The only bad thing about this stay was that it for one night only. Everything was fantastic, food great, service excellent, my room was faultless with views to die for. The terrace was just beautiful in the sunshine, and I honestly could have been anywhere in the world. Bar staff were attentive and very friendly, without being at all obtrusive... More

Can't fault Saunton Sands Hotel. Courteous, helpful staff. Clean room and bathroom. Balcony over looking the sea. Would definitely stay again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend anyone. And gorgeous food!

Easily the best views in North Devon! I had a lovely stay at Saunton Sands Hotel. Everybody was really pleasant, the room was perfect and the views were just amazing. I only wish that I had more time there.

Our 3 day visit was lovely, decent room (though a bit too cluttered) with views to die for. Food in restaurant was very good, and service good. We had no problem with just wearing a shirt to dinner and as some people had dressed for a special occasion we felt it OK to have dress code. Good indoor pool, children... More

BrendHotels, General Manager at Saunton Sands Hotel, responded to this review

Thank you for your review. I'm sorry that you were unhappy with your stay. As you booked on a self-catering basis, you would need to book a table for dinner and breakfast as meals are not included. With it being Easter the hotel was especially busy when you tried to get a table. We do like to have a have... More

As grandparents having stayed here with our children nothing has changed. Service still excellent especially for young ones. One daughter treated us to a meal at Sands on the beach. The service and quality of food was disgusting and we waited three hours with young children. After complaining there was no apology only an offer of free ice creams which... More

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at Saunton Sands. Our sea view room on the 3rd floor(top) was exactly right for our us...quiet,comfortable and with spectacular views so didn't need to be luxurious. The staff varied with some being very friendly and helpful and others barely acknowledging your presence. The evening meals were very creative and delicious... More

Business trip to Barnstaple so stayed the night in Saunton Sands Hotel. Sea view room was just what we needed and I slept so well in the bed. An amazing view. I couldn't fault the staff and we had a very good meal in the restaurant that evening. Well done to the whole team.

Got thro' Late Rooms and although described as 'Luxury' room, it wasn't in the slightest! After complaint, put in refurbished room, which was much better, although safe didn't work. Hotel has amazing views, expansive, comfortable lounges. The food was good too, but the service was variable depending on who you got. The pool areas were clean and attractive. It was... More

An excellent stay. Children are well looked after. The early tea was great as was the baby listening service. It was fantastic for my wife and I to have a meal together child free. I have been going to this hotel since I was a child. I thought that the service was as good, if not better than ever. Evening... More
