Took advantage of a good-priced 2 night break at this hotel through Amazon Local offer in mid July. Hotel has lovely surroundings with a warm open air pool which my wife made great use of. Only a short, but quite steep, walk through the grounds and down to the beach at Boscombe with its lovely sands. We had evening dinner... More

This hotel is well situated in Boscombe. Sitting high on a cliff it offers good views of the beach. A 20 minute walk from the centre of Bournemouth. Many steps and slopes would be difficult if you are not fit! Staff are very obliging but not all have a good grasp of English. Rooms are clean, spacious and comfy. Child... More

Outside heated pool and jaxuzzi. Lots of childrens play areas inside and outside all on hotel rounds. Gardens are beautiful, our room was massive with a... More

Am sad to say this isn't one of the best places to stay in Bournemouth/Boscombe. The staff are perfectly friendly and the rooms are clean. However the rooms need an update to fix a few issues. I was here for two weeks and had two different rooms each one needed something fixing. The cold water is not cold! Towels and... More

This is a hotel that needs an immediate make over, it is very tired, rather like most of the staff who give no eye contact. Check your room out asap as we were given a poky hole of a dump but having pointed out that my son was 10 not 10 months old were moved! Breakfast is shambolic and thank... More

My partner and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights on a secret escapes package. Surpassed all my expectations. We had a room overlooking the pool in the annexe building. Room was good size, linen and towels changed daily, power shower was great. Couldn't believe we were in a 3 star hotel. I would have given it 4. Food... More

My company had the pleasure of staying at the Chine Hotel the week of July 7th thru 13th. It has a charming atmosphere with beautiful gardens that we enjoyed daily. Leading from the Garden was a walkway down to the beach. The best part of the hotel however was the staff. In the morning we had a wonderful Breakfast and... More
