My wife and I were coming down to Bournemouth to visit some old friends which would involve an overnight stay. We looked at various B&B's and hotels for a budget priced overnight stay and the Orchid came up. I looked here on TA and there were one or two adverse comments but the reviews were, in general reasonably good. So... More

We stayed here on Saturday for two nights, as I was visiting my Son who lives in Bournemouth. Yes it is a bit dated, but it is being renovated as this was advised when we booked. Other than an initial wait with the check in, everything was great. Very impressed with the staff they were very attentive at all times.... More

Stayed overnight at this hotel. Had no fault at all. Hotel is located close to all amenities. Staff very friendly. Rooms were clean. Small problem as shower door was sealed, found it difficult to adjust water temperature. Breakfast variety was good. We had full English which was excellent. Look forward to staying here again!

I like this hotel and often use it when visiting my son in Bournemouth. It is quiet, clean and perfectly sited for parents visiting their kids at University. It is also close to sand and sea. Or a short stroll to O'Neills for a pint of stout! Parking is free and easy. The rooms I have been allocated have been... More

Dear arm1964, It's great to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. Room 206 (similar to our room 306) has a bit of a different layout than most of our rooms and is slightly larger than the average room. We will look into your concerns regarding the bath panel and rail, and we are looking forward to welcoming you back... More

Have recently returned from a staying at the Orchid Hotel. We mainly chose the hotel for the price that we was offered for a two night stay with bed and breakfast. I was a little concerned about going due to the reviews. As we arrived at the hotel there was no parking due to a function going on but later... More

The hotel was gorgeous from the outside and the lobby and eating area was very nice too. Room was slightly outdated but I know that the hotel is currently going through renovation. The WiFi worked perfectly from the bedroom and so did the shower. Breakfast was great - choice of hot breakfast and/or a buffet of cereals, yoghurt, croissants etc.... More

Very dated but clean. We booked two rooms both of which had such dim lighting which I assume was to disguise the grotty furnishings. On first look the bed was large, we then realised it was two singles pushed together. Mattresses are so old they have permanent dents in them. Covers clean but tatty. No spare pillows or blankets. Pillows... More
