5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

we stayed three days, the location is great, the beach hut a lovey restaurant for an informal dinner, fifteen great for a celebration and more special dinner, we did not try the other restaurant Zacry. The treatments are good too, overoall the girls are quite good. walks around the hotel are amazing and the views a treat.

My family and I have been customers of Watergate Bay Hotel for years and have always loved it. Our last trip, October 2014, was disappointing and we won't be back. Main reason is the re-designed restaurant, but other factors too have changed for the worse. The restaurant was good before. Now, it looks like a combination of a Jamie's Italian... More

I had been looking forward to my stay here so much after seeing the hotels website that I was worried it would only be not as good as hoped. Surely the photos were photoshopped and it couldn't look quite that perfect. Trust me, it can and it does. My expectations were ridiculously high yet it surpassed them on all counts.... More

I took my partner for a weekend because she always wanted to go. It's a great location and as surfers we took full advantage of the beach. There are free facilities to store boards and get changed. The staff are very friendly if a little rushed and breakfast can be a bit of a scramble, but it kind of adds... More

Fantastic location, great views and dog friendly, but a very expensive stay. We booked one of the coach rooms(dog friendly) which to be honest was well decorated, stylish and modern. However, our room faced the main road which was somewhat noisy from 6.30am onwards. The hotel deliveries didn't help the situation either, as we were a few yards away from... More

This is one of the very best beach side hotels in the UK, IMHO. Amazing range of rooms, priced according to view and facilities. Catering is superb as is the range of available drinks in the bar. Amazing views from the terrace overlooking Watergate Bay. Nice long, narrow, pool and very nice quiet area to sit and collect your thoughts... More

We stayed for 6 nights dinner bed & breakfast for two adults & two babies (2 & 9months), and we loved every minute. At first we weren't blown away with the room (better family suite) considering the price but we didn't need anything thing else & it was in keeping with the rest of the hotels decor. We had a...

The Living Space has potential but it's just full of screaming children running around the place all day long. Dogs are allowed in the area too, and when one starts barking the next one kicks off. It's a dreadful experience. It states in the brochure in the rooms that children are respectively asked to leave the Living Space by 7.30pm... More

From the booking process to check-out, this place really is very good. While we met friends for brunch, our room was being prepared so we could check-in early which was appreciated. Brunch on the terrace was nice as was the infinity pool and the leisure facilities. The room itself was very nicely decorated with a lovely view. All the staff... More
