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

This is a lovely hotel whose owners work very hard to ensure you have a very enjoyable stay. The rooms are comfortable and peaceful as the hotel is situated in a quiet residential area close to Bideford and Westward Ho!

Our family of 4 stayed in this beautiful hotel for a 1 night stay in Bideford for a family funeral. Jane and Steve couldn't have been more helpful. Our every need was catered for. Our rooms were lovely and homely with some lovely touches. The lounge and dining room were fantastic. After a very comfortable nights sleep we enjoyed a... More

We have just returned from a 2 night stay in this little gem of a hotel! Think all the latest reviews have said it all! Jane and Steve couldn't be more friendly and made us feel most welcome. The decor suits the lovely Victorian building. Our room was excellent, with a river view. As for the breakfasts.....DELICIOUS! We will certainly... More

I stayed here for a one night stay with a friend. Given a very good welcome by Steve. The room was clean and fresh and with a nice decor. The ensuite bath/shower room was also clean and welcoming. There is a large car park. There was a good choice of different foods for breakfast, and all presented well and very... More

My friend and I were attending a Family History workshop in Bideford on the Wednesday and wanted to be there early in the morning so decided to stay nearby the night before. On arrival at Orchard Hill Hotel we were made most welcome by Steve and were really impressed by our well-appointed and scrupulously clean twin room and en-suite bathroom.... More

Myself, my husband and my ten-year old daughter have just got back from a two night stay at the Orchard Hill Hotel in Bideford. We had a lovely time there, not least because of the warm and friendly welcome we received and the ongoing friendliness and hospitality of both Steve and Jane, the owners. We were surprised and impressed to... More

Arriving rather late on a winter’s evening we could not have been made more welcome by the owner, who also presented breakfast next day cooked just the way we like. The property has been extensively modernised in a tasteful style, is easy to find (signposted) and located at a walkable distance to the town centre. Heartily recommended if you are... More
