Orchid Hotel

Recently refurbished throughout, Bournemouth’s pioneering Orchid hotel sets a new benchmark in boutique. At the vanguard of Britain’s love affair with boutique hotels in the early noughties, the Orchid has refined and redefined its original concept, combining intimate informality with tranquil, away-from-it-all seclusion in the gorgeous surroundings of an Edwardian villa on Bournemouth’s enchanting wooded Eastcliff.
