Luxury Durham boutique Seaham Hall is to unveil its new suite in another nod to its history and links to Lord Bryon, with the launch of the new Ada Lovelace suite this week.
The five-star hotel, which has benefited from a £3m refurbishment since its acquisition from Von Essen in 2014, will unveil its new-look suite on October 11, on which is fittingly the official Ada Lovelace Day 2016.
The new suite will add to the hotel’s 22 luxury bedrooms, and is a reminder of the hotel’s extensive heritage which began when Lord and Lady Bryon married at the property in 1815. Their daughter, Ada Lovelace, born almost exactly 200 years ago, has been the inspiration for the newest suite.
The grand split-level suite is home to an elevated sleeping mezzanine, which overlooks a lounge with a bathing deck with two slipper baths in front of the Georgian windows.
To celebrate Ada’s links with Seaham Hall, the new suite’s artwork references her achievements and showcases her famous portrait. The decor is soft and feminine and elegant, with fabrics in a range of lilac and blue hues, plus a range of handmade lace adorns the room.
Seaham Hall is also home to two restaurants, under the direction of the hotel’s new head chef Ross Stovold, and a 44,000 sq ft spa.
