Have stayed here many times. Very comfortable and welcoming hotel. Slight disappointment this time. Disco never happened. Also kipper for breakfast looked very like boil in the bag ! This has not been our previous experience. Not what we expect from this standard of hotel, especially as food is usually excellent and entertainment enjoyable. Still had a very good time.

We travel as a family regularly and the Saunton Sands Hotel really offers the best option, as the staff are so good with children and also the adults, the setting is second to none, this is a four star experience for the whole family, with more than plenty to do on a rainy day, and the best beaches in England...

We were there with friends celebrating a birthday and for Christmas meal. The hotel was very good and luxury but the only fault was the xmas lunch was very poor value and poor quality. The hotel room was very good and the breakfast was very good quality.

It sounds as though you really had a great festive break which is exactly what we like to hear, a stay by the sea should be just what the doctor ordered before the madness of Christmas! It's quite a nice way to recover from the Christmas rush too! - Anthony Kingdon

I stayed for 3 nights in November having sole use of a sea facing double. Regrettably the mattress was so uncomfortable, lacking in support and sagging in the middle, that I had 3 largely sleepless nights. I mentioned this when I filled in the hotels standard review form and followed this up with an email addressed to the manager asking...

Excellent food and clean tidy hotel. Great facilities for children with a supervised playroom and a good indoor swimming pool. Helpful and courteous staff. Room and bathroom was dated, not kept up with the rest of the hotel decor. Amazing views and good access to the beach.

Saunton Sands Hotel has views to die for but unfortunately the hotel does not live up to its reputation. We used the hotel as a base for play golf at Saunton Sands Golf Club which is situated next door. So the location of the hotel was very good for our visit. We ate at the hotel on our first night,...

Excellent food with service to match in a lovely setting. Very attentive and helpful staff from the moment we arrived. Pre dinner drink in lounge bar served by excellent members of staff and this was followed by equally excellent service in the main restaurant.
