My husband and I spent 3 nights at Orchid Tree in June. Our accommodations were spotless and recently updated. The bed was extremely comfortable. The bathroom was extra large with a huge shower. The room was beautiful, we had a nice view of the grounds and distant ocean. The breakfast was wonderful! We have never seen a more beautiful fruit... More

My husband and i stayed for 2 nights. It is clean, sparkly, and very tasteful. The breakfasts were delicious. The grounds are well maintained. Steve is a perfect host. Nice walks nearby and a short drive into Hilo. Would highly recommend staying here.

We stayed 4 nights at the Orchid Tree B&B. I was not disappointed, to say the least. The location was great, close to Hilo, and a good starting point for sight seeing. We stayed in the Koi Suite, which was spacious and tastefully decorated. The B&B and grounds are beautiful. The breakfast fruit platter was plentiful, had excellent variety, and... More

My wife and I stayed at Orchid Tree for a few nights during our honeymoon and couldn't have asked for a better experience. The room was clean, well-appointed and extremely comfortable. Steve, the owner, has lived most of his life on the island and I'd be hard-pressed to find someone more knowledgeable about the big island than him. He gave... More

From all the positive reviews that have been written it doesn't leave me with much else to say. Great place, Great location and an even better host. With only 2 rooms available make sure you lock it in early in your travel prep. You don't want to miss out on staying here.

Again, we trusted the good taste and reviews of other Trip Advisor contributors and chose the Orchid Tree to stay in Hilo. We spent 6 nights there. Our studio was tastefully decorated and was very comfortable. Steve was a great host and was always ready with the one or the other tip. Breakfast was something to look forward to every... More

My husband and I stayed at the Orchid Tree last summer -- but I cannot let more time go by before I write a review. This is a lovely B and B in a wonderful location. My husband and I stayed in the Koi room which was wonderfully decorated with a beautiful shower. If you are a light sleeper, be... More

This is the best B&B in Hilo and although I have stayed in many over the years in many places this one is special and deserves 100% satisfaction rate. There are only two studios to choose from and both are beautiful. They are at opposite ends of the home so you each have an end unit with the owners kitchen... More

We stayed at this Bread and Breakfast for two nights in April. We had never tried a B&B before, but the reviews were just too good not to take the opportunity since we were going to be on the “Big” Island of Hawaii for a few days. We we're not disappointed! The find is so good that we're thinking about... More

We -family of 3, with daughter (11)- had a fantastic time. Even though we arrived so late that the owner Steve wasn't there to greet us, a lovely note was pinned to the door of our suite to welcome us. Our suite was spacious with lovely local decorations and interior, and at the same time comfortable. The bath was small... More
