Family Hotel Bournemouth


Bournemouth is an ideal location for family holidays and Alum Chine makes it even better.
Alum Chine is famous for its Blue Flag, Award-winning sandy beach, its beautiful wooded valley of the Chine spanned by a splendid and excitingly bouncy Suspension Bridge and its Green Flag award-winning Alum Chine Tropical Gardens.

Alum Chine is close to the chic shopping arcade and eateries of Westbourne and is a mere 20 minute stroll along the prom to Bournemouth Pier and town centre in one direction – or to the famous Sandbanks and Poole Harbour in the other. In the Bournemouth direction alone, there are 7 miles of golden sands and blue sea and in the summer months you can even take a trip on the Bournemouth land train.

The Chine – which is just a minute’s walk from the Riviera – is a great place to explore, climb trees or make camps and the area offers lots of opportunity for healthy outdoor fun. Branksome Dene Chine is just as close to the Riviera and offers similar adventure and interest.

The Riviera is wonderfully situated for the Chines and is conveniently centrally located between Bournemouth and Poole for all the other activities and attractions that both towns have to offer.

To make your life easier and to travel that bit lighter – We can supply cots and highchairs and have a limited amount of toddler steps, toddler bed guards and toilet seats available. Just ask our reception team on booking
