of cheering up.

As we were part of a package deal for Valentines we recieved chocolates, roses, strawberries and sparkling wine which was defiently a great touch.

Dinner itself in the dining room was excellent.Great service and the menu was extensive.At the table we were also given another bottle of sparkling wine.

The night sleep however was a bit of a disappointment as it was far to warm even though the radiheaters were turned off.Ive never tried to sleep anywhere before with windows and curtains both open.

The breakfast the next morning again was extensive a mixture between hot and cold food.The hot food was buffet style, I feel if the hot breakfast was to be made to order it would benefit the hotel immensely.

All in all an excellent hotel very clean and presentable, staff were very friendly and willing to help at any cost, I would stay here again with no worries in my mind.

Room Tip: Try and ask for a room which is not above the kitchen . . . Far too warm.

The hotel was fine, not particularly outstanding, and we could have stayed at other hotels that would have been as comfortable and clean, but the staff were exceptional and that's what made all the difference. The front desk staff epitomize what service should be like, friendly, helpful, efficient. They couldn't do enough for us, even after we checked out! The front clerk suggesting we leave our car in their park and take a taxi, which she called for us, instead of trying to find and pay for parking in the city core. They also stored our luggage all day while we went sightseeing. In the end we decided to stay another night.

Had a one night stay last Friday and did enjoy it. Not the place to go for activities, just to relax. The bar and restaurant are beautiful and food what you would expect, pub grub. We got the early bird menue, two courses for a tenner and was really nice and drinks are reasonably priced.
Room was spot on, clean, warm and two big double beds so lots of space. There was no real entertainment the night we went but I think Saturday is a better night.
We got this for £50 as an early booking offer and I would go again for the same for a relaxing night away.
If I have one issue its the way they mark £50 off your account in case you make any charges to the room or drink the wine in your room.
It has been a week and I am still waiting on it showing back on my account.

As always, a warm welcome, outstanding friendly service and excellent value! Staying at this hotel is an absolute pleasure. We always look forward to trips North, knowing that such a welcoming, well run and pleasant setting awaits us. The staff are amazing. Special thanks on this occasion to Grainne and Nicola. We didnt dine in the hotel on this occasion due to our late arrival, but in the past have always enjoyed excellent food and service there. I look forward to returning to the Da Vinci hotel in the near future!
