This hotel is full of Ambience and I felt as though I was in an Agatha Christie film . (No one was murdered I must point out , but the place did have a feel nostalgia and of stepping in to the 1930s ) The winning formula of this hotel is the staff - they are polite, welcoming and cant...

My wife and I stayed here last weekend to selebrate Xmas and New year as she was not well over that week. We had a cosy room and it was very comfy. The staff were very nice and polite. Service and food was excellent very worth the money. Can't wait to go back for another weekend.

We stopped at this little gem of a hotel for a drink in the bar to mark my husband's birthday, mainly to get out of the cold winter weather, but what a lovely hotel this is, with spectacular views of the beach and dunes. Staff are great. Would definitely return.

This hotel personifies quality British class & values, friendly helpful staff "throughout" from pulling up in the car park. comfortable bedrooms, great facilities, amazing location & exquisite food worthy of Michelin star (but fortunately more plentiful)

We stay at the Saunton Sands every year in February, and they never disappoint. This year was no different. This time the stay was for my mothers 50th birthday, and they really helped to make it special. We had ordered flowers and balloons for the room in advance, and due to crossed wires they were not there when we arrived....

As a regular visitor to saunton sand we enjoyed the same welcome as usual. The staff are always attentive and friendly from the doorman to the reception restaurant bar and cleaners. My one disappointment was the new menu in the dining room the portion are very small and the choices to complex. A young man or any one with a...

Always wonderful to return to Saunton. This time we rented 2 apartments on the 3 nights for 1 Jan deal. The whole family were impressed. Beautiful apartments with that incredible view. We dined in the Saunton restaurant one night. It was a lovely evening with delicious food and exemplary service. Afternoon tea was enjoyed by all. A very enjoyable experience....
