Saunton Sands Hotel is truly special, the hotel takes you back to the heady times of the Art Deco period with all the luxury of what we expect today of a 4 star hotel. All the staff were friendly and welcoming, nothing was too much trouble, the food was very good, breakfast and dinner and the scones were the best...

We have stayed at this hotel many times and have never been disappointed. Pay the extra for a sea view room it is well worth it. If you want a quiet break avoid kids holiday times as it can get rather busy but not over crowded.

How lovely to hear from a regular guest, I would agree that the sea view can't be beat! We do try our best to make each and every day as relaxing as possible but inevitably do get busier during the holidays - Anthony Kingdon

We paid a top price for a rather small room as this was all that was available.It was disappointing that we were not given access to our room until after 16.30.In addition the (above bath) shower head could not be fixed...

Our first visit. We loved it. Our sea view room was beautifully decorated, and very comfortable. The fine dining restaurant lives up to its styling. The menu is pleasantly varied and the presentation of every dish we tried was thoughtfully presented with delightful complementary flavours, textures and colour, and inventive without being OTT. The wine list is extensive, and there...

This is an art-deco style hotel that is maintained to a very high standard. The setting on the cliff top overlooking the huge beach is just fantastic. The car park seems small for the number of bedrooms. The grounds include children's' play equipment, an outdoor pool and path directly to the beach. Indoors there are sports, leisure and spa facilities...
