What a delightful find. The hotel is nicely situated overlooking the ocean. The staff are so welcoming. The restaurant delicious and the pools / leisure facilities delightful - the outdoor pool has to be the warmest most inviting pool I have ever been in. Not to mention the hot tub. I didn't use the gum but did notice an array... More

We stayed Monday 1st to Wednesday 3rd September 2014. A really pleasant hotel, very roomy in all areas, have never stayed in a hotel room so large, no shortage of space. Plenty of pleasant attentive staff, restaurant food was really nice, great buffet breakfast. Plenty of facilities for families, even very young catered for. Very secluded gardens not overlooked by...

We take our two grandsons to the Chine Hotel, Bournemouth every year. The rooms are large and comfortable, the views, if you don't mind paying extra for a sea or garden view, are spectacular. The gardens are beautiful, and the staff very helpful. Breakfast is great, with a good choice for all. Dinner at the restaurant is good, although the... More

We stayed here Sunday, 31st August to Wednesday, 3rd September 2014. Room was fine, clean and spacious. We stayed in the west wing, it was really quiet. Not far from the bus stop or the beach. Breakfast was good enough and we didn't go hungry. Staff offered to bring me tea or coffee to table. I found all staff to... More

Read quite recent review Jayneh363 and think that if you start on bad note with hotel staff the rest will follow and you simply dislike the whole journey and place itself. I found Chine hotel good value for money perfectly located (few minutes away from the beach)with absolutely fantastic garden area. Yes hotel might be not the most modern but... More

We're having a lovely stay. Room decor reminiscent of my Nan's house c.1980 but airy and large with very comfortable beds. Communal areas stylish, especially the bar. Outside pool lovely with a kind of old school charm and beautifully warm. Staff all very welcoming. Views excellent and garden walk to sea steep but again charming. We have a sea view... More

Nice location, great kids entertainment in the high season, but the running of the hotel is a shambles. Dirty laundry left in corridors for hours, messed up reservation for one of our group, evening table booking for dinner was not carried from reception to the dining hall, and the breakfast waiters did not want to put 2 tables together for...

My husband and I stayed at The Chine recently for three nights for his Son's wedding as we no longer live in the area, Unfortunately we should have looked into the hotel first but just presumed it would be a good place to stay and obviously convenient for the reception, sadly the only good thing was the reception!! The gardens... More
