We were last minute stayers due to unforeseen circumstances. The owners could not have been more helpful, the hotel is very well furnished and spotless with classic decor. They made the very hard job of running a hotel look easy. Breakfast was delicious, beds were very comfortable, atmosphere was welcoming.

A fabulous place to stay for a relaxing break. Steve and Jane are great hosts who strive to ensure a good stay for all their guests. Since they took over ownership they have made massive improvements in updating and upgrading their hotel. Immaculately clean, comfy beds, great breakfast and well positioned in Bideford. Would highly recommend a stay here.

We stayed here over a weekend to go to a wedding in Bideford. It's a peaceful location and the hotel is handsomely presented. Our room had everything we needed in terms of amenities - comfortable beds, a good shower, fresh towels, television and even tea and biscuits in the room! Breakfast was delicious and the hosts were very friendly and... More

Great comfy beds, lovely dining area, hospitable service and good breakfast. However, the room rate is somewhat overpriced for the standard/state of the bathroom facilities in the roo. we always had difficulty in controlling the water temperature when using the shower.

If you wish to stay at a first rate b&b then look no further than the Orchard Hill Hotel. A delightfully presented and friendly place perched above Bideford with great views of the river and town yet no more than a 10 minute walk to the quay. Our room with shower en suite was beautifully decorated and pristine; the breakfast... More

Steve and Jane Croker took over this hotel in January 2015. It was a splendid and spacious Victorian villa which had been badly maintained by the previous owners. They have nearly finished restoring it to its former glory and are making a real success of it. They offer a warm and friendly welcome and are every helpful and solicitous. We... More

Our second stay here as a family (Mum, dad, and two daughters). As before we were warmly welcomed by Jane & Steve and shown to our rooms. As we had been before last Autumn we knew that the standards they have set were high, and we were not disappointed on this visit either. The whole place is spotlessly clean and... More

Would recommend lovely place to stay, breakfast was excellent, good value for money. The owners were friendly and very knowledgable about the area. Also gave us some information for our onward journey, we went across Exmoor and visited Lynmouth took the funicular railway to Lynton, we would not have known to do this without Steve's enthusiastic dialogue about the area....

The hotel changed hands about a year ago so any reviews earlier than that should not be taken into account whatsoever. This is a great small hotel, situated along a peaceful little country lane high above the town. The new owners are very welcoming and attentive but not so that your privacy is invaded. I was a single traveller and... More
