I just wanted to say a massive thank you for all your organisation for my sisters hen party weekend in Bath (and help from Paul when you were away). We all had an incredible weekend and everything went smoothly. I will recommend the company to friends.
Laura K, Bath, December 2015
Good evening Ashley and Emma,
I just wanted to thank you both for the fabulous experience I had in Bath for my 40th birthday celebrations.
• The organisation was fantastic, Ashley you were so helpful and efficient.
• The hotel was very busy but they didn’t stop them from treating us really well and was just a thoroughly relaxing experience there.
• Katie our dance teacher was brilliant we had such a laugh and really enjoyed the time reminiscing to the 80s music!
• Browns was a good venue for atmosphere and being a big group but the meal was awful (I know it was my choice and not one of your venues anyway). Although we had pre ordered we didn’t eat mains till 10pm and steaks were cold. We did complain and to be the manager was really kind and didn’t charge for drinks as he was short staffed.
• Circo was really good, great table held for us and managed to stay out till near closing!!
Hopefully feedback helps and once again thank you so much for everything and would definitely recommend to others and use you again.
Sarah J, Bath, November 2015
Thank you so much for all your help organising Sarah’s hen party. We had an absolute blast!
Lauren W, London, November 2015 – Via our Facebook page
I’m just about able to email! What a weekend! Amazing from start to finish. Cheerleading was the best fun ever. Ali our instructor was brilliant and we loved it so much there’s talk of making it an annual girly event. Cocktail making was fantastic. Our instructor was not only amazingly handsome but hilarious too. Loved how he kept everyone together as a group and has us in stitches all evening. Truly the best weekend ever!!! Thanks for all your help with all the changes and organising. Will definitely be recommending you!!
Shirley T, London, October 2015
Just to say thank you for all that you planned for our weekend in Bristol. We all had a great time, and it all went very smoothly. The make-over / high-tea / photo-shoot combo was great and the location was fantastic! If you could re-send me the link to do the review I will happily do that this week.
I await the professional photos …. will the photographer send these to me directly?
I will certainly contact you if I ever have the honour of planning someone else’s hen do!
Kirsty E, Bristol, August 2015
We had an absolutely fantastic weekend away in Brighton.
It was helped by the weather being so nice.
The hotel was very good and very accommodating, the food and level of service was superb.
We all had rooms overlooking the Marina and they were very good though some did not have air conditioning and were a little hot.
All the activities went according to plan and the Beyonce dancing was amazing fun and all of us have not laughed so much in such along time. The teacher was very good, fun and patient!
So thank you very much for all your planning and arranging such a superb weekend.
Sarah P, Brighton, August 2015
Thank you so much for organising us such a fantastic weekend . All the girls had a great time !
The treasure hunt added something a little different to the party & we particularly enjoyed the photo challenges for extra points.
The Grace bar was a perfect venue – good food which arrived promptly – atmosphere & everything as it should have been
Carrie W, London, August 2015
I just want to say thank you, the whole group had an absolutely fantastic weekend. Everything went really well and we were amazed at how much we got for our money.
The one thing to make it better would to give more time for the cocktail making as we were given a big platter of food 30 minutes before we had to be at the night club. Other than having to eat quickly it was brilliant.
Thank you for putting it all together for us, you’ve been a great help. I will definitely recommend you; two of the girls are actually getting married next year so I will pass on your details.
Emilie C, Cardiff, May 2015
Just wanted to say thank you for all your help organising the hen do.
Everyone who went loved all aspects of it.
Ian who ran the wine tasting was fun and informative. He also answered all our questions regarding wine no matter how simple. The time flew by!
The hotel was fabulous. Having the separate room for dinner was brilliant as we could play some more risqué games. The staff there were very helpful and sorted out some music for the room for us as well.
The hotel itself was fantastic. The location was excellent and the rooms well equipped and comfortable. The food was delicious and everyone loved the pool.
Claire (bride 2 be) really enjoyed it and said it was a fab send off.
Joanna D, Exeter, May 2015
I just wanted to say Thank you so much for what was an amazing weekend.
everything went perfect from start to finish, the hotel was beautiful and the hotel staff were lovely
I will definitely be recommending Orchid city and spa
Thank you once again
Emma S, Leeds, May 2015
Hi Ashley can I just say a huge thank you for a brilliant weekend. It was so well organised and we all enjoyed every minute of it. I would recommend the entire package to any girly party ! Once again thanks for the well organised brilliant weekend. The hen loved it.
Marie M, Cheltenham, May 2015
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for helping me to organise such a fab hen do for my sister last weekend it was such a great weekend. The hotel was perfect and so central for everything along South Bank.
Emily S, London, May 2015
Thank you for organising our great weekend!
We had loads of fun and enjoyed all the activities!!
Claire the Burlesque Dance instructor suggested I email you as we wanted to get the list of the music she thought us how to dance to.
Can you please forward it to me?
Joanna K, Bristol, May 2015
Just an email to let you know that we all had a fab time on the hen weekend a couple of weeks ago – everything went really smoothly and the bride to be loved it. It was a real comfort to have your assistance with planning and booking – definitely the most relaxing hen do planning I’ve ever had to do!
I wanted to ask you if you could contact the music video organizer to get an update on when the video might be ready? They said we could send through some photos to add to the video and maybe some text but I didn’t get the contact details on the day. Is this something you’d be able to help me with?
Thanks again Ashley,
Gemma G, Bath May 2015
Just a quick note to say thank you for all your organising , the weekend was great and the girls had a fab time . All the activities went to plan and the Hotel were so accommodating and great to deal with. I would definitely recommend orchid city in the future. Many thanks.
Jayne R, London, April 2015
Just wanted to say what a fantastic weekend we all had, everything was brilliant, the hotel was great and wonderful staff. Perfect location. If I could mention a couple of things, the nightclub, the youngest found the clientele to be a little mature !! and no photographer at the cocktail making, but everything else perfect. I will definitely be recommending you, Thank you for a weekend my daughter won’t forget.
Karen A, Bath, April 2015
Just wanted to say a big thank you to you for helping to organise my friends hen do. We all had a brilliant time and it ran very smoothly! Thanks again X
Kate Y, Leeds, April 2015
Just emailing to say a massive thank you to Orchid City and Spa for such a great weekend. The service from the hotel staff and the staff at Aqua were amazing and everything had been so well organised. My sister loved it and we had a fabulous time!
Thank you for your brilliant service and for making it so easy to organise – I shall definitely be recommending you!
All the best,
Natalie B, Bath, April 2015
Wow! What a fantastic Hen do, all because of a fantastic company -Orchid City and Spa! They really did make every single thing easy to organise, as they did most of the chasing! I would thoroughly recommend them to ANYONE needing support and advise with organising a Hen Do! I organised a London based hen do for my sister and she said it was the “best 24 hours of her life!” I couldn’t therefore be any more chuffed with that response! Ashley Baker in particular was extremely good at communicating and answering those questions that seem silly! I felt very at ease with the whole weekend and the service really was 5* everywhere we went. I defiantly felt like VIP! Thanks a lot!
