The Hotel

Relaxed, elegant and effortlessly informal, the Orchid Hotel combines the best of boutique with a laid-back,
intimate charm you won’t find anywhere else. Recently refurbished, many of the 31 ensuite bedrooms
have been completely redesigned and fully air-conditioned; the public, lounge and dining areas entirely remodelled; the wedding
and function rooms renovated from scratch. A secluded oasis of tranquillity on Bournemouth’s wooded Eastcliff, 
it’s at once in the heart of town and away from it all.
A pitch-perfect blend of personal service, familiar comfort and timeless grace.

“Whether you’re on holiday or on business, we think you should feel relaxed. At the Orchid, that’s what we’re all about.”
Christina Joannides

The Orchid

it’s a state of mind

The Orchid has changed almost out of recognition since we opened as Bournemouth’s first boutique hotel back in 2004 – but our philosophy remains the same. Everything we do, everything about the hotel – from the glamorously remodelled ensuites to king size beds as standard; from the laid-back, informal ambience to the flexibility to eat and drink what you want, when you want… it’s all driven by our complete commitment to your comfort and relaxation. It doesn’t matter if you’re here on holiday or on business, the most important thing is that you relax from the moment you arrive. That’s why every member of our team is trained to be professional, attentive and courteous at all times – but never intrusive or indiscreet. It’s all about putting you at ease… and we like to think it’s one of the things we do best.

You’re better connected

at the Orchid

For all the Orchid’s laid-back, homely comforts, we’ve also invested heavily in technology to make us one of Bournemouth’s very best connected hotels. Free to access throughout the whole hotel, our superfast fibreoptic wifi means you’ll have full signal and rapid data speeds wherever you are – whether it’s at the workstation in your room, browsing at breakfast or at work in one of our function rooms.


restyled, resplendent

We’re really rather proud of the newly refurbished Orchid. In keeping with our philosophy of relaxation first, the hotel has been refurbished and re-furnished with comfort at the very top of our wishlist. From front desk to function suites, from restaurants to rooms, it’s cosy and welcoming at every turn. So kick off your shoes, check-in your cares and immerse yourself in the warm glow of our little oasis of calm. We love it here – we think you will too.

So is the Orchid


We think so. By our reckoning, there are around 100 hotels in Bournemouth alone, but we can’t think of one that offers quite what we do. Natural, informal elegance. Intimate, secluded style. Attentive, genuinely friendly staff. And, above all, the comfort and the calm to put you at complete ease from the moment you arrive to when we bid farewell until next time.
