... found parking for the vans. Well around the villages that is, as there are certainly places to park out away from the villages. Anyway it was a lovely area. Lunch was at Lymington in the New Forest down on the Coast, this is where Ben Ainslie the Americas Cup skipper calls home. A lovely little village. From there we headed through building traffic to the Jurassic Coast and to Durdle Door in particular. Don't you just love ...

... colder weather up in Scotland! We're really looking forward to that - sure beats the Texas heat. For dinner we chose the traditional, set time seating at 8:00 PM. This is such a great way to meet people - our table for this cruise includes a couple (both doctors) from Los Angeles, a woman and her mother from Ohio, and a lady from Michigan. Great conversation - everyone at our table is well travelled and very ...

... I invested in new brakes. Spillers Farm, the B&B for the night was a short way along the main road. The owners, Bridget and Keith, had moved from London to run the 13acre farm and are self sufficient in fruit and veg, also from the sheep, chickens and Gloucester Old Spot pigs--no pigs there at present. They make their own sausages, etc and are probably influenced by the nearby River Cottage of TV fame. The strong head wind and hills took their toll and I was early to ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews The Orchid Hotel Bournemouth

    Appalled

    from

    The lift (despite having a disability label) appears to have vanished, therefore the facitlity for disabled people like myself, made the stay even more difficult.

    Booked a superior room but there was nothing whatsoever superior about it. The "king-sized" bed was two beds pushed together, one of the upright chairs has a huge stain on it, the internet facility, as advertised didn't work and two light bulbs were already blown when we first got to the room.

    Breakfast was poor. This included the little pats of butter wrapped up and Hartley's little plastic tubs of jam and honey. Not good enough for a three star hotel.

    There was nothing superior about the hotel or room whatsoever.

    Top value! Excellent staff!

    from

    This is one of the best you can get for the money! A quick walk from everything, upscale room (better than 90% in UK) and really helpfull staff! Breakfast is a little small but ok! Contact the property directly and you might get away from 40 Pounds or less per person incl. breakfast and wifi internet access! Very pleased - clean and charming - 100% recommended!!

    Well located

    from

    After reading recent reviews felt a little nervous!! Upon arriving we were greated by well mannered and friendly staff. Accomodation was clean, tidy and refreshing. Close to town centre. Only negative were very creaky floor boards and on a noisy road (like most of Bournemouths Hotels) Breakfast very good, decor had a modern touch. Not a luxury hotel but a top B & B and not a floral curtain in sight!!

    Not bad at all!

    from

    Having read the other reviews of this hotel I was slightly nervous on arrival- however we were pleasantly surprised.

    Agreed- its not like the big plush hotels in bournemouth, but neither is it anything like as bad as some of the tacky pokey b&b's you get in the area.

    The staff were friendly, the hotel had a nice charm to it and the room was clean. Breakfast was delicious too with lots of choice.

    This is certainly more of a young persons hotel- and if you fit in this bracket then you cant go far wrong!

    Poor accommodation, poor service and loss of £60 deposit

    from

    I paid a £60 deposit for 2 rooms at the Orchid Hotel in July 2006. On checking in, we realised that the rooms were totally unsuitable. One could only be accessed by climbing a very narrow flight of stairs (partially blocked at the time by a window frame propped in the landing!). The other room was so small that the bathroom door did not open fully due to hitting the double bed.

    Nice hotel

    from

    nice friendly hotel would stay again bigroom but small tv some things need updating overall fine paid 80 per night per room

    Not Bad

    from

    I only stayed here for one night B&B, and after reading the previous reviews was a little pensive. However, lets be frank tho, this is NOT a boutique hotel. Rather its a nice modern B&B, recently decorated refurbished and decorated with a modern and contempary flavour. Which was nice.

    Needs to do a lot better

    from

    Stayed at this hotel for one night. I like boutique hotels and have stayed at several in London so I guess went along expecting something similar and the website for hotel also led me to believe this.

    The Orchid in Bournemouth was a total let down

    from

    My husband and I paid £45 each per night for a weekend (totally over priced) in May at the Orchid and our visit was very disappointing. Their website gave us the impression that it would a treat to stay there and worth every penny.
