I stayed with a friends two nights in "The Chines Hotel". Steve and Shannon were wonderful host and their house is lovely. Thanks for your warm welcome and for your kindness.
The Chines is situated in a quite area but still close to the sea and amenities. The hotel itself is clean and well-kept with lots of small touches that make a difference to your stay.
Steve and Shannon are very accommodating and provide a friendly and homely place to stay. They have lots of retuning guests, which is always a good sign!
Overall, great value for money
I loved staying at The Chines Hotel so much! I truly had a wonderful time here and will definitely come back. The location was great because it was only a ten minute walk to the beach - and that is ten minutes through a really lovely forest. In the other direction it was ten minutes to Westbourne with lots of restaurants and shops and everything you needed. Bare in mind though that the area in Bournemouth generally goes quite up and down so it can be a little exhausting to walk up the stairs from the forest to the street where the hotel is. ;) I loved the quiet and peaceful mood and slept very well here. Everything was as described and shown on the photos and Shannon and Steve were lovely hosts! Breakfast was fantastic as well!
A very nice place to stay in. Comfortable, quiet and close to the beach and to local buses.
Steve and Shannon are lovely people to stay with and make you very much feel at home.
They spoil you with individually prepared English breakfast and warmheartedness.
I felt vey lucky to have come across this place and to have had the chance to meet these nice people.
A very nice place. Perfect location for touring and also just 10 min pleasant walk to the beach through a forest lane. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Lovely little garden with a heated swimming pool was a real bonus. Thank you, Steve and Shannon.
The hotel was very well situated according to my activities. Easy reach from Heathrow.
The place is comfortable, clean, calm ......Shannon and Steve have been extremely nice and helpful.
A place to recommend !
We had a truly brilliant weekend at the Chines Hotel. It is so conveniently located near the beach and Steve and Shannon are such friendly and welcoming hosts. Our favourite part was being able to swim in the pool when it looked like the weather was going to turn. We will definitely be back!
The Chines Hotel is a lovely little B&B located about 10 mins walk from the beach up Alum Chine. Steve and Shannon were very nice, friendly hosts and the room had all the mod cons, including TV and a fridge. The parking was handy for me too as I was working a little out of town. I'd definitely consider staying here again should I return and would recommend Steve & Shannon to anyone who is looking for friendly, convenient, well priced accommodation whether in Bournemouth for business or pleasure.
Our stay could not have been more perfect & this was all down to the hospitality of Steve & Shannon. They were more than accommodating, letting a large group of us treat the B&B as a home - from a wonderful BBQ in the garden, to re-arranging the breakfast room to let us all eat together. Just a stones through from the beach, and a mere 10 minutes from the town centre, this was the perfect location to combine both relaxation and more energetic activities! I couldn't recommend them enough.
Steve and Shannon were incredibly welcoming and helpful to all of us. They went out of their way to make us feel at home during our short stay. Breakfast was awesome and they didn't mind keeping the coffee coming! Great place to stay with kids in tow. Steve and Shannon made up special beds for all the kids, had kid-friendly place settings and cereal.
The hotel is charming and the location can't be beat. A nice stroll to town and beach. We would stay here again and highly recommend it to all.
