My booking was made directly with the hotel and when I rang to book 2 nights I specifically enquired as to whether the bar facilities would be available on New Years Eve even though I knew there were events taking place and I was assured this was not a problem. We were having dinner at another restaurant in Bournemouth and...

Stayed here recently, wasn't sure what to expect but was really impressed with the place, super pleasant staff, really clean and nice decor inside the hotel. Room was large, warm and comfortable. 5-10 mins walk to the center of town, less than 5 mins to the beach. Really good breakfast buffet that included a full English as well as vegetarian...

My husband and I travelled from London to stay here for New Years Eve. We had plans to attend a party with distant family but the plans were cancelled at the last minute due to grave illness. The hotel had a private function organised but it was booked out so we were left with nothing to do on NYE. Rosie...

Stayed here for a work trip.....arrived later in the evening after a long drive, a lovely welcome by reception staff (as it should be) checked in swiftly, and a lovely room, huge comfy bed, nespresso machine, still and sparkling water, hot choc, bath and shower - all tastefully decorated and spotless. The TV wasn't working correctly due to a faulty...

I was impressed with the decor in the lobby and bar and the room was ok, just a bit generic. I was at a wedding reception and the food was good considering having to cater to a large group (50+ people). The breakfast was very good the following morning and I think that the whole stay was good value for...

We stayed for one night at the beginning of January as our daughter wanted to spend her 9th birthday by the sea. We could not fault the hotel. Excellent staff, comfortable beds and a delicious breakfast. We'd mentioned that it was our daughter's birthday and she was thrilled when several of the breakfast staff wished her a happy birthday and...

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.

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
