We stayed here for 4 nights and had a really good time. This is a busy, vibrant seaside hotel. We had a lovely room at the side with a sea view. The room was spotlessly clean and had everything you need for a very good stay. The food at both breakfast and evening meal was excellent and well cooked. The... More

Stayed 2 nights B&B. Pleased to see the hotel has been refurbished since my last visit a year ago. The staff remain friendly, helpful and attentive. Fantastic location on Southbourne sea front. Breakfast and evening meals very good too.

No serious complaints. Stayed for a few days pre-refurbishment and the service was impeccable. I love The Commodore, but wish I could make some constructive comments about the 'new' menu which, in my opinion, does not cater for vegetarians or pescatarians sufficiently. For example, no salmon available as a main meal. Also, Caesar salad - added protein chicken - fine,... More

Recently refurbished it's now an even better place to visit. Opposite the sea shore and a small shopping area (with buses into Bournemouth) 10 minutes walk inland. All rooms refurbished and with sea view! But what really sets it apart is the friendly and helpful staff both in the hotel area and the inn itself. With good reasonably prices food... More

One member of staff chatting to a friend/boyfriend at the end of the bar, no acknowledgement at all, no lager on draught, just a smirk when I showed my displeasure. May have had a refit but service and staff still the same old no care for customers!
