We have just had 3 nights at the Commodore , and yes the whole place could do with up dating , new curtains and a bit of colour would go down well. Over all the room was very clean with a good supply of tea ,coffee and hot chocolate, the biscuits they leave on the tray are great. The breakfast... More

We have been to the Commodore regularly for a simple pub lunch but not for about 18 months. Up till now it's been fine - basic but decent portions and prices and service. Not now. Service - eventually. Tables and chairs not very clean. Food - smaller portions, higher prices. But the killer was the bar maid using her fingers... More

The hotel has a wonderful position on the cliff top at Southbourne but that is where it ends. The hotel is tired and in need of renovation, exterior is tatty and inside is tired and dated and in need of a good clean. On arrival the staff were friendly and took our order efficiently. However, it took 40 minutes for... More

Called in this morning for relaxing coffee. The bar area is grim. Dirt on the base of the bar could be scraped off with a knife. Tables are sticky and 'leather ' chairs revoltingly stained. We had to move to the wooden ones for cleanliness sake but the table was still sticky. Please buy some new trays for service- current... More

We stayed here in early may and will be going back next week. We personally think it is very good value for money and found the room very clean and the staff very helpful. I must say that it hadn't changed much since my last visit in 1974 but that only adds to it's charm!! Overall it is very good... More

Viewing this hotel from the outside is deceptive to say the least. Upon entering into the bar area changed our opinions immediately even more so when entering our room. The exterior looks tired and was definitely a hidden gem. Our room was plainly decorated with all the amenities you needed to make your stay pleasant,TV,Wi fi,hair dryer (hidden in a... More

The room had a lovely view of the sea....that is my only positive. The doors were ridiculous heavy with silly handles which meant by the time you managed to open them a draft from the poorly fitted windows blew it shut leaving a loud echoing slam. The dining area, a pub bar, stunk of dogs and the carpet was filthy... More

This was the first hotel we stayed at in England. The staff were very friendly, the room was comfortable and the breakfast which was included was fantastic. Just accross the road from the sea it was a pleasant place to stay at a reasonable rate.

We have just returned from spending 4 nights here and had a great time. The hotel is tired in places but is currently undergoing improvements. The manager Justin and his team work well as jacks of all trades, and master of most, (one day we came across someone cleaning the carpet and was later served breakfast by her and finally... More
