positives were the very large & varied breakfast choice, and also the staff who were friendly & helpful, good water pressure & hot water. We booked an "Executive" room but were rather disappointed by the lack of lighting ( even though all lights were on it was very dark & difficult to see in one area of the room )... More

This is certainly a hotel that you get what you pay for, to start the bed is just two single beds pushed together, on our first breakfast I had a vegetarian fry up and my partner had a normal one I asked for a runny egg and got a egg that could smash something and my partners was undercooked, I...

Checked in on Christmas Day early afternoon and fortunately for us the room was ready which was great. This made it easy for us as we were not staying at the hotel during the day and evening. Checked back in quite late without any problems. Desk was manned 24 hours which was great. Bed comfortable and room pleasant enough, the... More

Booked a double room, the room itself was not big enough to swing a cat. The bed was also outdated and very hard, definitely in need of replacement. But we made do for the long weekend we stayed here. We were out and about for the majority of the time, seeing sights and such like. Everything was great in Bournemouth.... More

The Orchid has been renovated as a boutique hotel and, thankfully, without the often horrible too-stylish features that often go hand in hand with that. The hotel was chic, with beautiful wood flooring, simple features and a pleasant bar. The staff were always on hand, friendly and efficient. No complaints whatsoever, the room was clean & comfortable, just a little... More

The bar area was very nice and staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast had a great... More
