    The staff is very kind. Very attentive. Very good breakfast. We had dinner the first night and it was great.

  • 8.8
    Superb

    The friendly staff and comfortable decor in the reception area and dining room.

    Whilst the 'Front of house' looked great, the bedrooms looked 'tired'. Some fixtures were worn or broken. We had to move rooms because of a leak through the ceiling and whilst the staff were happy for us to move rooms no-one came to help us move or look at the problem. In our second room the bedside lights were not working - we did not bother to report this until the following morning when we checked out.

    Superb

    The hotel was in a really good location, only a few minutes walk to the beach and shops. The decor was nice and modern. The room was clean and well presented. For the price it was good value for money. Good breakfast too.

    Only one downside, the bed mattress was not very comfy it was quite springy. However, for one night it was manageable.

    Very good

    The room was roomy, clean and well appointed, large comfortable bed.

    The breakfast was a bit manic with supplies constantly running out and too few staff in support. The dining room was very busy with tables so close together you couldn't actually sit comfortably as the chairs backed into each other. Also had to queue for 10 mins to check out.

    Very good

    The staff, very helpful and welcoming and our room was located, as requested in a quiet part of the hotel away from the Christmas party!

    Hotel itself in need of redocoration and the room was rather cold on arrival as heating had not been put on

  • 7.8
    Fabulous

    quirky decor, good parking, spacious public areas, very pleasant restaurant, friendly reception, good last minute room rate, excellent location.

    had to have breakfast one morning in less pleasant nearby sister hotel; mattress rather thin

    Fabulous

    The organisation of my sons wedding was great. The ceremony and the facilities we used made it very special.

    Some areas needed to be refurbished..... which was a shame.

    Fabulous

    We stayed at this hotel to attend a wedding and reception. The Orchid has excellent facilities for both weddings and wedding receptions and the staff are very friendly and helpful.

  • 8.8
    Superb

    The Hotel has an excellent far eastern decor which complements the arrangement of the hotel's facilities without compromising the comfort of the guests. My wife and I would most definitely return to this hotel again. Having stayed at several hotels in Bournemouth we rate this one of the best and certainly value for money.

    Very good

    Really nice hotel does need a little paint job although breakfast lovely needs more storage in rooms very pleasent staff clearing staff were very nice too

  • 6.2
    Good

    Very convenient for the beach (East Cliff), and also for the University Halls of Residence - useful for parents visiting their children. Shops and cafes/restaurants within easy walking distance. Quiet, leafy area.

    Marketed as a "modern boutique" hotel, but I felt the website was somewhat misleading as furniture and fittings in the bedrooms/bathrooms were functional only and not of a particularly high standard, and our room was much smaller than the one illustrated online. The Thai theme seemed a bit superficial. Breakfast service was very slow, and not particularly helpful when the sausage in my husband's meal was undercooked.

    Very good

    This is my second stay at this hotel and booked again for later on in the year. The hotel is ideally located not far from the town centre or beach. It is very modern and the rooms are decorated very tastily. The breakfast is very good and served very promptly. Very clean and comfortable. Would definately recommend this hotel

    The only thing I would mention is that the towels provided are very small and the showers could be more powerful

    Guest rating

    This must be our third time to the hotel as the location is ideal and the breakfast is very good

    the only thing i would say on this visit is that we changed rooms as the double we were provided was very small so we upgraded to the Superior room straight away but the toilet did not look clean and there was only a small bath towel provided not hand towels and when our room was cleaned the next day our toilet rolls were not replenished and one cup was left dirty

    Good

    Although the rooms were cheap, the central heating was set to such a low level that I had to wear a jumper to sleep! I asked reception for an electric heater and he said there were none around. Apart from that, the ceiling had watermarks which looked unsightly. Decent apart from that
