We have just enjoyed our 3rd visit to Saunton Sands Hotel and it was just as good as the previous 2 visits. The staff are excellent and the room was very clean and comfortable, we cannot get enough of the sea view. We ate in the Terrace Lounge both nights as the restaurant is being refurbished. However the food and... More

Very swanky hotel with several lounge areas populated by OAPs who still think if you dress for dinner then the food must be good - keeps the riff-raff out too, no doubt. My room made me thankful i didn't bring my cat on my travels. I felt more like the riff-raff as I had been walking the South West Coastal... More

Having viewed the hotel from a distance on a number of occasions, I had a perception of a being greeted by a 'Hercule Poirot' character into a tired English holiday resort. I couldn't have been more wrong. Whereas the overall structure of the building reflects the '30's, once inside the public rooms, bars and restaurants, they all reflect the very... More

I did enjoy my stay in Saunton Sands - Art Deco style hotel. Rooms very nice and the view over the sea are breathtaking! Breakfasts are good, bar reasonably priced and well presented food. We were on the third floor so there wasn't must water pressure for the shower.

We stayed at Saunton Sands Hotel for the second time recently. The staff made sure all weekend that we were well looked after. Magdalena stood out and was very attentive. Our inland-facing room was clean and comfortable. Parking was perfect. Lunch and the Devon Cream Tea were both very nice. We ate in the fine-dining restaurant on both evenings. Sadly,... More

We had visited the beach at Saunton many times to surf and body board with our children and always wondered what it would be like to stay at the hotel on the cliff. So last week we took advantage of a winter offer and spent the night at Saunton Sands Hotel. We walked in the door to a wonderful friendly... More

All the staff were as welcoming as ever, the Hotel was looking very good, flowers in the reception spectacular, bedroom very comfortable and spotlessly clean, great modern bathroom.

Sometimes in large hotels the staff can make you feel ill at ease or unimportant, this is most emphatically not the case here. We asked for a firmer mattress, within minutes the bed was changed redressed and ready, the Resturant, room service and bar staff could not have made us feel ore at home. Great place, great sea view, really... More
