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...

Excellent room No. 203. Food very good. Staff helpful and pleasant. Only downside was the parking - not enough. Lack of shelves in bathroom. And some parents not controlling their very noisy children. Overall the hotel has a good atmosphere, quiet and relaxing until the end of the week when the families arrived. Maybe we were just unlucky !

Just returned from a few days at this hotel. Impressed with the lovely grounds and the view of the Isle of Wight from our bedroom window. There were two lovely pools, one indoor and one outdoor which were both warmer than any we had swam in before and very relaxing. The staff, especially Angelique and Mario at reception, were very...

We stated here recently for my partners birthday. We can say we had a fantastic time. The location is great everyone was friendly and the facilities are wonderful. We will definitely be staying there again in the near future. The only slight downfall is that the rooms could do we a little upgrade as they are a bit tired and...

I have used this hotel several times previously - the last time being around 3 years ago. Since then I think the hotel has undergone some refurbishment but it has retained its quaint charm. It is a bit worn around the edges in places but the important things like the rooms are spotlessly clean. I had a single room (having...

Just had a lovely short break at The Chine Hotel. Our room was clean, spacious and airy with a great view of the gardens and outdoor pool. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the food was delicious and the gardens were beautiful. We especially enjoyed the outdoor hot tub. There is a lovely gated area with a pond and...

A great stay at The Chine. Excellent customer service, really friendly staff. Everything you need for an enjoyable and relaxing stay with a young family. Convenient for the beach too! Hotel, whilst some areas are in need of updating, was very clean and the gardens extremely well kept.

We got married at this hotel in May last year and were so happy with every aspect of our wedding day from pre-planning right through to the morning after. All the staff are very attentive, Karen in particular was very accommodating of our choices and nothing was too much trouble for her. People who attended still tell us what a...

Just stayed at the chine for weekend booked through Secret Escapes. We were in room 115 which was a large room. On previous visits had stated in 120 and 119. The let down of this room (115) was bathroom door did not shut and chairs on balcony were black with dirt. The food was very good and staff very attentive....
