We didn't stay at this hotel, but we had lunch on the terrace. It was beautiful sunny spring day. The view towards the beach is just stunning. Service was good and foods were good, too! I had Devon Cream Tea, and I must say they're very generous with the clotted cream. I love clotted cream, but even clotted cream lover...

We were very lucky in booking a two night short break via Travelzoo where there were cloudless skies throughout. We paid the little extra for a sea view room which really is a must. Looking over the hotel lawn on to the beach and the Atlantic rollers. The staff were very pleasant and attentive. The cream tea, which was part...

Quite how this four star hotel doesn't have a fifth is a mystery, it is quite easily the finest in the West Country. From the time we were greeted at reception to the time we left after a three night stay, we were royally treated by all the staff. The accommodation in our deluxe sea view room was excellent, the...

So its was my partners birthday so that was the excuse for another visit to Saunton Sands Hotel. You cannot visit this hotel with having a sea view room as it is simply the best view you could wish for looking straight down a sandy beach a view you can never possibly tire off. So what if anything has changed...

We have just returned from a lovely two day break at The Saunton Sands Hotel. It is in a stunning location with breathtaking views from all the main rooms. The pool and spa are lovely - it was a great place to spend a rainy afternoon- we were sorry that there was no hot tub though. I was rather disappointed...

Fantastic long weekend away. The staff were excellent, very friendly and attentive. Location was brilliant with stunning views over the beach. Breakfast was well organised with a wonderful selection of food. We stayed in a inland room which was fine. The bedroom was well decorated, but unfortunately had a damp smell on entering the room it was fine with the...

I worked out that I last stayed here 60 yeas ago, I don't remember much about it now. I can say that this time around I was completely satisfied, everything was as good as it could be, the ambience, the decor and general standard of fittings and furnishings, was in keeping with the Art Deco style. The public rooms were...

A wonderful welcome. A bedroom with stunning sea view, long sandy beach, watching surfers from our window. High standards throughout the hotel and garden. The facilities were excellent, used the gym, pool and sauna.

3 night stay in the Saunton Sands was very enjoyable but a bit too expensive. The hotel has some lovely Art Deco features but it's tired and in need of a refit. The staff were 'old school' friendly and efficient but again feels as if modernisation is required. The view and position of the hotel was amazing so I imagine...
