Arrival and check in was swift and courteous with excellent English spoken. Our room was on the first floor so we asked if there was a lift and they explained there was only a disabled persons service lift which we were allowed to use with a member of staff to the first floor with all our luggage. The other person,... More

The location of the hotel is very good for walking into town (5-10mins), has parking, a bar, free WiFi, clean and comfortable rooms and helpful, friendly... More

The Orchid is a nice hotel for the price you pay. Rooms are clean and comfortable, breakfast is lovely with plenty of choice and staff are friendly. Had no problems with parking. We would certainly stay again.

The Orchid is a reasonably priced hotel located close to the town centre. We were staying in the Orchid Gardens which is about 50 yards from the main hotel. The decor is nothing special (everything is painted white) but the room was clean and comfortable, the staff very friendly and there was ample free car parking (a real bonus in... More