Tess M, London, April 2015
I just wanted to say thank you for helping to arrange such a fab hen night in London with me. Louise Lou-Lu Cakes Martin loved get hen weekend. The hotel was great. The cocktail glass at Verve was brilliant. The guys there were so much fun and we all loved it. Grace was a great venue for dinner. We had a brilliant waitress who couldn’t have done more for us. And then we ended the night in the club. Thanks so much. Would highly recommend your services. Thank you Ashley.
Anna G, London, March 2015 – Via our Facebook Page
We had a fabulous time on my hen do, I loved the hotel so much I was wondering if you do any packages for couples? Me and my other half would love a night away after our wedding and I would love to go back there.
Hope to hear from you soon,
Hayley C, London, March 2015
Just want to say a huge thank you for organising our booking the weekend was fabulous and would recommend you and all the other companies we dealt with it all went so smooth without any problems.
Just wanted to check on how we receive photographs from the vintage photo shoot ?
Jo B, Bristol, March 2015
Just wanted to thank you for all your help organising my sister’s hen weekend. Everything went really well, the dance class and Murder Mystery were brilliant. The people were all lovely and accommodating and they made everyone feel at ease. With these kinds of activities it really needs the teachers to be warm and engaging, which they certainly were. I don’t know the last time we have laughed so much as this weekend.
It all really exceeded our expectations. We would definitely recommend the Milk Thistle as well, it was the perfect venue for the Murder Mystery as it had such character and provided a real atmosphere plus the food was outstanding.
Everyone had a great time, including the hen, and I don’t think it could have actually gone any better.
Thank you for helping to make my sister’s hen party a weekend to remember
Jennifer R, Bristol, March 2015
Apologies for the delay in getting back to you with feedback, I was away all last week with work and again this week.
I just wanted to say that Meg and the rest of us had a lovely time in Bath, everything and more that Meg wanted for her hen weekend. We all really loved The Abbey Hotel, the décor the staff, the cocktails and the décor were all fab and we all said we would use again.
The cocktail master class was great fun, although we opted not to stay there for further cocktails as compared to the rest of the clientele at Central Bar we felt positively ancient!
We went to the Thermae Spa on the Sunday morning, which was a lovely way to revive ourselves after the night before and a much improved experience for me with all the facilities available.
Thank you to Orchid for your help with organizing Meg’s weekend, I hope to use you again in future and I would certainly recommend you to friends.
Zara O, Bath, Feb 2015
Nice speaking with you yesterday. Really just to thank you again for all your help with our hen weekend arrangements you provided an excellent service and really nothing was to much for you thank you.
Well the hotel was amazing and we will most definatly will be returning and recommending the hotel and orchid to others.
The staff were all fantastic and so cheerful and helpful once again nothing was too much for them. We took advantage of the spa facilities on our last day and we didn’t want to leave.
The grounds of the hotel were stunning.
Our burlesque class left us all in brilliant spirits it was hilarious and both the teacher and photographer were professional but very warming and felt like part of our group,can’t wait to see the disc.
The central bar location was perfect and the staff could not do enough for us so hats off to them also and a big thank you. They put in a big effort into our private room and also our Buffett was delicious.
I certainly won’t be giving any negative feed back as we all had a lovely weekend.
So once again ashley from my daughter and all who went a massive thanks to all who made it a weekend to remember.
Kris D, Bath, Feb 2015
I am just e-mailing to thank you so much for organising the weekend with me. We all had an absolutely amazing time and Carly loved absolutely every minute of it!
Everything ran smoothly and everyone was kept entertained. The cocktail class at revolution was amazing and we would definitely recommend this company again, in addition to using the company again ourselves!
The Mercure Holland House Hotel was absolutely lovely and the staff looked after us so much as well as the facilities, rooms and breakfast being lovely.
Once again thank you ever so much.
Simone D, Cardiff, Feb 2015
I hope you are well.
Just wanted to send a quick email to say what a fantastic time we had this weekend!
We had a brilliant weekend, and everyone commented on how great the package itinerary, facilities, and value for money was!
Everything ran so smoothly, and we were all very impressed with the service at the hotel, Grace and Tiger Tiger.
The private dining room really made it, it was all so classy – Very happy indeed!
Thank you so much for helping to organise my hen weekend, it was perfect!
I will definitely recommend your company to friends/family for future events
Thank you again
Stacey G, London, Feb 2015
I would just like to thank you for all of your help to sort out my sisters hen weekend. We all had the most amazing time and have created some brilliant memories together. The afternoon tea and cocktail making class were great and added that touch of class to the weekend, before we hit the town! The spa on the Sunday was the perfect way to end everything before we got picked up too. The hotel staff were brilliant and always more than happy to assist us with booking taxi’s etc. All of the guests commented on what a great time they had had, and how well the activities flowed and could not have asked for anything better. And it goes without saying the Bride-to-be had a fabulous time, it was all a surprise for her, and she said that we couldn’t have arranged anything better 🙂
Thanks again for everything,
Katie A, Exeter, Feb 2015
We had a really good weekend thank you. Highly recommend the cocktail place, it was by far the best one I’ve been too.
Stacey F, Cheltenham, Feb 2015
Just wanted to let you know that the hen weekend was wonderful! Everything went ahead without any problems! The hotel was fantastic upon arrival we were informed that we had all been upgraded to executive rooms which were lovely, the hotel were very accommodating and when we were told that one room wasn’t quite ready for check it was quickly resolved and a further room upgrade was given! The tea at the hotel was exceptional and although I only informed them of dietary requirements at 9.30am on the morning of the tea they went above and beyond to meet them! The cocktail class was so much fun, Alex our barman at tiger tiger made the class both fun and interesting with no lapses of boredom at any point and everyone said they would like to do it again! The dinner was also lovely, prompt service and tasty meals! The bride to be was extremely happy and overwhelmed by the weekend!
Thank you for your support and guidance during a very stressful time! It was worth every penny! I have recommended your company to many of my friends and I will be using your services for any further girlie weekends!
Thank you again!
Becky M, London, Feb 2015
Had to email to say what a brilliant weekend we have all had. Hotel was excellent, the dance was great fun and the restaurant lovely. Everyone had a fab time especially the hen. Thank you for everything.
Mary G, London, Jan 2015
Thank you for finalising our weekend. We had a fabulous time and Jenna our Bride to be absolutely loved every minute!
Victoria Beckham was kind enough to pop into Pineapple studios while we were there! ( taking her little boy dancing)!
The Showboat is amazing. The youngsters all ended up in Dirty Martinis and had a great time.
Hotel was excellent too.
Gaynor S, London, Jan 2015
Just a belated thank you for an organising an amazing weekend.
I do however need your help for another but only for 4 people ideally in an apartment/cottage and we will then choose some activities to include.
Zoe W, Bath, November 2014
Thank you so so much for putting together our wonderful package for Lauren’s Hen Weekend. It all worked very well and we had a great time.
