We were lucky enough to spend the first really warm weekend at the Chine Hotel, for which we had 2 nights B&B for the price of one. The service was very good, the room very spacious, with a newly decorated bathroom. It was in the annexe, which was pleasant, and I imagine rather quieter than some rooms in the main...

I stayed with a friend at the Chine Hotel at the end of March 2014 and cannot speak highly enough of the staff. The reception staff are particularly helpful and friendly and the dining staff made extra efforts to seat us well and make us feel at home. The dining room has fabulous views. The spa was great and the...

I visited The Chine in September 2013 for a short break with my partner. We visited with an online offer and we were very surprised by our stay. The room was spacious and was perfect. Very comfortable and enough space in cupboards. Staff were very friendly and we experienced great service. We also dined in the hotel restaurant and we...

Weekend at The Chine Hotel, and just have to say what a great hotel this is, the parking was a bit of an issue, drove round a bit, then rang the hotel, who gave instructions where we were able to park, then the weekend began! Lovely room overlooking the sea, couldn't fault the cleanliness of the room or hotel in...

We went to this hotel as the result of a weekend offer and were very pleasantly surprised by our stay. Although the car parking was a bit ropey, we managed to get in so left the car there for the weekend. Room 016 in the annex was quite big and comfortable and overlooked the pool. It was clean and the...

Although parking is an issue this did not distract from having a thoroughly good time. We had 3 nights at the hotel in the west wing, we were wary with our first impressions from the outside appearance but were not disappointed with the décor and the size of our room number 35 which had a sea view. All of the...

The first hotel to be built in Boscombe before the need of parking. The inability to find a space could be the major setback for a worry free time. We were fortunate parking 3 doors away with almost the last space. Bedroom clean with comfortable bed , adequate ensuite and sufficient space though this did require an upgrade. Staff friendly...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay for two nights bed and breakfast in late March. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. The room was big with an enormous, very comfortable bed, the bathroom was newly fitted with a bath and shower over it. We also had a balcony and sea view which was a bonus. Car parking limited, but...

I bought a deal through amazon local for 3 nights stay with breakfast at The Chine hotel . It is situated near the Boscombe pier with beautiful sea view rooms and free parking. It is an Elegant Victorian era hotel with lot of history. However the rooms have been refurbrised and the red carpets look very nice. The service is...

My wife and I stayed here for two nights in January this year, when we travelled down for the FA Cup tie between Bournemouth and Liverpool. Facilities are very good, and the indoor pool allows for a swim in the winter. There is an outside pool for the summer. The gardens follow a steep path right down to the seafront...
