“Thank you so much to Orchid City & Spa (Ashley and Liz) for helping me organise my best friends hen do in London! I honestly can’t believe how amazing the package was! We had 2 nights in London in Grange Tower Bridge hotel 5*, cocktail making, brunch & dinner all for under £200.
I’m definitely going to organise my birthday with them one year! The hotel was beautiful! Cocktail making at Dirty Martini was so much fun and we got some yummy selection of food with our cocktails. The loop was also great, three floors of music!
The whole process from start to finish was so simple! This is 1 out of 4 hen dos I have to plan this year and Ashley and Liz made this hen do so easy to organise! They will answer any questions you have! The paying system is so easy to! Most importantly the Bride to Be loved her stay at the hotel and so did the Hens! ❤️
Magda M, London, February 2019
Thank you for your email and for helping to organise such a fantastic weekend for everybody, especially Jayne!
The hotel was perfect. A great location with very warm and friendly staff. All the rooms were spotless and the breakfast was spot on too.
The Spa was very relaxing and we all enjoyed our time there, especially in the outside pool on the roof! It was obviously disappointing that part of it wasn’t open but we all had a voucher for a return visit as you said. So hopefully we will all be able to make use of that 😊
The gin and tonic afternoon tea was great fun and presented beautifully. We had a lovely time there with plenty of gin to keep us refreshed! I would however note our disappointment in the fact that there was only a small amount of cream for the scones which ran out very quickly. In turn a good few of us only had jam. We did ask for a top up but were told they had ran out. Not the best when this was sold as an afternoon tea and the fact that there are shops nearby I would have felt it wouldn’t have been too much to ask for someone to run and get some. I know it sounds a little petty but as afternoon tea lovers, I feel the cream is a crucial part of it!
Our meal at The Brewhouse was great and the room upstairs was perfect for us all which allowed us play some hen games and not worry about being too loud.
Our return visit to Circo was fab and we enjoyed a good amount of cocktails along with lots of dancing too!!
Overall we had the best time and everything ran smoothly so there were no last minute hiccups. I would thoroughly recommend you to anyone who was having to organise a large party/hen weekend and you have taken the stress out of all of it.
Thank you to you and your team for being there and making me look like a hero!
Jo R, Bath, January 2019
Just a quick weekend to let you know that our weekend away was marvellous.
Everything went smoothly and as planned.
The Revolution offered us a fantastic time making cocktails (Alex, our mixologist was brilliant, funny and patient. We were surprised at how many drinks we are able to try. The food was excellent).
The taxi service was on time and efficient.
The hotel was excellent – and we received special attention from Mathew one of the porters and from the waitresses at breakfast .
The spa and the treatments offered were also excellent and did just the job in making us feel pampered .
We enjoyed ourselves so much that we plan to do the same next January with Orchid City and Spa…hopefully more people will be joining the group. We wondered if you could recommend any hotels to go to between Birmingham and Bristol way (as we live in Staffordshire, Warwickshire, Birmingham, Worcestershire and East Sussex).
Andres P B, Bristol, January 2019
Dear Ashley and Charlotte
I wanted to write and say a big ‘thank you’ for the wonderful hen weekend we have just had in Bath/Bristol.
We were all slightly late in arriving at the Grand Hotel on Saturday as there were delays on the trains and roads. Our transfer driver, Ali, was incredibly patient and we arrived in Bath in time to have a great look around the Xmas market. The transfers were immaculate, so please pass on our thanks.
We thoroughly enjoyed our high tea and gin tasting at Flipside and were really well looked after by Andy and Sam. It was genuinely fascinating to learn about the origin of gin and to try the different flavours. A thumbs up to the boys from the hens.
Our evening at Veeno’s was very enjoyable. We liked finding out about and trying the different wines and George, our host, was knowledgeable and fun. The spuntini were delicious and our only feedback is that Veeno’s could offer more on its food menu. But we had a great tine and again, a thumbs up from the hens.
Thermae Bath Spa was a perfect antidote to the excesses of the Saturday and we loved the rooftop pool and the aromatic steam rooms. The best bit was our impromptu conga around the lazy river. The queueing is a bit of an annoyance but not anything within your gift to change. A big thumbs up from the hens.
The hotel staff were very helpful and it was great to have parking in the city centre. The breakfast was beautifully cooked and fresh and there was plenty of it. Four out of the five rooms were very comfortable and warm. However one of the rooms,242, smelled of sewage and the occupants had to close the bathroom door and open the windows to dissipate some of the smell.
There was one other incident involving a room at the hotel. When we arrived we weren’t able to check in and left our bags with the concierge. We knew about this in advance and there was no issue at all. I explained to the lady on reception that we would not be back to check in until after 5pm as we had some events to attend. When we got back one of the rooms, 255, had been let out to another guest. While they were able to rectify this, the fact that it had been let out when it was already booked and that we had advised reception staff that we would be late made this a regrettable incident in an otherwise marvellous weekend.
