Stayed at Saunton Sands Hotel this weekend whilst playing a competition at Saunton Golf Club. The hotel is a slightly faded Art Deco gem that you could easily see on a TV detective show. Dinner was good and breakfast reasonable. Impressive live entertainment on a Saturday night. If you are a family looking for a surfing holiday in comfort I... More

The previous reviews suggested Saunton Sands would be a great place to visit for a holiday. My experience staying a couple of weeks ago in the Hartland self catering apartment with 4 adults and 3 young children was very different. The children, 2 aged 7 and one 5 had a wonderful time! They were entertained throughout the day by the... More

We have just returned from a wonderful 2 night stay at the Saunton Sands Hotel. What a luxurious, family friendly hotel. All the staff went out of their way to make myself, my husband and our three young children feel welcomed, pampered and entertained. The indoor and outdoor pools were both really warm and clean, the children's playroom and entertainment... More

Recently, for our Wedding Anniversary, my wife and myself booked afternoon tea on the sun terrace and can honestly say we had a wonderful experience. With the sun beaming down on the spectacular beach below we were treated to an experience we will never forget. After being directed to the sun terrace by the charming barman (Marsio), we were then... More

Had a wonderful stay with a few minor comments: 1) For those who are on 'quasi holiday' and need access to wifi for work -- this is not the place. Terrible internet accessibility; 2) Restaurant menu needs to be more innovative. Was a bland selection; 3) Breakfast offering needs to be improved. Puréed scrambled eggs -- never good. Uncooked tomatoes... More

This is a hotel that gets everything right and makes a very enjoyable stay. I had a fantastic week here and would recommend it to anyone. There is a very warm pool, excellent food, children's entertainment and, of course, very good access to one of the best beaches in North Devon.

We only went to this hotel for afternoon coffee but were seriously impressed by the attentiveness of the staff. Everyone we came into contact with could not have been more courteous or helpful. We were treated like VIP's even though we were not residents. The hotel itself is very plush and you feel as if you are really spoiling yourself... More

On the plus side, throughout our stay the staff were unfailingly helpful, friendly and charming. The views are stunning, the food is fine (though a very long wait for our food in the Terrace restaurant in the evening), but the self-catering apartments (two of them) were a real disappointment. I had to buy ear plugs because of the noise from... More

Just spent one night here as a treat for my Mum who was recovering from a recent illness. Staff treated her like a queen, were so kind, made it very special. The room was beautifully decorated, abeit a bit small for the money. The breakfast was delicious as well. Had cream tea on the terrace too. Would love to go... More
