I was disappointed with the poor service and attitude of the staff. The hotel has some lovely elements to it but apart from a nice pool it really is not worth the money. I travel a lot and stay in some fab places like Dubai and pay the same money for amazing service and facilities. A recent stay in Brighton... More

Hotel description has been covered by other reviews. Very personable staff, who really gave the impression they enjoy working there. The Funsters Club was well organised, given how few children were there when we were. Our room was lovely, but I guess it can be a bit of a lottery. The pools are fabulous, gardens gorgeous. The charm of this... More

We had a great stay at The Chine. The "Funsters" were excellent & our boys had a blast taking part in the holiday activities. They've already asked to stay again! The gardens were beautiful & perfect for a relaxed drink while the kids played. Staff were very friendly & accommodating. Would definitely stay again.

Such a lovely location, friendly staff and great facilities. Heated outdoor and indoor pool, outdoor hot tub, gym...something for all the family. Stunning gardens that lead down to the beach which are beautifully maintained..Nice buffet breakfast with views over the gardens and sea. My only glitch so not given 5 stars is the lack of sound proofing in the rooms.... More

Hard to rate the hotel. Without exception, the staff were friendly, welcoming and always greeted as they passed. The views down the chine are great - you could think you were in the south of France when the the sun shines ! The public areas are very inviting with lots of facilities and the grade snare attractive. However, our room... More

Such friendly staff and a peaceful glamorous location. Room 302 has amazing view and is a superb spacious room. Dinner at the hotel was great. Again lovely views and very sweet helpful waitresses. Will always stay here when in the area from now on. It's great value for such a fine hotel too.

Not bad for a three star hotel. Very polite and accomodating staff. Very good buffet style breakfast that was well laid out and plentiful. Bar area comfortable with a relaxing ambience. We stayed in room 16 in the West Wing which is basically another building next to the hotel. Apparently it has been refurbished but all we could see was... More