I’d be grateful if you could pass on the feedback to the respective organisations. We are also doing trip advisor reviews.
Finally a big thank you to you both for your efforts and recommendations. Our bride to be and hens had a weekend to remember and were buzzing when they all went home.
With warmest wishes
Annie B, Bath/Bristol, November 2018
Following on from our verbal conversation I just wanted to say a huge big thank you for all the hard work, care and attention to detail that u put in for our weekend away in Bath!
The chosen hotel was perfectly located in the centre and the girls all loved their salubrious rooms plus the delicious breakfast was a very big hit the next day! We certainly tested the kitchen for their poached eggs and smashed advocado option!!
Cocktail making at sub 13 was fantastic and the barman was extremely knowledgeable and skilled in what he showed us plus everyone loved ‘having a go’ too!! Aqua restaurant provided scrummy food to soak up all the cocktails and great ambiance plus we actually made it to circo and had another drink in one of the many cosy lounges! All in all great choice of really good quality venues plus most importantly lots of fun had!! We will most certainly be booking another weekend away with you in the new year!!
Thanks once again both of you and for making Kelly’s bday a huge success!!
Be back in touch again soon!
Jane N, Bath, November 2018
The weekend was a great success thank you! And thank you for all your help. The hen had the most amazing weekend and everything went smoothly.
Imogen B, London, November 2018
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! What an awesome hen weekend. Everything went to plan and the hen loved it!!
You made it all seem so easy. Everyone commented how well planned it was and how it hadn’t cost them a fortune. Having the meals included in the price is genius!
Pizza express we’re so welcoming, the girl that did the dance class was amazing, don’t think I’ve laughed so much in a long time. Our butler was amazing, he knew when to have a joke and when to leave things (for the ones who weren’t too sure). The meal at the Cosy club was so nice too. Then the box at Revolution was amazing!!! Soooooooo much alcohol and we were even given a demonstration!
Honestly there aren’t the words to thank you all. One of the hens has already told her friend about you for the hen she’s organising.
I tried to add the # to some of our pictures but not sure it worked. The dance video should never be seen by anyone 😂.
Thank you again!!
Paula C, Leeds, November 2018
Thank you so much for helping me organise my friends hen weekend. Everyone had a fabulous time and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. All the activities were excellent.
Rachel C, Leeds, November 2018
Just wanted to say thank you so much. The weekend was great and everything was made so easy for us! If I am ever booking another hen do or girls weekend I’ll definitely be coming straight to Orchid City & Spa!!
Once again thanks
Lucy S, Nottingham, October 2018
We had the BEST time and you guys were wonderful support for me! Flawless experience and would highly recommend.

Bath (September 2018)
We all had a great time, thank you!
You and the team were an absolute God send! You made my job so easy! I gave you a list of what we wanted and you delivered everything exactly as I asked with options at reasonable prices. It was great to deal with you and Ashley, you were both always so helpful, polite and professional. I honestly thought at one point it might be a swindle because everything seemed too easy and simple! The deposit and payment schedule were great and we were still all able keep our weekend even though our numbers reduced quite significantly. Ashley even got 2 people added to the club guest list right at the last minute when I was told of surprise guests. If anyone else was planning a weekend, I would definitely recommend you.
I’ll have a look at the photo’s and send or tag the good ones
Thank you for all your help. I will definitely think of you again if I ever have to arrange something else
Noosha P, Cambridge, September 2018
We were all very happy with the weekend – it went perfectly, all thanks to your fantastic organisation skills. All of the activities that were booked were excellent and we were very impressed with the hotel and the level of service.
Thanks for all your help in making Chloe’s Hen Do extra special – she was delighted.
I will send you some images on a separate emails.
I will definitely keep you in mind when planning future celebrations!
Christina G, Bristol, September 2018
We had an absolutely amazing weekend.
Have used you guys once before and you are fantastic! So nice having someone to do all the hard work for you. Especially when your organising three hen do for your sister.
You are all so helpful and so nice to be able to call to email any of you any time.
Would thoroughly recommend to anyone planning a hen do.
Thank you so much

Ella R, Bristol, September 2018
Sorry I haven’t been in touch sooner, I’ve had a busy week!
The weekend was absolutely amazing, I can’t thank you both enough. The bride to be had the best time and so did the rest of us.
On having to cancel the cocktail masterclass due to being too rushed Ashley arranged a £200 bar tab for us, not only did they honor the bar tab but they also did our cocktail masterclass that evening when we arrived! The atmosphere was incredible and I was absolutely blown away by their service.
You have both been fantastic, I’ll ensure to recommend/ use you in the future.
Azure M, Bristol, September 2018
We all had such a fantastic time celebrating her hen! The arrangements were all well planned in advance and it worked like clock-work for us. The punting in particular was a huge hit (and probably my favourite bit of the day).
