We spent three nights at the Chine hotel in summer 2016 and absolutely loved it. It was in a great location for the beach and was big enough for the kids to explore but not get lost in. The food was very good, we ate in the bar one might and the kids loved their buffet. Friendly staff, good size...

Booked a single room, and got a pleasant small room on the top floor (ideal as I wanted a quiet room to work).Sadly, the TV and the Wifi did not work. However, this was sorted very promptly by the very nice and apologetic manager who moved me to a different room, having checked the wifi and tv first. Perfect. The...

One of the nicest hotels in Bournemouth. Food is deliciously fresh,served on hot plates and served by a very friendly staff. The rooms are spotlessly clean and smell beautiful. Lovely fluffy towels,crisp cotton bed sheets,flumpy pillows. Staff are soo,soo,friendly. It's like home from home. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff here,they always serve you with a big smile...

I've stayed a few tines at the Chine. I love the setting of the outdoor pool. It is very attractive and a sun trap. The food is pretty good. The Chine is good value. It is not very modern but charming and comfortable

Took my partner here for a champagne afternoon tea and a dip in the pool. Great views out across the treetops and Poole bay. Service was good and friendly and the tables are set in an arc around the window so everybody gets a view. The changing rooms were small but well equipped and the pool warm in a roman...

I actually used to live in Boscombe and saw the town centre degenerate over the years since the 2008 recession kicked in. But I never went to The Chine hotel in all the time I was there, and I must say I'm sorry I didn't! What a fantastic place it is. My wife and I were in one of the...

Slightly outdated hotel in need of upkeep. Fantastic location, unbelievable grounds including sunken gardens and grottos. Indoor and outdoor pools are excellent as are the hot tub and spa. Onsite gym is small but well equipped. We found the dinner set menu adequate and reasonably priced. Family room was standard (trundle bed pushed in) for 4 but the bathroom was...

Not my first visit to the Chine Hotel and hopefully not my last; it's a lovely hotel with fabulous views over the gardens and Boscombe pier; the staff are extremely helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them; the food, well, simply superb; thoroughly recommend the Chine Hotel

Took our Mum away for a birthday treat. Though the bedrooms could do with a makeover and everything in the bathroom wobbled, this didn't take away from the lovely time we had. The staff were so helpful and friendly. Location was spot on for visiting Bournemouth and just a stroll away from Boscombe Pier. My brother was disappointed to learn...

We've stayed here before and it is a lovely hotel. The pools and spa facilities are fabulous and the main reason for our stay. The staff were all very welcoming and pleasant. However there were a couple of disappointing things on this visit. The outdoor hot tub was out of order and wasn't fixed during our entire 5 day stay;...