The hotel staff were helpful and ready to support with luggage, taxis etc. The only thing I would do differently would be to have a space ready for us to congregate for coffee on arrival at 11.30-12 ish – but I didn’t think about it! The lounge area was popular and places reserved but we managed ok! We had arranged a room for breakfast altogether and that was just wonderful!
Lovely meal at Aqua Italia with good food and service. We were grateful to be able to use the extra meals on the drinks bill!
The spa was also great and it worked well having the individual vouchers as those who couldn’t make it can use there’s another time or have gifted them to Lauren. We weren’t actually booked in as an advance booking but it didn’t matter as the queues were sensible on a Sunday morning!
And finally the Afternoon Tea was just sublime! Beautful library room at The Porter (thanks for the recommendation) and we were really spoiled with a beautiful spread.
Thank you so much for your support and attentiveness throughout the process – it’s really taken away from the potential stress of organising and allowed me to focus on party bags, name badges and other fun things!
With very best wishes and thanks,
Emma N, Bath, November 2014
The weekend ran like clockwork. Thanks so much for your help! I had no negative feedback from the ladies.
I will definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for a similar package.
Katie S, Bath, September 2014
Hope you are well.
Just a quick e-mail to thank you for helping me to organise a hen weekend 🙂 We had a great time, everybody enjoyed punting, and treasure hunt gave us opportunity to see and learn more about Bath.
The hotel was spot on, beautiful location, though had few small issues with a room,etc., but nothing to do with you. You ptovided excellent service and i will concider using your services again if organising anything in a future.
Ala K, Bath, August 2014
We are back from a brilliant hen weekend, thank you so much for all your assistance. The hotel was lovely, cocktail making at The Milk Thistle was fantastic, the cocktails were so so good!! Our meal at Browns and entry to Pryzm were both great too.
I would recommend Orchid City & Spa to anyone. Thank you again.
Emily F, Bristol, August 2014
We had the best weekend, the hotel was lovely & Franki’s room upgrade to the suite was just perfect!
The West Country Games was a hit with the group, we all got very competitive but had such a good laugh plus we were extremely lucky with the weather considering it was raining before we went – we ended up in a hot sunny field having a great time!
The butler John – AKA ‘Magnum Chopper’ – was also fantastic! Franki’s face was an absolute picture when she found him hidden behind the door! (She screamed & ran across the room!)
I want to thank you so much for your help with everything – making the booking & payment process so easy, (kindly accommodating a late payer!) to your helpful emails answering any questions we had so quickly & making the whole thing seem like a breeze! 🙂
Thanks so much,
Lucy W, Bristol, August 2014
Absolutely fantastic weekend had by all. Hotel was lovely, all venues brilliant. Great value for money! Thank you.
Sarah F, Leeds, August 2014
I just wanted to thank you for our amazing weekend – it all went so smoothly and everyone has such a fantastic time! We were all really impressed with every aspect of the weekend and the bride to be was such a happy lady, all thanks to you and your brilliant organisation! I will definitely be recommending Orchid City and Spa in the future to others planning special weekend away. Thank you!
Laura R, Cardiff, July 2014
Hi Ashley and thank you very much for helping our past few days away in Bath such a success! We had a great time.
The hotel was just what we were after and the staff were all really helpful, especially when one of our group, who is 8 months pregnant, was offered her own double room when she checked-in.
Everything else was just as expected; the spa was great and our meal at Brasserie Blanc was really good last night.
We all plan to return again to The Halcyon and Bath. Thank you again for organising everything for us!
With best wishes,
Hannah M, Bristol, July 2014
I just wanted to thank you for all your help in organising the hen weekend. We all had such an amazing time start to finish!
The restaurants were brilliant, the dance instructor amazing and the cocktail making class was the highlight for the hen..
Really pleased with hotel, the staff were ever so accommodating and the girls in the spa were some of the loveliest girls I’ve met..
Thank you again!
Niroppa S, Bristol, July 2014
Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for the most amazing hen party!
From start to finish it was just perfect and all 15 of us had the most incredible time – one weekend we won’t be forgetting in a long time!
The hotel was exceptional – perfect location, HUGE bedrooms and the breakfast was one of the best we have ever had!
From start to finish we couldn’t have asked for more.
Thank you for arranging the mini bus to take us and pick us up from Bath Spa – everything ran so smoothly and everyone was so friendly and couldn’t do more to help!
Bath Spa was beautiful and so relaxing!
I highly recommend booking treatments so you can queue jump as it was very busy when we arrived.
Fortunately as a few of us had booked treatments the receptionist allowed us to stay as a group and all go in together :).
But the highlight of the weekend has to be the cocktail making class. Our bar man Dave was AMAZING!!!!!
We were a group of mixed ages and he got everyone involved and made sure everyone had fun.
Thank you so much for helping arrange the perfect weekend for us, I will certainly be recommending Orchid City & Spa (in fact I already have).
Katie W, Bath/Bristol, July 2014
I hope you are well.
Edinburgh was fabulous – we couldn’t have picked a better week end as the weather was great. The hotel was just what we wanted and all the ladies are very pleased with the facilities and the location. The Living Room and the bus tour were fantastic. Couldn’t fault a thing!
Many thanks for all your help and expert organisation – it was a truly memorable trip for all involved including Victoria, the bride to be.
Louisa L, Edinburgh, July 2014
Hi Ashley, just a quick mail to say a big thank you for what was truly an amazing weekend. There was no fault with venues, accommodation, staff, organising etc. The bride to be was truly pleased with everything.
Big thank you again for your patience, professionalism and hard work.
Lena N, Leeds, June 2014
Just a quick email to thank you for your help in arranging our hen weekend.
The bride-to-be had a fabulous time, as we all did.
Shelia W, Bristol, June 2014
Just wanted to let you know that the weekend was really good. Everyone really enjoyed themselves. The cocktail class was great and Une Keraite, the lady who showed us how to make cocktails was very good, included everyone and made the experience very enjoyable. The hotel was perfect.
Thanks for your help in booking this and I would recommend you to other people.
With kind regards
Becky M, London, May 2014
Just a few lines to say thank you for organising a fantistic weekend, the Butler in the Buff was really lovely, well spoken nice mannerism in every way could not have wished for anyone better, ticked all the boxes. I know where to come if I have to organise a party again.
Sylvia O, Exeter, May 2014
I just wanted to convey our thanks for all your assistance in the booking of our hen party.
The package you provided was not only great value but we couldn’t fault it!
The hotel was lovely, the suite was a luxurious treat and a great room to entertain the entire group! Also the staff couldn’t do enough for us 🙂 The cruise was also great – we had the boat to ourselves and with the option of hooking up our ipod it meant we could enjoy the views along the river with our favourite tunes, we also had great fun at Pryzm!.
Please feel free to pass on my comments to the parties involved, and would like to thank everyone involved in making my best friends hen-do not only luxurious but lots of fun! We will recommend Orchid City & Spa to anyone that will listen! x
Claire B, Bristol, April 2014
Thanks for all your help with the weekend. We had a great time and everything ran very smoothly. The hotel was lovely and the restaurant treated us very well.
Thanks again and best wishes.
