Blending a coastal location with three acres of lush gardens, Chine Hotel mixes Victorian style with modern flourishes. A 5-minute drive away from Bournemouth’s centre, this hotel is also a starting point for exploring the sandy shores of the South Coast or the Boscombe Pier, about a 10-minute stroll away. The classic rooms of this hotel are decked with plush beddings, neutrally coloured wallpapers and views of the estate’s gardens that extend out to the sea. The Sea View Restaurant showcases a menu made of local and seasonal produce, including fresh fish and meat cuts as well as vegetarian options, all paired up with a peek at the ocean. Draft beers, cocktails and light bites await visitors in a setting filled with bespoke furnishings and artwork, at the Gallery Bar. Guests can dive into a heated pool designed in Roman style, or break a sweat with the help of a cardio workout, while relaxation can be sought in the sauna or hot tub.
