We spent two nights at the SSH in January. We found all the staff very friendly and helpful. We had a deluxe sea facing room which was spacious with a seating area. Comfortable bed. En suite was long and narrow, not the best, but adequate.
The food was different and tasty, but could have been hotter at times. Portions were not very large, so it may not suite those with a hearty appetite.
We were very disappointed with the breakfast as we hate self service. Surely the point of going to stay in a hotel is to have someone waiting on you! We expected a freshly cooked breakfast served at the table not a fetch it yourself, make your own toast arrangement, especially at these high prices.
It is a nice hotel and we enjoyed our stay, but we would probably not go back to the SSH.
We like two of the other Brend Hotels, the Royal & Fortescue and the Park both in Barnstaple which is only a short drive to Saunton. These two hotels do not have the views or some of the facilities of the SSH but they are better value, and the last time we stayed at the Park in July 2012 the breakfast was much, much better than the SSH.
