Location is amazing it’s central to everything. The hotel is very run down tiles falling off the wall in the bathroom, white stains all over the carpet, broken lift, wifi was changed during our stay and we were advised. Pillows had hard lumps in them.

Dear Wotif, Thank you for your feedback, we at Blue Orchid Hotels are anxious to ensure that the highest standards of facilities and personal services are provided to our guests and your clients valued response assists us in our efforts to achieve this.

Nice hotel in a great location

Pros: The location is great and the room was reasonably priced.
Location: Great location, walking distance to Victoria Station and good shopping on Victoria Road.
We arrived late one afternoon and left before 10 the next day so our time there was short. However we experienced very good and friendly service from the staff and the room was comfortable and affordable for a night. We walked extensively in the area at night and early next morning and felt very safe. The location is superb.
