Booked in for a weekend. Had a fabulous room overlooking the beach. The reception staff were lovely and informative. Had an afternoon tea booked which was dreadful. Service bad, server said they didn't have sparkling wine, but could offer CAVA or Prosecco which happens to be sparkling wine. Needed to ask for it three times though!! Proceeded to get one...

Don't order a Classic Martini because you won't get one. Thought it would be nice on a quiet Monday night to have a cocktail in the bar before dinner in the restaurant. Between requesting a table in the restaurant and getting served in the bar it's clear that customer service is not a priority. It's a nice spot but the...

The use of foul language and verbal abuse towards our team is not acceptable under any circumstances. To reduce a member of our team to tears over the dryness of a martini is beyond reproach. We operate a strict zero-tolerance policy towards this kind of behaviour as was pointed out to you at the time. As such no further action...

My wife and I had attended the Christmas party last night. As far as the party goes it was a great night with great food. But next morning was a different story. The service at breakfast was terrible. Twice we had to go and look for a member of staff to place the order for our breakfast and twice the...

The hotel has been very recently refurbished, everything is glossy, smart, efficient and totally soulless! The food in the restaurant was excellent, enhanced by the lovely views over the sea. Great for a business trip but I wouldn't dream of staying here for a romantic get away, it's too big and too corporate - but that's purely my personal preference....

Myself, wife and 2 friends spent 2 nights at the Seamill Hydro recently and had a great time. Our rooms were spotlessly clean, comfortable and suitable for our needs. The leisure facilities are excellent and we ate 1 night in the Orangery and our meals were really good. The staff throughout the hotel could not have been more helpful and...

We attended the Christmas Fayre today at Seamill having travelled up from Kilmarnock especially for it. Once there we were extremely disappointed to find out that for today this only consisted of companies selling products in the Brisbane Suite with no activities, playroom, elves work room, indoor snow tube or any of the other activities listed. My wife enquired at...

Thank you for taking the time to post your review. We were extremely disappointed to read of your experiences and the perception of false advertising. Our website does clearly state the following: "All other attractions i.e. Santa’s Grotto and the playroom have individually priced attractions. Please view the pages for these attractions for more information including opening hours and dates."...

Just stayed 3 nights and overall a great experience. Upgraded Seaview room and enjoyed dinners 2 nights in the Orangery. Lucky to spend 2 mid mornings in the pool when quiet. However, things soured a bit on checkout. I complained of being violently sick following a room service salad the evening before. Interrogated by Reservations manager (Clare) who maintained that...

Very impressive hotel and the suite we had looked okay, but not value for money. The toiletries were non existent apart from some hand wash, not even a bar of soap. The bed was the best alarm call as we both awoke at 6:00 am with sore backs and after a hot bath, with no soap and a walk we...
