“Just what we wanted”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 December 2013

We had a lovely time at Hotel Celebrity. I emailed staff before we arrived to check certain details with them and they were very quick and accommodating in their response. We had a nice meal on arrival on the Friday night. Good value and tasty. I really enjoyed the theme of the Hotel and spent quite a bit of time looking in all the rooms when the maids were cleaning to look at the different celebrity style rooms! One of the rooms we had was recently refurbished and was very stylish. The other was a little dated but quaint. It was very clean and had all the necessary facilities we were after. They even gave us drinks vouchers as guests so we could enjoy a discount off the price of drinks at the bar. For the money we paid, we thought it was very good value and had a lovely time.

Dear Hanna B,
Thank you very much for your lovely review!
We are all so delighted you found with us just what you wanted and we all hope you have found with us a home away from home too!
It's great to know you had an enjoyable stay and enjoyed our celebrity themed décor. All our room are clean to very high standards and, if you want to treat yourself to a stylish superior room, we can arrange that from as little as £5 per person per night. Visit our official website for best rates and offers or call us on 01202 316316 to book a specific room, so many to chose from...Beatles or Rolling Stones?....Madonna or Lady Gaga?
Best wishes,
Roberto Sbavaglia

There are better hotels in Bournemouth but for the price paid this one is good value. The celebrity theme is saturated throughout and what with the Tony Hancock connection you will find show biz interest in abundance. The owners have invested heavily in the ground floor facilities, restaurant, bars, breakfast room are all of a high standard, the bedrooms are now gradually being upgraded in the same manner. Great location for a short stroll into town, theatres and cinemas. Excellent choice for breakfast but fried could be a hotter.

Room Tip: We did request a quiet room before travelling and the reception did oblige.

Thank you marlo876 for your comment!
We are glad you found the Hotel to offer good value and we hope to welcome you again in the near future. We are also happy you contacted us to request a quite room, it's always a real pleasure to oblige to our guests' requests to make sure we can provide you with what you need!
My apologies if the breakfast could have been hotter, we are now cooking it in smaller quantities so it is fresh at all times, only during week-end we tend to cook a bit more as we have more than hundred guests, so to avoid waiting for your cooked breakfast. Thank you for your feed-back, it really means a lot to us.
Kindest Regards,

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.
