This Stag Company favourite is just a five minute stroll from Bournemouth town centre and the same distance from the beach. The rooms are clean and comfy, with hot drink making facilities, free WiFi and flat screen TVs. Towels are also included. The larger rooms can sleep up to nine guests in single beds, so you can keep the crew together from morning 'til night. The town’s nightlife is yours to explore, and you also have the option of the hotel’s own cosy bar which sells spirits, beers and wines seven nights a week (closing at 9pm at weekends).
There’s no kitchen on site, but if you stay here you can get a discount on a full English breakfast with unlimited tea and coffee at the Fairmont’s sister pub, just a minute away. It’s served until 12pm, so you don’t have to get up at the crack of dawn after a big night. There’s paid parking onsite – no need to prebook unless you want to park a coach or bus.
With the beach on your doorstep and Bournemouth’s legendary club scene less than a mile behind you, the seafront Travelodge will be a winner with the lads. This no-frills budget hotel promises a big comfy bed, 24-hour bar and mammoth breakfasts – what more could a stag party want? Big groups are well catered for too, so let the attentive staff take care of everything from travel tips to dinner. Once you’re all checked in, why not purchase an ice cold beer in the bar and plan your big night out.
Bournemouth’s beaches are famous for their golden sand and surf culture. Head to Boscombe reef for a surf lesson – it’s an ace option for large groups, getting the blood pumping and bringing everyone together. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, head back to the hotel for a shower and a burger. The town centre is a short cab ride from the hotel and once you’re there, the best nightspots are all in one place, so there’s no messing about.
Hotel Celebrity is a Bournemouth institution, where you can dine on Vin Diesel’s Pork Medallions before falling asleep in the Bowie Suite. This themed hotel is buzzy and fun-loving, just as dedicated to great service as it is to celebrity memorabilia. Choose from 55 clean and spacious bedrooms or themed suites, all with en-suite and 32” TVs. Only one mile from the train station and a ten-minute stroll from the beach, Hotel Celebrity is a sound choice for lads looking for a party, Bournemouth style.
Get together in the Birdcage Lounge bar and sink a few pints before heading into town. The garden and patio are open 24/7 to guests, so if you don’t fancy dinner in the restaurant, enjoy a burger or baguette from the light bites menu. After a long night out on the tiles, you’ll sleep well on the plush mattresses and wake up to an Elvis-sized ‘all you can eat’ hot breakfast buffet, on the house! Trust us, you won’t want to leave this place.
This traditional seaside hotel is set in the appealing East Cliff neighbourhood, just ten minutes’ walk to the town centre and pier, and a stones throw from the Blue Flag beaches of Bournemouth Bay. Along with the Cliffside and Cumberland, it’s part of a trio of linked hotels, which between them have some great leisure and spa facilities; as a guest here, you'll have access to them all. You can play squash, hit the gym or do some lengths in the indoor pool. There’s a spa if you want to book a massage (extra charge) and a heated outdoor pool and lido deck.
Many of the 107 rooms here have sea views or views over the town, and all have en suite bathrooms and TVs for lounging in between stag adventures. The bar Tropicana is a top spot for buying an early evening drink before you head into town for your big stag night out.
Sand in your toes and a poolside beer in your hand, what else does a stag need? The Halmark hotel is pretty much on the beach, give or take a few steps. This swish pad welcomes you with south-facing terraces and a heated outdoor pool, perfect for chilling out and waiting for the boys to arrive. If your stag party is beach bound, there really is no better place to stay. Catch a wave, check out the surf chicks or head to the Oceanarium – guests can also use the gym and sauna at the adjacent Menzies hotel for free, so you’ll be well prepped for your night out.
Only a ten-minute walk into town and you’ll be in the heart of Bournemouth’s party scene. A mix of trendy surf bars, classic seaside pubs and banging clubs mean one night out probably won’t be enough. Rooms at the Halmark are smart, spacious and come with an en-suite bathroom as standard. Sleep off those hangovers in the super-comfortable beds and don’t worry if you miss breakfast, the brasserie serves up a blinding three-course Sunday lunch.
