My wife and I have stayed numerous times at The Commodore but I have not completed a review previously. At the end of December 2014 we had three nights in a first floor room overlooking the estuary. It was just prior to the regular "Christmas Break". The hotel was clean, the staff friendly and attentive but without being "over the... More

Had a great Christmas lunch with my work mates. Four course for £19 and I must say very good value for money (we have already decided to go back next year) excellent sevice attentive without being overbearing. Food looked good and tasted as good. Table layout impressive, just could not fault it. 10/10.

I stayed at the Commodore Hotel in Instowe over Christmas. From the moment I arrived to the point of leaving I found a welcome and friendly hotel. Nothing was to much to make my stay as good as home from home. This is a family run hotel and Garry the father and James his son make sure that all their... More

My wife and I stayed here for just one night. The hotel has a lovely location with views across the bay to Appledore. Our room overlooked the bay, and was spacious, very well appointed and maintained. Our evening dinner was excellent, as was breakfast (where orders for hot food were brought from the kitchen, the buffet was only for cold... More

We held our work christmas party here last weekend, for the second year running. A table for ten and four of us stayed overnight. The food and service were excellent as ever. Some us stayed up until late and were made to feel most welcome. Our guests all commented positively on the evening. James and his team looked after us... More

Went for lunch with a group of people whilst the hotel is a little dated the staff are excellent- food very good particularly as they were catering for some large groups-local fresh ingredients Views over the estuary make all worthwhile

We didn't book a stay here because of some of the indifferent reviews about the reported attitude towards visitors. However, whilst we were in the area we did call in for morning coffee and were made very welcome so we returned for a bar lunch, which was very appetising and filling. The public rooms were clean and appropriately fitted and... More

Stayed here as part of our anniversary celebrations in September this year. We also stayed at the Saunton Sands Hotel on the same trip and I have reviewed that hotel on tripadvisor as well. This hotel is in a great location in the charming village of Instow, the view of the estuary (the meeting place of the Taw and Torridge... More

Can't fault the Commodore hotel for food, cleanliness and friendliness. Attention to detail in restaurant was first class. Lovely views over the estuary with a large lounge to enjoy them. A great family run hotel. Help with luggage as soon as we arrived. In our room we had both shower and bath, which was a bonus. First stay, but will... More
