We spent 2 nights at Orchards Inn on the 20 and 21 July 2013. We had a room on the second floor which I strongly recommend, it has great views and is a good distance from the car park so you don't get noise from the car park. Orchards Inn is more like a motel than a hotel and is quite expensive, but worth every penny for the view. The room has a large balcony with great views of the red rock.
The hotel is centrally located in town, making it easy to get to all the shops. The hotel is also closely located to L'Amberge restaurant (see my review) which is a fantastic place to eat. While the restaurant is very close, they can send a car to pick you up and take you back to Orchards, which is handy when it rains (and boy can it rain!).
One of the drawbacks of the room is that it doesn't have a room safe, which is a bit of a pain. Also, the parking is first come first served however, there is additional parking a very short distance away. Also there are no lifts, so can be a little difficult to haul heavy luggage up to the second floor. However, the second floor is only one level above the car park, so not too bad.
As pointed out by Mikiai57, the breakfast we paid for (buffet) was actually a very poor Continental breakfast - coffee, juice, cereal and a pastry. We were offered 20% discount on the full breakfast plus £4.00 off the cost of the meal. Not really good enough, I would have preferred a refund on what we paid for the breakfast. The breakfast is also not provided in the hotel but in a restaurant a short walk down the road. It wasn't a big deal, but a minor irritation that was not necessary.
Would I stay here again, yes I would, but I would insist on not paying for the breakfast.
