“Twilight Session at Serenity Spa at Seaham Hall”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014

I booked into the Serenity Spa for relaxing evening with a friend. The staff on arrival were friendly and welcoming to the spa. The facilities are excellent - we enjoyed the outdoor hot tub even though it was windy and raining :) The meal in the restaurant was excellent with the largest king prawns I have ever seen washed down with a tasty cocktail! Well worth a visit!!

we revisited Seaham Hall this weekend as a surprise treat from my husband. WE were married there 10 years ago. The level of customer service was amazing. We were greeted as if 'old friends' and had a great relaxing afternoon in the spa. When we had finished at the spa our cases were in the room and so was a complimentary tray of chocolates and half a bottle of champagne. Again the customer service was fantastic. A lovely meal in the restaurant and the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in to end the evening. A lovely leisurely breakfast, again greeted and asked about previous day.
I would not hesitate to recommend Seaham Hall now, my family have just booked 2 nights there based on our experience.
Thank you to Catherine who was so friendly and reassuring and certainly an asset to Seaham Hall.

We loved this hotel. The extreme high level of service is evident the moment you walk through the door. The staff are extremely efficient and friendly and they are always wanting to ensure everything is perfect for you.
The actual Junior Suite we had was perfect and the walk to the spa through the tunnel just highlights the highest level of decor and design that has been used throughout this hotel.
We instantly felt relaxed here , so it didn't need to grow on you, you just knew instantly it was right for us.
We did not use the Michelin star restaurant as we were not sure it would be right for our 8 year old, but we did visit the Ozone restaurant which was more suitable and it suited our needs perfectly.
This is perfect for us , we will be back. We visit this area 2-3 times a year and they now have a new customer.

After a few of us using Seaham Hall previously for it's Spa and Treatment facilities, we were extremely excited to have booked this year to experience the Seaham Hall Christmas party night. Our girls Christmas get together is usually spent cooking at each others houses but this year we fancied something a little bit different and so we booked Seaham Hall with high expectations.
We had champagne on arrival and were taken to our table promptly and there was a really lovely Christmassy feel. The christmas tree was to die for and everyone was in good spirits. I was however suprised to see how few tables there was considering how good the deal seemed. We were in a group of 10 and we were all seated on one table which was ideal.
I couldn't wait for the meal to arrive as I'd been looking forward to it all week but I must say, I and the rest of my group were extremely disappointed from the start.
The starter was a cold potatoe and leek terrine which wasn't very nice. The potatoe didn't taste fresh and you could hardly taste any leek at all, it would have been much more palatable if it had been warm. A friend did complain to the waiter and he apologised but I guess there was nothing he could do with it being a set menu.
The main course was ok, meat was cooked beautifully and the roast potatoes were the best I've tasted anywhere but the vegetables were rock hard, all of them. The parsnips were raw and the brussell sprouts were so hard, it was a struggle to cut them.
Coffees and teas were brought out after the main course was taken away, long before the desserts had been given but with no cream, milk or sugar. By the time desserts and accompaniments arrived, the tea and coffee were both cold. The dessert wasn't anything to rave about either, very disappointing overall.
The entertainment however was fantastic, both the live singer and dj. The staff were both attentive and knowledgeable and the room and surroundings were beautiful
Overall we had a fantastic night and it was nice to do something different for a change but the food was a massive let down and we could have done better ourselves. Maybe we were wrong to expect too much from a set menu party night but considering the few tables, I and the rest of my party expected a whole lot more.
I'm not sure I would go back and because I also purchased a Champagne Afternoon Tea gift for family as a christmas gift, I now worry that they will be faced with the same disappointment when they book to experience the same.

Celebrated a Christmas birthday with a large group of friends and family. The entire Twilight Spa experience was amazing from the point of booking to checking out. The Spa area was immaculate, so tranquil and relaxing. The Ozone restaurant very well organised, food was delicious served in wonderful surroundings. A special thank you to Amanda and all staff for a truly memorable time.

For the third year running we headed off to Seaham Hall for a couple of days of autumn relaxation and pampering. The room was enormous and very comfortable, the spa was heavenly and the treatments so relaxing and invigorating and the food delicious, both at breakfast and dinner. The staff were all very friendly, helpful and professional. All in all the whole experience was brilliant and we cannot wait for autumn 2014 to come around.

My boyfriend and I have just returned from a nights stay with the 'suite sensation' offer. It was a perfect break for us. Room was lovely, staff friendly and helpful, spa is fab- especially the outdoor hot tub. We had breakfast in bed (because we are lazy) which was very yummy. For tea we ate at the Ozone which was nice but next time we would like to try the other restauraunt. We both felt the trip overall was great value for money and would definately return.

Thank you from Liam and Danielle for a fantastic time.
