Recommend this place for a beer, pot of tea and something to go with it if you’re passing by. Sit out on the terrace in the sun and look out over the beach, brilliant. There’s also a swimming pool and nice gardens surrounding it.

We spent a single night here in October. Our sea facing room had incredible views over Saunton Sands and Burrows and across Bideford Bay. It was comfortable, of good size, and very clean although overall not quite to the standard I would expect from a 4* hotel. The hotel is rather disappointing- despite the staff, who were pleasant, helpful, and... More

Our third visit to a 4* Brend Hotel this year proved to be the least satisfactory and way below the standard of the excellent Belmont in Sidmouth. Such a pity because even in the dull and windy spell of weather, the postition overlooking the Saunton Sands is superb and our de luxe room, for which admittedly we paid extra, was... More

Wonderful few days at Saunton Sands Hotel. Monday morning was a real treat with Johnny Kingdon. Some of the walks were too much for me so opted to join the group at lunch time for the the afternoon walk. Only one niggle, the room was much too hot even with the heating of. Staff fantastic. Will be back.

Great location, with views and access to the beach, and a short walk to Croyde. Rooms, restaurant, pool were all clean and tidy. Staff we very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was great, but I do have one complaint, the vegetarian choices from the dinner menu were extremely poor. A lump of spreadable goats cheese with no accompaniment to spread it... More

Good location, well equipped and tastefully refurbished. Some staff a bit bossy and want to choose where you sitThey tried to charge for an upgrade which had been given but not requested. All meals very good and nicely presented.

This is a superb hotel with the most beautiful views and some excellent amenities. The staff are very friendly and incredibly helpful. We will definitely return in the future and we highly recommend as a hotel to stay in by the gorgeous Saunton sands beach.

We were the DJ's hired for a wedding at Saunton Sands Hotel and we also booked in as guests to make our job run more smoothly. Beautiful sea view, excellent service, very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. 10/10

We stayed at Saunton for a weekend last year and were very impressed with the hotel and staff. The rooms were clean, spacious and very tastefully decorated. The hotel pool was large and very clean. We practically enjoyed the food, which was probably the best hotel food we’ve had. We would recommend the hotel to anybody.

The hotel is hard to match in its location and tries hard to match this with quality inside and out. The strongest point is the conduct of the staff. Highly attentive without being over-bearing and accommodating to all needs arising. The hotel itself resplendent in white, looking clean and clear, is a mixed catch. Inside some areas do need modernising... More
