It seems to be pot luck whether you are allocated a room in the Orchid Hotel or the Orchid Garden and there is a huge difference between the two. We originally went to the reception in the Orchid Hotel and were delighted by the spa hotel look of the place. However, we were told that our room was on the... More

The hotel we normally like to stay at when visiting Bournemouth was unfortuntely full. I thought I had done my homework when deciding to book this hotel, but obviously not. I was under the impression this was a "Boutique Hotel" and the pictures of the rooms, bar and restaurant etc looked fine. We decided to book a superior room just... More

Yes some of the hotel is a bit dated, but the room we had, 306, was lovely, out of the way as right at the top, nice and clean with a separate dressing area and clean bathroom. There is a lot of...

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

It has been said that the camera never lies. Well orchid have proved that wrong if their pictures on the website are to be believed. On arrival, we were slightly worried by rooms full of builders and decorators visible from reception. however, we were told on checking in that we would not be staying at the orchid but at the...

I visited this hotel around 6 years ago and was impressed with the hotel, staff and it's family room. However returning 6 years later with my new partner on our very first weekend away was a different story Suppose to be 3* but I wouldn't give it a 2* rating. Car park was packed on arrival so we just managed... More
