Just come home from a fabulous chilled out post New Year break at Saunton. Food was fabulous - the best of several stays over the past few years, views and beach walks sublime as ever and topped off by a great disco with lots of groups all mingling for a lovely atmosphere. Can't wait for our next stay!

The Saunton sands hotel laid on a New Years celebration that will not be forgotten for a very long time.
From the moment we arrived you could tell the staff were ready for a celebration to remember. The food was great, the staff were very polite and covered our every need.
My whole family had a wonderful time morning, noon and night.
We have now booked our next trip back to the lovely Staunton sands hotel.

P.s. You could never tire of the view !!!!

Room Tip: Sea facing room if you have no children. An apartment for the larger families

Stayed for 2 nights including New Years Eve. We have booked this hotel for our wedding and wanted to stay to see what it was like. It did not disappoint!
We stayed in a lovely appartment and were lucky enough to have some good weather for walking on the beach. The NYE Gala Dinner was a wonderful evening, such attention to detail with brilliant entertainment and food. I was especially impressed with the vegetarian menu, not a nut roast in sight!
Our break could not have been better. Thank you Saunton Sands!

We are regulars to Saunton having also stayed at sister hotels of the Brend group. We have three children boys of 15, 7 and nearly 6. Each and every time we come we are greeted like family. The 2 youngest of our kids love Antonia who runs the kids club and the 15 year old loves to wander the dunes and keeps himself busy with all the many games and hotel leisure facilities.

We decided to stay for Christmas Eve, Day and Boxing Day. Well the hotel and staff surpassed all previous visits even with the hotel being full. It was nothing short of superb. Well done Saunton Sands Hotel. Fab, fab, fab. Loved the Gala dinner on Boxing Day. We all loved the idea of dressing up inblack tie and ladies in full length dress. Mother, father in law and sister in law with husband came too. 9 of us all pampered and very satisfied.

Sadly home to cooking for ourselves again. Booked up for next year!!!!!

This hotel has a superb location, looking out over the sand dunes and beautiful sandy bay. It is a real pleasure to stay, the hotel facilities are first class, restaurants and food of the highest order, and most important of all attention and efficient staff. Ample car parking with a marvellous golf course (Saunton) just a few hundred yards down the road. A sister hotel to Carlyon Bay in South Devon. Both have a touch of style and preserved standards.

Room Tip: Request a room with a sea view overlooking the bay.

I stayed at Saunton Sands for three nights in late November. Having three sisters in Devon its seemed a lovely chance to take a break and enjoy the sea air. The ocean view room was lovely but the first night was disturbed by a rather noisy radiator. I was graciously moved the next day. This is a really friendly hotel and great value for money. The service and food in the restaurant were excellent and I really enjoyed my stay. I will certainly return in the New Year.
