I came across this hotel just by chance on a last minute visit to Durham, and we were so glad I did! Our 1st floor room was lovely, the bed and pillows were very comfortable, shower room was small but had everything we needed. We stayed on a dinner b&b package and had a delicious 3 course meal. Breakfast was... More

I've stayed at the Seaton lane Inn several times since my previous review and I am pleased to say that it continues to be excellent in every respect. The staff are attentive, the food is very good, and it's a nice touch when the staff remember that a guest is gluten free and prepare their meal accordingly. Nice, clean rooms.... More

Stayed in the Seaton Lane Inn for 2 weeks in a row (3 days in each week) and this is my verdict: - staff is very nice and attentive, but probably too many for such a small place - room is very spacious and warm - bathroom is small but enough - restaurant food tasted good, but the truth is... More

I never expected something this good, when I took off and headed towards Newcastle. The hotel has the old charm, but it has been totally refurbished with Modern taste. Rooms were very nice and well equipped. Bathrooms and showers were quite small, but manageable. The restaurant was the key point of this location, the breakfast was absolutely great and the... More

Very conveniently situated just off the A19 with ample car parking.Rooms are very modern, warm and comfortable. We enjoyed an excellent early evening meal from a comprehensive menu and this was equalled by breakfast next morning.... More

We needed a comfortable overnight stay near to Sunderland. The Seaton lane is 10 miles away but close to the A19 to make the drive into the City simple. The rooms are small but well appointed and comfortable. We had a snack meal in the evening which was tasty and served speedily (we were in a hurrry). After our evening... More

I stayed here for three nights recently whilst visiting family in the local area. I had prior knowledge of the pub and restaurant from previous visits which had been good experiences. The hotel is a great place to stay. The rooms are of a high standard of furnishings and cleanliness. The bar/restaurant is welcoming, reasonably priced and the breakfast is... More

Just visited the Seaton Lane Inn as two couples the weekend just gone as somewhere to meet, have a few drinks, a meal and a bed for the night. It completely exceeded our expectations. When we arrived it looked to be fairly busy in the front bar but there was still a lovely area with tables by the reception bar... More
