Nice reception/entrance and bar area, with great location, 5-10 minute walk into the centre of town. The room itself was a bit basic, not much decor, but the bathroom was a nice modern looking suite, which was slightly more impressive. Certainly couldn't fault it on value for money, we paid £42 for a twin room for a night, including breakfast in the morning, we chose the fry up which was a good choice, but there was a variety breakfast options to chose from. Perfect for a one night or weekend stay, basic room with kettle, tea, coffee, mini fridge, flat screen TV, iron and ironing board. Not sure if all of those are standard items for all rooms but imagine most items where. We certainly had no issues or complaints with the hotel or staff. So I would definitely recommend The Orchid Hotel, mainly for short stays as if you were staying a longer the basic room would probably not be comforting enough after a few days, but I will add there were building/extending, so I think they were upgrading/renovating the place.
