Welcome to The Commodore Hotel, Instow


Located within the charming waterside village of Instow, near Bideford, The Commodore Hotel overlooks a fascinating and ever-changing waterfront scene.

Situated between the mouths of the Taw & Torridge estuaries, with long stretches of sandy beach, it is without a doubt one of the most unique and scenic locations on the North Devon Coastline. From our hotel you can look across to the charming village of Appledore, and we are a short distance from Bideford. You can drive to the town, or cycle or walk along the picturesque Tarka Trail for a more scenic route. There is lots to explore in the local area around Instow.


We do look forward to welcoming you soon.

Customer Testimonials

Just wanted to say a big thank you for our lovely lunch today in the new Strandfield Grill. Love the new look to the restaurant, but as ever, everyone is so nice & we are always so well looked after. Food was scrummy - loved the Sharing Platter. Great views across the estuary, tide completely out. Just love the place - thanks again x

We are enjoying a wonderfully restful break here to celebrate my husband’s birthday with friends. The hotel is spotlessly clean and comfortable and the staff cannot do enough to help us and make us feel valued.