Carlie W, Bath, May 2014
I just wanted to give you some feedback regarding a Hen weekend that I had booked with Orchid for my Sister, to commence the first weekend of April.
I am so impressed with the service I have been given by Ashley and Paul. Right from the initial enquiry, to the booking process and the planning of events, I was impressed of how friendly, professional, informative and helpful they both were. I had originally enquired and booked the weekend with Paul however Paul then handed over to Ashley. I found it very warming when Paul introduced Ashley to me to hand the booking over, and that Ashley had taken the time to introduce herself to me. Both Ashley and Paul always ensured they responded to my emails/calls asap, and kept me in the loop with everything. I couldn’t have asked for more!
The weekend was amazing! The hotel was lovely, the suite was a nice surprise for the hen! The Butler was very scrum my (and Irish, the girls were very happy!), and I have to say the Cocktail Class @ Revs was better than expected – the guy who took our class was bloody fantastic and would appreciate if you could pass on my thanks to him! The only thing that was a bit disappointing was the arrival at Tiger Tiger in the evening. They couldn’t find us on the guest list, and said they had never heard of Orchid which was a bit disappointing but it didn’t ruin the night one bit! I don’t believe this was any fault of Orchid as Ashley re-assured me she had doubled checked everything before we went.
I can honestly say, booking through Orchid gave me peace of mind to ensure I gave my sister the best hen weekend she could have asked for!
Thank you Ashley and Paul, what a fantastic service you have both given to me and for helping me plan a great hen weekend! Well worth the money (in fact, most girls this weekend thought it was too cheap!)
I will and have already recommended you to friends, as I cannot sing your praises enough!
Lauren M, Cardiff, April 2014
Just thought I’d send some feedback from the hen do….
What a weekend!! It was absolutely amazing and my sister (the bride to be) loved it all, especially the butler! Everything went very smoothly and was well organised, the burlesque dance teacher was fab and the cocktails we made were delicious!
The hotel was nice, the breakfast was great and we got rooms quite near each other all on the same floor which was good. We didn’t spend much time in the spa as it was just the pool, and they were having swimming lessons at the time when we were free! But was still nice after a night out!
Thank you so much for organising it all, as I said it was an amazing weekend! I just wish we could do it all again!
Hannah D, Bristol, April 2014
Hope you both had a good weekend.
I cannot thank you both enough for helping to organise Kim’s hen weekend – it was amazing.
The hotel was lovely and staff were very attentive and friendly. The rooms were great and perfect for what we needed. The upgraded room was super as we all congregated in there on Friday evening and there was plenty of room for us all.
We visited Crockadoodledo on Saturday morning which was really good fun and an activity everyone loved. The staff there are great and made the morning really fun. A saviour really as when I told the girls we were going – I got a ‘we are painting teapots’ response with raised eyebrows but it wasn’t like this and ended up being great as there was also a little girls birthday party in there so we all joined in with happy birthday and they loved it that there were older girls there too.
We then did a bit of shopping in Southgate which is ideal as all of the shops are close together and as girls love shopping, this went down a treat 🙂
After showers and changing we headed to the cocktail clinic with our host David – one word INCREDIBLE. Wow, this was the best part of the hen weekend, the girls had a ball, Kim got a bit drunk and everyone had a great time. Definitely one to recommend.
The Panasia was a good location as they put us downstairs in a private dining area which meant we could all have a good laugh without disturbing guests that were eating upstairs.
The Porter was exceptional, the food and staff were just brilliant. A few bottles of bubbly were consumed so the girls were now on their way to a good night (and a headache on Sunday :-))
The Circo was good, the steps down to it are a hazard especially in heels but once we got there, the staff were great. We arrived at 10 and were shown straight to our comfy sofa which was appreciated as heels and walking don’t mix 🙂
The drinks were brought over and everyone had a good time – the music wasn’t great but I think it may be because we were there early in terms of the music getting going.
We didn’t stay long as I needed to try to get everyone back to their rooms to sleep as the Spa was an early start on Sunday.
After successfully getting everyone back up to their rooms in one piece and back down again in time for breakfast, breakfast was very much appreciated on Sunday morning to soak up the alcohol. Also due to the water issue on Saturday, we were offered complimentary full english – perfect to soak up the alcohol 🙂
The Spa was amazing and perfect for our Sunday morning relaxation – a great idea to book in as the queue even at 9am was around the corner – it was nice to take the VIP entrance in and go straight up to the Spa 🙂
We then pottered about in Bath for an hour after the Spa and headed home.
A truly amazing weekend and I couldn’t have done it without you both so thank you very much – I will definitely be recommending you and will use you again if I get asked to organise another hen weekend….which I think won’t be too far away as all of the girls were so impressed, they all want me to arrange their hen weekends 🙂
If you want me to write a testimonial for your website – I would be more than happy to or you can pick bits from this if you like.
Thank you again
Hayley A, Bath, March 2014
We have arrived back from the hen party in one piece :-), the weekend was absolutely brilliant and I, the hens and bride to be cannot thank u enough. From the moment we arrived to the time we had to leave was spot on.
I will defiantly be recommending u guys to everyone.
Thank you once again.
Jo A, London, March 2014
I wanted to write and thank you so much for organising a fantastic weekend for us. Everything ran very smoothly, and the girls all thoroughly enjoyed themselves, in particular Jaclyn. I must say we all thought it was a very good deal for the price, and the hotel was excellent with the suite on the top floor, with great views over glorious Bristol!
I look forward to passing on your details to other party organisers in the future.
With best wishes
Jo W, Bristol, March 2014
I just wanted to email before I forget… We all had a lovely weekend!! Everything went to plan- the hotel was very very nice and everyone really enjoyed themselves. 10*.
Thank you so very much for everything
Melissa 🙂 xx
Melissa C, Leeds, February 2014
The weekend was fab thank you! The cocktail making was great fun and the guys at Smokestack were good fun. The butler was fab and poured our drinks and joined in with the quiz! It was all great and well worth the money. Thanks for your help 🙂
Kathryn G, Leeds, February 2014
I have just returned to work after the weekend! Thank you for organising it, we had an absolutely brilliant time. The dancing was fantastic as was the cocktail making. The hotel was super and we were all very impressed with the twin rooms.
Carolyn H, Bristol, February 2014
Just a quick e-mail to say a big THANK YOU to you and Paul for all your help sorting the Hen Weekend!
We all had such a great time. Everything went to plan and the Bride to Be was very happy!!
The shoe design class was very good- and Nicky Rox was fantastic!
The same goes for the cocktail making class 😉
Dinner at the Living Room was great too.
Thank you again,
Keep up the good work!
Jess D, Bristol, February 2014
The weekend was fab thank you! The cocktail making was great fun and the guys at Smokestack were good fun. The butler was fab and poured our drinks and joined in with the quiz! It was all great and well worth the money. Thanks for your help 🙂
Kathryn G, Leeds, February 2014
I just wanted to thank you for all your help with organising my weekend in Bristol and the spa visit to Bath we all had a fabulous time.
