I booked this hotel through booking.com and we got a reasonable price of £209.95 for three nights inclusive of Bed and Breakfast. There are usually 3 criteria that I look for in a hotel, a) a reasonable rate, b) free car parking and c) free WIFI accessible in the room. a) And b) were fine but the WIFI could not... More

I booked a night in this hotel under the impression that I was going to be staying in a boutique hotel with a full English breakfast as described on the website. On arrival we were told that we would be staying at the annexe across the road. That would not have been a problem - until I discovered that there... More

we stayed for 4 nights and after reviews on this site were a little worried as what to expect, but as an excellent English breakfast and comfortable sleep was promised we were optimistic. We were send to annex across the road to room 210 after being informed we were only having a continental breakfast. We were slightly more worried now.... More

On arrival I explained that I knew we were a bit early and was told cannot get your room till 2.30pm, I said again I knew that but just wanted to let them know we had arrived... More

We booked 2 nights in the Orchid Hotel and were sent to their annex across the road. The twin bedded room was clean, bright with everything we needed. The overall feel was basic but reflected the price we paid. The staff were cheerful and helpful. We pointed out a few minor improvements which needed to be done. The manager wrote... More

This is the second time my wife & myself have stayed at the Orchid. A number of improvements have been carried out since our first visit. We had a twin bedded room with all of the facilities we required. Plenty of space in the room, plenty of wardrobe space. The bathroom was massive with a bath & over bath shower.... More

Stayed here with the other half for a short break at the end of July. The hotel itself was only a short walk from the pier and the beach...probably about a 10-15 minute walk...although be careful of the busy roads in Bournemouth! Room was comfortable and although there was a function on when we stayed we did not hear any... More
