Really enjoyed ourselves, family feel with attentive staff and just a little grandure (North Devon style). Good facilities that we used: tennis, golf putting, pool, table tennisand board games. Would happily go again.

We took a winter bargain break. Really couldn't fault the room, staff, service, food or facilities. My only suggestion would be that some of the gym equipment needs attention. However we are completely happy and we will be back.

A return visit, the first being 25 years ago and it never disappoints..,the rooms with views are stunning. The atmosphere throughout the hotel is happy and friendly. A choice of restaurant now caters for all requirements. The staff are so professional, smart and efficient. My only complaint is that I couldn't stay longer

This hotel is full of Ambience and I felt as though I was in an Agatha Christie film . (No one was murdered I must point out , but the place did have a feel nostalgia and of stepping in to the 1930s ) The winning formula of this hotel is the staff - they are polite, welcoming and cant...

My wife and I stayed here last weekend to selebrate Xmas and New year as she was not well over that week. We had a cosy room and it was very comfy. The staff were very nice and polite. Service and food was excellent very worth the money. Can't wait to go back for another weekend.

We stopped at this little gem of a hotel for a drink in the bar to mark my husband's birthday, mainly to get out of the cold winter weather, but what a lovely hotel this is, with spectacular views of the beach and dunes. Staff are great. Would definitely return.

This hotel personifies quality British class & values, friendly helpful staff "throughout" from pulling up in the car park. comfortable bedrooms, great facilities, amazing location & exquisite food worthy of Michelin star (but fortunately more plentiful)

We stay at the Saunton Sands every year in February, and they never disappoint. This year was no different. This time the stay was for my mothers 50th birthday, and they really helped to make it special. We had ordered flowers and balloons for the room in advance, and due to crossed wires they were not there when we arrived....
