We enjoyed this side of Big Island: volcanoes, rain forest, water falls, coves & beautiful valley, etc. It's less touristic than west coast. But Hilo has very few options for accommodation. We were lucky to book with Orchid Tree by chance. It turned out to be a perfect stay. We agree with everything said by other reviews: convenient, nice, clean,... More

We stayed here because of the great ratings on TA. When we stated at the place we were pleasantly surprised. The owners were spectacular and made us feel right at home. They did a fantastic job and really deserve the great comments.

My husband, son and I stayed two nights at the Orchid Tree while in Hilo, we enjoyed our time there. We are from Alaska so apprecited the air conditioned room! The breakfast was great, lots of fresh fruit and baked goods. We liked that it had only two rooms, it was quiet (except for the frogs ;). We enjoyed meeting... More

This is a wonderful B&B right in the heart of Hilo. If you are looking for a wonderful place to stay when traveling to the BI support these nice people who work so hard to make Orchid Tree a top rated place on TA . The rooms are nice and clean and the owners are the best!

The Orchid Tree B&B was just the kind of place my husband and I were hoping for. We like our privacy and also like to meet people in an intimate, quiet setting. This accommodated all our comfortable needs. Steve, our host, made us feel very much at home with the use of the pool and hot tub. His breakfast was... More

My husband and I stayed here two nights and wish we would have stayed longer! You could easily stay here and visit Volcano National Park on a day trip (which is what we should have done). The rooms (there are only two) are spacious, clean, and beautifully decorated. We stayed in the Koi Suite which had its own private lanai... More

Only two rooms, so never crowded. About 1 1/2 miles north of Hilo harbor. Steve provided great food, and ideas about local places to eat and see. Nicely landscaped yard with pool and fish pond. You can sleep with doors and window wide open (though the birds chirp too loud for my wife!), and feel like you're sleeping outdoors. Very... More

We stayed at Orchid Tree the first couple nights of our vacation before driving to Kona. Wonderful place. Steve was a great host. Lovely breakfasts. Steve was very helpful with tips of places to visit and eat. Great surfing spot just a block away. We walked there in the mornings to watch the sun rise. We hope to visit again!

The Orchid Tree is a lovely place to stay. Close to town. Close to the beach. Clean, spacious rooms. Comfortable bed. Pretty grounds. Excellent wifi reception. Steve is a fine host: friendly and a good guide for local attractions.

Very good bed and breakfast - clean and big room. Breakfast is a very tasty plate of fresh fruits and bread, and the ocean view is very nice. We will definitely be saying at Orchid Tree B&B again when we come back to the Big Island!