Many thanks again
Michala M, Bath/Bristol, December 2013
I just wanted to say a massive thank you for organising our weekend, we has the most amazing time!!!! The hotel was fantastic, the dance lesson (everyone’s favourite part) was just perfect. The dance teacher was friendly and bubbly – despite us being late due to The Lord Mayors parade, the butler was gorgeous and we had an absolute scream.
The bar and food were also very good, the only thing I would like to point out is that the door staff were very rude/unhelpful – we weren’t sure which door to go into – they didnt want to help us!
… And it would be very useful if you included directions from tube/train stations in your literature … We got a bit lost – twice! The concierge were amazing and walked us to the tube station and arranged taxis.
Penelope (dance instructor) said she would send us the music so that we could recreate the moment at the wedding, would you be able to arrange that for me please?
Once again, thank you for all your help – I know we haven’t been the easiest of customers!!! I will be sure to contact you again for my 30th next year!
Sarah P, London, November 2013
I just wanted to say a massive thank you for all of your help and patience over the past 3 months.
All of the suppliers that you used and venues you recommended were perfect and the feedback from Lisa was that her weekend literally couldn’t have been any better.
If you wish to use me as a reference I would be more than happy to help.
Many thanks again!
Nick F, Bath/Bristol, October 2013
Just wanted to feed back to you that we all had a brilliant weekend!… Everything was perfect… Thank you sooooo much.
Emma R, London, October 2013
Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you so much for organising the hen weekend in Bristol last weekend. Everytthing was absolutely perfect and we had a great time, especially with the burlesque dance lesson!
Will highly recommend you 🙂
Cara O, Bristol, October 2013
I just wanted to say a massive thank you for helping me organise my sister’s hen weekend in Bath! It really was perfect and she was so happy 🙂
We were especially impressed with the Porter, the whole venue and all it’s staff were fantastic and our private dining room was amazing. In fact the staff at the hotel and at all the venues were fantastic and made for an even better experience. Everyone also loved the hotel.
Thanks for all your advice and guidance it made my life a lot easier so if I get tasked with organising my older sister’s 40th next year you will be hearing from me!!
All the best
Alice F, Bath, October 2013
Just wanted to say thank you so much for organising our hen do! Everyone loved it and it all went to plan.
Claire W, Cardiff, September 2013
I wanted to say thank you so much for arranging this weekend. It was wonderful and all worked to plan.
The girls loved the cocktail tasting and the suite! We saw some balloons when we were leaving the cocktail master class. We spent the rest of the night inebriated and therefore, wouldn’t have noticed past that point!
The traffic was absolutely terrible because of it! Everyone was late arriving at the hotel because of the traffic!
I will definitely keep you in mind and will recommend you for our next hen do!
Thank you very much for your patience and assistance.
Lauren G, Bristol, August 2013
I Just wanted to let you know that we had a great weekend & everybody who came really enjoyed it.
Thanks for helping with the organising. Im sure we will be in tough again when the next girls weekend is due!
Claire G, Bristol, August 2013
We had a fabulous weekend- thank you very much. We were very impressed by the hotel and its location- the breakfast was one of the best we’ve ever had! The evening meal at the Living Room was great- a lovely place to eat and drink cocktails all night. As it was also the regatta weekend- Bristol itself was buzzing and had a great atmosphere in the sun. Loads of market stalls to peruse at leisure and the shopping centre itself was a great shopping experience. The boat ride Saturday night was lovely- despite the rain we had all afternoon and evening! (Damn English weather!) There were even fireworks on Saturday night to top of the evening before going into Oceania and dancing the night away.
Everyone had a fantastic weekend, thank you very much for making it easy to organise and creating a package that suited what we wanted.
Robyn E, Bristol, July 2013
I just wanted to thank you for helping with the organising of the hen weekend. Everything went well, especially the private room we had for dinner on Friday night at Grace Bar – it was lovely. We even managed to sort out the problem of the person who had to work so nothing was lost.
Again, many thanks for all your help – the hen was very happy – especially the swimming pool in the hotel and the lovely roof terrace!
Ann-Marie S, London, July 2013
We had a really lovely weekend thank you.
The hotel was great, although super busy.
Milk Thistle were brilliant although they had us down for 7.30 so were a bit flustered when we arrived at 7pm as confirmed with you.
The food was amazing though and everyone loved the venue.
Many thanks for all your help,
Jemma S, Bristol, July 2013
Just wanted to say that we had an amazing time in Bath. The hotel and the staff there were great and very helpful. Both activities were very enjoyable and we thought Claire the dance teach was wonderful.
Thanks for all your organisation and prompt response.
Kate F, Bath July 2013
Just wanted to say a big Thank you for all of your help in arranging & booking my hen weekend. Everyone had such a fantastic time & everything was really good. Everyone said how organised it all was & good value for money.
Thank you so much. Luan
Luan C, Bristol, July 2013
We had an excellent weekend, everthing went perfectly. It actually worked out better that we had to wait for the table as they gave us plenty of free booze and bread/olives. The service at Queens and Hotel Du Vin was excellent. The dance class was hilarious- we all loved it and our butler in the buff was a charming young man who was not intimated by a group of tipsy women at all!
We had an excellent time, it was worth every penny. Thank you so much for organising a brilliant weekend for us.
Hazel B, Cheltenham, June 2013
I just wanted to drop you a line to tell you how fantastic my hen weekend was! The hotel was lovely, the meals were lovely, the cocktail making was amazing and the birdcage was too! Everyone who came had such a good time! Your service made the whole process completely stress free too ….. I just said what I wanted to do and it was all booked when we arrived!
Thank you so much!
I would definitely recommend your services!
Many thanks again, Olivia.
Olivia C, Manchester, June 2013
I booked a hen weekend via orchid city and spa which included cocktail making, 5* hotel, ice bar, meal, club and afternoon tea, and every aspect was perfect. The cocktail making at jewel bar was great fun and unlike other venues we made/had at least 5 or 6 each plus sharing platters. The hotel was great and the afternoon tea at the hotel (grange holborn) was very luxurious, including champagne and strawberry and so many cakes that we couldn’t finish them!
Orchid city and spa did a great job and I would definitely use again and highly recommend And thanks to Paul Southgate for all your help.
Teresa H, London, June 2013
Just wanted to say we had a great weekend! Thanks for your help organising everything.
The hotel was lovely, treasure hunt was great fun, private dining room was BRILLIANT…. although turns out we aren’t so great at punting!
Kim I, Bath, June 2013
I just wanted to write and say thank you very much for organising the past weekend for us. We have all had a great time and found it all ran very smoothly. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful – they upgraded one room to a larger one so that we could all gather for drinks in the room before heading to dinner. The spa treatments all ran very smoothly too. The hotel itself was good and in a great location. Dinner at the living rooms was tasty, and there was live music too.
Jo L, Bristol, June 2013
I just wanted to e-mail you to say THANK YOU for helping me organise my Hen Weekend in Bath
We had a FANTASTIC time in Bath and it all went to plan.
The Bath hotel was great !
We had great seats at the Komedia !
