9 of us stayed for one night during a cycling trip around the island. There was secure storage for all 9 bikes. The hotel itself needs a lot of attention - very old and not very clean, shower never worked properly, lots of other things such as TV, window catces not working properly but it is in a good postion...

The towels and sheets were clean and fresh, the... More

My husband and I stayed at the Orchardcroft for 3 nights at the beginning of September and had a very enjoyable stay. I am very surprised by the previous reviews because we found the hotel very good value for money and did not feel there was a problem with cleanliness. The hotel is a bit tired in some areas but...

This has to be the worst hotel that my husband & I have ever stayed in, It may be dated but that is not a excuse for it to be dirty !! The bedroom, bathroom, dining area can only be described as filthy.The garden area is a no go zone because they are obviously not maintained, very overgrown & full... More

Arrived with 2 children aged 2 and 9 on 11/8/12. The family room was dirty on arrival and we had to ask for the carpet to be hoovered. The shower had scum and mildew around the bath an screen.

The Orchardcroft hotel was kind enough to accept our booking that was made in the middle of the night. The service was excellent, they met us up when we arrived, served us coffee and buscuits and took well care of us. I truly recommend this hotel!
