Gryffindor and Slytherin represent the two highest lordiest houses.
Ravenclaw represented the middle class
Hufflepuff represented the working class or poor class.
The two high lording houses represented the good lords and the bad lords like most British mythological stories do.
They were a sort trip in the Ravenclaw one. But they have been described
Why didn't Harry ever sneak out to Hogsmeade with Hermione on his broomstick and under his invisibility cloak and have a night on the village with Hermione before getting a room at the inn with her to spend the night?
