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

My head office of my company is in Bournemouth so I have to make regular one night trips, I've yet to find a hotel that I like. The Chine is no different, chintzy, dusty, old, creaky, blimmin expensive are a few words that spring to mind. I left my booking late to try and get a good deal, they wanted... More

This was our second visit to this hotel. The position is fantastic close to everything but away from crowds. Our room had great sea views from bedroom and bathroom. However the bed was dire and probably the worst nights sleep we have had.We asked for another mattress but this did not make much difference. Room was spotless but very outdated... More

We've not visited Bournemouth before but decided to try it when a Secret Escapes offer came up. I don't know what other residents experienced but our stay at the Chine Hotel was excellent. The hotel is situated just outside Bournemouth at Boscome but it's a lovely walk from there into Bournemouth or you can catch the road train that runs... More

Grounds are fantastic, and you can walk down to the beach. Pools etc also brilliant. Breakfast was plentiful and varied. Usual English buffet with fruits etc... More
