Good Hotel Guide Review

Overlooking Durham’s heritage coast, this Georgian mansion, all sea views and sofas for sinking into, is ‘a wonderful place, combining luxury and style with a friendly, relaxed approach’. Styling throughout is contemporary – bold going on audacious. Spacious bedrooms, each equipped with bathrobes, slippers and an espresso machine, are individually styled; some have French windows that open onto a private terrace and garden. ‘Our large suite had a huge bed with a wonderfully soft duvet – utter luxury.’ Pick among a choice of eating places. Ozone restaurant serves light meals of pan-Asian fare; in Byron’s restaurant – where the rich colours are inspired by a portrait of the mad, bad poet, who entered into an ill-fated marriage here – chef Ross Stovold’s daily-changing menu places the emphasis on locally sourced ingredients. A typical dish: aged beef sirloin, celeriac, mushroom tapioca, fondant potato. Beaches and rugged cliffs await, with walking and cycling routes along the coast (and bicycles to borrow), but choose to dilly-dally: an atmospheric walkway leads to the Serenity Spa and its swimming pool, ‘lovely just for relaxing in’.

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
