This seaside spa hotel exudes a colorful sense of history and character.
Celebrated for its exemplary service, accommodations and amenities, Seaham Hall cuts a dashing figure in County Durham overlooking the region’s picturesque coastline. In a pleasant juxtaposition of past meets present, the contemporary hotel facilities are sited within a lovely, historic Georgian country home that was originally constructed in the late 1700s. Through the years, the manor has hosted a number of notable guests including Lord Byron, the Duke of Wellington and Benjamin Disraeli.
After years of private ownership and extensive renovation, the property began welcoming visitors once again in 2001. These days, boutique guest rooms and suites are outfitted with splashy colors, plush fabric headboards, flat screen TVs, Nespresso coffee machines and unique details such as freestanding bathtubs with views. Guests can refuel with modern English fare at Byron’s Restaurant or Pan-Asian cuisine at Ozone. As for "don't miss" experiences, they range from bespoke Afternoon Tea services to pampering treatments at the on-site Serenity Spa. The hotel makes a gorgeous backdrop for weddings, and business gatherings take an elegant turn in the private meeting rooms.
