Good Hotel Guide Review

‘A wonderful place, combining luxury, style and high standards with a pleasantly friendly and relaxed approach.’ This serene, ‘civilised’ Georgian country house close to the sea is ‘popular with all ages’, say trusted Guide correspondents who celebrated ‘a very special wedding anniversary in this very special place’ in 2016. (Lord Byron and Anne Isabella Milbanke were married in the upstairs drawing room in 1815). Stay in contemporary, individually styled bedrooms, each stocked with fluffy bathrobes, classy toiletries, a capsule coffee-maker. ‘Our spacious suite had a huge bed with a wonderfully soft duvet – utter luxury.’ The views are of ‘extensive grounds, beautifully landscaped’, and of the sea. Sit down to a light, pan-Asian meal in the Ozone restaurant, or dine more formally on surprising modern dishes chosen from three-course or seven-course tasting menus accompanied by a wine flight, in Byron’s Restaurant. Feeling overindulged? Reached via a peaceful, all-wood corridor, the Serenity Spa has ‘all the facilities imaginable’, including ‘a large pool, lovely just for relaxing in’. (Pauline and Stephen Glover). This hotel is a member of Pride of Britain hotels.

Guest comments

'Our second visit. A special place: utter luxury. Spacious suite, huge bed with wonderfully soft duvet and pillows. All fittings and public areas very stylish but atmosphere throughout relaxed. Staff very friendly, helpful and attentive Lovely spa area - large pool, much too warm for a proper swim but lovely for relaxing. Extensive grounds, beautifully landscaped and planted, overlooked by large terrace with view of the sea. Seaham Hall know how to turn on the treats: magnificent flowers and special chocolates. They trust their guests, eg, with proper coat-hangers, not ones for thieves. Popular with all ages, especially with young people, so informal but nevertheless wonderfully civilised. ' - Pauline & Stephen Glover - February, 2016
