About The Orangery @ Seamill Hydro
The Orangery Restaurant takes full advantage of its location on the Ayrshire coast. Looking over the grounds of Seamill Hydro and on to over 100 square miles of land and sea. The Orangery features an expanse of glass offering unrivalled views across the hotel’s landscaped gardens and out over the Firth of Clyde and the islands of Arran, and, in the distance Ailsa Craig. With so many fantastic restaurants in Ayrshire we have gone to great lengths to bring together the best in food, service and location to the make the Orangery the first choice for eating out in Ayrshire.
Food could have been hotter, wrong specials menu provided - this has happened before. I have had better meals at the Hydro.
The food was first class and the staff were very pleasant and helpful. A very enjoyable experience.
Excellent as always!
Great value for money, the food and drink was amazing and good service. We were sat next to a gas fire making the place warm and comfortable.
We had a generally pleasant meal in the usual excellent surroundings However, service was a bit slow and the cakes (carrot and lemon) served as part of the coffee and cake deal were dry and unappetising. (The strawberry tart was very good)
I was disappointed in the meal after inviting 6 friends for a special luncheon. The fire in the back room, although welcoming to look at was far too hot. All members of our party had to partially disrobe. The lights were turned down to a very low setting half way through our meal and with no lighting on the table, we were left in almost total darkness. We had to ask the manager to turn the lights back up. Food wise, the starters were quite good. The turkey dinner smacked of function style food and we all felt as if it had been pre prepared. The roast potatoes were dreadful, the sprouts were so hard that they were almost impossible to cut, and we were served our turkey and stuffing with no stuffing. The missing stuffing was delivered about 5 minuntes later on a single plate where we all helped ourselves from - very classy. Desssert was miniscule (jam roly poly) and we found the service spotty, having to ask whoever was passing for assistance several times. I'm afraid that it was a poor experience and I don't plan to return. Oh, and I was charged for an item we didn't have (garlic bread) - but the cashier was kind enough to remove it from the bill.
From time of reservation to dining experience we had a very enjoyable experience - staff delightful courteous and polite. Food of an excellent quality and well presented.
Every member of staff that we came across from reception to waiting and bar staff were excellent and made our stay very enjoyable. We will definitely be back, hopefully soon.
Once again I was not disappointed. Food was to a very high standard and thoroughly enjoyed. Great choice of menu for lunchtime. Looking forward to my next visit. Thank you.
Stayed here for just the 1 night and ate at the orangery restaurant, the food was cooked to perfect and the drinks available were fantastic plus the servers went the extra mile all night to make sure we had a great night.
We had booked the Orangery for my parents’ wedding anniversary and it was exactly what we’d hoped for. The food and service were amazing.
Ate 2 nights in a row and cannot complain about anything food was amazing, staff so friendly and professional will definitely be back thank you
Had to ask twice about our bottle of wine, tables beside us who ordered after us got served before us. Our wine arrived after our starters, staff apologised but not good service. Ordered espresso and liquors, espresso was cold and liquors nice but nicer glass would be appreciated.
Loved our overnight stay at Seamill. Food service and hospitality was amazing . Cant wait to return Angela
Great food, setting and service!
Great place for lunch and view over to Arran
Awesome service! I have dietary requirements and the chef went out of his way to accommodate them and provide one of the best meals I've had in a long time! Thank you.
Sometimes the service is a little slow and staff could be more attentive with checking if you need anything else at the end of the meal. But otherwise overall great.
Food is lovely! Friendly staff and great venue.
Always enjoyable experience
Beautiful meal no complaints however think the drinks are slightly over priced.
Dinner was included in our deal so was good value although £4,95 supplement for tiny scallops was bit much.Seafood Thermidor was yummy. Staff were helpful and polite on a very busy night.
Great food good value for money if included in room price and if not about the same money as any decent restaurant. Steak was impeccable Cooked to perfection.
We ate at the Orangery for lunch on Wed 24th Oct and dinner that night both food service etc wS fabulous. We had also booked for dinner on the Fri 26th we were sat at a table beside the till and when the wine arrived we had no wine glasses on the table. The food was outstanding but the table was like an add on as we felt their was no privacy and people coming in and out were almost sitting on my husbands knee. We also had to listen to staff chatting while they stood at the till. Could totally understand this table if we had not booked, my husband did mention to the front of house on way out but they did not appear that interested and just said if you are back mention you dont want that table. We were staying for 3 nights for our anniversary and were dissapointed that the last night was not the same high standard we had previously as a result we did not bother with sweets or coffees. My husband has messaged the hotel and awaits a reply x
The absolute highlight of the dining experience was the exceptional Chef's special - the Halibut!
