I had high expectations for this hotel after reading reviews about it and sadly they didn't live up to what I thought a 4 star hotel would provide. The location is stunning overlooking Saunton Sands and the terrace with outdoor pool is lovely however we were slightly dismayed with the standard of our room. We booked late and had a... More

A thoroughly enjoyable short break where one can either just relax or avail oneself of all the amenities on hand. If the weather is good there is no better place to spend the day than on the magnificent beach a short walk from the hotel where there are sport facilities, shops and restaurants to cater for most requirements. If one... More

Nice hotel. Beautiful location. Really friendly helpful staff. I had a room at the front of the hotel which was not a problem until the first night when it was hot and I opened the window. The noise from the ventilation to the kitchens was so loud I was unable to sleep with the window open. Even with the window... More

We decided to stay over the night, approached reception who gave us an excellent offer (checked on other sites). The staff were friendly, professional and polite. They provided toiletries and what ever else we required was available in the hotel shop.

Having stayed at this hotel before, I had no hesitation that I wanted to visit to consider holding my wedding at the hotel. On speaking with the wedding planner we were completely sold on the personal service they were offering. However.... Nothing could have been further from the truth. We stayed for 5 days and arrived on the Thursday before... More

We normally stay in dog friendly hotels but as this is our first year without him we decided to go somewhere a little more 'up market'.
