I stayed for 3 nights in November having sole use of a sea facing double. Regrettably the mattress was so uncomfortable, lacking in support and sagging in the middle, that I had 3 largely sleepless nights. I mentioned this when I filled in the hotels standard review form and followed this up with an email addressed to the manager asking...

Excellent food and clean tidy hotel. Great facilities for children with a supervised playroom and a good indoor swimming pool. Helpful and courteous staff. Room and bathroom was dated, not kept up with the rest of the hotel decor. Amazing views and good access to the beach.

Been staying at this beautiful hotel for well over 10 years now. We went with our adult daughter for a birthday celebration. Hotel was as well maintained as ever and the staff as friendly. Thursday night was wonderful with excellent service and food. On Friday night however we could not be fitted in before 2 very large parties so had...

Saunton Sands Hotel has views to die for but unfortunately the hotel does not live up to its reputation. We used the hotel as a base for play golf at Saunton Sands Golf Club which is situated next door. So the location of the hotel was very good for our visit. We ate at the hotel on our first night,...

Excellent food with service to match in a lovely setting. Very attentive and helpful staff from the moment we arrived. Pre dinner drink in lounge bar served by excellent members of staff and this was followed by equally excellent service in the main restaurant. We both enjoyed our choice of food very much and all in all the price was...

Lovely location overlooking beach. Lacked a bit of sparkle very nice nevertheless. Breakfast not special but service and restaurant decor lovely. Think it's trying to be 1930s splendour but feels a bit old fashioned.

I had a most pleasant stay and found the staff exceptional. The hotel was clean and the room extremely comfortable. I dined in the restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed a three course meal. Again waiting staff were most attentive. I was visiting my brother and his family.

Given a gift voucher to have high tea in this lovely hotel with a stunning sea view. Stunning mix of cakes, sandwiches and tea brought out on a sweet stand. Yummy but could not eat all of it. Would recommend for a nice gift for someone or a couple if not drop by and try!

We had a perfect night away for a much needed break. The staff were all so helpful and friendly. Every meal they remembered that I required gluten-free food. One of the porters took us to Woolacombe so that we could have a lovely long walk back along the coastal path back to the hotel. We were very lucky with the...

Myself and husband stayed here for one night the room and facilities were great with a fantastic sea view! The food in the restaurant was lovely and staff were very polite and helpful. The only thing I would say negative is the spa facilities are not great and treatments overpriced, other than this great place to stay very good location...
