Good Smaller Beachfront HotelPosted Feb 17, 2015
Pros: We most like the grounds, pool, and beach.
Cons: Better beds and pillows.
Location: Swimming, beach activities, shopping, restaurants.
We recently stayed at the Blue Orchid Hotel for a couple of days. As others have noted, the hotel is attached to another hotel called Coral Reef. Both hotels are owned by a pair of brothers. The restaurant, grounds, amenities, and beachfront are shared by both hotels. The property is within easy walking distance to Champers, Bert's Bar, and the Accra Beach Hotel. We really liked the well manicured grounds, landscaping, and beach area. We found the hotel staff in all areas to be very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and functional. We found the bed to be somewhat firm and springy. The pillows are terrible. We ate at the restaurant a few times. The menu is limited, but the food was fine and reasonably priced. Overall, we found this Hotel to be of good value and would stay again.

Blue Orchid is a nice little gem in ChristChurchPosted Jan 12, 2015
Pros: Location, cleanliness, people. Kitchenette. Great beach and views.
Cons: Some of the appliances were getting a little dated and could be replaced.
Location: Plenty of good watering holes and restaurants nearby (within walking distance or a short bus / taxi ride). Also lots of beaches.
Stayed from Dec. 29/2014 to Jan 7/2015. The Blue Orchid is a quaint little (32 room) hotel right on the beach in Worthing, Christchurch. The back of the hotel is on a busy road, so there was some road noise if the windows on that side were open. The view from the third floor was spectacular. The location is fairly central with plenty of beach to walk going North. The hotel was in good repair and very clean. The staff were friendly, helpful, and courteous. The restaurant in the sister hotel next door had a limited menu but the food was very good. Many of the people I met there had been there before or were referred to there by friends. I look forward to visiting here again.

Old but in pretty good shape on BeachPosted Jan 11, 2015
Pros: The grounds were well kept; the beach was right there; the view was great.
Cons: They do a pretty good job with an old facility.
Location: The beach was the thing; we did not do much nearby except go to Champers.
Great view from our room which was a third floor walkup. Restaurant was fine for breakfast, but not much choice for dinner. Great restaurant, Champers, a short walk away. Beach was very accessible. Plenty of hot water and you could cook in the kitchen if you wanted--who wants to?

Hotel is a little old and dated. It was clean and comfortable but our room was a bit smaller than we anticipated.

Hotel de plagePosted Dec 13, 2014 on Hotels.com
Hotel attenant au Coral mist en bord de plage. Hotel propre. Personnel agréable. Nous avions une chambre face mer. Très bien, assez grande avec kitchen mais très très bruyante. En effet, la chambre donne face mer mais aussi a l'arrière de l'hôtel où il y a une rue très passagère. Il y a une petite persienne dans la chambre qui donne derrière et toute la nuit vous avez l'impression d'avoir des camions et voitures qui passent dans votre chambre. De plus, assez mauvaise insonorisation entre les chambres. Je vous déconseille de manger au restaurant de l'hôtel coral mist car vous ne paierez pas le même prix d'un jour sur l'autre et votre salade vous paraîtra ridicule un jour alors que la veille elle était superbe.

HavsutsiktPosted Nov 17, 2014 on Hotels.com
Hotellet hade ett perfekt läge precis bredvid stranden och vi hade havsutsikt från balkongen. Rummet var stort och hade kök. Ett minus var att det hela tiden var sand på golvet i badrummet, men läget uppvägde detta.

Well LocatedPosted Nov 16, 2014 on Hotels.com
This "hotel" appears to have originally been built as a condo development (not intended as a negative comment). Our unit was a downstairs unit with good kitchen facilities, a small living room, and a bedroom with bathroom off of it. A key feature was a nice outdoor terrace that gave us a great view of the ocean while also enjoying their nicely landscaped grounds. Unit itself was clean, comfortable and well equipped. A nice beach is right there and great for swimming/lounging. It is well located with restaurants, markets, and local transportation easily accessed. My wife and I had a 5-star experience in a 3-star facility and we would do it again without hesitation.
