A LUXURY hotel has a new look after a £100,000 refurbishment.

The Ballroom at five-star Seaham Hall Hotel has undergone an extensive redesign as it aims to strengthen its position as one of the country’s top function venues.

The room, which accommodates up to 100 people for weddings, corporate and social events, now features custom-made carpets and top sound and vision technology.

The refurbishment of the ground-floor room, which overlooks the hall’s grounds, follows the unveiling of the hotel’s Taittinger Sports Lounge and its Byron’s Bar & Grill earlier this year.

The Byron’s Bar & Grill recently earned a second AA rosette under the leadership of executive chef Simon Bolsover, and the sports lounge is open to guests and non-residents.

Work is already under way on the next phase of Seaham Hall’s refurbishment with the first of the hotel’s 20 suites having undergone a complete re-design. Ross Grieve, Seaham Hall Hotel’s general manager, said: “After 30 months and considerable investment, Seaham Hall is once again a five-star hotel.

“Not only does it boast a two AA rosetted restaurant and the multi-award winning Serenity Spa but, most importantly, a dedicated team is in place, committed to excellent customer service.

“I have assembled a superb management team and we are on track to make Seaham Hall the region’s top hotel.” Seasons Holidays, who took over the venue last year after previous owner von Essen went into administration, said they were investing more than £2million to re-establish its position as one of the region’s best hotels.