The team at Orchid City and Spa were fantastic from start to finish and I am SO glad I booked this through them.
Thank you to you and all the team for a great weekend – I was very nervous about being the Maid of Honour and having to arrange this but I can honestly say the stress was minimised drastically!
Thanks again for the John Lewis voucher – I will indeed be treating myself on this one!!
All the best,
Sophie B, Oxford, September 2018

Hi Ashley , thank you for helping me to arrange the hen party. It all went to plan with everyone having a great time !
I’ll share some pictures on social media when I work out how.
Thank you again Maria 😁
Maria B, Bristol, September 2018
Thank you so much!! We all had a amazing time, the hotel was amazing.. food was great but too posh for a hen party! We would of been happy with burger and chips.. but we are not complaining… it was all amazing!
I did tag one photo in Instagram.. hopefully you got it!
Thanks again.. I will def recommend you!
Emma R, Exeter, August 2018
Good evening Charlotte
I would like to say a massive thankyou to you what a smashing weekend we all had.
From start to finish everything flowed with perfection.
My sister was so chuffed and loved all of our activities especially the cocktail making down to the evening meal
We will definitely be doing weekends with you more often
A massive thankyou again
All the best
I will be recommending you to everyone
Donna C, Leeds, August 2018
We had a great weekend thanks! Everything went smoothly and the prosecco, spa and cocktail making class were great! Hotel was excellent too, facilities were lovely and breakfast was delicious, got a lot for our money!
I don’t really have pics to share unfortunately but happy to leave a positive review somewhere?
Thanks for your help throughout and accommodating last min changes, made the planning so easy and everyone had a great time 😊
Anisha B, Birmingham, August 2018
My weekend was fantastic!
Everything ran so smoothly, the hotel was beautiful and all of the suppliers made me feel so special! Your service was fantastic, when Ashley found out there was an issue with our brunch, he worked quickly to sort this out and found an alternative arrangement to ensure my weekend was perfect. The hotel was in a brilliant location close to bars and restaurants and your recommendations helped us have a great night out. I wished I could do back and do it all again! Thank you!
I’ll be sure to tag you in the photos we’ve uploaded.
Thank you for the voucher, I have a few girls in my party who are also getting married so I’ll forward this on to them as they loved the weekend too.
Thank you very much, Emily.
Emily H, London, August 2018
We had a fantastic weekend, the staff were friendly and went above and beyond to ensure we had a great time. The booking and payment system meant organising the weekend simple and stress free. I was provided with a details inventory I could refer to throughout the weekend. Everyone had a brilliant time!
I have already posted some photos on instagram and included the #orchidcityandspa.
That’s great, I will share it with the group.
Leanne S, Leeds, August 2018
I just wanted to send you a review. We all had a wonderful weekend. Everything went really smoothly and we had a amazing time. The spa was lovely and relaxing and there was 1 lady in the spa who was so helpful and helped us sort and book lunch. The hotel were welcoming and we checked in with ease. There were no problems at all. You organised it all brilliantly that I didn’t need to worry or even show our itinerary! So much more relaxing for me as leader of the group which often isn’t the case. The cocktail making in dirty martini was amazing. I would recommend this to everyone, they run on later but this was fine as it lead straight onto the meal as I left an hour in between. The food platters and cocktails were lovely and tasty, the staff were friendly and made our night. Thank you for organising the package for us. You have been so helpful and friendly throughout and answered all of my questions. I was able to give my sister a amazing hen and the day/night wasn’t stressful at all. Thank you again.
Hollie A, Cardiff, August 2018
Just a quick email to thank you – the weekend went very well and everyone had a fantastic time!! Kx
Kate H, Bath, August 2018
Thank you for your email, sorry for the late reply.
I would like to start off by thanking yourself and Ashley in particular who have been amazing in organising and booking the weekend for my sisters hen party! You both were genuinely excellent in giving advise about my weekend. Also accommodating to my requests which was greatly appreciated.
I must say it all went beautifully, perfect weather and the cocktail making class was super fun!
We all throughly enjoyed the weekend of celebrations!
I have added a snap from it’s a knockout.
Thank you all ever so much with planning this as the weekend was surely a memorable one!
With kind regards,
Neelam K, London, July 2018
Thank you, we all had such an amazing weekend and wish we could do it all again! The whole process was so easy. Unlike other companies Orchid City and Spa did not pressure me into booking. This is what made them standout for me. When I decide to book it was so easy and Elizabeth was very kind and helpful, answering any questions I had.
Also a shout out to Ashley who also helped with finalising details and answering my queries.
The actual weekend was perfect, it took the pressure off knowing everything was booked and I didn’t have the stress of having to do that and arrange timings. There were no problems throughout the weekend, everything went so smoothly and we could not have asked for a better weekend. Most importantly the bride had the best weekend and was so grateful. Thank you for everything. Will definitely recommend orchid city and spa and use them again in the future!
