“Very nice”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

I stayed at this hotel unexpectedly when at a wedding at the hotel and a room became available when other guests were unable to stay. After the wedding (that was very well done by the hotel), I went to my enormous room. It wasn't as plush as one of the refurbished rooms I saw, but was just as comfortable.

The King size bed (and another two singles) was comfortable, the room was clean. The bathroom was slightly dated in terms of decor and the waste water digester thingy was a little loud, but otherwise was clean, functional and comfortable. We were on the forth floor (there is a lift) and had fantastic views over the park in the middle of town.

Ignore any reviews saying that the staff were non-existent or unpleasant. The staff were wonderfully pleasant, helpful and easy to find.

The breakfast was simple but tasty and service was quick.

I didn't pay to stay (hazah!), so can't comment on the value for money, but was just as comfortable as any other hotel I've stayed in.

While there is still a lot of work to do in terms of the plant, this hotel is one of the friendliest and most hospitable at which I have stayed. The owners and staff could not have been more helpful, the food was first rate and the location ideal. The staff worked very hard on a weekend when the hotel was full to bursting and I suspect they can cater equally well for individual holidays, groups and conferences and congresses. Certainly superb value for money.

A two star hotel with a five star heart! Another Welsh Bridge Union National competition filled the Hotel for the weekend and put a lot of pressure on the owners and staff. There may be a few niggles and some improvements need to be made; but for value for money and the personal attention from the owners the venue is unbeatable.

We will be back again soon.

Lovely hotel. Easy to find, simple to park. I was in a fourth floor room with a great view. It was large and comfortable, with walk in wardrobe and ensuite. For the price it was extremely good value. I would happily stay there again.

The Hotel Commodore was a very friendly and homely place to stay . Our room was lovely . Very clean . Plenty of amenities such as TV tea & coffee . A small table and chairs comfy bed with plenty of pillows and cushions . The food was excellent also the breakfast had more than enough choice for anyone . Children were catered for too. Very friendly and helpful staff.. Andrea and Debbie were very friendly owners . I have already booked a return visit .

Used the hotel when attending a dog show at Builth Wells. No one available on reception when we arrived so had to ask at the bar... and waited quite a while a for someone to show an interest in us. Eventually given our room keys and told where to find the room - not shown! We were on the ground floor at the back of the hotel. The room was FILTHY ... hadn't seen a vacuum in weeks. The bedding was horrible, cheap and nasty. Mattress was saggy and uncomfortable and the whole place was tatty and grubby. HUGE spider in a dirty bath ... the bathroom and loo didn't look if they had been cleaned in ages either. Felt like we were 2nd rate guests ... but no reduction in the price!

Room Tip: Don't use the rooms on the ground floor ... don't know what the other rooms are like

Dear Guest

I am very surprized to see that this reveiw has taken almost a year for you to post and in October 2012 we had only been in the hotel for a number of weeks.

Since taking over the hotel we have made many improvements in many areal so perhaps if you are going to post descriptions of our hotel that are over a year old, you could have give us the curtosey of actually revisiting the hotel which will then have allowed you to post a more factually and upto date post. For your informaation, since last October every room in that part of the hotel has been completely refurbisehd and nearly all the rooms have had brand new beds so that post you have writtens is completely inactuare and therefore I will be ask tripadvisor to take down this post.

Interestingly you have not posted any reveiws of other hotels ever, so why I wonder have you waited so long to place this review and after such a long time.

We stayed for 2 nights while working in Wales and arrived late after a long day.We were immidiatelly made feel welcome and our room was fresh and very clean.I believe the hotel has recently been taken over and the new owners are really trying hard.The breakfast was excellent and the hotel bar was open late which was nice to get a couple of drinks after a long day.The bar staff were cleanly presented and well mannered.
There were 3 young lads working the morning shift serving breakfast etc and again they were excellent which is nice to see youngsters with good manners and a good work ethic.
Overall i was delighted with the service we recieved and would recommend the Commodore to anyone but especially to young families as it was not snooty and was friendly.
