went to a show at the b i c
The organisation of my sons wedding was great. The ceremony and the facilities we used made it very special. Some areas needed to be refurbished..... which was a shame.
Good Scrambled egg and service at Breakfast.
quirky decor, good parking, spacious public areas, very pleasant restaurant, friendly reception, good last minute room rate, excellent location. had to have breakfast one morning in less pleasant nearby sister hotel; mattress rather thin
The reception and lounge area was very attractively decorated and inviting. All the staff we dealt with were very pleasant and helpful. The bedrooms were very basic and the blinds in our room were broken in places. The room was also at the front of the hotel so was quite noisy, however it was clean and warm.
the setting and breakfast sqeaky floor boards and windows were hard to shut.
We stayed at this hotel to attend a wedding and reception. The Orchid has excellent facilities for both weddings and wedding receptions and the staff are very friendly and helpful.
It was very clean and modern and the staff were very friendly No food in the evenings. There was no sound proofing in the room, when the people came into the room above it was like they were sat in the room with us
Friendly staff. Value for money Nothing to dislike
I wanted to experience a "Green" hotel. I was very impressed and felt well informed about their efforts to be as eco friendly as possible. The hotel has been restored beatifully, fabulous beds and great food.
the bed was nice as were the pillows,towls nice and thick would have liked more chose of food from menu at night,only the taster menu on offer which was over priced
It was overall an excellent stay. The room was simply lovely, the food was delicious and so was the wine on their list. The hotel is very stylish and offers a homly feeling right away when one enters. That I coundn't stay longer... ;-)
A luxurious room with a roll top bath in the window alcove, very attentive and friendly staff and excellent food in the restaurant, what more could you ask for. Plainer biscuits with the room service cheese !!! but thats all.
clenlyness Menu a bit limited
Room was very spacious Cost of food.
The pool and jacuzzi were excellent
The service was very good, with all the staffs available and ready when needed. the comfort was far above the price paid for. I would definitely recommend people to experience and i will definitely like to stay to the same hotel if i have to visit the city again.
I really enjoyed using the pool but I did not appreciate having to pay extra to use it. Paying for swimming pool facilities. Befro side lights not bright enough to read under !
Yes - no car parking space
The convenience of the heated swimming pool in Autumn, close to shops & beach for walking. The Bar menu appears to have been changed since my Grandson & I came down earlier this year and it is not a good or varied as it was.
Staff very efficient. Liesure facilities excellent. Room clean good value for money. Restaurant basic. Food basic. Menu basic. presentation of bar food basic. Bar food poor. Garden furniture plastic not inviting. Disabled room offered no window.
The twin room was a good size with adequate facilities. The price was raised up for the bank holiday.
Friendly staff, cheap, nice food .
Hyggelig betjening Hotellet er nedslitt og bør renoveres
Hotellet ligger nært både sentrm og strand. Bedre organisering av frokosten, det var sjelden klart. Det manglet flere ting, både på bordet og på buffeten. Hele hotellet trenger en grundig oppussing!
All facilities excellent including restaurantand service Could not gain access to balcony Directions to carparking not clear when booking
Great building, bar and restaurant area very well designed and relaxinb atmosphere Unfortunately we were allocated a room suitable for disabled guests which would have been great for a wheelchair user ( having holidayed this year with a friend in a wheelchair and realised how hard it is to find suitable accommodation - this is a real plus) however it meant that we only had a disabled shower in our room and no bath- which for non wheelchair users is a bit disappointing - we were not asked whether this would be OK which I was not happy about.
My son and I loved the layout, design of room, hotel, the sea views and accessiblity to Bournemouth center. The receptionist very helpful on arrival. Beds were rock hard and pillows to match. Having asked to be moved to a quiet room were given a lovely room but could hear baby crying in adjoining room through night. So both my son and I did not sleep well at all. No hangers for clothing and very little lighting for evening when dark.
Excellent staff, amazing spacious room, clean modern hotel.
Beautiful room with balcony, lovely restaurant, great ambience.
I liked the style of the hotel, different from other Premier Inn's The restaurant staff seemed inexperienced and there didn't appear to be a manager
Hotel Is Clean,rooms are really nice and a lot of space with great bathrooms.Beds are also comfortable. There's no room service available at the hotel and think they should review this some time in the future.Many people are awake late and want a snack or drink and the hotel doesint offer any.
We were given a lovely large room which had a seaview. The staff at the hotel reception were friendly and extremely helpful, giving us directions and information about the university which we were going to visit. We stayed in a twin room , the beds were rather hard and uncomfortable.
