“Fantastic Hotel!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

This is so far the best hotel that I have ever been in Bournemouth. It is like a home away from home. Staffs are excellent and friendly. They never failed to approach us to ask how we are. Although it's an old hotel, they maintained the cleanliness of the rooms. The location is good because it's just walking distance away from the centre and if you decide to take the bus it is just around the corner.

We have paid an affordable deal which includes all you can eat breakfast wherein you are free to take whatever you see in the buffet. To top it up, we will definitely be back here on our next visit.

Excellent welcome & brilliant first impressions from staff. Don't let the outside put you off. Everyone so friendly, you would be hard pushed to find another hotel with the same atmosphere and I've tried a lot!!
Food brilliant, rooms lovely and clean. Now comes the bad bit .. If you are unfortunate enough to have very noisy, inconsiderate, door banging until all hours occupants above you, the best you can hope for is around 4 hours sleep. Every footstep can be heard on the creaky floorboards and the walls seem paper thin.
Good value for money though and the hospitality is second to none.

Thank you Lynne B for your kind feed-back!
We may not be the best hotel in town (yet ;-) ) but our staff definitely is!!!
I've been working for the "Celebrity Family" for about 10 years and the fantastic atmosphere and friendliness of everybody is one of the many reasons I find my job to be so enjoyable.
I'm sorry your rest was interrupted by the noise of other guests, we are in the process of refurbishing the hotel and every time we renew a room we strip the old floor, put insulation material and new flooring. This has already solved the problem in the refurbished rooms and below them and will eventually make our hotel (so full of character and with a long, long history) free from any creaky floorboards.
We hope to see you again when in the area.
Best wishes,
Roberto Sbavaglia

I was in Hotel Celebrity for two night when I came to Bournemouth and I had a very good service. Comfy and clean rooms, very helpful staff service and a first class quality breakfast. The hotel is close to town center and the beach and the prices are also affordable. I recommend it to everyone.

Good job and more power to your company.

On arrival the young lady at reception was very pleasant and friendly. We had a room on the second floor which was fine. The beds were comfortable and had nice clean white bed linen on them. There was a modern TV, tea/coffee making facilities and good curtains with black out linings. The decor looked a little tired but the hotel is in the process of refurbishment. The bathroom was clean & had nice white towels. The public areas of the the hotel had recently been refurbished and looked smart & modern. Breakfast was very good and the food offered was of high quality. The location of the hotel was excellent, all the staff we encountered were very friendly & professional and a big bonus was the hotel car park. We would definitely stay here on a return trip to Bournemouth.

Friendly and very assisting staff. Clean and well operated hotel. Convenient location - walking distance, both from the beach and from the city center. We enjoyed our stay and had a couple of nice days at the beach.

The front of the hotel may not look like much, but don't be fooled! Inside the hotel is comfy, warm and welcoming. The rooms are spacious and the beds comfortable or, f you fancy staying up later, there is a stylish on site bar and restaurant. The staff were extremely helpful and polite, and the breakfast (which came included) tasty and plentiful! I especially loved finding out about the history of the hotel and its resident ghost! (information cards can be found dotted about the hotel). It is a little walk out of the centre of town, but in a lovely location right by the sea, which would be ideal for summer breaks.

Front of hotel bit off putting, could do with a facelift but once inside it was fine. Hotel in the middle of refurb but didn't cause a problem during our stay. Nice clean basic room ( not refurbed although was fine) basic clean shower room but suited our needs. Comfy bed and clean towels. Friendly efficient helpful staff. Excellent breakfast. Bar has had a great refurb, shame its not busier and promoted more. Lovely garden area. Great location 5 mins from cliff side beach and 15 mins other way to the town.
Only negative was jockeying for a space in the car park but there is free overnight parking on the road outside.
Overall great value hotel.
