Our room was over the air conditioning units which were noisy during the night and the extractors kicked in at around 6.30am, very noisy!! The view out the window was grim. The hotel should mention this as it is not a very welcoming sight. A broken plug in the bathroom too. The Hotel is very attractive and in a good location with free parking. The downstairs area lounge and bar are very colourful. The staff were friendly and multi tasking in between reception and the bar.

We recently held a birthday party at the Orchid hotel for my daughters 21st. Natalie was very accomodating of anything we wanted to include during the event. All of the staff on the night were very helpful and everything ran smoothly. A special mention for Charlotte in the bar, she was excellent. I was a little worried about the buffet food due to other reviews but I have to say the food was great, it was plentiful and hot. I had lots of positive comments. It was far better than I ever expected. The configuration of the rooms worked well for us too as we had a quieter room, a party room and the outside space. Also breakfast the next morning was really good too. Freshly cooked to order and plenty of it. All in all a great experience and I would highly recommend.

Another annual trip with friends. We all stayed in the orchid again. This year the group was the biggest yet, but the hotel easily accommodated us for 4 nights. We have been coming for quite a few years now, even through the pandemic. But this year things seemed to be fully back to normal in Bournemouth after Covid-19. As usual, the service was great. We had an afternoon tea one day and a dinner at the restaurant 34 another day. Food was awesome. We also used the bar most nights, which was really comfy and welcoming. Charlotte even ordered a bottle of kraken when I asked for it the first night we got there, and it was on the bar shelf the next day! We also made use of the courtyard and had a fashion show for the kids! This hotel really does feel like home away from home. Big shout out to Natalie, Charlotte, Mason and Liam! Natalie’s management of the place is so efficient and friendly and her staff clearly enjoy their jobs. We look forward to returning again next year.

We were looking forward to our stay at The Ochid but unfortunately it failed to live up to our expectations. The lifts were not working so we were left to carry up our suitcases up the stairs. Whilst Google advertises the hotel as having a restaurant, their website in our view is unclear, we had nevertheless been sent a message by the Hotel when we booked highlighting the fact that their new restaurant had opened. Since then the restaurant closed but we were not advised. Effectively at present they are just a B&B. On the first day of our stay we were advised that a cooked breakfast was not available that day, a continental breakfast was made available although we found it to be very limited. When we checked in we were advised that the rooms would be cleaned every other day but they weren't. After complaining our room was serviced on the third day. On the positive side the staff were friendly and the Hotel has a good location. Also when we expressed our disappointed the Hotel Manager, as a gesture of goodwill applied a 20% discount to our bill which although welcomed did not make up for the negative experience we endured.

Thank you for your review A fair few points there as we discussed when at the hotel. Something for us to look at in regards to advertising as our website is clear but Google does say different. All our booking agents say the same as our website also as we established. We have experienced some staff issues in our kitchen of late which has now been resolved We hope you enjoy your next stop in Exeter

Myself and my now husband booked The Orchid for our wedding back in 2018, covid meant we had to postpone for two years. I cannot fault the wedding we had, the rooms are beautiful and clean, attentive and Natalie is the nicest woman I have ever met. She made sure that our day was perfect and we’ve seen her so many times over the years that I consider her a friend now. You won’t regret staying here, or booking an event here. We will be back many many times for nights away, because we enjoy staying here so much. Perfect. Absolutely perfect.

Just had an evening meal at the Orchid hotel and the food quality and presentation was way above average and special. A young man, Mason was our waiter. He is training for the profession and was superb in manner, confidence and people skills.