The 10% discount on treatments in the hotel was great and we had no problems obtaining the discount !
We enjoyed a lovely meal in Aqua Italia and the weather was great for the Thermae Bath Spa !
I will certainly recommend Orchid Spa to anybody else that is looking for their Hen weekend.
Once again, thanks
Emma M, Bath, May 2013
The weekend was amazing. Everyone enjoyed it. Thank you ever so much.
We didn’t get to hovercraft, as the hovercrafts were broken so we went on the quad bikes instead. The guys in the quad field were brilliant too.
The cocktail lesson was fantastic. Loved the fact it was a private room. We did suggest they made more so people could try them. Some people were waiting for a drink due to there being 14 of us.
The hotel was lovely. The ladies were very impressed. It was a shame we were spread out.
The rain was only in the morning, then the sun shone. I even burnt my nose!!
Thanks again for all your planning.
Laura S, Bristol, May 2013
Thankyou so much for organising our Cheltenham hen do, everything went to plan and was thoroughly enjoyed!
Stacey C, Cheltenham, May 2013
Just wanted to say thankyou for all your help with the hen weekend we had a great time… great hotel , great location.
Will keep you in mind for future events.
Thanks again for all your help arranging everything.
Amy C, Bristol, May 2013
We had an absolutely fantastic weekend!
Lucy was over the moon with the hotel, Cosy Club etc – I want to personally say a huge thank you for everything you have done to help me arrange her hen do. I will be recommending Orchid to all of my bride-to-be friends.
Hannah M, Bath, April 2013
Sorry its been ages but as im sure your aware things are all go with the wedding now that both of our doo’s are over.
I just wanted to say how amazing my weekend was and thank you for the time and effort you and your company went to, to ensure that my request were met.
Just a few special thank you’s if you can pass them on for me,
David in the hotel on reception
Claire at the dance studio
Adam at the living room restaurant
Michelle H, Bristol, April 2013
Sorry it has taken me a week to email!
Just wanted to give some feedback from last weekend, and the hen do in Bath.
Everything all went very well, no issues at all and everyone had such a good weekend.
The hotel in particular was very nice, and the staff were great, very friendly and helpful!
Just wanted to say thank you, have had a lot of positive feedback from everyone who went and will recommend you for future hen parties!
Cara P, Bath, April 2013
Sorry for the delay getting back to you. We had a wonderful weekend, thank you so much for helping to organise it all. It certainly took some of the pressure off me.
Kayleigh, the girl that taught the Charleston dancing was brilliant, perfect for a group of our size and made everyone feel really comfortable. Everyone loved it; even those that were a bit reluctant beforehand were dancing away by the end! The wine tasting was brilliant and worked well for those that knew nothing and the few of us that knew more and I would highly recommend that to anyone looking for something to entertain them.
Keith (from The Chapter) hosted the wine tasting and ended up serving us for breakfast and the afternoon tea and was absolutely brilliant – he put up with a lot of cheek but made the bride feel really special. He put us in a private room for the activities and breakfast so we could make as much noise as we wanted. The hotel were truly fantastic even when there was no hot water in some of the rooms on the Saturday evening we were ushered down to use the spa facilities. We also booked to have various spa treatments, which were lovely, the facial was particularly great.
We did have a few small issues – not that I want to overplay them as we had a great time. Firstly, Fitness First where we were doing the Charleston dancing hadn’t booked a room so they had to move all the spin bikes out of the way which meant we were late starting (not that is mattered to us and the wait at the Montpellier Wine bar for lunch was appalling so at least that wasn’t an issue!)
At the dinner, at the Daffodil, we were on 2 tables, again it didn’t matter but would have been nice to know beforehand so we could have organised who sat where. I had done a table plan that promptly got thrown out of the window! We also found the staff a little rude as on arrival we were sent to the bar whilst they finished the table but were then rushed back to the table as we would not get served otherwise. They were very busy but the food was good considering.
I hope that helps and I certainly don’t want to overplay the criticism as it all worked well.
Katie M, Cheltenham, March 2013
We had a fantastic weekend, my sister absolutely loved it all! Thanks so much for all your help on advising us on the different activities and giving us all the great places to go out, you really did make the process very easy and smooth for us.
Grace Bar was great fun, the only downside was that they ran out of champagne glassed in the club and they were late in seating us for dinner but as we had a booth in the bar this wasn’t really an issue. Being able to spend the whole evening there rather than moving on to find somewhere to go dancing after our meal made it all really easy though, and the minor problems we had were not even apparent to the hen who absolutely loved the evening.
Thanks again for all your patience and great advice, we’ll definitely be using you again for future hen do’s!
Debby C, London, March 2013
Sorry for the extreme delay in providing feedback.
I just wanted to say that the weekend was absolutely perfect. Everything worked like clockwork. The hotel, restaurants, clubs, spa, activities, were all amazing. You made the whole booking process extremely easy too. I’d love to do it all again!
Chris S, Bath, March 2013
Sorry for the delay.
We had a wonderful time on the hen weekend- thank you!
With regards to feedback- very impressed with the prompt email replies and answers to any queries that we had.We did not encounter any problems with any of the components of the hen weekend- everyone was expecting us as planned.
The hotel was fantastic as was the restaurant- lovely atmosphere.
Thank you for making the organising of the weekend much easier and making it a successful one!
If I have to organise another hen weekend I will definitely be in touch again.
Best wishes and thanks again.
Christina P, Bath, March 2013
I just wanted to send you and e-mail to say thank you very much for helping me organise my sisters Hen Doo we had an amazing time, ive never laughed so much.
The hotel was lovely, the staff were amazing they all went above and beyond our expectations. Due to the 1/2 marathon Hector ensured that we were able to get out of the city by staying after his shift had finished and taking us to the park and ride.
We arrived at the therme bath with plenty of time but their systems had crashed so no one could go in until the system was up and running, i was concerned as we had the afternoon tea booked, but i rang the hotel explained the situation and they said don’t worry we can just move the time of the afternoon tea – so accommodating.
Obviously as you can imagine i was a bit worried incase the systems didn’t not get running in time, i spoke to the staff and said that we have our tickets so please could we go through and you just scan our tickets when the system is running. They informed me that they couldn’t do this as it is all linked to the wrist bands/ lockers etc.
The Aqua restaurant was lovely and circo was great.
I would def reccomend Orchid City and Spa to friends and family, and i promise that if i am to organise something like this again i will ring you but i will try not to ask sooooo many quaestions lol.
Thank you so much again we all had a fantastic time.
Alison B, Bath, March 2013
The weekend was brilliant! My sister really enjoyed herself as did all the girls.
We were treated so well everywhere we went especially Circo and Sotto Sotto.
Poor Simon had his name chanted by us girls!
The hotel was beautiful and the spa was divine.
The dance class was extremely amusing and a real work out!
Thank you so much for all your help and hard work, it really made the hen super special.
I will be telling everyone about Orchid City & Spa and the superb service that you gave.
Louise J, Bath, February 2013
Apologies, I meant to send on a note earlier, but I started a new job on Monday and it just got missed.
