Case study: Small Hotel of the Year - Seaham Hall

14th July 2016

Categories: NETA - blog

Seaham Hall is and independent 5-star boutique hotel and spa set in 37 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens, on a striking cliff top location on the Durham Heritage Coast. Dating back to 1791, the hotel has a rich history from being the wedding location of the great romantic poet Lord Byron, residence of the society intellectual Ada Lovelace and later, the centre of a whiskey smuggling enterprise during US prohibition.

The hotel was delighted to win joint gold (alongside The Morritt Country House Hotel & Spa) for ‘Small Hotel of the Year’ in the 2015 awards.

Seaham Hall entered the awards to improve their brand awareness, gain PR exposure, brand endorsement and above all else to celebrate the hard work and boost morale among their fantastic team. They told us “winning Small Hotel of the Year makes us feel very proud with a sense of satisfaction knowing that all the hard work and commitment that the team has put in over the last few years is paying dividends.

“The impact of winning this award underpins our values and therefore endorses our brand and our vision.”

The team at Seaham Hall believe other business should apply for the awards to maximise on the opportunities and benefits they have experiences by being a part of the awards. The team is looking forward to entering again this year.
