3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Room was nice lovely view from balcony but obviously this reflected heavily in price. Bathroom quite old fashioned & small compared to room. Toilet system dipped all night! Breakfast was an absolute joke waited over 20 mins to get to buffet & half the food items not relished quick enough so a constant wait brought plates of about 20 sausages... More

5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

A flying business trip but will definitely be back for pleasure - from arrival to departure staff were tentative and friendly, my room was clean, comfortable with the most stunning sea view - absolute bonus! My only comment would be on the 'ambience' of the bar area where we had an evening meal, lights were a bit too bright, no... More

We've just enjoy a real getaway from it all stay at the Saunton Sands Hotel. Enough to do just in the hotel and on the beach for a two night stay. Lovely friendly staff, great food, stunning views. Highly recommended.

Have stayed here many times before initially on business but also since retiring a few years ago. I most like the hotel's elevated position overlooking a magnificent stretch of beach and the views from the restaurant and lounge. The decor is Art Deco with some lovely ornaments and pictures. The staff are all friendly and attentive and try hard to... More

The view from our room was matched by the brilliant and friendly staff, who just couldn't be more helpful! Very good food, and extremely clean and impressive room! Over all an amazing experience. I would definitely come again and I highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

We were on a golfing holiday, playing at Saunton Golf Course, and this hotel is ideally placed which is why we booked it. However it surpassed our expectations, the single rooms were very comfortable, we had a very enjoyable evening meal in the lounge and a good breakfast which was included in our room rate.

Thanks for your glowing review. As you say we are ideally located next to Saunton Golf Club, and I hope that you managed to use our pool and sauna to relax after your game? I hope that you will return again very soon - Anthony Kingdon More

This time my visit was with an extra burden as I was recovering from a fractured ankle and could only hobble around. Not able to walk the beach or the dunes I had to satisfy myself with the Sauna, the fabulous indoor pool and a good book. Such a hardship.!!! The staff were extra attentive even bringing a bucket of... More

Excellent 4* restaurant, knowledgeable wine waiter/sommelier. All the staff are welcoming but know their jobs well. If you want to surf this is a popular beach or Croyde is around the corner. The strand below the hotel is 4-5 miles long and there are sanddunes to walk amongst

A great hotel with a warm and welcoming feeling. The food was good with the breakfast being the best. We ate in the restaurant and the Terrace bar and would say the more relaxed Terrace was a better choice food-wise. The staff were warm and welcoming. Gemma the trainee was genuine and polite and nothing was too much trouble. The... More

Stayed at SSH before and loved the location - however recent visit left us flat. Bathroom poor: plumbing not working & dirty. Bedroom décor showed it's constant use. No shower for 24hrs. After a 5 hour drive we would have liked to have a shower before we went down to dinner - sadly not possible - no exchange of room... More

Thank you for your review. I am somewhat disappointed that you felt that the bathroom was of a poor standard. The bathroom was recently refurbished completely, therefore I am surprised that you felt this way. On hearing of your issues with the shower, I personally contacted our plumber to explain the situation. On his advice, I spoke to yourselves personally... More
