Family Hotel Bournemouth


The perfect family staycation!

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 features 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.

We offer a variety of family rooms sleeping from 3 – 5 people. We also have interconnecting rooms available if you want that bit more space! 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. Plus children under 3 go FREE when staying with their parents . Just ask our reception team for more details.

With our large indoor pool, spa bath, free computer use with Wi-Fi and Children’s Games Room including:

a Nintendo Wii,
Chess set,
Pool Table,
Table Tennis Table,
Mini Kitchen,
Board Games and more….

There is always plenty to do around the hotel – which is why we can count five generations of some families returning to the Riviera year after year. There are also lots of places to explore in Dorset. Please see our Dorset Attractions page or have a look through our blog
