Reasonably priced for the area and in a nice location but very stuffy atmosphere in this dated hotel. Wifi only available in the bar. Noisy air-con or extraction plant outside window of rear facing rooms.

It’s always a pleasure to stay at The Commodore Hotel at Instow. I have stayed here many times and the high standards are maintained throughout and this visit was no exception. My journey to the West Country was such that I needed to stop over in the area of North Devon for one night and where better than the coastal... More

My husband and I have just spent a weeks holiday in Appledore. We decided to have lunch out one day and ended up at this very friendly hotel. I had Chicken Curry and my husband had the Fish and Chips. Both were extremely well cooked and my curry very taste. We sat in a dining room looking out to the... More

This delightfully positioned, family owned and managed hotel continues to impress. The views across the Torridge estuary to Appledore and out to sea are first rate - a beach facing room is recommended. We stayed for 2 nights on D, B and B terms and enjoyed all meals. The wine list was varied and offered decent value.

What a lovely hotel. Lovely staff with a beautiful view. They even let us park our minibus in the car park free of charge, unfortunately you do not see generosity like that very often. Highly recommended and a big thank you.

We found the... More

I can thoroughly recommnend this hotel for its friendly service and attention to detail. I was in Instow because my son was playing for the U17 Devon County Cricket Team and we travelled up for two consecutive days for a match against Surrey. On both days I went to the hotel for morning coffee and pastry and returned at lunch... More

We had an evening meal here and were amazed by the quality of the food, the presentation and the professionalism of the staff. Every course was delicious with top quality food, beautifully prepared and presented. The staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble. All areas inside and outside the hotel are immaculate and the views of the beach... More