Anna K, London, July 2018
On behalf of everyone in Jo’s hen party, I would like to let you know that we had a fantastic time in Bath at the weekend. Everything went according to plan. A few little things missing in our triple room ie extra bath towels, glasses and cups, but they were very accommodating and responded accordingly. Customer service was excellent.
The food at Aqua was amazing. Again staff were lovely and attentive. The Comedy club was great. The last act (Paul Pirie) was so funny, we managed to find out where he’s next performing and booking tickets 😊. We had a fun time at Circo. Lots of drinking 🍸 and dancing 💃. Very fun evening.
The Spa was also amazing – what an experience. We all came out feeling relaxed and refreshed. To top it all the weather was fantastic 😎
A BIG THANK YOU to you and your team for memorable weekend. We’ll definitely go back and do some of the historic attractions.
Diana, Jo, Thalia, Chloe, Deidre, Tia and Dionne x
Bath, July 2018
I just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you so much for putting together all the elements of Ceri’s hen do for us – she had a wonderful weekend in sunny Nottingham and you took the stress out of tying everything together for me – thank you.
Claire M, Nottingham, July 2018
We all had a fantastic weekend thank you!! Everyone really enjoyed the Cocktail Masterclass, it was such fun and the bar man we had was really fun! We all loved that! The afternoon tea was gorgeous and the hotel was really lovely, a few of us are already saying we would love to stay there again! The hotel staff were great too and the food was lovely The only thing we didn’t think was very good was the club unfortunately, it was fairly quiet and very small for a club, also the DJ ignored our song requests completely which was a shame. The rest of the time was amazing though and Orchid City has been fantastic at organising and replying to my emails etc thank you. It all went so smoothly and I will definitely book through you again – thank you for the voucher too as my fiancé and I would love to arrange a spa break for the two of us soon I haven’t looked to see what spa breaks you offer but I will do
Thank you again for the best weekend!! I will upload a few of our pics on to your Facebook page
Laura F, Cheltenham, July 2018
Hope You are all well. I Just want to email you and send you all a huge thank you for helping me organise a great weekend for my cousin. We a had an amazing time and yes it was like Barbados in the outdoor Jacuzzi!
The hotel it self was absolutely stunning. There were only a few small issues but to be honest the hotel was fab at sorting the issue out. (There was no reserved table for cocktails and initially was a bit disorganised but the sorted out meal table early for us which was great).
The only other thing was we will ask for robes earlier as we didn’t realise we had to go upstairs to get to spa treatments. Was a bit weird walking through a bar area to the spa in a costume and towel haha. Live and learn and it really wasn’t a problem. We would definitely go back there!
We do have more photos and u do plan on uploading them on instragram with your hashtag so keep an eye out!
As for your services I really couldn’t be happier. You are all really professional and very prompt in organising and answering questions. I highly recommend your company and have mentioned your company to a few colleagues about how good you all are. So a big thank you to you all!
I shall pass the voucher on to the party and thank you very much for that. This weekend was hugely important to get right and make special for my cousin due to family reasons. Thanks to you all you helped me give that to her. Please feel free to use my feedback for any of your business pages.
Michelle G, Bristol, July 2018
I had the best hen night ever!! Everything was organised to perfection and we had no issues at all.
We had to wait for friends to arrive on the Saturday who got delayed but the restaurant were more than happy to move our afternoon tea abit later.
The hotel itself was beautiful, such a good choice and the staff were all very accommodating.
We were having such a good time in the club that come our 2pm pick up none of us wanted to leave, sure we would have stayed till closing had we not booked the mini bus!!
I’m so pleased I booked though you, you have been fab and always got back to me if I had an issue or a question.
Perfect from start to finish!
I would like to take my Mum back to the hotel on maybe a spa wkend as she still hasn’t forgiven me for not inviting her!
Zoe B, Bristol, July 2018
We are all well thank you. Hope you are too.
We all had a fab weekend. The hotel itself was amaz!! And the day out at the therma spa in bath was so lovely, everyone is still raving about the whole weekend now.
All went very smoothly from start to finish. So we were all very happy and would highly recommend you guys to friends and family.
I would like to say the only thing that all of us noticed was the poor and slow service behind the bar at the hotel. A couple of the staff were a tad blunt and a few of the girls found them rude. But all the other staff at breakfast and reception were lovely.
Other than that a great weekend.
I was wondering when I will receive the pic from the life drawing class? Will they be sent to my email?
Mandy H, Bristol, July 2018
Hi Liz, have been meaning to message but it’s been a busy week.
What a fantastic weekend we had! The weather was awesome! Leeds was heaving due to the football too so it was great!
The weekend could not have gone any better and everyone, especially the hen loved it! Booking the weekend and the payment system was so easy! It’s been a pleasure to deal with you and Charlotte Rowley throughout!
Hotel was fabulous, no complaints at all! Treasure hunt was absolutely brilliant, I would absolutely recommend this to people! Food and service at BIbi’s was also perfect!
