“Excellent, will definitely be back”
Reviewed 20 August 2011

My partner and I ate at Pan Din Thai on Friday 19 August (it was my 1st time but his 3rd) - we didn't stay overnight so cannot comment on the rooms, however the 4 course set menu was superb. There was certainly service with a smile and particular thanks goes to our waiter, Title, who couldn't do enough for us and to the owner, Norman, who took the trouble to come to every table to see that all was ok, but, all the staff deserve a pat on the back. 3 of the diners were celebrating birthdays on the night and each one was made to feel extra special. Well done Pan Din Thai - we will definitely come again.

We ddin't stay at the hotel so can not comment but thought I must comment on the excellent meal my wife and I had recently, not for the first time either. The staff are very friendly and always helpful for any request even when they were very busy. Lovely setting and lovely meal. We shall be back !!

We stayed last weekend at this hotel as we were up for a friends wedding and decided to make a few days of it so stayed from friday to monday here. On arrival we were greeted by the freindliest welcome anyone could wish for, It was a long journey for us to this hotel (400miles) so the welcome was great and were quickly shown to our rooms and offered a drink at the bar! We stayed in room 101 which I think was the best room in the place, not that I saw the other rooms but our room was so amazing! Very large with everything you could wish for including a HUGE JACCUZZI BATH!!!! WOW!!!
Eating in the restuarant was equally enjoyable with FANTASTIC THAI FOOD ON OFFER. b
Breakfast in the morning was exceptional with everything available from a full english to cereals and also fruit if reqiured. Fresh fruit juice/tea and coffee too.Free high speed wireless broadband was also available which was great for me so I could send a few pics via e-mail back home.
The place was VERY clean and most of all every member of staff both the thai staff and Norman (The owner) and Michelle (The breakfast cook/cleaner and wonder women) were all very hospitable and always had a smile for everyone.
Norman, We will be back to stay next year, this time for longer and thank you so much for such a lovely stay at your lovely hotel. Warmest regards,
James/Catherine Mason

This was not our first visit to Pan Din Thai restaurant and once again we were very impressed. The food is of a very high standard and the staff are friendly, polite and nothing is too much trouble. We can't recommend this place enough, we wil certainly be back. We live locally so have not stayed in the rooms but if they match the quality of the restaurant they will not disappoint.

We visited Pan Din Thai for New Year 2010, and also enjoyed the New Year's Eve Thai Banquet. The rooms are great, and the food amazing. We were welcomed by all members of staff in a professional and friendly manor and nothing was too much trouble! The NYE Thai Banquet was great value for money with a belly busting five courses, traditional thai entertainment, fireworks and champagne at midnight. The owner, Norman, was very friendly and made an effort to speak to everyone. Would recommend, and will be visiting again soon!

We booked this hotel 2 weeks in advance to attend a friends wedding, we were advised that they did not want credit card details, but would prefer cash when we checked in. Upon arrival the same lady that had taken our booking advised us that they had made a mistake and let our room out. Despite the fact that it was early evening, we had travelled to the area and had an infant with us, the lady was not bothered and rudely advised us to seek alternate accommodation (none available in the area) or sleep in the car!!!

Thai hospitalty is the best in the world, and to recieve a review of this nature causes great concern to us all, I have checked our bookings and confirm we have no record of your reservation, and on the evening in question we were indeed fully booked. The lady concerned is no longer employed at the restaurant. Regardless of the cause of the mistake, we should at least have tried to find you alternative accommodation and for this I apologise fully. I appreciate this must have been a difficult time for you, if you would wish to contact me in the near future, I would like to try to make amands. - Norman.

I was delighted to find this B&B which is above a thai restaurant and gallery in seaham village. I was attending a wedding in Seaham hall ( less than a mile away) where the rooms were £250 a night. Yikes! I got a perfectly adequate room for £60 in Pan Din thai. My only quibble was it was very hard to book as they wouldn't accept a credit card so I had to send a postal order for 10% and several emails. Not what you expect in this day and age.

We were able to check in at 11am whereas my friends who were staying in Seaham Hall ( very nice place) couldn't check in until 3.
