We regularly stay in and around Braunton so we can use Saunton Sands beach as its excellent for boggie boarding. We said we wanted to stay at the sands hotel and this year we were lucky enough to be able to.
We thought the bedroom was very average for a 4* hotel but the view the hotel has and the attentive staff more than made up for the tiredness of the bedroom decor.
We ate in the terrace restaurant, we had to pay extra for this more relaxed way of dining but we were more than happy with the food and service. By eating this way you can almost guarantee a window table, which can not be said if you go into the formal dining room.
The outside swimming pool was in need of attention, some tiles missing around the inside edge made it look a little scruffy and some of the loungers were broken, the backs couldn't be raised up into a sitting up position.
Would these issues stop me booking again - NO. We had a lovely time in a relaxed atmosphere with excellent (if not a little steep) access to the beach. We will return in 2014.
