“1 Guide dog and two senior citizens”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

We asked for a room close to the exit to enable us to take the dog out easily- which we got. Very clean and very welcoming. Staff friendly and helpful. Garden furniture a little scruffy. Bed a little uncomfortable. Easy access to cliff and beach. Free Parking is great as we did not want to use car to go into city. Mike Myers adjacent to 'Ghost Room' was very quiet. We expected noise from bar downstairs, but there was none to disturb us. Interesting exhibits and collectables displayed well.

Room Tip: It seems rooms in the older part of the hotel are quieter. Not a large impersonal hotel nor a boutiq...

Stayed here one night as was passing through on a road trip, and this place suited me fine. A good restaurant for both dinner, and breakfast. Room was comfortable, wifi worked well. Close to the coast - walking distance. If you have a car free parking provided.

hanging some pictures on the wall doesn't make a room themed . the bed was uncomfortable and we could hear noises from all the rooms around and above. the food was good and plentiful and the staff were very helpful and polite . i did find the Tony Hancock , Sherlock Holmes and T.E.Lawrence displays most interesting and the bars are nicely decorated .

Room Tip: maybe a room on the front is quieter?

Dear Maurice K,
Thank you very much for your comments!!!
It's great to welcome during your trip to Bournemouth and we are glad you have noticed the constant improvements that take place in our hotel.
With regards to food, thank you for your appreciation and feedback! I have passed your comment to our Head Chef and we will have a meeting to discuss some menu changes that, I'm sure, will be appreciated by all our regulars who regularly dine in our Sherlock Holmes Restaurant.....BUT...I will fight to keep our lovely cream filled chocolate profiteroles as I'm addicted to them :-) :-) :-)
Thank you again for your review!!!
Looking forward to welcoming you again soon to Hotel Celebrity,

Rather a quirky type of hotel but very comfortable and value for money. Good parking also. Also I arrived a day late and they were flexible in allowing me one extra day rather than charging me for the day I missed.

We are usually quite good accommodating our guests before check in time, in this occasion we've been good checking you in ......24 hours later! ;-)
It's never a problem to refund a genuine mistake when you book direct with the Hotel, it isn't always possible when booked through agencies.

Good location and friendly staff. Stayed here mainly for location and price; would probably have chosen another hotel if we had time. Themed rooms that were clean but a bit worn down. Breakfast ok, but nothing special.

Dear pkembro,
Thank you for your review!
I'm glad you found the hotel to be conveniently priced despite its ideal location (a short stroll to town and one road back from the sea front) and we are all very grateful for your comments on our friendly staff and the clean bedrooms. Our Breakfast seems to be appreciated by the great majority of our guests who make the most of it and don't actually need lunch! We offer the traditional full english breakfast (eat as much as you like), plus potatoes and mushrooms and then unlimited helpings of coffee, tea, a wide selection of herbal teas, juices, cereal, toasts, fruits (tinned and fresh) and happy to offer scrambled eggs or poached eggs and porridge on request......I'm not too sure what you were expecting, yet still happy to know it was ok for you.
Some of our rooms are in need of some tlc and we hope to carry on with our improvement program even if we are constantly busy. It would be great to offer you a refurbished room for your next visit, it is advisable to book in advance, direct with us on 01202 316316!
We hope to welcome you again in the near future!
Thanks again for your feedback, it is really appreciated.
Kindest regards,
Roberto Sbavaglia
