This is an older hotel that is in the process of complete refurbishment to bring it into line with newer establishments and what a great job they're doing. My wife & I were having a weekend here to celebrate a wedding anniversary so I'd pre-booked massages for us both on the Sunday morning, I booked the bed, breakfast and dinner... More

We had a drink in the bar after a long walk on the beach. The amazing views were a great setting for a early evening drink. The bar was busy, family and dog friendly. Although we weren't staying in the hotel, pool, and menus looked inviting. Friends we were with, have stayed and said it was very nice.

Although we have stayed before this was special as it was our 10th wedding anniversary and we left the kids at home. At the reservations stage I had been disappointed that some of the better rooms were unavailable due to refurbishment. However, on arrival, we were congratulated on our anniversary and offered a complimentary upgrade to room 21 which must... More

The bad: We stayed on a paint fume/filled corridor which affected my husbands asthma. I don't think this was acceptable given the cost. No real apology from the hotel when we fed this back either. We also booked a couples massage 'not cheap' and the fire alarm went off half way through! Less than relaxing....... The in room tea and... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in January and didn't want to leave. The atmosphere of the hotel is just brilliant, relaxed, friendly, polite and efficient. Our room was spotless. Our food was amazing both in the evening and for breakfast, in fact I think it's the best scrambled egg I've tasted! Well done to all the staff and management.... More

Beautiful , relaxed hotel. Fantastic facilities, super comfortable bedrooms, great for families and especially large groups of families/friends to stay together. Amazing breakfast and delicious food all the time. Beautiful, effortless views and only a hop and skip to the beach. We try to visit every year for a long, relaxed weekend of surfing, walking, eating and relaxing. Always fab... More

My boyfriend booked Watergate Bay Hotel as an anniversary surprise after hearing me talk about wanting to visit for so long! We stayed in an ocean view suite which was absolutely beautiful! The view was spectacular and the furnishing complimented the hotel perfectly. The bath with a view was a definite highlight! Breakfast in the morning was lovely and staff... More

Surprise mini break for an anniversary. Great to be back here and see the new layout of the restaurant since our first visit. Still love this place and very happy with all aspects, reception were particularly helpful in finding a pub in Newquay showing the F1. The only thing I'd change is the knowledge of one of the waiters about... More

My room was great - crisp linen and mega comfortable bed and pillows. My room had no view, but not a problem because I hardly spent any time in my room as the facilities in the hotel were very comfortable. I have read reviews of people complaining about the lack of a view - you get what you pay for... More

We have been here many times over the last decade. Can't beat rhe location or food. Service good. We have been unfortunate to have our car hit twice in the hotel carpark...park carefully as it is a difficult car park and unfortunately people drive off without admitting damage!The family rooms with separate bunk rooms are great.
