We stayed overnight in Commodore during a visit to Cobh and our first impression from the outside is that its very classic. Inside, we were not disappointed with the architecture, even the lifts were the old lifts (a bit concerned about its safety, but it was working well during our stay) from the 'Period'. The room was very airy and... More

After feeling unwanted in the Titanic Bar, we crossed the street to the Commodore for a light snack (two British friends were with me). It was very busy in the Commodore, partly because of the Regatta Festival on over the weekend. We were immediately taken to a table where a very friendly waitress provided us with a menu. She was...

Spent 4 lovely days in the Commodore. As other reviewers have said, it is in need of a little tlc, but this somehow adds to the character of it. The staff are excellent, always ready to assist and all done with a friendly smile. I had a room to the front with the fabulous views, a lovely big window which... More

Enjoy the charm of the historic photos and paintings on the wide stairway and halls, older furniture in cosy seating areas, high ceilings, and views of the sea and town. Everything is clean and comfortable. The staff is very helpful. My tiny room had wonderful views of the harbor, the park with band stand, sculpture, benches, and playground. I watched... More

I have been to this lovely old hotel before and love it. It may not be top notch in decor and facilities but it is amazing in its clean comfort and the huge welcome and friendly words you get from everyone on the staff. My brother and I came over to catch up with our family in Cobh. He was... More

I've taken time to reflect before writing about the Commodore ... nobody likes to hear a sad story, and I certainly don't like writing one! The Commodore hotel is a beautiful old building, of the type I truly love - wide staircases, old pics on the walls, landings with old fashioned sofas, high ceilings, and large rooms/bathrooms. The staff are... More

This hotel is right on the seafront, by the old White Star Line booking office (now the Titanic Museum) and was, apparently, pretty grand in its day. It also (we found out later) played a significant part in looking after the survivors of the Lusitania as they were brought to shore. BUT, our experience was marred by having THE WORSE... More