Very relaxing, fabulous breakfast, pleasant staff. Pity about the awful weather though!! Just opposite the Pavillion Theatre where we had tickets to see the Electric Light Orchestra trib band, brilliant!! Nothing negative springs to mind.
Balcony doors in our room were locked and this meant there was no escape route other than the main door.We asked at reception and were told that the balconys had not passed the safety inspection and therefore could not be used which we thought was a poor excuse and not complying with Health and Safety Regulations.
The receptionist was extremely friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was very good! Location excellent for accessing town centre. The room we were in was very small.
nice, clean hotel, good location
Good location, really friendly staff, clean hotel and loads of car park spaces! Decor was a bit old fashioned but wasn't too offensive!
A nice hotel for a layed back holiday. Would not be recommended to to people for lively nights out.
Value for money Difficulties with booking. Active hotels and Piccadally not aligned on certain issues as type of credit cards to be used etc. Gunnar
I realy do enjoyed staying at Hotel Piccadily. Staffs were very helpful and friendly!very confort room aswell!no fuss or anything it was great hotel!!!! Nothing
Clean and tidy. Friendly staff. Had to change room on arrival as it was far too small for a double and quite dark. Second room was better but still small and required updating.
Only stayed for one night
Clean, pleasant room; well located. A staff member entered our room in the morning while we were still asleep!
Lounge area Bathroom was tiny with cracked mirror and old bathroom carpet and sliding door. Bed was tiny and soft. Apparently it was a dancing hotel and music filtered up til 1.30 am. No breakfast was included in the price. Bedroom picture misleading.
Privacy, yet service on hand when required. Efficient booking system
pace and quaiet
Breakfast Decor - very dated and depressing
The food was excellent, particularly at dinner and the service very good relating to all needs. Shower was not the best I've used in a hotel.
it was good to be able to sleep in and not have to leave the room until 2pm, allthough this was at an extra cost. I found the night porter slighty upset that i dared to return after midnight and my companion did not return until the sun had risen again, one can omly wonder what sought of reception he recieved
Visited my daughter who is studing at Bournmouth University I would suggest that you visit he Hotel. We stayed in room 8 and it stunk of stale cigeratte smoke. The general state of the room was poor especially the carpets which were antique,stained and held ogether by tape.The bathroom would not have been out of place in a military barracks,altogether not a very pleasent stay. On the positive side that staff were friendly and helpful and the dining area was clean and tidy and the standard of food adaquate. This hotel reflected badley on you site and would make me nervous of using it again against a Premier Inn or Travelodge for example where you know what you get.. Hope this helps
Easy walking distance to Bournemouth centre. Breakfast choice was excellent with very good service. Our room had single glazed metal frame windows with no heating, at end September was cold overnight.
The staff were friendly and courteous, willing to help and give appropriate information regarding interesting places to visit. Ventilation was not working in the bathroom, bed was not comfortable, noise when you tried to turn---- Broken spring ?
The staff was nice and friendly and the room was clean, although a bit aged. The whole hotel is showing its age and could do with some brush ups here and there although it is generally kept in a nice, clean state.
Good location No - everything was fine
Closeness to town centre Did not see the staff after breakfast time if required assistance. The mattresses were in an extremely poor state with springs poking through - to the extent that we had to lie on top of the quilts for comfort! Cooked breakfast very dry and unexciting.
The location was ideal for walking to the sea front and the local shops and restaurants. The breakfast room was pleasant, well laid out and the excellent breakfast was served with both friendliness and politeness. The shower was noisy, severely lacking in power and felt claustrophobic. It had mould around the shower pan. The room needed decorating, and looked very sad. The room lacked character and the colour scheme was bland. The toilet didn't flush very strongly, and the taps on the wash basin were very old and loose. There was a damp mark on the settee in the room, covered up by an old sheet.
Close to the town centre To noisy
Very close to beach and nightlife Nice breakfast
Good food & friendly efficient staff
The location of the hotel is great short walk to shops and beach The hotel is extremely dated and is long over due a makeover.
nice clean room, good breakfast, fairly central location, easy to access to public transport, comfortable the room next door was a bit noisy at night, wireless signal stability could be further improved
The breakfast was good - proper bacon. It really is a short walk to the centre (although up hill to get back). Good communal lounge It's getting a bit old on the inside/ could do with better cleanliness in the rooms.
Helpful friendly staff springs coming throw the bed
Good basic accomodation, very clean, the only grumble I have is the showers were rubbish there was hardly any water pressure which made showering difficult. Good value for money which included breakfast which was lovely.
