We booked the chine for 1 night 2 day stay during August 2016 for 2 adults and daughter aged 13 to celebrate my husband's 49th birthday. We stayed in room 108, a double room with an additional camp style bed for daughter. It was in the basement area overlooking the car park. But with views of the sea in the... More

Lovely hotel with a perfect location for Boscombe beach. Hotel set in lovely grounds in the Chine with a cut through at the end of the garden out onto Boscombe promenade. The rooms are clean and of a good standard. The leisure facilities of an indoor and (heated) outdoor pool, plus an indoor and outdoor jacuzzi and a sauna are... More

A 3 generation family holiday ranging from 83 to 2 years old. Great fun. Pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and service - we arranged babysitters for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our 3 course meals. Dining room is well soundproofed - just as well as we coincided with the Bournemouth Airshow! Nice bar. Children well catered for... More

Stayed 2 nights with my 2 children. Had to complain about the first room because it was old and tatty and definitely not worth what I paid to stay (curtains hanging off the rail) so receptionist moved us straight away to a smaller but better room. Leisure facilities are very good and the children enjoyed it all. Location is good,... More

This hotel has an excellent rating from me due to a combination of things . The location is fantastic, the grounds are beautiful, the outdoor pool is lovely. There is also a large indoor pool, hot tub, gym, childrens soft play area, etc. Breakfast is really good but I would not eat in the restaurant again due to very little... More

Our room was very spacious with a great view. The staff were excellent and nothing was too much for them, they were all polite and very helpful. The breakfast was very tasty as was the dinner, beautifully presented. The staff at the gym were more than helpful to show my 16 year old how to use the equipment and even... More

Room was fine (needed better sound proofing, but hey, it's an old hotel). What is absolutely awful about this hotel is that after my stay I realised my card had been charged twice. Honest mistake you'd think? Well the surly, unhelpful and downright rude person I spoke to on the phone just tried to fob me off (can you believe... More

We found the Chine to be a lovely experience, far better than the chain hotels we had stayed in before. You can feel the history when you walk around it's rooms. Brilliant views from both our room and the hotel dining room. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel has vast grounds and it was a real... More
