My wife booked the Orchid for our weekend in Bournemouth some months ago. We were extremely happy when we arrived, nothing was too much trouble. We arrived very early, too early to check in, but we were welcome to leave our bags and use the hotel facilities. We had booked a delux room, which was spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable....

Close to town centre/places to eat and not too far to the beach and local buses. Parking on site or at adjacent site across the road at sister hotel which is being refurbished. Restaurant... More

Went here yesterday for afternoon tea with my daughter. Was expecting the typical Bournemouth hotel experience - i.e bit of faded grandeur and middle of the road food. We couldn't have been more wrong. The afternoon tea at the Orchid was absolutely lovely - beautifully presented - fabulous attentive service and the home made cakes were divine. The hotel is...

Spent a lovely time having afternoon tea at this hotel, we had a Groupon voucher. We had a very nice glass of prosecco before being served with tea on a well stocked tower. Well presented and very fresh. Lovely selection. No one rushed us and were offered the choice of sitting outside or in the lounge/bar area. Recommended.

We stayed here for a week and can't fault it at all. The room was clean and up to date, and the bedding clean and comfortable. Big flatscreen TV, tea and coffee kept full, as well as the shower gel and shampoo. Good amount of towels and very nice shower. The staff were really friendly and wanted to do anything... More

Came to the Orchid Hotel for a short break with my mother, the hotel still being refurbished but yet still amazing... The hotel will be amazing once it's done, the standards will be very high. We had problems with our room which the reception team sorted for us. And what made my rating four star was the bar tender/ night... More

Great room, staff and breakfasts sums it up really! Arrival: On-site parking was tight, but they have a sister site across the road (which is the next to be refurbished) with ample off-road free parking. Reception staff were welcoming and helpful. There is a lift, but a member of staff is needed as it is key-operated. Room: We booked a... More

Simply the best afternoon tea with the most incredible macaroons. Will definitely be returning soon. Well done to all the staff for getting it so right from the welcome to the excellent customer service and of course the quality of the food.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Refreshed, revitalised and revived.... Back in the day, a trailblazing boutique hotel for Bournemouth, the Orchid has almost completed a dramatic transformation with bedrooms refurbished, lounges, function rooms and public areas re-imagined; the whole hotel re-born. More than a mere makeover, it's an evolutionary change for the Orchid, setting it apart as the only hotel of its kind in Bournemouth- offering a unique blend of contemporary comfort, informal elegance and charm. 90% of the refurbishment has now been completed with the last phase being our new restaurant which we aim to have open by this Summer, offering informal elegant dining emphasising on simplicity with great food and service. Freshly cooked breakfast with ample choice, beautifully designed bedrooms with power showers, air conditioning and crisp white linen....At the Orchid you will find an effortless blend of home comforts, contemporary sophistication and exceptional service designed to put you at ease from the moment you arrive. ... more   less
