Returned to saunton sands again this year for a christmas doo and wasn't disappointed! ! The food and service was outstanding. The tables were laid out beautifully and the food was presented to the same standard. Have been returning here now for the past few years and have always had a fantastic time. This year we decided to stay over... More

The room was lovely, clean and fresh, the food absolutely delicious and staff in the restaurant very attentive, and the atmosphere relaxing. The only thing we would say is that while the pool was lovely, a jacuzzi and relaxation room would of been perfect!

Great hotel and great service. Nothing is too much trouble and the hotel seems to have captured the Art Deco service as well as the look. The reastuarant offers a good selection of dishes although most are quite rich. More simple fare available on the grill menu though.

Recently stayed again for a 2-night break in January. This time we treated ourselves to a sea-view room and I'm so glad we did. Stunning views and the ability to hear the sea all the time is worth the extra. As always, we came away from the hotel feeling very relaxed. The ambience is perfect for getting away from the...

I couldn't have celebrated my birthday in a better place. Saunton Sands was perfect. It was recommended by friends and family who have been before and I loved it. Sixteen of us booked in for the wine tasting, dinner, bed and breakfast weekend and had a fantastic time. We all loved the hotel. The décor is amazing - stunning. The... More

Lovely hotel, architect art deco, public rooms lovely, bedrooms not in style of that period but clean modern very comfortable with fabulous views over the sands. We were lucky enough to have a spacious top floor room with a balcony. The leisure facilities were well maintained and the pool temperature was perfect. My husband and I booked in for their... More

OK call me fussy..... but when I book a luxury apartment there are certain things I expect. I expect a shower that is more than a drip, a toilet that flushes, sockets and heaters that work and a clean room. We booked the Instow apartment for my husbands 50th Birthday weekend. When we arrived the apartment was cold, the dishwasher... More

I am sorry that you were not happy with your recent stay in our Instow apartment. Instow does indeed sleep 8 with two bathrooms and combined with all of the facilities at the hotel such as the leisure club, is very good value for money. With regard to the flush, after you reported the problem, maintenance audited the issues. On... More

we have stayed at saunton sands with my family for over 30 years but unfortunately the last few times we have stayed we felt that standards had slipped and that the staff were not as attentive. However we felt we would have another try and having just spent two nights at the hotel, we are pleased to say that all... More

We stayed in December. Lovely helpful staff booked us in hours before the room should have been ready. The room was really clean and comfortable with stunning views over the beach, but the bed was 2 singles pushed together. Great pool and sauna facilities. The food was outstanding.
