This 17th century building has been transformed from a historic icon into a contemporary hotel, featuring 20 of the most luxurious suites, delicious dining and a simply perfect award winning spa, thanks to a £2 million upgrade under new ownership.

Seaham Hall began life as a medieval manor house, and the original structure can still be seen today.  In 1791, it was rebuilt and went on to be the home of the poet Lord Byron, who was married here.  It then enjoyed a rich and history during the present century when it became a military hospital during World War I, played a key role in US Prohibition, a TB Sanatorium and latterly a medical centre.

This beautiful building now perfectly combines Georgian charm with modern flair and vast quantities of chic style. Seaham Hall’s motto ‘It’s all in the detail’ is embodied in every inch of the hotel, from the contemporary design to the supreme comfort of all the facilities.

Dining at Seaham Hall is a notable experience with the rugged views of the North Sea teamed with the relaxed, friendly and somewhat quirky atmosphere. Chef Damian Broom of the The Dining Room restaurant sources the finest ingredients right from his own doorstep to present a varied and tasty seasonal menu drawn from the beloved local region. Alternatively, ‘Ozone Restaurant’ is a haven for lovers of traditional Eastern cuisine, offering a vibrant dining experience and serving authentic Pan-Asian cuisine in a relaxed and informal setting.

Serenity Spa at Seaham Hall is alluring and totally irresistible.  There are quirky snail showers, a 20 metre pool with massage stations, sanarium, an ice fountain, a hammam and hydrotherapy pool – just to name a few.  For ultimate relaxation, spend time in the new Zen Garden with a hydrotherapy infinity pool with cocoon pods. All of this is set in contemporary elegance and chic style, and is the perfect tranquil retreat.   There is a fitness studio, and an aerobics studio, as well as treatment rooms offering a lovely selection of body and beauty treatments.  The roof garden is the ideal place to relax after so much pampering.

Seaham Hall is a modern, spacious and truly relaxing place to stay. There’s only a few places in the whole hotel where a dressing gown isn’t allowed – it’s a true spa break. The atmosphere is relaxing and welcoming with fantastic food and service too
