We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights and found the rooms comfortable and the staff very helpful. The hotel is a couple of minutes walk from the V&A so in a great location. Nice bar area and breakfast was plentiful.

The Commordore is a very short 5 minute walk to the waterfront. The staff was very friendly. The room was always cleaned. There were 2 issues one of which I don't think that they'll do anything about, The warm food at the breakfast buffet was truly cool to cold except for the omelet station. The second was that the shower door would not swing out towards us and they had to fix it. It happened again but we didn't say anything because we were leaving just a few hours later.
