Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Large modern rooms, bright and cheerful. Comfortable bed and fluffy towels. Heating is controlled by yourself and they have windows that actually open.! Staff members - Charlotte and Joanna were very friendly and efficient. Breakfast was exceptional. Hubby had eggs benedict and l enjoyed the full English, the sausages were the best I've ever tasted. I'm a light sleeper and we requested a quiet room, we were given room 304 and we slept like babies 👶 l would definitely recommend the lovely hotel. Cheers the Johnson's.

The Orchid Hotel is such a beautiful hotel, it stands out among all the other tired hotels nearby. The interior is beautiful and I received a wonderful, warm welcome on arrival. My single room was tastefully furnished, again looking newly renovated. Great staff, great location and a fantastic find

Planning a wedding is hard work, incredibly stressful and having never been married before I had no idea where to begin. I was made aware of The Orchid hotel and the wedding events they do there. Charlotte was amazing!!!! We couldn’t praise this lady any more for all the help and guidance we was given to help us organise the wedding day and evening reception. She has made planning our special day so easy by taking on the stress for us and making us feel comfortable enough leave it in her hands to make it happen the way we want it. If like us you want less stress and ease I’d highly recommend The Orchid and Charlotte to help plan your day. She has promised to be with us every step of the way and the reassurance is much needed at this time. Thank you

We were recommended the Orchid Hotel for a family dinner. I can say we we’re not disappointed. To stat with We had mussels cooked in a lovely light creamy sauce and a ham hock terrine which was delicious. For our main we had stone bass with chicory and new potatoes, rump of lamb which was served pink and a sirloin streak with chunky chips and a pepper corn sauce on the side all three mains we’re cooked to perfection. To finish we had chocolate pots with vanilla ice cream, cheese and biscuits and a selection of ice creams again all very tasty. The service we received was attentive but not intrusive. We will be definitely going back and would not hesitate in recommending The Orchid Hotel.
