A Country House In Town!

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 19, 2013

Although Orchard Hill pitches itself as a hotel it has a pleasant "Country House" feel to it. The Georgian building is elegant and the rooms and public areas are characterfully furnished and decorated.

The location, on a quiet side street about ten minutes walk from the town centre, makes it an ideal base for touring the area and is convenient too for catching the Oldenburg for Lundy - breakfast times can be brought forward if it's an early sailing and car parking is negotiable.

The owners are welcoming and friendly, as too is their dog, and breakfast is well worth getting up for.

Although I'd booked a single room I ended up with a spacious en-suite twin which was immaculately clean, the bed comfortable and should I have required it the workdesk looked suitable for its purpose - the free WiFi was spot-on too.

Unique Quality: Only being here for one night the hotel was more than suitable for my purposes and I should imagine it would be ideal for longer stays. My only minor gripe is that it seemed a long walk, all uphill, from the bus stop on Heywood Road - but all downhill back to the Quay in the morning.

Directions: If arriving by bus there's a bus stop on the corner. If arriving by car on the A39 Orchard Hill is the first main road to the left when heading into town from the roundabout.

Great location

Just a few minutes wak from the centre of town, Orchard Hill Hotel is in a great location on a hillside.

It's a small privately owned, family run hotel and is a good alternative to either a large chain hotel or bed & breakfast in a private home.

Rooms can be a little cramped so I suggest you book the much larger superior rooms, which are well worth the small extra cost.

Rooms and bathrooms are well equipped, the hotel is clean and well managed.

Reception doubles as a small bar, there's a very nice guest lounge area and the hotel has a fine restaurant.

Unique Quality: The big plus for the hotel is its location, an easy and pleasnt walk through winding narrow streets and Victoria Park on to the riverside road The Quay which leads to the town centre.

Directions: Near the long bridge, the A39 Bideford By-pass. Turn at the roundabout towards the town centre into Heywood Road. Orchard Hill is on the left.
