Reviewed 17 February 2014

Enjoyed a great weekend at The Chine for a family gathering. 18 happy people from ages 7 to 86 were all looked after extremely well. We booked the Garden Room for a private function and were served a beautiful meal by attentive staff. The Hotel is clean, the rooms large and the hotel has an elegant and contemporary feel. Breakfast was very good and served in the restaurant which has a light and airy feel as it looks across the gardens towards the sea. Every request we made when booking was carefully considered and all the staff went out of their way to make the stay memorable. Also very good value for money and a short walk to the sea front.

I only stayed one night, my room a single room was compact but had everything you could want. a very bath with shower above hot water all the time. The restaurant's food was very good and the staff were very efficient and very pleasant. The view from the windows was great and if you wanted a Hotel near the sea with great views this is one to look at.

Super 2 night stay at The Chine this weekend. All the staff were very genuine and attentive, the restaurant manager on duty was a particular highlight. Soft play area was perfect for our kids and the funster kids club kept them amused for hours. Food was fabulous and the bed was very comfortable. A great experience and pleasent surprise considering the price. Pool could have been warmer.
We would be very happy to return.

Room Tip: Bunk bed arrangement in our room (31) was ideal, it was in an alcove with partition doors, which the...

We stayed for two nights on an Amazon local deal. The hotel was great, the staff were really friendly and helpful. We had breakfast every morning and a 3 course dinner included. The service in the restaurant was very efficient and the food was lovely. The views from the restaurant were great and looked out on to the sea.

We stayed here for 2 nights on a bed and breakfast basis. We were placed in an outer building just next door to the hotel. Our room was huge with big bay windows and quite nicely decorated. Some of the furniture a little dated but generally nice.
Bed was two singles pushed together which was really comfy. Flat screen wall mounted tv. The biscuits were nice too!
The bar area is quite nice and modern as well as the restaurant. We never ate an evening meal in there but the breakfasts were really good. One of the better breakfasts we've had. Try and get a table near the window. Has gorgeous sea views.
The only one slightly bad point was that my husband slipped in the shower and fell out of the bath, luckily he is ok. There should have been a bath mat in there to prevent this from happening as it did seem to be a narrow bath. We did go to reception and requested a bath mat for the evening. After coming back from a day out they had put in a bath mat.
So overall a lovely hotel and enjoyable stay. Just a shame there's not much to do in Bournemouth. Not at all what we expected but not down to hotel. Great hotel!

We are six ladies who stayed last weekend at the Chine with an Amazon deal. The hotel was excellent and incredible value for money. Our bedroom (203) had a fantastic sea view with balcony and table and chairs outside. The room itself was very clean and the bed was so comfortable. We ate at the restaurant on both evenings and the three course meal for £20.00 was absolutely delicious with a very good range of items. The breakfast was delicious also. What made this weekend was the attitude of all the staff. From first arriving at the hotel our bags were immediately whisked to our rooms and every member of staff without exception seemed to be enjoying their jobs and were so polite and friendly. They are all a credit to the hotel. With thanks to Sebastian, Abdul, Mariusz and Sayed who was so kind and to all the other staff members who made our weekend so enjoyable. Nothing was too much trouble for them. I cannot recall staying anywhere where the staff were so diligent. We will definitely be returning. Thank you.

Stayed for 2 nights with an amazon deal. Gorgeous victorian hotel with a contemporary feel. We had a seaview room which was fab. Comfy bed, warm and cosy, nice decor. Evening meal was very good, lots of choice and a great wine list. The bar area is very inviting with a nice ambience. Breakfast was delicious with a good choice of hot and cold produce. Staff were very attentive and polite, we would recommend this hotel. Great location, a little gem.
