Such a lovely place to stay. The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful and the rooms were very nicely appointed. The food was excellent. The only point would be to suggest fans for the rooms-it was very hot when I was there (an odd occurrence in the north of England I know!) but a fan would have helped because it... More

I stayed here this week whilst working away and will start by saying that this a good choice and I will happily stay here again when in the area. Checking in was quick and painless and I was given directions to my room which was clean and well appointed and perfect for a one night stay. The shower was roomy... More

Beautiful interior both in the rooms and restaurant. Excellent service and food was delicious. It was ideal for our meeting in Seaham, just off the A19. Didn't get a chance to sit outside but it had a lovely outdoor space with tables and covered area, perfect for summer evenings. I would definitely return given the chance.

We had eaten in the restaurant a while ago, so decided to stay for a night whilst touring the area on holiday. The Seaton Inn exceeded our expectations. Wonderful room, very comfortable bed, and magnificent shower. Decor brilliant. Good size TV. We chose to be in a room set back far from the road, so very peaceful, and completely free... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
\Imagine you find your ideal country pub, enjoy a fine meal and a few drinks – why move on? Well, now you don’t have to because the Seaton Lane Inn will provide you with somewhere luxurious to lay your sleepy head – at a price you can afford. The roadside inn has been extended with an 18-bedroom hotel which is attached to the main building and overlooks a paved, outdoor area. It is well sheltered from the prevailing winds and surrounded by colourful plants – including a herb garden. At night, the paved area twinkles with sunken lights and you won’t feel cold – the powerful heat lamps do their job. The hotel’s boutique-style bedrooms have been tastefully furnished by a top quality interior design team, decorated in different styles to a high standard and equipped with plasma TV, WiFi and king-size and super king-size beds. En suite shower rooms are of a high standard and hair dryers and tea and coffee making facilities are provided. There is also luxury, ground floor accommodation for disabled guests. Door entry is by card key and guests can take their choice of visiting other North East attractions – or spend a relaxing evening enjoying the culinary delights and friendly atmosphere of the Seaton Lane Inn’s restaurant, lounge and bar. Comfort, pleasant surroundings and a choice of locally sourced food and drinks to tempt the most discerning of palates – what more could you desire? For a start, you may be looking for an ideal base to savour the best of all the North East of England has to offer. That place is the newly extended and tastefully renovated Seaton Lane Inn boutique hotel. Situated by a country road through a village, it is only a few hundred yards from the A19 – making is less than 30 minutes to Newcastle upon Tyne and equally convenient for Durham City. Sunderland is just minutes away. The Seaton Lane Inn has come a long way from its early incarnation as a blacksmith’s forge; it now incorporates a stylish lounge/dining area, traditional bar and a new two-story hotel attached to the original building. The pub/hotel is run by owners who head a talented team. Their purpose is to make your stay at the Seaton Lane Inn a memorable one – for all the right reasons. These include the friendliness of the staff, the affable type of clientele you meet in a country inn, a tempting and varied menu (try the seafood) and wide range of beers, including excellent cask conditioned ales served from the hand pump, wines and spirits. You can relax in the comfort of the lounge, which has Sky TV, or join the regulars in the adjacent bar. The new hotel has 18 en suite double rooms which are tastefully furnished and have all modern conveniences including TV and radio, wireless internet access, toiletries and tea and coffee making facilities. ... more   less
