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

"We used the spa on both Friday and Saturday and on both occasions enjoyed our session. It goes without saying that the view from the Jacuzzi across the beach is quite spectacular."

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.

Lots of staff wandering about but lack of communication with kitchen. Waited 40 minutes for cooked breakfast cos the chef forgot but not communicated to us. Went down for afternoon tea and they had run out of scones so waited nearly an hour but again not told. Ordered tea for 4 only 2 cups etc arrived. One particular waiter was like an extra from Fawlty Towers. Service could definitely be improved upon. Some very nice and efficient staff tho the rest need retraining.

Relaxing and enjoyable break. The dining experience very good with a choice of starters,mains and dessert. The spa was clean and inviting. Unfortunately unable to get in for a treatment but had access to the thermal experience and use of the pool. Attentive staff throughput the hotel with nothing too much trouble.

Fantastic hotel, awesome food, good service. And the spa was fabulous... a special mention to Jazmine who had so much empathy for her clients, I can’t recommend her enough. I can’t wait to return

Room let down our visit. It was small, had a small double bed, poor lighting, too warm, didn’t have any bottled water and we did not sleep well. We did not pay for a sea view but did not expect to get a substandard room as a result. Everything else on our stay was brilliant.
