“Our group visit to Saunton Sands Hotel”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

Hi, our group recently had a four night stay at the hotel and everyone enjoyed it immensely. The rooms were clean and well laid out with tv, wifi and minibar!. The staff in the dining room and lounges were excellant where nothing was too much trouble. I would highly recommend the hotel to anyone whether a group, couples or singles wanting a first class holiday break.
Thank you all de Mike Hammond (Hon Sec) NDKSG

Room Tip: Look for a sea view which is excellant.

I was part a group of eight golfers with the Mr. McConachie party and I have to stay how much I enjoyed our stay. On arrival at reception and departure the service was excellent and very professional. The bedrooms and bathrooms were a great size and of very high standard. Staff were always warm and welcoming and extremely helpful. The food was very good, both dinner and breakfast. The hotel organised the transport for us which without would have been logistically impossible, the drivers being courteous and helpful at all times.

I would like to say a special thanks to Liz for her personal attention to detail, not only with accommodation, but arranging the golf tee times.

We will definitely be back!

My weekend break with friends was greatly enhanced by the warm welcome and wonderful service we received from all the staff at this hotel. Not intrusive but always on hand to deal with any requests or offer advice on things to do or places to see in the area. The rooms were great with spectacular views and the food was excellent. We felt very relaxed and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: Worth paying the extra cost for the sea views

I decided to earn some 'brownie points' by taking my wife to the stunning Saunton Sands Hotel in North Devon. We were lucky enough to have our wedding reception there back in 1993, and whilst the view and the fantastic service hasn't changed, the hotel has just got better and better. The rooms are sumptious, the food fantastic and the facilities excellent. Nothing is too much trouble and everyone, be they a guest or a member of staff, has a smile on their face. This really is the jewel in North Devon's crown!

Room Tip: If you really want to push the boat out try and book 'Surf View' it's simply stunning

Bit of a mixed reaction before booking from reviews but bit the bullet based on location. The location is Awsome, the hotel not so!. Room tired, cleanliness poor, restaurant dire, food dire and staff at best ok, at worst plain rude and unprofessional. Have stayed at another Brend hotel locally, The Imperial, and will return there when next in North Devon as its by far the superior option.

This was yet another amazing time well spent at our favourite hotel in Devon.
As a family we have been staying at the Saunton sands hotel for almost 10 years.
Amazing location, delicious food, squash, surfing, swimming and a well deserved family break together.

Room Tip: The sea views are amazing! Don't forget your surfboard and wetsuit! The beach is right in front...

Apartment was spacious but dated and the decor also dated , and a plug socket wasn't fully secured in one of the bedroom walls which was a surprise. The patio door wasn't secured until we asked twice for reception to send someone over to fix it, but had one night with the external door unsecured. The location is great.

Room Tip: Bayview apartment not the best unfortunately to stay in.

I am very sorry that you felt that the apartment was dated. I have addressed the issues which you have brought to my attention and these have now been rectified.

On a more positive note I was pleased that our location met with your expectations.
