Spent two nights at SS over the BH weekend. We had a sea view room that was a nice size and of course had a great vista. This is a large hotel with a lot of staff but it does not live up to its 4 star billing, not by a long shot. The waiting staff are generally very average... More

Within 24 hours our 12 year old asked if we could make a booking for next year ! I don't think angelina jolie could have hoped for a better welcome . Sophie on the desk was charming and squeezed us a table for dinner in the main restaurant and organised newspapers for our stay . Someone carried the bags for... More

Stayed here with my girlfriend for one night. Amazing view from the room along the length of the beach. Room average - dated furniture, strange layout. Food -restaurant dinner nothing special and certainly didn't meet expectation. Buffet breakfast less than average. On both occasions completely over staffed and not organised at all. Weird! Reception staff - not the most welcoming... More

We went as a family with four kids - 2 teenagers and a 9 and 10 yr old to celebrate my birthday. Had requested 2 rooms , one corner family suite and a twin close by. Booked several weeks in advance. On arrival they gave us the room keys and we worked out that the rooms were two floors apart!... More

We have just returned from this hotel which we have been visiting for 40 years but this time with our grandchildren. The entertainment for them was first class and they really enjoyed 'Take That.' They made and dressed bears, watched birds of prey, swam, played putting, go karting etc. We all really would have liked to have stayed longer! Food... More

Recently went to the Saunton Sands Hotel and was very impressed with all the staff who were extremely friendly and helpful. The manner and presentation was of the highest quality and was impressed with them all especially young Josh who was very polite and willing to assist if i required anything further. Highly reccomended and would come again!

I only usually 'do' good reviews but i'm struggling with this one! Booked 2 rooms for 5 nights in August. Both rooms were small and extremely hot and stuffy and being located at the side of the hotel and close to the road was noisy at night with the window open. Carpets badly stained and dirty marks over the paintwork.... More

What a lovely place to be! We just got back from a lovely three days at the Saunton Sands Hotel. It has a special significance as family members have spent time at Saunton Sands going back generations, and nobody has actually stayed at the hotel before, so a bit of an adventure! The hotel is of course in a very... More
