Tom's Companies Tom's Companies – Hotels and Restaurants - As of July 1st 2005, all of the hotels and restaurants owned by the North East’s, Tom’s Companies became smoke-free. Seaham Hall and the White Room restaurant ... the award winning Serenity Spa which features the Ozone restaurant.....plus the Fisherman’s Lodge and Treacle Moon implemented no-smoking policies. “We’ve been watching with some interest as the smoking bans have come into effect in Ireland and Scotland and the change has been a positive one without any of the side effects that many heralded before it was introduced,” said Debrah Dhugga, group commercial director, Tom’s Companies. “Our hotels in particular are surrounded by the great outdoors and our Serenity Spa which has of course always been smoke-free, is all about the promotion of holistic health and well-being and these concepts are central to what we offer, making this a natural step for us. We like to lead the field when it comes to bettering our offering for guests and I’m sure it won’t be long before other establishments follow,” she continued.
