Stayed for one night Feb 2015. The room itself was nice and clean and had everything you'd need for a short stay. Plenty of soaps, tea/coffee, there was a small TV in the room and the beds were comfy. Without a doubt the nicest of the cheaper Bournemouth hotels we've stayed in and excellent value for money. My partner and... More

Was concerned that for the price this would not be a good experience. What a surprise though. The hotel was clean and well presented although the rooms could do with an update. The staff on reception were very helpful in checking in and giving information. If you want better service it would be difficult to find in Bournemouth but for... More

The hotel was lovely and warm and nicely decorated.A little bit tired would best describe some of the hotel but I'm sure this was work in progress.The outside of the hotel was scruffy but again this was due to building...

At a special deal price of less than Travelodge it is difficult to complain but there is no getting away from the fact that the rooms are now very very tired and not everything works or is provided (eg no bedside tables in some rooms). However some public area refurbishments are complete with a new pleasant bar area but the... More

I recently stayed at the Orchid Hotel, Bournemouth in February. Outstanding value, £139 for 5 nights, single traveller in a double ensuite including breakfast booked through LateRooms. Friendly & helpful staff. Comfortable clean room. Great service & food excellent. If you are looking for a good deal in Bournemouth, Orchid Hotel is a great choice. Highly recommended. I would certainly... More

No complaints for a hotel that charges £40 per room including breakfast. Staff were pleasant and helpful, it was clean (but a little shabby and rooms/carpets need updating), breakfast was good and it's in a good location.

positives were the very large & varied breakfast choice, and also the staff who were friendly & helpful, good water pressure & hot water. We booked an "Executive" room but were rather disappointed by the lack of lighting ( even though all lights were on it was very dark & difficult to see in one area of the room )... More

This is certainly a hotel that you get what you pay for, to start the bed is just two single beds pushed together, on our first breakfast I had a vegetarian fry up and my partner had a normal one I asked for a runny egg and got a egg that could smash something and my partners was undercooked, I...

We booked our wedding reception at the hotel in June 2014 and whilst the evening was lovely for me and my husband it was not for many other guests, the venue knew we had 150 guests but failed to notify us building works would be happening until we arrived and notcied it looks incomplete and shabby - they did try...