I don’t like to be negative but I guess it’s helpful to you…. the only thing I would say overall was that everything about the weekend was ‘luxury’ yet Tiger Tiger was ‘chavvy’! On Saturday the weather was so hot but they had a problem with their Air con which meant it was far to hot inside! The hens just sat down as it was so hot and after less than an hour we decided to leave as it was unbearable and we headed to another bar/club not far away! It didn’t really affect our night and everyone danced the night away until the early hours but it was a shame when we had a booth/drinks as part of the package!!
Nevertheless booking with you guys was a pleasure and I’m currently trying to arrange another weekend away early 2019 so I may be in touch very soon!!
Please feel free to use my Facebook/Instagram pics 😊
Thanks again, Rachel xx
Rachel S, Leeds, July 2018
Thanks so much for the great organising of my sisters hen do. She loved every minute.
The hotel was really great, modern and central and the food first class.
The murder mystery was a huge hit and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it too.
Thanks for the prompt and helpful correspondence you have provided throughout the booking process I would highly recommend you.
Rebecca M, Bristol, July 2018
I never said- thank you for all your help with the weekend, would recommend Orchid City Spa to help prepare a weekend away. Everyone had a great time and especially the Hen, enjoyed everything!
Amber S, London, July 2018
We had a great time thank you and Lucy loved it. We had great service and quick response from you every time from booking to going and had good details and explanations and updates. Friendly service 😊.
The only thing for us would be that we found it difficult to locate the Thames disco cruise boat as it wasn’t clear which one we were boarding. But we found it and had the best time.
Lindsay S, London, July 2018
Sorry for the late reply but have just about recovered from the weekend 😀
May I please start by saying that Ashley who helped me organise my sisters hen weekend was absolutely brilliant nothing was too much trouble and gave us some great recommendations she is an absolute credit to your company.
The weekend was amazing start to finish the hotel was fantastic and very central again nothing too much trouble for them A+ for them. The Thai restaurant that you booked for us was a delight never had better even if we couldn’t finish all the wine 🍷. The dance class was beyond anything that I could of imagined and the lady we had was great really go us in the mood for the party.
The afternoon tea what can I say heaven on a tiered plate. Even the nightclub was fantastic even for us non clubbers May I just say that I am so thankful that I chose you to help me organise a unforgettable weekend for my little sister and have already recommended you to friends and family for any special occasion.
Louisa K, Bristol, June 2018
We had a really great weekend. Thank you. The whole process of booking with you was really easy and stress free from start to finish which is absolutely ideal when you lead a busy life juggling parenthood and work!
All of the activities we booked were brilliant and the whole weekend ran really smoothly so thank you to you and Ashley for all your help in making it happen.
Kelly H, Bath, June 2018
I have to say that the service I have received from Orchid has been fabulous.
And Ashley has been amazing. Everything has been brilliant from start to finish.
We booked a hen party this year but next year we want a girls weekend and can’t wait to book it through you again. Thank you so much xx
Evette H, London, June 2018
We had the very best time thank you!
The highlight was the dance experience absolutely brilliant! I cannot tell you how much we enjoyed it.
They were brilliant with all of us but especially Lauren.
I would highly recommend them.
Thank you for all your help sorting the weekend!
Sam E, London, June 2018
Thank you so much for putting together such an amazing weekend for us. Everything was absolutely perfect and we had the best time!
Harriet’s Tea Room was fabulous, with the most delicious array of goodies. The staff looked after us very well too. We then made our way over to the Dance Studio, where Ayesha took us through a fun dance routine. We had so much fun!
The Cambridge Belfry was excellent and I cannot praise the staff there highly enough. They really went the extra mile to make sure that we were well looked after and all our needs were catered for. The evening meal was very good and we had great fun in the bar afterwards. In fact we were having such a good time that we decided not to go to Revolution after all.
The spa treatments on Sunday morning.were very professionally done and we were all made to feel very relaxed and happy.
Oh and I forgot to say, the breakfast was brilliant too! So much choice and everything was hot and fresh.
I don’t do Instagram and I am not sure if you have a Facebook page so I haven’t actually posted any photos anywhere. I’ve attached a few to this email instead, if you are able to do anything with them.
Once again Charlotte, thank you so so so so much for all your help and support in making our weekend so stress-free and fun. I will recommend you far and wide! Hattie the Hen said to say a huge thank you too!
Very best wishes,
Cathy L, Cambridge, June 2018
Have been meaning to email, but been a mad week! The weekend was fab and all went really smoothly. Would and will definitely be recommending you to others-a very smooth operation and excellent value for money. Thank you for all of your hard work.
