“Will be back!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2013 via mobile

Stayed here for 1 night whilst attending a friends wedding nearby. The rooms were lovely and clean, the breakfast was gorgeous but the best thing about this place is the staff. From checking in and ordering us a taxi to our venue to the girls at breakfast who looked after us with huge hangovers and the lady cleaning bar even gave us headache tablets, the service was 2nd to none. We wil, definitely come back for a break sometime thank you very much, Helen and Diane

After travelling up from Southampton, we were greeted by Kayleigh who was very friendly and booked us in, was very pleasantly surprised with the bedroom which was clean tidy and well presented, the en suite was also very good. The restaurant food was excellent as was the breakfast. Thank you for your hospitality b

We arrived and were greeted by two very friendly and helpful members of staff. We stayed in room 15 and that too was very clean and spacious. With it being a boutique hotel we thought the room may be a little cramped. Lovely comfortable king size bed and great shower. We stayed on a dbb and the evening meal very very tasty and cooked to perfection. The staff looked after us well. Breakfast was one of the best we have had in a long time for choice. We would definitely recommend this hotel. If we had to complain about anything it was guests leaving early as we faced the carpark. We would not hesitate in booking again in the future.

Going to keep this short I picked this hotel of tripadvisor and so glad we did we where coming up north to meet family not seen in years we live down south I never thought I would fall in love with a place so much. Service was excellent couldn't do enough for us from letting us check in early looking after my ice packs. The food is the best I've eaten in uk I'm really fussy and the chef looked after me the 3 nights we ate there Thai fish cakes and then he did me the best salmon ever!!!! Everyone so friendly rooms are lovely!!! We have traveled all round world and this is a wonderful place I would eat here and stay here more then I would in London!!! Thank you everyone and the seaton making our stay lovely see u in January ( just hope I can get time off). Jackie and derek x

We arrived at the Seaton Lane Inn on a Thursday afternoon and was immediately welcomed by Tracey at the bar with a lovely smile. She checked us into our room efficiently and booked a table in the restaurant for us, which was a good job as it was absolutely packed that evening.
Our room was comfortable and clean (except between the shower tray and the sink unit). We decided to have a pre-evening drink in the bar area the reason being is that children are not allowed in there, a strict rule which is upheld. (Sorry don't do kids). We eventually went to get ready for dinner and came back and again Tracey kindly showed us our table, and said goodbye to us as she was finishing for the evening. The meal was ok, nothing special. We spent the rest of the evening joining in with the pop quiz which was most enjoyable. Breakfast time arrived and we were still full so only had eggs and soldiers & a bacon butty, but it was ok, after which we checked out and went on our merry way!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
\Imagine you find your ideal country pub, enjoy a fine meal and a few drinks – why move on? Well, now you don’t have to because the Seaton Lane Inn will provide you with somewhere luxurious to lay your sleepy head – at a price you can afford. The roadside inn has been extended with an 18-bedroom hotel which is attached to the main building and overlooks a paved, outdoor area. It is well sheltered from the prevailing winds and surrounded by colourful plants – including a herb garden. At night, the paved area twinkles with sunken lights and you won’t feel cold – the powerful heat lamps do their job. The hotel’s boutique-style bedrooms have been tastefully furnished by a top quality interior design team, decorated in different styles to a high standard and equipped with plasma TV, WiFi and king-size and super king-size beds. En suite shower rooms are of a high standard and hair dryers and tea and coffee making facilities are provided. There is also luxury, ground floor accommodation for disabled guests. Door entry is by card key and guests can take their choice of visiting other North East attractions – or spend a relaxing evening enjoying the culinary delights and friendly atmosphere of the Seaton Lane Inn’s restaurant, lounge and bar. Comfort, pleasant surroundings and a choice of locally sourced food and drinks to tempt the most discerning of palates – what more could you desire? For a start, you may be looking for an ideal base to savour the best of all the North East of England has to offer. That place is the newly extended and tastefully renovated Seaton Lane Inn boutique hotel. Situated by a country road through a village, it is only a few hundred yards from the A19 – making is less than 30 minutes to Newcastle upon Tyne and equally convenient for Durham City. Sunderland is just minutes away. The Seaton Lane Inn has come a long way from its early incarnation as a blacksmith’s forge; it now incorporates a stylish lounge/dining area, traditional bar and a new two-story hotel attached to the original building. The pub/hotel is run by owners who head a talented team. Their purpose is to make your stay at the Seaton Lane Inn a memorable one – for all the right reasons. These include the friendliness of the staff, the affable type of clientele you meet in a country inn, a tempting and varied menu (try the seafood) and wide range of beers, including excellent cask conditioned ales served from the hand pump, wines and spirits. You can relax in the comfort of the lounge, which has Sky TV, or join the regulars in the adjacent bar. The new hotel has 18 en suite double rooms which are tastefully furnished and have all modern conveniences including TV and radio, wireless internet access, toiletries and tea and coffee making facilities. ... more   less
