We went for a xmas lunch yesterday as a small party of four. The ambience was wonderful as always but as for the lunch - the soup was luke warm and the main meal was practically cold. We do not complain without cause but felt that we should. As did the party of six on the next table. The next... More

I sent this as an email on Saturday and still haven't had a reply! I just wanted to let you know how unhappy I was with a couple of things at the Christmas party at Saunton Sands hotel last night. The standard of the food was really poor. The vegetables were raw - they were so under cooked we could... More

Just back from a family weekend at Saunton Sands celebrating my father's 90th birthday. There were 12 of us in the party and from start to finish the visit was without fault. Service both at the desk and in the restaurant and bar was excellent. Food was of a very high quality too and surpassed my expectations. Those that used... More

Come her every year for a conference. It's a great location right next to the beach. Food is usually excellent but Just average this year. Unfortunately every time there is an event there is very little parking. Haven't stayed in a room yet as its too expensive.

We stayed here early in December having booked as part of a larger group of friends for a Christmas party. There was an element of confusion about our reservations and whether or not we were booked in to include the Christmas party of just on a dinner, bed and breakfast package. After a bit of argy bargy, Christmas do it... More

Stayed here for a works xmas party. The menu was limited and pretentious, and portion sizes were disappointing. The hotel had run out of double rooms for the night and had therefore provided shared suites for our party, I think at a reduced rate. The layout and size were impressive, but it was dirty. Sticky floors, dirty glasses and pots... More

This was our tenth visit to this superb venue, staying for 5 nights from Sunday 30th November. My wife and I are both in full time employment, have children, grandchildren and a hectic family lifestyle. It's not surprising therefore, that every now and again we need some 'us' time.
