My boyfriend and I visited this hotel for two nights as we were attending a wedding (and all the rooms in the wedding hotel had sold out!). We booked The Orchid as it was described as a 'boutique' hotel. Let me tell you, it was quite an experience. The check-in experience was great; lovely staff and easy, quick hand over... More

Hotel is so dated, mold in bathroom, hot water takes half hour to come through into the mixer shower, very noisy at night, doors slamming, windows falling apart. The bar.... Cold drinks not cold. Full English breakfast swimming in fat, tinned mushrooms, cold toast.... Worse hotel ever stayed in... Avoid like the plague
