Reserved a standard double. Asked for an upgrade at check-in. They gave us an Executive Suite for 40 pounds more per night. With an Executive Suite you get free breakfast buffet (excellent) for two, free newspaper, twice the room size with sofa, wine each evening, water, free parking, etc. Wow! What a deal. On river close by Durham University, Rail Station, Restaurants, Bars. The Best.
Stayed in hotel while visiting with granddaughter in Middlesbrough. Somewhat lengthy drive each day but acceptable. Everything about hotel very nice. Food, cleanliness, front desk staff, especially breakfast service staff. Only issue was hangers in wardrobe (in room 124). Majority of them were bent and would not come off holder. Nearly impossible to hang trousers or shirt on hanger unless you can get it out.
Was a bit worried about returning to this hotel after a mediocre stay last year. I am pleased to say that on this occasion it was much improved and a very enjoyable experience. There was an obvious improvement in both the food, service and accommodation. I will certainly return when next in the area.

We stayed one night recently having dropped an offspring off at Durham. As we came from a long way, we have stayed at other hotels in or near Durham before with very average service. Having driven past Seaham Hall we thought we would give it a splash. It certainly lived up to our expectation (and the price)! The staff were friendly and more than helpful. The hotel room was sumptuous and clean. The spa has hot tubs and Jacuzzi galore both indoor and outdoor. The food at the Byron Grill was very good - the most tender steak we have had for a long time. Although it was not cheap, for the same quality of food and services you would pay a lot more in London or in the Southeast. The overall impression is that the staff are there to please and we would definitely look forward to returning.
Dating back to 1791 the iconic Seaham Hall home to the award-winning Serenity Spa is just 20 minutes drive from the …More
