Having spent a wonderful weekend in the best apartment at Saunton Sands in the most spectacular weather possible , I would like I to make a few observations.
For manŷ years we came here and appreciated the restaurant rule about jacket and tie and NO children after 7 00 pm
Alas it is no longer the case, we turned up duly attired in Jacket &tie only to find every occupied table casually dressed with Children much in evidence.
The food has taken a change for the worse with the head chef obviously much influenced by masterchef trying to become totally over the top with what we call "Mucked About Food"
Traditional good quality fare is what was always order of the day and what the Hotel built it's reputation on.
To add insult to injury, on our return I saw on line an advert offering the apartments Half price for the whole of June!!
I telephoned a manager to say that at £450 per night we had been overcharged, and his explanation was that as we booked on 4th May for our weekend of 21st June we didn't qualify for the half price offer!!!
If we had waited until 1st June before booking we would have done!!.
The moral here is DONT book well in advance- wait until the last minute
My view is that if prices are reduced it should be for everyone not just the late bookers!!
