Good views and hotel gardens, helpful staff and well equipped including two pools, unfortunately our stay was short but the location was comfortable and good access to the sea front. Unfortunately our impression of Boscombe high street were not great, but for a sea focused break without staying in Bournemouth The Chine was ideal, a fun old fashioned lift, but...

Just back from spending a couple of nights here and have to say we loved it. Staff friendly and welcoming, hotel itself very pleasant the gardens are lovely. Would recommend and revisit. We didn't eat in the hotel apart from breakfast which was very nice as we went out.

We always check Trip Adviser if we are planning to stay somewhere new. We have stayed in FJB hotels before, namely The Haven & we have a booking at Sandbanks later in the year. The difference with this trip is we booked a dog friendly room, we were told at the time of booking that such rooms are in a...

Looked at this hotel online and said cheapest rates when booking direct. We didn't find this to be true. We stayed 2 nights, and found the hotel to be pleasant enough with plenty of facilities - some need some tlc, but generally clean and tidy. On Saturday morning breakfast was a shambles, no staff, tables or food. Emmy appeared to...

Just back from 2 nights at The Chine Hotel. Stayed B&B, breakfast was great value for money. Room clean and comfortable. Parking is a little strange, the car park at the hotel is tiny but you can park outside some other buildings next to the hotel. Cars seemed to parked all over the place! Not really a problem though. Great...

I booked a weekend break for my partner's birthday via Virgin Experience - would highly recommend the helpful people I spoke to who helped me book. It's as simple as booking online which is secure, you get given a voucher and the number you need to call. You print the voucher off before you come and that's it!! Now onto...

Stayed here for one night, was tempted to stay longer. The room was a good size and the view absolutely beautiful. Over familiar pigeons, but birds will be birds. Room was clean and quiet. Access to the bathroom needed careful manoeuvring as it was a bit tight in terms of doorway space. However, low bath was good for me as...

A very impressive Victorian Hotel booked with Expedia website. We stayed for one night but decided to go into Bournemouth for dinner. Room fine but spoiled by noise of extract fan in bathroom which stayed on all night despite me looking for an off switch! - buffet breakfast expected but due to low occupancy had to ask for full English...
