Probably my favorite hotel. Not the most luxurious not the best food Definitely one of best views. The rooms are very comfortable, the service excellent, great pool and other " relaxing "amenities but a walk along the miles of beach followed by a hot chocolate on the balcony watching the sea was bliss. Some say the standards have slipped (not... More

Restaurant review only , I did not stay at the hotel ...... The dining lounge is a lovely deco style room with stunning views across the wide beach area. People do actually get dressed up to eat here giving a feeling of an elegant by gone age. Service was great and all the staff I encountered were very pleasant and... More

Stayed here for a family weekend and had a fabulous time. Great food, excellent service and lovely location. Look forward to staying again. Our room was modern and sea view. The only thing I think the hotel could do is to link in with the local golf course to arrange a little discount which may attract more bookings outside of... More

We enjoyed our one night stay which included dinner. Everything was up to a very good standard but maybe not as good as the prices would lead you to expect. It would be a lovely place to stay and relax for a few days.

From the moment my wife and I pulled up in the car park, and were greeted by the friendly and efficient Concierge, Neil, we had the definite impression that this was going to be a weekend where we were both made to feel special. The entire staff team on both days worked professionally and attentively at all times. Coupled with... More

My wife and I were booked in for a one night dinner bed and breakfast for the Strictly Come Dancing evening performance. We arrived late afternoon, the car park was at capacity, the hotel was very full, as a wedding party was also in full swing. The concierge was very helpful taking our luggage whilst we parked up. The receptionist... More

My wife and i ventured to the Saunton Sands Hotel for a well deserved night away. Our room was perfect, unfortunately windy which meant we could not get the best out of the balcony. However, on returning from a trip to Croyde we settled into a refreshing drink then a change for dinner. Food was excellent, service attentive and friendly.... More

this hotel is in a beautiful location which makes the stay worthwhile. the main hotel has been updated but the apartments badly need some attention. Sadly the staff are very slow and the service is appalling
