Have to agree with a few people that this hotel is punching above its weight if its a 3* hotel. Clean, well looked after hotel that is facing into the seafront. Nice decor and the Staff are all very friendly and welcoming and helpful. Put altogether it is highly recommended by me and competitively priced. Room is a nice size,... More

Just got back from a 3 night stay at the Commodore. The food ranged between very good and excellent and the staff couldn't do enough for you. Lovely views across the estuary, constantly changing with the weather. Spacious and comfortable room. Yes,we'll be back.

We stayed at The Commodore again recently. Yet again everything was spot on. Room 15 well appointed to include tea making facilities and toiletries. The evening meal was plentiful well cooked and there was a choice of meals that could serve the every taste. Breakfast was the best breakfast we have tried anywhere. There was such a variety of choice... More

I am writing this review based on the experience of our visitors from Essex. We had booked our relatives into the Commodore for a family celebration and the whole time spent there was amazing. Our relatives were bowled over by their rooms with sea views and balconies, the food was of fantastic quality and all the staff were friendly, helpful... More

We have just made a return visit to the Commodore Hotel. It was wonderful. The accommodation, food, staff and service continue to be first-class. It's hard to say what we like most. Evening meals are high on the list. The hotel certainly has great chefs and menus are superb.

Beautiful hotel set on the beach, amazing high level of cleanliness, seafront room was beautiful, staff super and food lovely. Very well run hotel and will spoil you if you let them know you are staying or visiting for a special occasion. Highly recommend staying here. Would be even better if it had a swimming pool for the days it... More

My Husband and I visited the Resaurant with our Friends as it was recommended to us. The service was excellent from start to finish we were greeted at the door with a friendly smile and it was faultless from then onwards. The food was excellent and great value for money. Well done to all the staff concerned. Will definitely return.

Did the trip between Christmas and New Year a couple of years ago - so decided to do it again this year (fingers crossed for the weather as we have a reasonably long journey). Arrived to beautiful and sunny, but cold, weather - warmed up by the usual Commodore welcome - on our 3rd visit in 2014 :) Again nothing... More

My wife and I have stayed numerous times at The Commodore but I have not completed a review previously. At the end of December 2014 we had three nights in a first floor room overlooking the estuary. It was just prior to the regular "Christmas Break". The hotel was clean, the staff friendly and attentive but without being "over the... More

Had a great Christmas lunch with my work mates. Four course for £19 and I must say very good value for money (we have already decided to go back next year) excellent sevice attentive without being overbearing. Food looked good and tasted as good. Table layout impressive, just could not fault it. 10/10.
