THE latest phase of a multimillion-pound development of a hotel is due to be unveiled in coming weeks.

Ramside Hall Hotel, in Carrville, Durham, is set to open its new accommodation wing next month, which will feature 47 premier rooms.

The hotel says it will create what it believes to be the “largest and most luxurious” presidential suite in the region, complete with a seven-foot wide bed and a free-standing copper bath.

The new wing will also include two family rooms and two junior suites. “We have done everything possible to ensure our guests have a memorable and comfortable stay in luxurious surroundings,” said hotel owner John Adamson.

The new wing is part of a £16million development at Ramside Hall, which includes the creation of a £3million second championship golf course on the site, which opened last September in a ceremony led by war veteran Bill Allchurch.

The final stage will be the opening of the spa in July.

The facilities will include a 25metre pool, a vitality pool, external infinity pool and a spa garden, along with a variety of steam rooms, saunas and a Rasul mud chamber.

It also includes a gym, aerobics and dance studio, hair salon, Asian restaurant and bar, and 12 treatment rooms using ESPA products.

The venue has said it would look to Wearside as it recruited 100 new members of staff to help run the extension, with the newcomers to join the 400 workers already employed by Ramside Estates.
