The best thing that can be said in favour of this hotel is that it could hardly be closer to the beach. The pay-off, however, is that there is hardly any parking on site, though a fair amount in nearby streets. Style-wise, this is basically a pub with rooms, and one in serious need of renovation: I would not want... More

stayed for a night last week. The room was OK but the corridor areas were horrible, smelt of disinfectant, and the foyer area filthy and smelling of cigarette smoke. Run on a shoestring? yet it was not cheap.

We stayed here 3 nights and our second time here (3 days also in 2010). The views are good from and the room was a good size and bed comfortable although the hotel needs renovating. Reasonable value for money. Staff were helpful and friendly but seemed to be very busy even though not a lot of people around - maybe... More

Very near to beach ,beach lift, and Southbourne town,although short on restaurants quite... More

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
