Stayed for 2 nights at Easter. Hotel is well situated and a short walk to cliff top and town centre. Excellent parking facilities which are free unlike a lot of other places in the area. Room was smaller than we expected but had everything we needed and was spotlessly clean. Staff all helpful and polite. Decor was very nice all...

We attended a wedding at the hotel. It was a really special venue and the staff were very friendly and professional. The food was superb for mass catering - we enjoyed a prawn starter, chicken and a lovely pudding - they really looked after us all.

An overnight break & we weren't dissapointed. All of the staff were so friendly & greeted us with smiles. The location of the hotel is approx 10 mins walk to the beachfront & restaurants.

A unique name Orchid Hotel, with its unique delightful interior decor style. Bournemouth station 15 mins walk, staff very welcoming on arrival. The room was average size and the bathroom very small. It has a lovely relaxing feel to it where I could sit and read in the lounge area undisturbed. This is vital after a busy day working day....
