We had our office Christmas party at Saunton in December 2013 and it was wonderful. The hotel itself is stunning and the rooms were clean and comfortable. The location right on the beach is fantastic and of course this leads to stunning views. The staff however were another level. From the very beginning they were extremely helpful and efficient, we had a lot of switching-of-rooms to be done during the process and that was never a problem for them. On the day itself, the staff were again great, really friendly and accommodating. The duty manager that was on that evening was particularly good and couldn't do enough to help. We were a group of 20 age range from 22-50-something and everyone loved the hotel, the food, the staff etc. My one tiny criticism was that the pool wasn't very well sign posted, but that's not really a problem when you have so many friendly staff members to ask. I would recommend this highly for anyone looking to organise a corporate event.

My wife and I invited six friends for a short break. We had.a wonderful time with fantastic accommodation overlooking the stunning Saunton Beach.The staff were very attentive (obviously well trained) and the food was excellent. Our friends have asked to book again for next year.

Room Tip: Must have a room with a sea view.

I booked this as a special surprise for my husband for our 20th Wedding Anniversary. Our room was wonderful with fantastic sea view. Only one minor disappointment was the size of the bathroom however everything else was perfect. The facilities were excellent and the staff were most attentive. Fantastic food, wonderful location and to top it all we had amazing weather. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: A sea view is a must - well worth the extra cost

We just a special occasion 2 night break at the Saunton Sands and loved it. Our room was perfect and had every facility, including THAT view of the beach.
The restaurant was excellent and all the staff very friendly and professional, however a special thank you to the manager, for such a nice table and his attention to detail.
We could not fault the the hotel and would love to stay longer next time
Thank you, I wish I could have met Mr Brend to tell him personally.

We stayed here for 4 nights and had a fantastic time. The room was great and the view over the sea was fantastic. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The two swimming pools were very warm. The food at dinner was delicious. We are looking forward to returning soon. I've rated the breakfast as 'Average' which some people might think is a bit unfair - there is a huge selection of food but the buffet-style cooked breakfast lets it down, in my opinion. The food is not really hot enough and does not look very appetising. All the other food is delicious.

Room Tip: Sea view - obviously!

We have stayed so many times - chill out, anniversarys, birthdays and Christmas, and each time we have felt like we were coming home. The rooms are clean and comfortable, we always have a sea view room, why bother otherwise. The food is varied and all tastes are catered for, the newly refurbished dining room and terrace bar are superb, and the outside terrace is great for that summer evening dinner or lunchtime snack and a bottle of Prosecco.
Also, the amenities are great for the children and parents and grandparents alike. The views and walks are stunning, what is there not to like about a stay here. Top it all with caring and happy staff, I defy anybody to have any gripes about a stay at this lovely hotel.

Room Tip: Always go for a sea view.
