The food is very good value and the rooms are clean and spacious with good bathroom and bed linen. Lovely gardens and scenic... More

We stayed here last year and had a lovely time, so decided to return again this year to celebrate my husband's birthday. Last year's wonderful experience was happily not a one-off as we had another excellent stay here. Our room was large and spotlessly clean. The breakfasts were outstanding in terms of quality and choice of food/service from friendly and... More

A great hotel in a great location. Just a few minutes walk to Boscombe beach. The check in was efficient with friendly service. The rooms are big and clean although there are a few signs of wear. There is a great indoor pool which has a Jacuzzi and sauna along with an outdoor pool and Jacuzzi although the outdoor pool... More

We stayed here last night with our 8 month old baby. We stayed at the hotel last year for a wedding and it is a lovely place to go. It's a perfect location for Boscombe beach with only a short walk along the front to Bournemouth pier. Our room was lovely, clean and large. Fantastic views from balcony. I would... More

First impressions are deceiving. This is a large old Victorian hotel with attractive established gardens down to the sea front. Extensive redecoration. Great location. Breakfast would meet everyone's tastes and quality too. Dinner hit the spot and bar team know what they are about. Good but smallish gym. Outside hot tub for up to four people. Good staff attitude nothing... More

We were lucky enough to spend the first really warm weekend at the Chine Hotel, for which we had 2 nights B&B for the price of one. The service was very good, the room very spacious, with a newly decorated bathroom. It was in the annexe, which was pleasant, and I imagine rather quieter than some rooms in the main... More

I stayed with a friend at the Chine Hotel at the end of March 2014 and cannot speak highly enough of the staff. The reception staff are particularly helpful and friendly and the dining staff made extra efforts to seat us well and make us feel at home. The dining room has fabulous views. The spa was great and the... More

I visited The Chine in September 2013 for a short break with my partner. We visited with an online offer and we were very surprised by our stay. The room was spacious and was perfect. Very comfortable and enough space in cupboards. Staff were very friendly and we experienced great service. We also dined in the hotel restaurant and we... More

Weekend at The Chine Hotel, and just have to say what a great hotel this is, the parking was a bit of an issue, drove round a bit, then rang the hotel, who gave instructions where we were able to park, then the weekend began! Lovely room overlooking the sea, couldn't fault the cleanliness of the room or hotel in... More
