Excellent food & service. As my wife has a mobility issue we had a room for a disabled person; a room large enough for a wheelchair (not needed by us), a wet room, and an additional bedroom (probably intended for a carer). We were celebrating the 50th of friends; the staff could not have been more helpful; and the food... More

I thought this was value for money for a 3 star hotel. The hotel is a little bit tired but the staff gave excellent service and were friendly. We were in room 117 which had a large balcony and views of the sea.(although do wish they would lop some of the trees to make it even better). Our room was... More

We just celebrated our Golden Wedding with a weekend for the whole family and our oldest friends. The Chine Hotel in Boscombe really is a hidden gem of the south. The staff went out of their way to be helpful and friendly. Justina and Caitlin organised the event beforehand really well. Our rooms were lovely, the food was outstanding and... More

On my weekly Bournemouth business visit I stayed here. I booked a double but was issued a twin . The room stank and I discovered blocked plumbing. The pleasant receptionist changed my room to a sea view. Room was lovely. I wish she was more empathetic and apologised. As I was only staying for 10 hours in total, I wasn't... More

We had a fabulous room with a bonus sea and garden view. The room was very spacious (321) bathroom had bath and very good shower. The balcony was spacious too and because the weather was good we were able to take full advantage of it. We used the pools and hot tubs and enjoyed them. There was plenty of choice... More

This hotel is charming with beautiful gardens and great character. Old and new styling though out the hotel but it works well. Our room was spacious and had windows that actually open which was a blessing as the weather was warm. Ate in restaurant one evening and food was good as was breakfast. Will come back again because we found... More

Strange one to review because parts of this place are excellent, for example grounds, setting, views and pools etc. Other bits are average such as staff who while efficient are not very engaging. Disappointingly a few points are terrible, such as mould, parking and grime. Overall therefore........average for rating for me. Excellent bits - The setting of this place is... More

I found The Chine Hotel quite charming and the staff were fantastic in particular Kristina and Roberto in the restaurant. Nothing was too much trouble. Our room was clean, bright and modern and the food in the restaurant was excellent. The gardens are very special. Only one small criticism was the gate at the bottom on the gardens leading to...

Really wanted to give a very good score but just couldn't. The hotel has some great points to be mentioned: great staff, welcoming , polite and very helpful (apart from one individual whom I will put down to having a bad day perhaps...); great location, only 7 minutes to the beach either via road or via their landscaped gardens which...
