We stayed one night at The Orchid and were pleasantly surprised at how nice it was. Lovely refurbished bar area, comfortable room, great big shower, very clean throughout and a lovely breakfast as well. Couldn't really fault it at all for the money and will definitely go back.

Only stayed the one night here with my girlfriend but we were both very happy. Very good value for money and the room was great, location even better! The breakfast that was included in the price was also very good as it wasn't just toast and cereal! Would stay here again and recommend to others!

We stayed at the hotel for 1 night with friends for a concert at BIC. The hotel is lovely, beautiful decor and very friendly staff. Lovely rooms with plenty of space and lovely view over the small garden. Easy walking distance to BIC and town centre. Would definitely return.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. More than a mere makeover, it's an evolutionary change for the Orchid, setting it apart as the only hotel of its kind in Bournemouth- offering a unique blend of contemporary comfort, informal elegance and charm. 90% of the refurbishment has now been completed with the last phase being our new restaurant which we aim to have open by this Summer, offering informal elegant dining emphasising on simplicity with great food and service. 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
