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

Had a cream tea on the terrace this afternoon. The view and the scones were highly rated but unfortunately the service was a little lacking. Ordering at the reception desk was not a problem in itself but taking a phone call mid order? Not ideal. No teaspoons to stir the tea also not great. For such a sought after delight... More

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
