Convenient seafront location
In these difficult times with Covid, the Commodore has it sussed with self service check in and owut and measures in place to have a safe break. As a dog owner they allow pets. Free easy car parking in front of the hotel was an added bonus. Only disapointment was breakfast was not avaliable, but its convenient locations offers plenty of alternatives.
