Enjoy a High-End Holiday from Luxury Hotels in County Durham
County Durham's amazing countryside, which encompasses such diverse landscapes as the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Durham Dales, is the perfect spot for a luxury hotel. Unsurprisingly, you'll find many top four and four-star hotels dotted around the region. Seaham Hall is five-star accommodation located near to the coast, along Lord Byron's Walk. The hotel goes above and beyond the norm, boasting extensive spa facilities, fine dining restaurants, an indoor swimming pool and all the amenities and conveniences you'd expect from a luxury establishment. Many luxury hotels in County Durham are magnificent historic buildings, such as Redworth Hall Hotel, located in Newton Aycliffe, a stunning Jacobean country house dating back to 1693.

The Radisson BLU Hotel combines all the luxury amenities you'd expect from four-star accommodation - everything from free internet to an indoor swimming pool - with a convenient location in easy reach of Durham's top attractions, such as Crook Hall and Gardens, Durham Castle and Durham Cathedral. Durham luxury hotels will often have considerable business facilities, such as conference rooms and business centres, and are popular venues for meetings and conferences - particularly where there are clients to impress! A number of the luxury hotels in the County Durham region boast excellent business facilities, such as the four-star Best Western Beamish Hall Country House Hotel, which offers generous conference space.