We all had a fantastic weekend.
The hotel was brilliant – the DVD was in the suite and it was a perfect size for our party and we had a great night in.
Charlotte who took the dancing was excellent and coped admirably with a group of forty year olds moaning about their bad knees – and we got to some semblance of a routine.
Cocktail masterclass was great fun – and the team at the Milk Thistle were really nice and joined in – couldn’t have asked for a better afternoon.
Meal at the Living Room was brilliant – but they did forget at first that we had pre-paid the meal.
Oceana was…Oceana..and not really our cup of tea – but topped off the night with a bit of cheesy fun. I think if we had known what the Milk Thistle was like, we would have gone back there or stayed at the Living Room, but all in all we had a great night.
Organising everything through you was excellent and really smooth and simple – so thank you, and if there is somewhere we can recommend you or leave you a review, then let me know.
Sarah S, Bristol, February 2013
I would just like to thank you for the hen weekend you sorted.
The burlesque dancing was brilliant! The hotel was lovely as were all the treatments in the spa. The meal at the restaurant was superb and the butler in the buff was a great sport and a lot of fun. All in all it was all I could not have asked for more. I will definitely be recommending you to others.
Becci H, Bristol, February 2013
The weekend was fantastic thank you. I have been away for the last week as I wanted to email you and thank you for all your help and how the weekend was a great success. Everything went very smoothly and there were no hiccups.
thank you very much for all your help and I will no doubt be reccommending you.
Natalie D, Cheltenham, January 2013
I would just like to say how efficient you have been. Excellent at responding to my emails and we are really looking forwad to the weekend. It is my twin sister that is getting married and alot of responsibility on my shoulders! ha. Thanks for everything.
Sally S, Leeds, January 2013
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you personally, sometimes I’ve been that busy that I’ve just literally sent one line replies but all your planning, knowledge and support is very much appreciated and you have made my life so much easier, I certainly couldn’t have organised my sister’s hen party with out you!
Kim A, Bath, January 2013
Sorry I haven’t had a chance to email you before today, it’s been a bit chaotic after the floods at home etc!
I just wanted to send a quick email to thank you so much for organising the hen weekend, we had a really lovely time and everything went fantastically well (until the “flood” phonecall Sunday morning that is!!).
I will highly recommend Orchid City & Spa to anyone that needs your services, it was brilliant!!
Nicci C, Bath / Bristol, December 2012
We had a brilliant time! Thank you so much for your assistance in arranging everything.
The hotel was lovely, the dance instructor was brilliant and the cocktail clinic was also brilliant.
Please pass on our feedback to the butler company – The butler we had was absolutely brilliant.
Thank you very much!
Danielle W, Bristol, November 2012
The weekend was fantastic! Everyone had a great time especially the Hen. Thank you so much for all your help and I will be sure to use you again. You will be very highly recommended.
Susan C, Bristol, November 2012
Just wanted to say thanks so much for arranging my sister’s hen weekend. Have just got back and we had a brilliant time. Everything was great, especially the burlesque dancing and cocktail making – please send our thanks on to Claire and the bar tenders, they all made it a brilliant event, it was so memorable and they made us all feel so special.
The weekend was great value and I will be recommending your website to friends.
Rebecca J, Bristol, October 2012
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for arranging such a fantastic weekend for our group. Every element of the package superseded my expectations- every aspect was fantastic! I felt the package offered incredible value for money and yet there was still a sense of ‘no expense spared’ with every element of the package. In addition to this, all the staff we met with were attentive, friendly and helpful- they were all wonderful. And you were so patient with the bride drip feeding me details of the attendees and her chopping and changing her mind as to what she wanted from her hen weekend!
I absolutely loved the Milkthistle and the Living Room restaurant was a perfect choice too as it had a lively, buzzy atmosphere which was perfect for our meal. The food was fab and we had the loveliest waitress. The hotel was also much, much nicer than I was expecting- it was really fab!
Unfortunately we didn’t get to try any of your bar recommendations as the hen was dead set on Oceana but I have kept the email and hope to visit Bristol again with my partner and we will certainly take you up on your recommendations when we do!
I was so impressed with the package I consider using Orchid for my own hen do next year.
Jenny K, Bristol, October 2012
Sorry this is a little late but I wanted to say a HUGE thank-you for organising such a fantastic weekend for us. From the moment we arrived at the hotel, the service was second to none. Equally, the restaurant went over and above the call of duty to ensure that we had a really special night.
Please pass on our gratitude to everyone who contributed to making the weekend one we won’t forget!
Rebecca C, Bath, October 2012
We had a great time thanks.
The hotel was amazing and was really impressed with the food at cote restaurant.
We decided to chill out in the spa on Sunday so didn’t make it back Into town.
Very successful weekend, thanks for the recommendations
Sam C, Bath, September 2012
We had an amazing time on my hen weekend. Everyone enjoyed every single minute. The butler in the buff was perfect, the meal was gorgeous and the afternoon tea was delicious. The hotel was fab and we were lucky enough to meet the stars of corrie and the Man City players.
I could not fault anything and we will definately be booking through Orchid Spa again!!!!
Thanks so much for your help and support.
Lucy B, Manchester, September 2012
The weekend was fantastic. Thank you.
The Grace bar cocktail class was just brilliant. They made such an effort with us and really got the weekend started.
Everything just went like clockwork really. Even our food, everything was perfect, they were waiting for us and everything arrived out on time.
I cannot thank you enough. There is nothing I would have improved but I would certainly say our favourite of the night was The Grace bar!
Tina C, London, September 2012
I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you for organising a wonderful weekend.
Great fun was had by everyone. Your recommendations were spot on.
Thanks very much
Claire H, Bristol, September 2012
We had an amazing weekend, thank you for organising it.
The Milk Thistle venue was perfect for both the photoshoot and the meal. However it was hard to find. We asked several locals and they’d never heard of it!
The director for the shoot said she wasn’t informed about our red carpet theme but the props she had brought with her went well so that wasn’t a problem.
The actors for the murder mystery were brilliant. I would definitely recommend them.
The 3 course meal was delicious.
The hotel and spa was lovely.
We ended up going to a night club called Java. I got our names on a guest list so that worked out well for us all.
I’ve never been to Bristol so would recommend it.
Thank you again for all your help.
Amanda S, Bristol, September 2012
It was all absolutely spot on!!! I can’t thank you enough for your help! The service has been fantastic!!!
All staff in hotel, restaurant etc were accommodating and very helpful!
The bride to be had a great time-as did we all!
Many thanks once again for your fantastic help and advice!
Hannah F, Bath, Aug 2012
We all had a fantastic weekend. The hotel was lovely and the charleston was good fun. The food at the cosy club was Idealbefore the night clubs.
It was all well organised and went very smoothly thank you for all your help.
Lisa B, Bath, Aug 2012
I would just like to say on behalf of the girls, the bride to be and myself, we had a fantastic time last weekend. We would also like to praise Claire took the Charlston lesson and Jake and the other barman at the Milk Thistle, who were brill and ensured that we all had a good time!
