We recently stayed here on a three day Taste of the Bay package. This was the third time we had taken advantage of a winter break with some excellent meals in what is a terrific family hotel where children and families are truly welcomed and accommodated not just tolerated. The deal consists of three nights B&B with dinner in the... More

We watched a very lively sea whipped up by a storm drive large waves up the very sandy and empty beach from the comfort of the lounge. The service... More

A very late review....we stayed at the hotel in November with our 2 year old son. We have been staying here for about 5 years and often return twice a year. The hotel is set overlooking Watergate Bay and the view of the beach and sunset are stunning! Best of all for us is how family friendly the hotel is,... More

We stayed over October half-term and booked for the following year while we were there. Stunning beach, great restaurants, amazing pool and the best kids' club/facilities you will find anywhere Worth every penny.

We are currently staying here for the weekend as a treat from my Husband to me. We previously stayed just over 6 years ago and was underwhelmed by the lack of attention to detail and uncaring attitude of the staff. I was understandably extremely apprehensive about returning but I'm so glad we did. It has been an absolute joy to... More

My wife and I have just finished a four night stay here, and it was thoroughly enjoyable. The room was well equipped, clean, crisp, and the sea view was worth the extra premium. This hotel is situated right on the beach and the resulting views from inside the various bars and lounges are spectacular. There is a lot of glass... More

The room was lovely with a great bed (really good sleep), thick towels in the bathroom, good toiletries and a robe, and a hair-dryer. Also WiFi in the rooms. All the meals were excellent, particularly breakfast, Lots of choice, including a waffle maker. the staff... More

We were given a two night stay at Watergate Bay by our daughter and son in law as a Christmas Present. We visited on a Wednesday and Thursday night in mid January. Lovely clean room with ensuite bathroom. Very comfortable stay. We had both evening meals in Zacrys - the hotel restaurant. The food was absolutely first class, good service... More

A family favourite we have been visiting for over 10 years. We have seen the hotel change from old seaside glamour, shabby chic to the modern stylish hotel it has become in recent years. Amazing location with excellent facilities, friendly helpful staff and great food.

We went mid December with two small children and our dog. The best holiday we have ever had for bonding as a little family. We did not have to lift a finger so had lots of fun filled family time. The weather did not matter at all with a fantastic swimming pool, kids club, beautiful "Living Space" to entertain us.... More
