Refreshed, revitalised and revived.... Back in the day, a trailblazing boutique hotel for Bournemouth, the Orchid has 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. Our New Restaurant, No 34 opened its doors just a few months ago, offering informal elegant dining emphasizing on simplicity using locally sourced ingredients. 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

Lovely hotel, great location as it's a 10 minute walk to the beach, park and shops. The staff were all very helpful and we were also gifted with a discounted breakfast by Amber the chef. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed here November 20th. We were booked for a festive cream tea and coordinated date to be able to see Christmas Tree Wonderland in the same weekend. The hotel was very accommodating, lovely room with very comfortable bed. Staff on duty were very friendly and made us feel very welcome. We will go back again. Thank you to Natalie for arranging our lovely weekend. Jean and Steve Botham

Visited the orchid Hotel alone, late check in, greeted by a friendly young gentleman (ken) who was very helpful. Showed me to my room. Was a very friendly and warm welcome from him. When I got to the room it was amazing! Clean! The bed was a very good size (looks like a super king size room 115?) Bathroom with a bath! All very sanitary and clean overall a very pleasant experience thank you so much!!

Charlotte and her team really went the extra mile to make sure my friends wedding went as smoothly as possible. The bar staff were very attentive in making sure you never had to wait to long to have your glass topped back up. The wedding breakfast service was run very smoothly to make sure the guest had their meal at the right temperature and the lamb was cooked to perfection. The hotel it’s self was very clean and it looks as though the hotel has had a recent refurbishment. The location is ideal for holiday makers as the hotel has good access to the beach and bus routes.
