My husband and myself have just enjoyed a two night break at this hotel. Our first impression wasn't particularly good because we couldn't find anywhere to park at first, which is never good after a long journey but when we eventually checked in and asked, we were told that we could park in front of any of the three properties...

The hotel, outside pool and indoor areas are very very clean. The temperature of the water was lush! Breakfast is continental as well as English. Everything was very nice and plenty of food. Yes, it is a dated hotel inside, however outside everything is looks he had a revamp. The room we stayed in was very spacious, ideal if you... More

Have just had a really delightful weekend at The Chine Hotel in Bournemouth, a place we know very well having visited it for many years. The situation of the hotel is lovely - set on a hillside just outside Bournemouth with wonderful gardens and outstanding views, it is a short walk into Bournemouth along the promenade flanking beautiful sandy beaches....

Dated hotel that needs upgrading, stayed in a single room at the top of the hotel - room really hot. Some staff great others really did little to make your stay comfortable (especially reception staff)

Boscombe has a bit of a fearful reputation however this hotel is on the edge of the town and approx 2 miles outside of Bournemouth, a nice stroll along the seafront and you're there. It has leisure facilities, which alas I did not use. The breakfast is standard fayre - buffet style but you do get stunning views. I was... More

Stayed in a family garden room over the Bank Holiday. The room was very large and the bunk beds tucked in a 'cupboard' were great for our son. However the room decor, especially the carpets was tired and unkempt although it was clean on the surface. The outdoor pool was amazing as was breakfast. The cleaning staff who prepared the... More

Stayed there last night via Groupon Deal; paid an extra £20 to upgrade to a garden room. The hotel was great. The room was large with a balcony. Excellent leisure facilities including a heated outdoor 20m pool. Beautiful buffet breakfast. Highly recommended.

Stayed here recently with my daughter and my two grand daughters.The room was very comfortable with plenty of space for us all. The girls loved the soft play area and the pool and were very reluctant to leave. Parking was ok but would imagine it could be tricky at the height of the season. The food was very good and... More

A lovely old hotel in beautiful grounds with sea views, excellent gardens, lovely outdoor pool and great position for the beach.
