Up on Seaham beach for the weekend so really only looking for an overnight base as up early on the 2 mornings were were around. Family room was clean and spacious enough, beds comfortable. The macerator loo was quite noisy, and you'll hear the ones in adjacent rooms too if guests are staying. Our room's radiator was permanently on despite us turning it to off, which made the room very warm in May so we had to open the window all night - not too eco-friendly I'm afraid. Helped dry out a few beach clothes though, on the upside! No food is served here so if you need breakfast for the kids then bring your own, or head to the local co-op. A good Marstons restaurant is down the road at Dalton Park. We arrived on Friday evening and there was a live band in full swing. Fair enough, it's a pub after all but the family room is directly above the bar and music area so if you've got young kids who you want to settle early beware. The music ended at 10:30 which was fine, but of course the bar noise continues until throwing out time and then - as the window was open to counteract the permanently on radiator - you get all the noise of people leaving, shouting goodbyes and/or arguing until well after midnight. All that said, it wasn't a bad experience at all and for a budget hotel it holds its own well. Staff were very helpful, as were the customers actually when we failed to find reception on arrival! We'd stay again, although would probably look for alternatives first.

A great little hotel for the price. Clean, modern, bright, warm and welcoming. A bit of music leakage from the pub downstairs until 11pm but otherwise good.

Decent location, nice welcome, but several issues
We were welcomed with a nice hello and given keys to our rooms. We had two twin rooms, which differered considerably. One room was much larger than the other, but had what must be the smallest bathroom ever. The other was a smaller (but not bad size) room, with a much better bathroom. Both were clean, on first glance, but then closer inspection revealed some issues - they were definitely not spotless. There were a few cobwebs in one room. There were hairs in one of the showers. And when I lifted the toilet seat in my room, it was clear this hadn't been cleaned. There are signs all over the place - and we were told on check-in - not to put anything in the toilets other than toilet paper, but what we didn't expect was just how bad the flushes were. Sometimes a flush just produced a small trickle of water, and you'd be left flushing many times over several minutes. The other thing to note is that as the rooms are above a bar do not expect it to be quiet in the evening. That's not necessarily a negative (as it's somewhat expected) but you should be aware before booking. On our two nights here it was very, very loud until about 23:45 (including a karaoke night/party, where I could hear every work from my room). After that it was pretty quiet. It's not all bad. The location was decent (if you have a car) to go to Seaham beach, and even into Durham, and the price was very competitive. Just take note of some of the issues above before deciding whether to book.

Family trip to Durham Lumiere
Fabulous rooms above a pub at a great price...easy check in with pleasant lady in pub...took us upstairs and explained everything well. It is so rare for a family room to work so well- double and two single beds were all super comfortable and made the room a bargain! Just down the road from lovely Seaham and its trendy cafes for breakfast! Definitely will be back.
