“A wonderful place to stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014

All the rooms are themed around celebrities. We stayed in the Ken Dodd room! It was very clean, modern and comfortable. The reception staff were more than helpful, happy to see that our stay was the best it could be. The food was excellent - varied breakfast. The hotel itself was located within a short walk of the beach and town. We would thoroughly recommend a stay here, a really lovely hotel.

All the rooms and public areas celebrate celebrities (real celebs not Big Brother types) we were in the David Bowie room in what appeared to be the 'rock n roll' wing other parts featured actors and film stars past and present, you get the idea. Anyway it makes this excellent hotel a little more interesting than your average place to stay, It is handily situated both for the beach as it is a short walk from the East Cliff lift and for the town centre.

The hotel restaurant serves good food nicely presented and if you want to eat out.a ten minute walk towards the back o town takes you to a street full of restaurants of many types.

Our room was spotlessly clean and well appointed as is the whole hotel with comfortable bars and a beautifully furnished TV lounge. This was our second visit and we wouldn't stay anywhere else when in Bournemouth. All the staff are friendly and helpful, Roberto and his team clearly know exactly how to run a good hotel. A special thanks to Roberto and Katie (they know why) and that charming waiter from Sicily ( my wife told me to put that bit in)

Stayed for one night last Saturday. My husband and I had the Sophia Loren room and our sons had Sylvester Stallone! Really quirky but great fun. Excellent location with a very short walk to the lovely beach and town. Reception staff were very friendly and helpful. We only booked a couple of days before and asked for a refurbished room, but sadly they were all booked. However our rooms were ok and very clean if not a little dated. The bed was very comfy and the breakfast was lovely. Would recommend.

Just had a 3 night stay in a twin bedded room in this hotel. Very well run hotel with friendly, pleasant staff. The hotel was spotlessly clean and the room likewise. We were lucky to have a newly refurbished room and could not fault it. We ate in the Sherlock Holmes restaurant on the three nights and the home-cooked meals were excellent. Recommended.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room, weekends can be a little noisy we have been told.

The hotel is bizarrely decorated but is cheap and cheerful.

The staff were straight forward but breakfast was only available from 8.00pm on Saturday which was a bit too late for me.

Overall it was good for the price. I'd probably stay there again but Bournemouth is full of similar places.

Thank you Homersontour for your review!
We appreciate your comment on our "bizarre" decor.....I would say it is "eclectic" and "quirky", still.....we know where you are coming from: we are definitely not a typical Hotel in Bournemouth and we are quite proud of this! We offer great rates even if just one road back from the seafront and we are a straightforward and friendly bunch!
We really hope to welcome you again when you are next in town and we are always happy to serve tea/coffee, toast, cereal, fruit to all our guests who have an early start!
Book direct with us on 01202 316316 and will offer you THE best rate, a 20% discount for all drinks and you get to chose your Celebrity bedroom (subject to availability)

Not only were the beds uncomfortable but the sheets were dirty. I've never met a more ignorant man than the owner, when confronted about the room his attitude was appalling. Treating me as if I were the dirt on his shoe. ONE TO AVOID

Ken R, Owner at Hotel Celebrity, responded to this review, 20 June 2014
One of the problems of being 100 yards from the college is that students are always parking in the car park which we show as reserved for hotel guests only. We reached the stage where one car was parked all day blocking in 2 other cars who had to wait for the student to come back to move his car. Enough was enough and we have appointed a company who monitor the car park and, as the new signs make clear, give parking tickets to cars that do not have parking permits, (given free to all hotel guests). This reviewer has never stayed at the hotel - he just reckons he can park here thus depriving genuine hotel guests of a place to park - and is fed up he can only now do so by paying £60 fee or going to court. Viz the nonsense he has written.
