Had our wedding here, rubbish during the day, evening do was OK. Compliments to the bar staff on the night. Several problems with daytime event, ranging from no champagne, waiting staff swearing & fighting in front of guests to the manager being drunk. Management extremely rude the following day, basically acting like nothing had went on, only managed to speak... More

I have been to Platform 5 (the bar onsite) a couple of times for food and drinks and it was lovely, so when a friend invited me to her wedding here in May 2014 I thought great, it's going to be lovely. DO NOT HOLD A FUNCTION HERE, ESPECIALLY A WEDDING! It was the worst organization ever. The guests had... More

I had my wedding in the function room here on May 25th. We chose the venue because yes, it did look beautiful and the package seemed great value for money. Unfortunately looks can be deceiving. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you would like any more information. *We extended the complimentary room we received for the wedding night to... More

Had a lovely afternoon tea at the Carriages tea room section of the Pullman. Friendly staff, good value for money, a lovely setting with pretty views. Will definitely be going back soon and would recommend a visit.

We loved the idea of having Sunday lunch in the newly restored train carriages so we visited today, Sunday 5th July. The music was 1920 style which suited the refurbished restaurant. The furnishings were quaint and clean. The staff were very friendly but the food was dire. The beef was so bad, I had to send it back. I asked... More

This is a lovely tea room in a wonderfully restored Pullman carridge that dates feom the 1920's. Fantastic waitress and coffee that is second to none in a lovely setting right the Seaburn sea front. Would highly recommend.

My cousins are visiting from Australia and us ladies decided to treat ourselves to afternoon tea at the newly refurbished Carriages. The train coach has been beautifully restored, complete with gorgeous wood panelling, delicate curtains and some quirky details that hark back to bygone days of luxurious train journeys. The tea was served promptly on china by very friendly staff.... More

The main business appears to be private functions. The hotel accommodation is very much an afterthought, and it shows: room not serviced; very uncomfortable bed - you can feel the mattress springs; bathroom fittings broken; and no shampoo or shower gel in the dispenser. The rooms face a car park and the main function room and bar. Hence don't expect... More
