We spent the two days,before this at the Rockliffe Hall 5 star hotel, one of the trip advisor top 25....so we're expecting to come to earth with a bang. Not at all, the Orchard was a really nice place to stay over Christmas, it had a good atmosphere and very pleasant staff. The rooms are clean, the beds very comfy and the showers excellent (better than the Rockliffe!). It even has a small gym! The temperature of the room was easily controllable and the lighting, especially as it is an eco hotel was excellent. My only gripes were a very bright led light on the air conditioning control, which had to be covered to make the room dark enough to sleep and the bar food. (Our fish and chips was pretty tiny for £12, served on a wooden board and was served with cold mushy peas in a separate pot. We asked for them to be heated and by the time they returned there was half the quantity first served and our chips were cold!) Apart from this it was extremely good and cheap...and much to our surprise there was a Christmas stocking with some goodies in it left for us outside our door on Christmas morning...a lovely touch...thank you!
