In spite of the glorious setting above Saunton beach the accommodation taken sadly did not compare with other family seaside holidays we have used for similar prices. Although Sea View apartment was spacious it desperately needs a major upgrade of what is rather jaded decor and facilities. The view from the apartment is wonderful and this would only be enhanced by more modern surroundings. Some of the apartments have been upgraded and are stunning but this one was not good value from our point of view. The hotel pool is a major benefit and is a real bonus but the description of the apartment did not match the quality offered by the hotel. There was no mention of the potentially difficult access to the apartment which was via a steep flight of stairs which for three generations could have been a problem. Missing hooks on curtains and dirty crockery put away in the cupboards suggested a lack of care and attention to detail. The contrast between the well cared for and high quality surroundings and facilities of the hotel and our apartment was a disappointment.
The hotel itself was bright, well furnished with beautiful flowers and all staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly so it was something of a surprise to find the apartment was sadly somewhat below our expectations.
