Why We Love This Hotel

  • "Stunning sea views and direct access to five miles of sandy beach are just two of the highlights at this popular hotel," says The AA 
  • The hotel is recommended by Condé Nast Johansens for its "amazing location" overlooking Saunton Sands -- you can walk right on to the beach from the property
  • You can dine in the 2-AA-Rosette restaurant, which serves locally caught seafood and West Country produce

Saunton Sands Hotel Source Spa and Wellness is a Condé Nast Johansens-recommended property with direct beach access on the North Devon coast. It has a 2-AA-Rosette restaurant and is praised by The Daily Telegraph for being extremely child friendly.

The hotel overlooks the 3.5-mile-long Saunton Sands and the adjacent Braunton Burrows, part of a UNESCO-designated biosphere reserve in the North Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Braunton Burrows, the second-largest sand-dune system in England, is home to a large number of rare plants and animals.

Mathias Oberg, who has worked in many Michelin-starred restaurants, is head chef at the 2-AA-Rosette main restaurant, which has sea views and Art Deco-inspired designs. "Watch the sun set from the terrace or soak up the maritime views from the stylish restaurant with original 1930s chandeliers," says The AA.

Susy Atkins, a familiar face on BBC One's "Saturday Kitchen" and wine columnist for The Sunday Telegraph's Stella magazine, has worked closely with the hotel to develop its wine list.

The new Source Spa and Wellness centre opened in September, 2018. Facilities include a salt-inhalation steam room, a Finnish aroma sauna, a thalassotherapy pool with beach views, a gift shop and a supervised playroom. Spa treatments are available for a supplement.

The gym was renovated in August, 2018, and guests get complimentary access to daily fitness classes including yoga, pilates, tai chi and meditation. The outdoor pool is open May-September. Stay in a Sea View Room for views of Saunton Sands and Braunton Burrows.

Difficult to book treatment when we arrived. You need to book prior to arriving at hotel. However didn’t do this as we were unsure what we would be doing due to weather.

Excellent hotel, service, staff, food, location. Only slight negative our room was very hot despite radiator being off. Staff did provide a fan for 2nd night when asked. Also why does modern style music have to be played everywhere, prefer silence or some variety like , jazz, light classical or 20'3-30's to go with Art deco

Upgraded to a sea view room with amazing view. Excellent food at dinner with change of menu. Spa pool and facilities one of the best we have been to. Hotel quiet this time of the year so plenty of helpful staff. Of course this may be different at high season

We were very fortunate to be upgraded to a wonderful sea facing room. This made our stay even more special and will definitely be booking a sea view room again.

The staff, food, service and hotel generally was excellent. However, we were disappointed with our room. The room was a bit tired and the radiator in the room did not work and there was a damp patch under the window and the bathroom towel rail did not work.
