Fantastic place to switch off. Hotel is family run and the service stems from that. James and his staff took care of us and was always on hand to offer help and advice. Nothing was a problem and everything was done with a smile. This made the stay feel more like it was with extended family than a hotel. Keep...

Really enjoyed my solo stay in this excellent hotel. Staff are very welcoming, it's clean and pleasant, and in a lovely setting. Close to the Tarka Trail for cycling. They put my bike in secure parking overnight. Can't wait to return.

We returned for a three night break to this friendly hotel in a very comfortable room with a gorgeous view out over the water and beyond to Appledore. Daniel and Jane really make your stay enjoyable. The food was excellent too.

Lovely choice of lunch menu in bar and restaurant. There are comfortable chairs and some tables over looking the water front. We started off with a nice walk along the beach to work up an apitite. Parking is available.

The wind, it did blow, and how. It rained cats and dogs as it does but many people were enjoying the beach all the same. We were hunkered down in the Commodore restaurant for lunch. We have family lunches here now and again and it never disappoints. The service is excellent, the staff are polite, courteous and helpful. The menu...

We have spent the day at The Commodore, celebrating our wedding with family and friends. Fabulous food, and wonderful service made it a very special day. Wonderful setting, and we would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a venue for any celebration. Being able to stay, and look at the view across theatre in the morning was just the...
