The hotel was average
A family consisting of two adults and two 5 yr olds.
Room 105. The decor of the hotel was average. The room however was below average. The decor was dated worn out and cheap. The furniture was from the 1970s in appearance. On a plus, the room was large with sufficient storage. There were no curtains fitted and only plastic blinds. With small children this is poor as it was difficult to get them off to sleep as it wasn't dark. The hotel was very noisy overnight with little soundproofing for the doors or very squeeky floorboards. Doors were slamming. The windows overlooked the front of the hotel where the bar is situated. One could not leave windows open due to the noise. There was no air conditioning. The bathroom suite and shower were fine and clean. The decor however was poor and needs a full refurbishment. The cost of the room was over £200 for one night. In my opinion, clearly priced for the adult party groups. The room is fully adequate for this, but not for families with small children. I paid £100 less for a night in a hotel overlooking tower Bridge in London.
Very helpful friendly and polite staff ,made very welcome would recommend this hotel
Reasonably priced with well equipped rooms, good food and only 5 minute walk to Bournemouth seafront.
Enjoyable stay and would consider using again.
Fun place to stay
I stayed for 4 nights in this fun place.
The food was good and I was comfortable eating alone. The room was quite small but very clean and lovely hot water in the shower.
Clean & comfortable
The room was nice, clean and comfortable.
The staff very friendly.Breakfast was OK if you got it fresh from the kitchen if not it cooled off very quickly.An evening meal we had of Shepherds pie with veg was disappointing the veg being boiled potatoes!. ( with Shepherds pie) and big portion of courgette ugh. with a smattering of something . The sweet i would say was fair.Also it took 3 attempts to get the bill right.
Not an "A" list celebrity!
Tired rooms with peeling paper and 6 pictures of a celebrity (in our case Raquel Welch).
Kettle was on a table but nowhere near a plug so had to put it on floor near tv to use it. Floorboards extremely creaky so felt sorry for people below our room. Food good but completely self-service with even the tea and coffee help yourself from flasks - a step too far perhaps.
Staff were all friendly, helpful and polite. The hotel was very clean.
No frills value for money
It was my second stay at this hotel.
I needed a clean place to sleep with a good breakfast and free parking close to the sea and the town when I visited friends. I was able to check in early. My room had a bath with a shower over, tea/coffee making facilities and there was a water cooler with filtered water in the corridor near my room. This hotel is not grand or lavish but far better value for money than a Travelodge and more comfortable. I will use it again girl my next visit.
Good value for money, friendly staff and good location close to beaches and centre.
Very nice and kind staff but unfortunately the hotel is in desperate need of refurbishing.
Dated decoration and the Celebrity theme is just framed photos of mostly actors on the walls. The room and bathroom were clean but water temperature from the shower fluctuated from hot to cold and vice versa. Good breakfast and dinner with very nice waiting staff. The hotel is situated a few minutes from the pier and shops and restaurants which is great as you can park your car in the free hotel car park and walk.
Mid-week stay at the hotel Celebration.
We stayed in the Sophia Loren room (room 237) on the second floor.There was no problem with room access as there was a reliable lift in hotel.Room was tired but very clean and well serviced throughout stay.Breakfast was good and plentiful although a small microwave would be handy just to pep it up a bit.
Im sure the staff would have heated ours up if we had asked.From the moment we arrived we were impressed by the friendliness and helpfulness off the staff which carried on throughout our stay.All said we had a good time. Good location with plenty of bus stops within a 2 to 3 minute walk at Landsdown Island.Pier about 10 minute walk downhill from hotel.
