Another faultless return. Professional and very friendly staff, view, immaculate rooms, delicious evening meal, nothing more to say we love this hotel etc. etc. Look forward to our return in December.

Another superb week at The Commodore..... staff; food; service; view; etc; etc; etc ALL great. Plenty of exercise and fresh air around the local areas were rewarded with an exquisite dinner. We cannot fault anything - hopefully we can return soon - even though our daughter's wedding will intercept an early return!!!! The restful week has given me the energy to face a busy time at work next week........

Great location. Right next to the sandy beach and with fantastic views over the estuary. We got to see the sun set over the sea 2 nights in a row (even saw the 'green flash'). Staff friendly and hotel clean. The other guests mostly elderly, which meant it was nice and quiet!

The only minus (and it was quite a big one) is that 2 out of the 3 of us had very upset stomachs on the second night of our stay. The only thing that the 2 of us had had (that the third hadn't) was soup and sorbet at the hotel. So it seems highly likely that one of those was the cause. We can't prove it of course, but I can't see what else it could have been.

Came down from london for a wedding. This hotel was recommended by friends who are frequent stayers. Nice room overlooking the estuary. Great sunsets if the weathers right. Immaculate throughout. Service is excellent, hats off to Jamie and the restaurant crew. Housekeeping staff also excellent. Food is imaginative and plentiful. Relaxing stay only marred by the weather!

Stayed on business on a sunday night so only bar food or buffet available but bar food was ++ . A bit more effort than chain hotels. Although booked through agency on business rate was given a seaview room with a large balcony and sun loungers. A very nice change from my usual business stay but the only minus was that on this occassion I was accompanied by my partner and the b&b rate of the room for 2 at twice the single rate for a double worked out a bit steep - an extra breakfast does not cost £69!! I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Room Tip: Sea facing room even at extra cost

We live nearby but have enjoyed several short stays here, most recently last weekend. The restaurant was as always exceptional and service always very friendly. The setting is beautiful, especially when sunny over the estuary, and sunsets are worth waiting for.