Emma W, Bristol, June 2018
Just to let you know that we had a fantastic weekend! The arrangements made by yourselves were spot on! The hotel was a great venue – very friendly and comfortable. The leisure facilities were perfect for us – we were all able to relax on Saturday afternoon. The meal and entertainment at the Komedia were brilliant. When we arrived, we were asked if we were VIPs and I said no at first and then remembered that we were!! Lovely evening. One really good comedian and two mediocre, but still lots of fun and a great atmosphere! Sorry it is over now!
Happy to write a testimonial if ever required!
Many thanks Charlotte – now back to the day job!!
Karen C, Bath, June 2018
The weekend was a great success! Everything went very smoothly and we all had a great time. There is nothing that we would change and nothing that needed changing!
Many thanks for helping me organise it.
Emily J, Bristol, June 2018
Then hen weekend was a success. The bride to be and and the hens all seemed to have had a fab time. Some sore heads the next day but all in all a good weekend.
Thank you to yourself and Charlotte for all your help! I have tagged you on my recent post, which has a few pictures of the night.
The hotel was able to accommodate an early check in which was VERY helpful as we wanted to decorate the brides room. So i would say this would be an important add on for future bookings perhaps?
There was a little confusion as to what names the rooms were booked under. It turned out one was in Debbie’s name and the other was Jen’s name. I think from the itinerary that was sent to me it said would be in either mine/orchid or Charlotte’s name. The spa and treatments were fab. One of the ladies managed to book for the following day.
The restaurant was great. It just would have been nice to use the music facility, they did have a basic play list there which was okay i guess. We could have connected our phone to their system but everyone had new iphones but no lightning to headphone jack converter. I did get in contact with the restaurant to see if we could pop in the morning to decorate a little. Unfortunately they had a lunch booking so we couldnt, they also said they didnt receive the table plan which i gave to them. But everything was fine.
Our butler Paul was fab. Such a good sport! We played a number of games from the Butlers in the Buff pack you sent – with him. So it was great! So much good fun.
Thanks so much again. I’m getting married next year so we may we ll be in touch!! There are a few big birthdays around me too!
Have a fab week & weekend.
Mary F, London, June 2018
Just writing to say a massive thank you for all your help arranging my sisters hen in Leeds. Everything was perfect. We had the best time, the activities, location and the Crowne Plaza hotel made it a weekend to remember.
We had such fun at our Cocktail Masterclass in Dirty Martini, the staff were brilliant and atmosphere was great.
The fantastic location of the hotel and activities made navigating the city simple, even after a prosecco lunch!
I will be recommending Orchid City & Spa to my friends and family and hope to join you again soon. You helped make it a really special weekend.
Thanks again, Chloe x
Chloe E, Leeds, May 2018
Thank you for your email, we all had a brilliant time!
Ashley who organised our trip for us, was amazing! Nothing was ever too much to ask, all options were always offered including alternatives and I was never made to feel silly for asking questions, brilliant customer service !!
The spa was lovely, very clean and the therapists were friendly at all times, everyone loved the treatments.
The hotel was clean and food was lovely, however the staff at check in weren’t very welcoming, a little disorganised and confusion within out group appeared as different staff were telling members of our group different things, in terms of check in times, an afternoon snack & although check out wasn’t until 12pm the cleaners were knocking on our doors from around 8am to clean the rooms.
The cocktail making masterclass was amazing, very fun & a great laugh ! The men that carried out our class were brilliant really enthusiastic, happy & welcoming. All our girls thoroughly enjoyed it… The cocktails were ace too ! Candy pants was the favorite !
Overall we had a lovely time, full of laughs & created a lot of memories ! I think you’ll definatly be kept in mind for future group bookings !
Emma H, Bristol, May 2018
We all had an absolute ball. The age group ranged from 30 to 65 and the oldies had just as much fun.
Everyone was included in the Highland games so could join in to the best of their abilities. The instructors were great fun and we all had a good laugh.
The Monkey Barrel was a intimate venue which worked really well and it was nice having a mixture of acts.
Our spa treatments were the perfect treat on the Sunday after using all our energy. I did feel there wasn’t much choice for me on the light lunch being gluten and dairy free.
Everything ran perfectly and I would definately use you again for a weekend away. A lot of my friends have been on loads of hen do’s and said that this was the best one.
Thank you so much

I am just writing to say thank you for everything with regards to the hen do planning. It truly was an amazing couple of days. The hotel was spot on, the staff were lovely and the dance class/meal were wonderful. We all genuinely laughed from start to finish & we will never ever forget the memories we have made.
Jessica R, Newcastle, May 2018
It was incredible!! We had a fantastic time!!!
The cocktail class was excellent fun and great value for money and really set the scene! The meal was very tasty although the data I received made it look allot posher than it was! I didn’t realise that footage was from their opening night or that their would be children present?! But food was delicious!
The comedy club was funny for multiple reasons! ….
we finished the night off in the club post comedy and I started a the konga with a unicorn- result!
It was also fabulous to have a dip in the pool and relax before heading back!
Excellently executed, Top marks! Well done!
