We stayed here just after Easter, charming hotel. Facilities for children very good. The hotel is a Victorian building which we liked. Snooker and table tennis for rainy days too. We will return. Thanks!

The hotel is located in very picturesque garden and also... More

Review of the Chine Hotel, Boscome, Bournemouth: I booked to stay at the Chine for a two-night break to celebrate my partner's 22nd birthday in April 2015, and unfortunately have to report the numerous issues we encountered during our stay. The staff at the hotel did work to counteract these problems so I will include details of these actions as... More

From the front the hotel doesn't look like anything special, however I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by the facilities and gorgeous grounds. Although it did not effect me, the leisure facilities (Gym, pool) were closed 'until further notice' during my trip. My room was large and had all the expected facilities in good order. I had dinner... More

We stayed in a family room with our 5 and 6 year old. Family room, actually large room with adjoining child's rooms with a door you can close in between - joy for all parents as no need to sit in the dark once children in bed! Staff couldn't have been more helpful or sweeter with kids. Soft play and... More

Chico in the restaurant was so hospitable. We had room 201 which was a first floor sea view room - spacious with a big bathroom. Decor very dated but added to... More

I have been going to this hotel for over 30 years and it never fails. It is in a lovely position so it is well worth asking for a room with a sea or garden view. It is slightly old fashioned, particularly the great old lift with the original gates which my childen used to love. Swimming pools both indoor... More

I have always admired this hotel from afar as I grew up in the area. Many happy childhood memories of walking through the chine gardens and looking up at this beautiful hotel. So when I got engaged it was naturally the first place we went to look at and we fell in love with it. It's charming, comfortable and the... More
