The Chine Hotel is a Victorian-style property set in three acres of landscaped gardens on the edge of East Overcliff, overlooking the Boscombe Surf Reef. Boscombe Pier is an 8-minute walk away, and the main shopping areas of The Triangle, The Square and Old Christchurch Road, are within a 10-minute drive from the hotel.

The Coastal Activity Park near Boscombe Pier has loads to do -- hire a bodyboard, walk through Boscombe Chine Gardens, try the open-air gym, go on a land train or have a game of table tennis. The Oceanarium (The Bournemouth Aquarium) is a short drive away and now houses a Penguin Beach Encounter, with a deep pool, a beach, a rockery and nesting boxes.

Back at the hotel, breakfast is served in The Gallery, with a cold buffet of yoghurt, cereals, croissants and fresh fruit, or there's the option for a full fry up from the hot buffet. Dinner is also served in The Gallery from 7-8.45pm. In the summer tables are set up on the lawns, with views out to sea.

The Bath House has an indoor heated pool, a seasonal outdoor pool, a hot tub, a sauna, a mini gym and treatment rooms (pre-booking is essential and charges apply for treatments).

Bedrooms are traditionally furnished and some have sea views and balconies.
