Spent the evening here with friends having a few drinks. The atmosphere is very good and not too loud. Although the TV was on there was not any sound so conversation was not disturbed. The waiters were very good at refilling our glasses which of course is to the hotels advantage.

Horrendously poor bar and waiter/waitress service within the Aura Bar/Restaurant, even when it was not busy ! ** The majority of the younger staff members were clearly inexperienced and were completely lacking in even the very basic customer service & communication skills !!! Most were surly, anything & everything it seemed were just too much hassle for them; some were... More

Visited here with husband and daughter whilst on little spa overnight. Choose to eat here instead of orangery as it was more relaxed for dining with children. I felt the menu was a tad overpriced for what it was but hey ho we went ahead and ordered! Starters were nice Cullen Skink and goats cheese. Our daughters main came with... More

During my stay at the Seamill Hydro I had drinks within the Aura lounge. The price for the cocktails were a bit pricey however they were nice and quite big so didn't mind. The orangery sunset was the best drink there. It would have been nice if they had snacks to purchase with your drinks, i.e. Nachos The lounge was... More

Had a lovely lunch here on a Saturday afternoon. Staff were very helpful and very friendly and coped well with my allergies. I nice eclectic menu with something for everyone. The star off the show though was the breakfast we had on the Sunday morning. There was a great choice of cold buffet breakfast and a very comprehensive hot menu.... More

I like the hotel and stay here regularly for work. The Aura serves the bar type meals. There is the main hotel restaurant instead. I've often found the food a bit uninteresting. Quite a contrast to the main restaurant. Breakfast the salmon is superb. The problem is when you sit down they take your order for the cooked breakfast but... More
