The Watergate Bay Hotel was stunning in all respects. A beautiful quiet room overlooking the bay, excellent food, friendly staff and stunning views. A winter soak in the outdoor hot tub was a highlight! The location is just gorgeous, with a wide sandy beach and cliff-top walks. Definitely a good spot to get away from it all!

Just back from February half term holiday at Watergate Bay Hotel - an almost annual event which we now look forward to more than Christmas! The hotel is a perfect treat, with extremely good staff - friendly, helpful and generally gorgeous. The facilities are excellent, with a wonderful pool, a private (huge) lounge for hotel guests (THE best sea views... More

For our birthdays we treated ourselves to a 3 day break in Cornwall at the Watergate Bay Hotel. Good move! Can't fault any of it, they were so friendly and accommodating. We opted for the basic 3 day package, some basic! Room very good, breakfast very good; even had Gluten free bread and the evening meals were excellent and varied.... More

Just returned from a fantastic 3 night stay at Watergate Bay on their Taste of the Bay deal. The hotel is great - the perfect mix of luxury versus relaxed environment that's suitable for couples and families alike. All the facilities and restaurants were faultless, we had such a great time and thoroughly enjoyed all the food on offer! the... More

We have stayed at the Watergate Bay Hotel before and also dine there every time we are on holiday in Cornwall which is 2 to 3 times a year. We love it's vibrancy and beach vibe and the young staff are overwhelmingly pleasant ( only one unaccommodating kitchen assistant when one of the breakfast items had ran out). The hotel... More

mazing cappucino art!! Would definitely stay again. We stayed on the "taste of the bay" package which also included a lunch at The Beach Hut(another gem,) and an evening meal at Jamie Oliver's Fifteen . . a very special treat. Thank you to everyone.

Booked a weekend for my girlfriend an I in late December, as well as being quite reasonably priced the whole experience was wonderful. Friendly staff, excellent rooms with really comfortable beds. Made use of the restaurant in the evening which is also a good recommendation. Thanks all, will look to see you again.

Really loved this hotel, great location, contemporary decor, really great staff who couldn't be more friendly, nice or helpful. We didn't use the spa facilities or swimming pool but did have a look and they were lovely. The quality of the food in the restaurants was outstanding for both breakfast and dinner. It's next door to Jamie Oliver's fifteen which... More

Stayed for a 3-day "taste of the bay" package deal and I can honestly say I have never had a more pleasant short break stay anywhere. Food was fantastic, staff were friendly and helpful and the standard of the hotel was superb. I will definitely be going back!
