Just had our third visit to the Chine.

Our kids love the amazing breakfast, the outdoor pool and the stunning grounds and location.

We love the friendly staff, the location near the beach and the traditional atmosphere in the hotel. We have wondered if we should try another hotel for our break but why change a winning formula.

A great hotel with a brilliant location and fantastic rooms. The hotel looks very grand but is very well priced with a lovely restaurant and fitness centre. The staff were very polite. The only issue was a limited parking availability.

Great location for Bocsombe beach, beautiful gardens and warm swimming pool. We had a room with sea view and balcony which was dated but large and comfortable. Breakfast was average, staff friendly and helpful. The walk through the gardens to the beach was unsuitable for prams or wheel chairs or people with mobility restrictions and all up hill on the way back.
Parking was limited although we did manage to get a space but were reluctant to use the car during our stay as we did not want to lose our parking space.
Bedroom was quiet, lift was very small an old style lift with only room for two with bags
However would return due to the location.

Room Tip: If you want a good sea view get co room on the top floor.

No parking on arrival near the hotel but there is a Chime garage area down adjacent street-(found by chance) Decor in main area and bar,restaurant is modern but the carpets on the stairs are threadbare and I couldn't get the smell of Care/nursing home away-so maybe some well placed smellies needed.The room was adequate for 2 overlooked the front entrance and got the noise outside of the wedding party guests for a while until earplugs went in.Breakfast was good quality, a buffet style-however the girls have got to get the asking for tea/coffee sorted out,all got very confusing-and also booked main meal-dont normally get asked if i want dessert at the beginning of ordering felt hurried and was told had 2 mins to decide as they were fully booked-pool is great gardens great and on the whole deserves its 3 star-you get what you paid for...

Enjoyed the stay at the Chine - great Location beautiful gardens and Spa was a delight.

Perhaps it was an off-day but the worst check-in I have ever had 3 women behind the desk and seemed so uninterested that we were there to check in extremely miserable reception. Breakfast quite the same - do staff here NEVER smile!?

As for House-Keeping, I am quite sure that most Hotels would not adhere to having there fresh sheets and towel which were dumped on the FLOOR outside the doors of rooms ready for the next guest to come in. Hygiene ? Health & Safety?

Nevertheless I would return and found the stay exceptionally well.

Room Tip: Grab a room with a Sea View