Liz J, Bristol, July 2012
Last weekend was a success, thank you for all the planning!
Saturday was absolutely awesome!! Everybody loved the charleston and cocktail masterclass, and thought the venue was amazing! All the girls were well impressed and happy that they each got a chance to make 2 cocktails each.
And to top it off,we all danced the night away in oceana!
My sister had such a fab weekend, thank you again for all you hard work in putting it all together. 🙂
Cerys P, Bristol, July 2012
We have had an amazing time in Bath ….. thank you so much for organising!
We couldn’t fault a thing. From the spa, hotel, restaurant – brilliant. Everyone was expecting us and had all the right information so no hassle at any time from anyone. What made our weekend that much more amazing and really indulgent were the hotel staff. They made us feel so important and were extremely friendly, like we were royalty. I really cannot wait to go back there again and i know i am speaking on the whole party’s behalf.
Plus i would definitely recommend the restaurant, the staff were amazing, service very good and food was delicious. I’m so pleased we chose to go there.
Thanks again, a fantastic weekend!
Steph S, Bath, July 2012
I just wanted to say thank you for helping to organise my sister’s hen weekend last weekend.
Everybody had a wonderful time and everything went smoothly which was a relief for me. I’ve been recommending your company to anyone and everyone since, and I wish you all the best with your business. Thanks again!
Sadye B, Bristol, June 2012
Sorry for the late reply, we had a wonderful time really enjoyed the cocktail master class, already planning to return!!!
The only downside was the weather, but you can’t have everything!!!
Thanks again for your help and assistance, just the wedding to go!!!
Kelly C, Bristol, May 2012
It went really well thanks!
The cocktail class was really fantastic – Ont was just brilliant and his cocktails were really impressive, they were literally the best Mojito and Cosmo I’ve ever had!! And it was great at the end when we got to come up with our own concoctions – would really highly recommend that to anyone!
Dinner at Firehouse Rotisserie was also very good and that worked really well because it’s next door so we just went straight from Brugada Bar to dinner. We made a mistake then by going to Circo too early – mainly because no one wanted to walk (most of them were Aussie’s and they were too cold!!!) – I then had to convince everyone that it’d get better as it got later, which it did! The other thing that was a slight problem there was they wouldn’t let the bride to be wear her Veil – so might be worth mentioning that to other hen parties! I’d say it gets going in there around midnight and then it was great, good music and a nice crowd.
The treausure hunt was a real highlight, I was slightly anxious about how it would work, but it was brilliant and I think I want to do the one in Chester for my 30th Birthday!! Again, would highly recommend this to people, and I think it was actually Sam’s favourite part of the whole weekend! We then had lunch at Hall & Woodehouse – fab place!! The only downside here was that they had ran out of Sunday Roasts by the time we go there at 2.30pm but I have to say the food we had was gorgeous so no complaints!!
The hotel was also fantastic, Brian (I think he was duty manager) was SO attentive it was unreal, he made us all feel like really special guests and really went out of his way to make it a special weekend for us. The spa was great too – the thermal area was a real highlight for everyone. Alot of us had treatments and they were lovely.
All in all it was really fantastic, so thank you very much for all your help and guidance. I’m getting married next year and fancy my hen do in York so I’ve told my sister all about your company so hopefully you’ll be hearing from us again :)!
Lucy W, Bath, May 2012
I just wanted to say a massive massive thank you for all your help with the planning of the hen weekend, we had a great time, everything was perfect, hotel, meal and we loved loved loved the quad bikes. Thanks again
Claire B, Cardiff, March 2012
I thought you might appreciate a few lines of how we got on with the hen weekend on 23/24/25 March 2012.
We dropped very lucky with the amazing weather. I had hired a limo to take us direct to the hotel, save messing with trains and taxi’s.
The hotel was fantastic, rooms very comfortable and clean, staff couldn’t do enough for you, and always checking that you was ok. The upgraded room was beautiful and more than enough room for us all to enjoy nibbles and drinks during our butler session. The butler in the buff really was in the ‘buff’!! (a nice surprise for our older party goers). James was very professional and really kept the party going for us all and we did nothing but laugh the whole time he was there, he was a real friendly guy and really made the night for us.
We ate out on the Friday night at Za Za Bazaar and this place is fantastic and I would highly recommend it to anyone. It was busy and we did have to queue sometimes but thats to be expected. On the Saturday night we took one of your recommendations and went to The Living Room, once again this place is fantastic, staff really friendly and helpful, and the food.. Well by far one of the nicest meals I have ever had!
The whole weekend was a huge success with all the girls enjoying every minute, so thank you so much for all your help and advice, it really did help a lot.
Ali W, Bristol March 2012
We all had a fantastic time. I was so impressed by the hotel; it was perfect for what we needed. The spa was the perfect size and Emma really enjoyed the treatment – it was a lovely sunny day so the outside spa area was put to good use – we all looked like prunes!! We had lunch in the hotel restaurant the food was amazing, service was brilliant throughout the weekend.
The cocktail clinic was a lot of fun and definitely got us in the spirit of things, the bar men were great perhaps the cocktails were a bit too tasty!!
The cosy club was a great atmosphere but the menu was quite limited as it was a party menu, but otherwise perfect for what we wanted.
Thank you for all your efforts and help, I will definitely be looking to book any other hen parties through you.
Rosie S, Bath, March 2012
Just to say THANK-YOU for all your hard work in organising my hen weekend in Bath – it was superb and I especially liked the little touch of having some chocolates delivered to my room on arrival. The canapés and sparkling wine at the Spa were lovely and we are still finishing off the enormous chocolate fudge cake. Everything went like clockwork and everyone enjoyed themselves very much. The food and staff at Aqua were excellent and it was a nice atmosphere downstairs so we needn’t have worried.
The hotel staff were very friendly and it was very easy to get taxis into town and back although we mainly walked as it wasn’t very far.
Anyway thanks again and we would definitely recommend you to anyone else planning a hen weekend!
Gina M, Bath, March 2012
Hi Paul just a quick note to say thanks very much for organising a great weekend.
The Hotel was very lovely, the Thermea bath amazing, and they did lovely food, drink and cake in our little room. The girls loved their treatments.
The meal at Acqua was lovely, they let us dress the tables, and we found a great cocktail bar for dancing the night away, sub 31 or something (I think you recommended it).
My sister had a great time. The girls stayed on and used the hotel spa facilities too.
Many thanks again
Vanessa M, Bath, 3 March 2012
Thanks to Paul and the team at Orchid City and Spa for a wonderful weekend in Bristol! The hen was delighted with all the surprises- the hotel suite upgrade (the staff were very helpful and friendly) the amazing Burlesque class set in a 1920s bar, (we are sure the photos will look fabulous) and the Butler in the Buff who really got the party started! The recommendation of the bar and nightclub were also spot on. We danced until the small hours and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. I would recommend Orchid City and Spa to anyone who is looking for a memorable and original hen weekend with great friendly service at an affordable price.
Katherine S, Bristol, 6 Jan 2012