You made me look great! Thank you x
Would love to accept the voucher for the future.. may plan something with my husband for his 40th … we have over 12 months 😀
Thank you again

Clare S, London, April 2018
We all had a great weekend thank you. The hotel was perfect and the staff were all lovely and helpful – it was a great recommendation! We enjoyed the spa followed by a meal and drinks in the city.
Thank you to you and Ashley for all of your help, it certainly made organising the weekend much easier. Having the itinerary with all the information and contact details was really useful, I will definitely be recommending your service to everyone.
Zoe M, Bath, March 2018
The weekend was brilliant thank you. Very relaxing. Booking through orchid made everything easier and everythingran smoothly when we arrived. Tables were ready for afternoon tea, they expected us at pur treatment times etc and the payment plan meant everyone could pay as and when they wanted without the pressure being on one person
Thank you for all of you help. I will pass the voucher onto the rest of the group.
Bethany T, Leeds, March 2018
Just wanted to say that everything went of so so well…. the hotel were amazing …. couldn’t do enough for us and the snow didn’t stop us! We only had one girl who couldn’t make the journey in the end.
The only real blips we had were when the taxi booked from Comedy took off with a load of random people but I called them and they sent another!
It really was a pleasure to work with you and we are so so grateful for your help and all that you did for us…. answering endless questions and then helping us reshuffle everything around at the last minute.
The bride was so happy and had so much fun …. she said it was one of the best times of her life …. so we think that means we all did alright and you were a huge part of that.
Hope you have recovered from the stress that the snow caused. Wishing you all the best for the rest of the year and beyond
Our biggest and best thanks and a little squeezy cuddle!
All the best
Pippa and Katy xxx
Pippa W, Nottingham, March 2018
Thank you for your email! I’m so sorry for just getting back to you!
Yes! We had a brilliant time! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and were really impressed!
Both yourself and Ashley have been such a great help throughout the process! You both were brilliant at coming back to me with my 101 questions! You took a massive amount of stress off the whole process! Thank you so much for all your help I certainly will be recommending you to everyone!
The life drawing was brilliant! I was worried about how the set up would work and how it would go down with the bride but John our tutor was so much fun! Lauren relaxed and really enjoyed it. I felt sorry for poor Marlon our model who had to put up with us all!
The hotel was lovely and were really helpful and we had a great time at Sway to!
I was slightly worried about Sway as after speaking to them separately regarding booking a reserved area for us all to sit at after our meal. Cut a long story short, on the night we had a fab time, Kevin our waiter was brilliant nothing was to much trouble and as they needed us out by 9.00pm Kevin and the manger (which I can’t remember her name but was lovely!) sorted us out a table with some chairs downstairs which I really appreciated.
Once again thank you so much! Everyone had a lovely time and we had one happy hen!
I will make sure we tag you in the photo’s!
Michelle R, London, February 2018
We had a great weekend thank you! I found the Orchid City & Spa a huge help, having never been to Leeds before it was good to have recommendations of where to go and stay – all of which were a success. Additionally, having such a large group the payment website was a god send!
Thanks for helping me plan and execute such a good weekend!
Samantha H, Leeds, February 2018
Just wanted to say thank you very much for all your help the past few months. Bride to be had an amazing time. Hotel was great and everything was amazing. Didnt quiet manage the night out on Saturday as we stayed out and totally forgot we had the club booked lol. Ended up at another club near where we were anyways so not a total loss hahah. Dont have insta(only FB sorry) but if you need a nice little picture of the bride to be (Amanda) then av just sent this over.
Thanks again, definitely recommend you guys 🙂
Claire A, London, February 2018
Thank you to everyone who helped organise the weekend. It was great and the hen loved it!
Everyone, Ashley in particular, was fantastic at answering my (many!) questions and sorting things out.
Thanks very much!
Kirsty S, London, February 2018
We had a lovely time at the spa and the light lunch was so nice! We had a good time at the club
Too. So very happy with it all.
Thank you again for all your help, I know it was a large group to organise so I appreciate it.
Fiona K, London, February 2018
Melissa’s hen party went so well over the weekend and everything went according to plan. Everyone enjoyed the weekend including Melissa. She was one happy bride to be!
The hotel was grand and the food was beautiful, everything was perfect.
I would like to say a massive thank you for putting this package together and for helping to finalise the booking arrangements. That was a massive help and a huge weight of my shoulders. This hen do was not stressful to plan at all as you mainly done all of the hard work!
The only thing that was annoying was that the Oxo wanted their table back by 10pm, so well did felt a bit rushed at the last 15 mins. I just wished we could have had longer to stay at the table as some people only came to the meal.
However, overall it was great and we all had a wonderful time. Thanks so much for all of your help and I will definitely recommend you guys or I will use you again.!
I have attached some photos of our fun weekend.
Sophia M, London, February 2018
I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you for all your help Liz with regards to planning the trip to Leeds for my sister’s 30th birthday- you saved me a lot of time, effort and stress and the weekend still had a personal touch. I have been recommending Orchid City and Spa to everyone and I will definitely use again!! We all had an amazing time! Thank you!
