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
Jane I, Edinburgh, May 2018
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
Natasha N, Bristol, May 2018

We had a really lovely time 🙂 The whole day was great from start to finish.
The hotel we stayed at was amazing and as my Finace droppped me off, it seems like it will be a potentional wedding venue for us! So thank you for recomending that hotel.
All the staff I have dealt with at Orchid City and Spa, have been fantastic and I will recomend it to anyone who asks!
I will tag you in some of the photos on instagram so you can see them, some great pictures too.

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.
