Not a bad stay comfort wise but the food was mediocre and really there is no excuse, if you are going to do a dinner menu, do it properly and buy decent produce or don't bother. Breakfast wasn't as bad but still the over all quality was lacking. Its a shame they can't get this right as the hotel itself is very pleasant.

Dear Jasonmullen

Thank you for your review. I was pleased to read that you enjoyed your stay with us but I must admit I was a little surprised to read your comments regarding your dining. As you can read from many previous reviews the quality and service in our restaurant and Carvery is highly praised by our guests and patrons. We use locally sourced produce and ingredients in our dishes and menus and I can only apologise if we did not meet your expectations. I do hope you will return so that we can offer you the hospitality and quality that we do so pride ourselves on, should you require a dinner reservation or accommodation booking please do not hesitate to contact the hotel directly and we will be only too pleased to assist you.

Thank you for choosing the Commodore Hotel, we look forward to welcoming you back again soon

Very good staff throughout especially the duty manager & the restaurant staff. Friendly, accommodating,polite, pleasant & accommodating. The same cannot be said for the hotel. It is tired & in desperate need of refurbishment. Lots of signs warning of hot water or low pressure and even no beer! Get it sorted,don't just put signs up to fend off complaints - this is a management issue not anything to do with the staff.
The beds are lumpy (we booked 5 rooms), lighting in the rooms is impossible to read by. How are u use the wardrobes when there are bedside tables next to them?! Net curtains torn & hanging off. That's just laziness but is typical of the hotel. They may not be Able to afford a major refurb but they can do the basics.
Bathrooms are terribly dated with non matching tiles & shower rails about to fall off.
It was clean throughout though & the food is good value but don't expect top drawer nosh.
If it had not been for the staffing I would have REALLY panned this hotel. I can't see us going there again I am afraid.

The food and the service at this hotel is excellent, everyone was very helpful and polite, couldn't fault it.
The only negative is that the room we had (no. 9) was very dated and needs modernisation, the bathroom needs updating and there was a lot of noise early in the morning ( think it was from the kitchen as we was above that area)
Overall this is a nice place to stay, could do with just updating the rooms.
Thanks for a great service though.

Hello, I have been living in Weston Super Mare for a few years, I was told by my friend to try a meal at the Commodore Hotel, I am so glad I did.
The daily Carvery is all home cooked with plenty of choice, very tasty!!!
Good quality hot food at a good price.
Myself & mam go around twice a week for a meal here, I would say its the best for home cooked food in Weston Super Mare.
The staff is very friendly & polite.
The restaurant has Table Service, the only thing I could ask them to improve on is asking would we like more drinks, they take your food & drink order but seems to stop there.
Looking forward to many more meals here. Jamie JJ.
