    Comfortable but improvements can be made

    Overall stay was ok and the bed was very comfortable. Location is great too and very quite at night for a good nights sleep. The welcome pack is more of a disclaimer pack as I asked why our room hadn’t been cleaned and we needed our bin changed especially important when you have a 14 month baby. The reply from reception said that it’s all explained in the welcome pack that our room wouldn’t be cleaned for 3 days! Our bin was changed after asking but I do not like how information is hidden within a “welcome pack”. The hotel could be more accommodating as well to guest check in. Even if rooms were ready no one was allowed to check in until 4pm. I don’t know if these rules are in place because of covid but it felt the hotel is using the rules to cost save instead of providing a better service.

  • 8.0.Very good

    We have stayed at the Chine before. It is clean and for breakfast there was a good choice. Evening meal choices much more limited, even with a scant choice of chef's special. Reception was not always staffed and check in, under Covid 19 restrictions, could have been organised better. Everyone was queuing inside at 4pm. We should have been able to check in on arrival and been given a number so that at 4pm, we just stated our number and could have been given our key, having completed check in formalities earlier.

    Lovely stay

    We have stayed at the Chine several times before and it didn't disappoint. The food was excellent and the rooms were comfortable. The only down-sides were check-in was a bit chaotic, with a long queue for the desk. One of our rooms wasn't ready at 4pm and other guests were experiencing the same problem. I really think housekeeping should be organised (or well-staffed) enough to be finished on time. The other disappointment was it was difficult to book a slot to use the pool as the hotel was busy and we were only there 2 days, but that is more Covid's fault than the hotel's. We went to the beach instead.

    Check in a bit chaotic considering its such a late check in you would think everything would be more organised.

    Lovely stay at The Chine Hotel

    Enjoyed our stay at The Chine Hotel. Lovely position by the beach. Had a sea view room with a balcony which was lovely. Used the outdoor heated pool which was lovely and warm, even in the rain. Dinner was also great. Staff very pleasant. Would stay here again.

    Great break (staycation) away

    Despite covid, the hotel made us very welcome and looked after us during our week at the hotel. Regularly supplying extra teas / coffees / biscuits for the room et cetera. The outdoor pool was really warm, with plenty of loungers dotted around for those using the facilities, both at the pool and throughout the gardens.

    The Chine Hotel 2 day stay

    When we arrived at 3pm for a 2 night stay we were made wait until 4pm to check in so we went and had a drink at the bar not cheap and wine was sub standard we didn't finish it. Checked into our room which was OK. Went out and came back in the evening to find we had had no heating had to go to reception to get a portable heater which was really disappointing. Heating was never fixed also the hotel phone in our room did not work a safe guarding issue was reported but never fixed. We paid £760.00 for 2 rooms we got a 10% refund manager was friendly. We will not return to this hotel.
