Reviewed 17 June 2014 via mobile

My husband and I decided to book here as a very last minute relaxation break and we are so glad we did. The place is divine. On arrival the check in was fast and the staff lovely. We were shown to our room, a junior suite, and it was terrific. We had room 11 and the bathroom was out if this world with a huge bath, rain shower and his and her basins. The elimis toiletries were a lovely. We spent the afternoon in the spa which again was perfect. There is a vast array of baths and saunas and the treatments were lovely. I had a gel manicure and my hubby had a body massage. It was lovely to relax in the zen lounge prior and after our treatments. We ate in the ozone restaurant which was a relaxed and informal affair. The food was very good and nicely presented. We enjoyed a drink in the sports lounge which is very opulent and the mojito was beautiful. The bed was out of this world and my own niggle was the air con was pretty ineffective. Breakfast was another pleasure and service was excellent. We can't wait to return. Thank you

Visited here for a relaxing hen-do daytime spa experience. £125 for the whole day with a 2 course lunch and 2 treatments, massage and facial.

Very pleasant environment and helpful staff. Beautiful (and warm) pool, two hot tubs (outside) and a few sauna/steam rooms to enjoy.

However we were slightly disappointed in the rough towelling robes, which if you didn't dry off with a towel became heavy and soggy for the rest of the day; foot spa area was basically a couple of sinks; no aromatherapy in the steam rooms; no drinks allowed in the spa area; no warm/quiet chill out room (there was one to sit in before a treatment but women nattered on so it wasn't peaceful).

Treatments and food we're lovely and made up for the above but I have had better massages elsewhere. Would I revisit? Yeah probably.

My wife booked a full spa 'serenity' day for my birthday last week, and I have to say it was one of the most relaxing days we have had in some time - exactly what we paid for.

We were greeted at spa reception and offered a drink and completed details about ourselves. The reception had an immediate feeling of relaxation, unlike some other spa's we have visited. There were several other people checking in for treatments and some regular gym goers, all of which were dealt with pretty quickly. If I'm being a little picky (not a snob at all) but the cream seats in reception look like they need to be replaced as looking a little worn for a 5 star spa. First impression and all.....

The reception staff were excellent and showed us around in detail, ensuring we knew where everything was - great service.

The changing rooms were excellent, modern with plenty of robes, towels and on our visit were very quiet.

Key for us was the spa was not too busy and it wasn't. Facilities were excellent, a mix of water and sauna's to use, with a great out door hot tub which was in the sun when we visited. The set up is one of the best spa's we have used for sure.

A nice touch of bringing some small snacks around to guests was appreciated. Magazines on offer were new and welcomed.

We had lunch included in the Thai restaurant which was amazing. We would visit this place for the food alone. Wine was good, a little expensive but what you would expect for a 5 star venue.

Treatment - we had a couples treatment included for 50 mins and it was again one of the best treatments we have both had, very professional and good quality. We both felt extremely relaxed and plan to return.

We would highly recommend this place for a relaxing couples day out or special occasion. We will return for sure if more offers are in place like we had.

Book and enjoy.

Where to start? Room excellent. Spa excellent. Staff excellent. BUT We had booked for 2 night stay. First night we sat in the restaurant we had booked and waited and waited until we had to ask for a menu. When it came it was a lunch/snack menu. We were then told they didn't do dinner in that restaurant on a Tuesday night - despite taking our booking. We ended up in the other restaurant which was very nice but not what we had anticipated for our wedding anniversary - us all dressed up sitting amongst others in their dressing gowns from the Spa. We did let the hotel know we were not happy and got a free glass of prosecco with dinner the second night with a whisky after dessert. Not really my idea of saying sorry. At breakfast on second morning my husband had asked for smoked haddock with a poached egg. Presume chef was not pleased as fish was stinking, not fresh and egg hard. We felt we had complained enough and just left very disappointed and husband not feeling very well!!

I had such mixed feelings about this stay that's why its taken so long to review! Huge potential beautiful setting but I don't think the hotel has decided on its direction - either focus on Spa visits or romantic trips. It's all a bit mixed. Don't say just ask for anything not on the breakfast menu if you don't mean it! Wouldn't go back unless specifically for a spa break.

Room Tip: All rooms beautiful - particularly room 6

We stay here ever summer whilst visiting family and we have never been disappointed. I've traveled the world and coming home to a 5 star in the North East makes our trip. I can't recommend Seaham Hall enough.

We have just celebrated our wedding anniversary with a short break at Seaham Hall which was picturesque, deluxe and delightful. We were even given chocolates as a celebratory gift!. The room was spacious with a large screen TV and a comfy sofa and table. the large bathroom had everything you need including Elemis products and a cute duck for the bath. The towel rail was on constantly which was great for quickly drying your swimwear after your spa trips. The Spa was the best we have used and was never over crowded, we even used the hot tub in the rain and relaxed in the Zen room. The Ozone restaurant was fabulous, excellent food with friendly attentive staff and good value for money too. We didn't try the breakfasts as they were a bit on the expensive side for a light meal. We are planning next years trip now and we highly recommend a visit

Room Tip: The Junior suite on the first floor had a grand view of the garden.