Samantha S, Leeds, January 2018
Just to let you know that my hen weekend was fantastic and everything went very well and the companies involved were very welcoming and professional.
Samantha H, London, January 2018
Hi liz, The weekend was amazing so thank you so much I couldn’t fault anything, I will tag you in the photos. But here is one of all of us in the hotel.
Kelli S, Bath November 2017
THANK YOU so soooo much to you, Ashley and the team for all you help. – especially with the last minute changes/addition. I really appreciated that.
I’m pleased to say that Amita’s Hen Weekend was a great sucess. We were blessed with great weather, the hotel was lovely (great breakfast as well as location).
The Bollywood dance class was a laugh. We tried to remember the moves at the wedding and didn’t do too badly concidering we had quite a few glasses of bubbly. 🙂
All I will say is that the dance teacher wasn’t exactly what we expected. At first we thought he was one of the bar staff having a laugh. I guess we were kind of expecting someone a bit more dressed up……… but he did alright in the end.
Everyone loved the cocktail class and of course the Butler in the Buff – maybe a bit too much. Hee hee. He was good fun, interacted really well with everyone and was very helpful with the hen games.
Amita and the girls really loved the cheesey disco music in the club – I thought we’d never leave. ha ha
And thank you for sharing my La La Land Boomerang video on instagram. Glad you liked the theme. I’ll try send/share more pictures with you when I get the chance.
So yes our Hen was very impressed but I couldn’t have done it without your help so thank you again.
Rosie O, Bristol October 2017
The weekend was wonderful. The bride was very pleased with it so thank you very much for helping to organise this
Natalie M, Bristol, September 2017
We have just returned from our weekend away! We had a fantastic time! Everything was organised so well and it was perfect. Everyone had a great time, especially the bride who loved it! We did use the hashtag a few times!
Thank you so much for all your help!!
Jess A, Cheltenham September 2017
I just wanted to take the time to thank you for an amazing hen weekend!
Slight hiccup at the spa but Izabella was amazing and it was sorted without very much effort from our side (one of the therapists wasn’t in). We were given a reduction in price on the extra treatment we had ordered ourselves, which was very kind of the spa. It just meant we had to take turns one by one going in but this meant we had more time together as a group minus one each time.
The meal was lovely, hotel lovely – all in all very pleased.
Thanks for all of you assistance, as I said before you guys at Orchid made it very easy for us!! I would certainly recommend your services.
Anji C, Oxford, August 2017
Sorry for such a late reply! Been meaning to email you to say thanks for all your help and advice in the lead up to the Hen weekend! We all had a fab weekend and was definitely one remember 🙂 the timings really worked so we didn’t have to rush, the hotel was great, all of the group loved the activities we booked and the food was lovely at the Oxo.
Would definitely use Orchid City Spa for anyother Hen weekends I arrange and will pass it on to other friends too.
Karen R, London, July 2017
Just want to let you know we had an absolutely fantastic weekend! Every element of the weekend was special and such a good laugh! The bride had an excellent time as did the rest of the Hens! Can’t thank you enough for the extremely memorable weekend.
Samantha C, Leeds, July 2017
We had an amazing time. Thanks so much for organising this weekend for us. The Bride to be loved all the surprises.
I will recommend your company to everyone who wants a stylish hen party.
Katy H, London, 2017
Thank you to Orchard City Spa for organising a well ran weekend, that allowed the group to enjoy all of the planned activities. The weekend ran perfectly; we even had extra time to enjoy the cocktail making. Our group had a fantastic fun filled weekend.
Emma E, Bristol, June 2017
Sorry I’ve taken a few days to write to you. I just wanted to say a massive massive thank you to yourself for organising my hen weekend!! We had the most amazing time and thoroughly enjoyed it all. The hotel was great, the treasure hunt was brilliant and the cocktail making class was so so good!! The weather tipped the weekend off as it hit 29 degrees. I couldn’t of asked for anything better!! I had the best weekend of my life and everyone was so amazed at how brilliantly everything was organised and they had so much fun!! I can’t thank you enough Ashley. You are a credit to the company and I couldn’t fault you or the company on anything.
Thank you so much again for everything you have done!
The hen party was great thanks and everyone had a lovely time. The spa and treatments were lovely, rooms at the hotel were spacious and comfortable and we spent the evening at a couple of the bars you had recommended, which were great. 😊
We all had a great time and very much appreciate all your help in organising our weekend. 😊
Louise H, London, June 2017
Just a quick message to say a huge thank you for organising Kate’s hen in Bath. The staff at the MacDonald hotel couldn’t have been more accommodating and everything ran like clock work. The Beyoncé dance class was hilarious and the bride loved every second. I couldn’t recommend your services highly enough!!
We will be using Orchid again in the future.
