I'm self employed and work away a lot so hotels are often a begrudged expense out of my profit so I often chose the cheapest to get my head down.
What appealed to me about the orchard was the price.
Don't let this put you off.
I arrived at 3am as I was working nights and was greeted by the night porter who was happy to serve me a couple of pints without feeling I was inconveniencing him.
The room was basic and very clean, all I need really, tea/coffee and decent shower.
Room included breakfast and I was worried I'd miss it as I didn't intend to vacate room till midday.
Not a problem, one of the girls made a note for the maids to leave me alone till midday and I could have a full breakfast in the restaurant at midday. Fantastic service!!!
Got down to bar at 1230 and was offered a large freshly ground coffee and the breakfast menu.
Scottish breakfast and other options looked good but I had the 'Residents Breakfast' 2 sausage, bacon, 2 eggs, toast, beans and mushrooms.
Where I'm from you'd get charged £10 for a breakfast of this size and quality!! It was included in the price.
All in all a fantastic place for the money and compliments to the night porter and waitress/bar staff.
Excellent job. More
