Seaham Hall Hotel & Serenity Spa

Built in the 17th century, the Hall has a colourful history being the venue for the wedding of the romantic poet Lord Byron to Lady Annabella Milburn. Following a £20m transformation it is now tastefully restored and transformed into a luxury hotel and spa of considerable grandeur. With 19 rooms it opened in 2001, was voted AA hotel of the year in 2004 and the Serenity Spa voted World’s Best Spa for Style by Sunday Times magazine.


Seaham Hall has gained a world wide reputation since it was transformed into a luxury hotel and spa in 2001, offering nineteen suites to tourists and businessmen visiting East Durham. It was awarded five-star status from the AA in 2006 and it subsequently became the only North East eating establishment to achieve a Michelin Star for fine dining, the most coveted accolade in the culinary world, in January, 2007.

Seaham Hall Hotel and Serenity Spa is the only five-star centre in the region and expanded its facilities with the addition of a further twenty nine bedrooms, a meeting room, installation of a waterfall and the provision of additional disabled parking bays. The development compliments the high quality accommodation already provided. The architectural style of the new building is said to be "contemporary and simple and in an appropriate contrast to the main hall". The hotel and spa has in 2012 been acquired by an independent hospitality organisation which has committed considerable funds to ensure Seaham Hall's long-term future and position as the finest 5 Star hotel in the North East of England.


It is located to the north of Seaham and adjoins St. Mary the Virgin Church. For more information visit their website at the following link
