Isn’t it nice to stay at a hotel that has a good restaurant on site?
The Orchard is a full service restaurant and lounge at the DoubleTree Claremont Hotel. They are open daily from 6am until 10:30pm. In addition to the regular breakfast menu, they offer an American Breakfast Buffet. I’m pretty sure everyone who was there when I was also chose the buffet.
The buffet has a whole lot of tasty options. There are breads, pastries, cereal, fruit, yogurt, hot dishes and an omelette station and waffle station. Juice, coffee, tea, milk and milk-alternatives are included. They have a good variety of sweeteners and flavors for the drinks. Specialty coffees are available for an extra fee.
The hotel attracts a combination of families and business travelers. The food selection works well for children and adults. There were plenty of vegetarian options for me and lots of meat for others.
After checking out the spread, I decided on a made to order omelette with spinach, mushrooms and onion. I then filled my plate with fresh pineapple, blueberries and blackberries.
Staff did a good job of clearing plates away and refilling beverages. It was a pleasant and convenient place to eat.
The Orchard has indoor tables and outdoor patio tables. There are decorative fire pits and heaters on the patio that are turned on in the evening. This is a beautiful place to relax with food and a drink at night or during the day.
