The Deal

Great Price

"Stunning sea views and direct access to five miles of sandy beach are just two of the highlights at this popular hotel" -- The AA Hotel Guide 2018. Overnight stay prices at Saunton Sands Hotel have now dropped in June and July:

  • £185-£241 per night ... 17-19, 24, 26, 28-31 Jul; 1-2, 6-9, 12-19, 24-25, 28-31 Aug; 1-6, 9 Sep

Why We Love It

  • 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 AA-Rosette-awarded restaurant, which serves locally caught seafood and West Country produce


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

The hotel overlooks 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 (including Oblix at The Shard in London), is head chef at the AA-Rosette-awarded main restaurant, which has sea views and Art Deco-inspired designs. "The kitchen is impassioned about using only West Country produce and turns out some stimulating dishes in the contemporary mould," 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.

Facilities include a heated indoor swimming pool (open from 10 February), a health club, a shop and a supervised nursery. Stay in a Sea View Room for views of Saunton Sands and Braunton Burrows.

The Hotel is in a superb position. The staff (of whatever nationality) were courteous, polite and attentive (though in one or two cases, seemed rather over-worked!).
Other Comments
This is a criticism - we think - of Travelzoo, rather than the hotel...... We were somewhat disconcerted, when handed the Menu at dinner on our first evening, to be told that, on our deal, there would be a supplement payable if we chose individial dishes priced at over £10! We do not remember any such caveat being shown in Travelzoo's details of the offer......and we found it embarassing to be told this, in the hearing of other diners! On examination of our bill, the total such surcharge appeared to be £15.70 - not significant in terms of the total cost of our 2 nights stay, but we see no justification for any such charge. Or was it the hotel which unilaterally imposed this condition, without the knowledge of Travelzoo? We would very much like to know where this fault lies. This incident rather spoilt an otherwise enjoyable stay.
