Why have we not considered this hotel before ? A question I have been asking myself over and over again since arriving home from our short break at the Seaham Hall Hotel .
Answer , I don't know , as what we found , can only be described as a 'little gem ' of a hotel.
Having travelled the world , but over recent years spending quite a bit of time travelling to the N.E. Of England , for one reason or another , all I can say is why haven't we stayed here before . It's good , very good.! It's warm and inviting in a laid back kind of way. It's facilities are perfect , truly perfect. It's location just right. Food 100% . Spa beyond belief ! Rooms refined and elegant ....and ...... I really could go on!
Suffice it to say , the one thought I have in writing this review is that I have now let the secret out , which means its just become harder for me to book a room for our next visit !

Room Tip: Not a chance ... I'm keeping that secret to myself !

Stayed for one night mid week. Excellent value. Spa lovely, clean and well staffed. Only negative is some areas a little tired looking but all, apart from some pool jets,in good working order. Missed being able to relax round the pool with a drink, could plastic glasses not be used?
Treatments gorgeous! Therapists excellent and very professional.
Room fantastic! Heavenly bed and bedding and loved all of the special extras that make this a truely indulgent treat! Our highlight was our breakfast! Worth the service charge to have it served in our room. Excellent quality, fresh and tasty!
We will be back!!!

Came to Serenity Spa with 2 friends and had a fabulous day with excellent treatments, facilities and food. We were there the same day as a huge One Direction concert was happening in nearby Sunderland. This turned out to cause a problem when we tried to get a taxi back to the train station. It was after trying about 6 local taxi firms that one of the members of staff, Tracy, stepped in and took us in her own car. Fantastic service. There's not many places would do that for you. Would definately recommend and will definately return.

My friend and I have just returned from a special offer break at Seaham Hall comprising 3 nights for the price of 2 including dinner, bed and breakfast and 3 treatements each in Serenity Spa. It was almost a perfect weekend but for a few things: The 'free' bottle of champagne on arrival had to be asked for and it was Prosecco - Trade Description slip up there. The service in the Bryon restaurant was slow and not as perfect as it could have been - overcooked scrambled eggs the first day, hard poached eggs the second day and undercooked chips one evening (not good for AA rosette winners).Having said that the meals were excellent and the presentation was superb. The meal and service in the Ozone restaurant was excellent however. Overall we had a lovely stay and a couple of nice walks into Seaham which is a really pleaseant seaside town.
All the staff in the hotel were really friendly and made you feel very welcome, even the housekeeper who turned down our beds stopped and had a chat.
Seaham Hall is a beautiful hotel and the Serenity Spa is wonderful. If they could just step up the game in Byrons restaurant the stay would have been perfect.

Room Tip: I'm sure all the rooms are wonderful, but ask for a sea view for an added bonus.

My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary here last week and we were not disappointed! Staff were very friendly from the moment we got there and it continued throughout our overnight stay.

Great value and we enjoyed every minute. Beautiful suite, great massage, fantastic spa facilities and an enjoyable meal at the ozone restaurant - I found the dining in your robe (that is considered acceptable) to be a little weird and that can be my only negative. It is of course a choice, but we chose not to dine in a robe and slippers for our anniversary.

Great cocktails at the bar followed by visit to the sports bar were you can play pool, fussball or watch the giant plasma mounted on the wall.

We chose to pay an additional £10 to have breakfast served to our room. This included a full English followed by fruit and pastries with tea and coffee.

All in all a very enjoyable stay. Great value and we will definitely do it again in the future!

Top notch hotel- great rooms, superb facilities, good food and attentive staff.

We had lunch in the Spa restaurant which is Asian themed and the selection had by our party of 4 went down well. The restaurant itself is a bit soulless however you couldn't fault the quality of the food, the dim sums are full of flavour!

We had dinner in the Grill which is a lovely room with a real party feel at night. We had a varied selection including the scallops, fresh fish picky tea and tomatoes/mozzarella for starters and steak, salmon and halibut fir mains. The food was well presented and full of flavour - all in all, a great food experience.

We also had the additional entertainment of the local Del Boy dining with his partner, which he let everyone know about with lots of shouting and look at me behaviour. I'm sure he's the kingpin in his own kitchen. The staff dealt with it brilliantly so apart from the obvious irritation caused, it at least generated a talking point!

We will be going back as the complete package makes a worthwhile and great value experience.
