Our room was of a good size with a separate room housing the shower and toilet, the washbasin was in the room. We were provided with tea/coffee making facilities . The...

Staff were really friendly and very warm and welcoming, the rooms were lovely and clean, although very warm as the pipes got hot and you couldn't turn them down, the breakfast was more than we could of hoped for with a great choice.. we will defiantly be coming back again in the summer..

Just returned from a 2 night stay at the Hotel. Was greeted by friendly staff, however the car park is very small, we were very luck to find a space. We had a room on the second floor, which was a fair size, very comfortable bed, good selection of tea, coffee and biscuits and a lovely sea view. Bathroom had...

We returned to this perfectly positioned hotel with its' lovely view of the sea as it never disappoints. The rooms are very comfortable and with a view of the sea, what more could you ask for? The staff, including the very attentive and involved manager, always strive to please. The food is splendid and good value for money. We enjoyed...

I have visited many times over the last four years and never been disappointed, although the staff has changed in the time, they are still friendly and gave good service, the food was also of a good standard. I had not visited for about six months so I was very pleased the standard was still good.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Commodore Hotel Southbourne near Bournemouth is on the Dorset cliff tops at Southbourne adjacent to the cliff lifts and Fisherman's Walk with easy access from the A31 and A338. The spectacular views across Poole bay take in Swanage to the West and Hengistbury Head and the Isle of Wight to the East. The Commodores location, close to the New Forest, and Bournemouth town centre, makes it an ideal base from which to explore Hampshire and Dorset. The Commodore was built in 1928 and was originally called Crawford's Tea Rooms. In the war it was used to house serving American airmen. In the early 50's an extension was added and it became Crawford's Bar and Hotel. Not long after that, it became The Commodore Hotel. A very popular holiday location. There is limited car parking provided by the hotel but ample on-street car parking within a few minutes walk. ... more   less
