Stayed here in Nov 2013 when attending the BIC in the evening. 10 min walk to town and BIC, room clean and good nights sleep! Reception staff polite & helpful. Breakfast buffet very nice. For just over £50 for a double room - great value.

I have stayed here many times now and it just gets better and better. The staff are so friendly and always smiling. The breakfast is great and the rooms are comfortable. Add to that the interesting themes and many pictures which are always a talking point and a reason to explore the hotel. Cant wait to get back to my home from home.

Room Tip: All rooms are lovely but if you have a favorite celebrity ask if they the room its great fun lol.

Pulled up at the place and we all looked concerned. Luckily once settled we realised it was a good find. Nice friendly staff. Rooms were adequate and the best bit. It was only 5mins from town. Good reasonable find

This hotel is certainly celebrity themed with pictures on every wall of celebrities, including all the bedrooms! The owners are certainly doing their best to make the hotel different, and even provide information on the history of the building which was once owned by Tony Hancocks parents. They also say they are in the process of refurbishing the hotel and the ground floor communal areas were very spacious and pleasant.

The twin bedroom we had was on the second floor and was in need of some refurbishment. Although very clean, the wallpaper was a bit tatty & the walls had lots of old screw holes, some roughly filled with polyfilla. The mattresses were not the best but having said that we did have 3 good nights sleep. The linen and towels were nice and the bathroom had been refurbished, being quite spacious with modern fittings, a good shower cubicle and powerful shower.

Breakfast was self service with fruit juices, tinned fruit, cereals, toast and a cooked selection which could have been hotter.

The hotel is located in a quiet road and within easy walking distance to the town and beach.

This is a no frills hotel which I would recommend but do check prices. We looked on the hotel website and there were no vacancies so booked with Booking.com and thought we had a good deal. On arrival the hotel was not full & was advertising walk in rates £10 per night cheaper than we paid, and in their own info, guarantee lower prices when booking direct with the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a refurbished room.

Thank you HazydaysCoventry for your review, it is very appreciated!
It's great to know you found us quirky and enjoyed the celebrity themed decor that makes our Hotel unique and different from all the other two hundred hotels in Bournemouth.
We have now finished with the maintenance works needed for our Celebrity theme and will concentrate in upgrading our standard rooms, which can be really challenging when the Hotel is busy.
The website you checked when wanted to book direct with us was not the Hotel's official Website but a booking agency that sets up webpages that pretend to be the Hotel's own website. We have no connection whatsoever with this agency and we are doing what we can to get them closed. It is very frustrating to know they still mislead our future guests, we do hope it will all be over very soon. Booking direct with the Hotel is always the only way to get the cheapest deals and discount vouchers for all drinks. At the moment you can book direct only by calling us, but we will have the BOOK NOW option on our official website by the end of the year!
We hope to welcoming you again soon.
Many thanks from all the Staff at Hotel Celebrity!

I stayed here for one night with my wife, but wish I could have stayed longer. We stayed in a room with lots of Michael Jackson pictures on the walls! The room was a good size with very comfortable beds. There was a 32" flat screen TV and tea/coffee making facillities. The room was clean and decorated to a very good standard. The bathroom was modern and functional. The celebrity theme continued along the hall ways with lots of pictures of well known actors, actresses and singers. The Hotel has a restaurant and a bar. The self service breakfast was a full English with a wide range of choices available. The Hotel has a lot of character and makes a comfortable and interesting stay. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Dear DaveSenior,
Many thanks for your kind comments, they really mean a lot to all the staff at Hotel Celebrity.
We are glad to know you had an enjoyable stay with us and liked our celebrity themed decor that makes our hotel unique and full of character.
Check out our official website to see all the Celebrity Rooms available, so if you fancy a change from Michael Jackson and prefer Tina Turner, Cher, Madonna, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones etc. etc. give us a call and it will be a real pleasure to accommodate your request.
Kind regards,
