We visited this hotel in Bournemouth for a weekend break. The hotel has had a complete makeover and has a wonderful boutique feel to it. The rooms were modern, well decorated and very comfortable and quiet. There was a lovely atmosphere in the reception lounge area and a real buzz when the popular afternoon tea was served. If you are... More

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.

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
