My husband and I booked this as a late booking and were restricted with availability and having read the mixed reviews arrived with low expectations. We were pleasantly surprised the hotel is in a great quiet location with easy access to the East Cliff. The upgraded room which we had paid for was on the first floor above what I... More

Great location and friendly staff, I will defiantly go back and recommend this to my friends. The room was immaculate and nicely finished, we even had a coffee machine in the room. Bathroom was new and this is rare at this price!

Very helpful and attentive staff, good breakfast but rooms are dark and quite dingy. The hotel is in a convenient location, close to lots of restaurants and shops but I wouldn't stay here again. The room I had was 202 right by the stairs where everyone walks up. It was on the bottom floor so people having breakfast could look... More

The hotel is undergoing renovation but didnt spoil our stay. The staff are lovely, really friendly. Seating areas and bar really good, if not a tad expensive for drinks. Really good garden area to relax in and have a drink. Room was really small. We had a twin room. Not much storage space, bathroom the same, could have done with... More

Requiring an overnight stop in Bournemouth we chose The Orchid as we had stayed there about 6 years ago. On arrival it was clearly evident that they where in the middle of a refurb, with scaffolding at the front of the building and loaded skips and work vans around the back we were a bit dubious as to what we...

We attended a Wedding at The Orchid and although we are local there had been a cancellation so decided to stay over as well. Cannot fault anything about this hotel- okay they are in the middle of refurbishment but everyone was so helpful and friendly and from what has been done so far this hotel is going to be stunning!...
