Stayed at Watergate Bay Hotel for 3 nights on a "Taste of the Bay" deal. Lovely side view room, beautiful light decor - very relaxing - room had everything we needed. Living Space - when we arrived on Sunday afternoon it was very busy (maybe lots of day visitors) it was quieter in the week and a gorgeous place to... More

We've stayed at Watergate bay 5 times now. We've done Taste the Bay twice and the Polo on the Beach event once. Watergate bay is a very nice hotel. The rooms are finished to a good standard and the public areas are all pleasant. The food is of a high standard, even in the less formal beach hut. There's a... More

I won a weekend stay at the Watergate Bay hotel and it was a real pleasure from start to finish. We brought our two dogs and had a lovely, clean room with plenty of space. The decor is modern and family-friendly, and the indoor pool is fabulous, especially the stunning view out over the beach. The food and drink are... More

A good dog friendly hotel that offers fabulous walks on beaches and coastal paths and benefits from fantastic views. We found the hotel very busy with young families and therefore not very relaxing due to the noise levels. The service started off very well but unfortunately got worse throughout the day. Similar with the food quality, started well and ended... More

Visited with my husband on their "taste of the bay" deal. Found this hotel to be absolute paradise. They have got the beautiful relaxed vibe just right. Our side view room was fabulous with a great view of the bay and sunlight pouring in all day. Everything we needed was there (hairdryer, kettle and tea/coffee/milk, bluetooth speakers, free wifi, safe,... More

An enjoyable and relaxing break ,a very warm welcome, with amazing views. The weather was beautiful ,and it was so pleasant being able to sit on the terrace sipping champagne. The food in both the restaurant and the living space was beautifully cooked and presented .

We decided to call in for a drink here after driving to watergate bay to check it out. Very nice surroundings and views but.... we felt unwelcome. We were only staying for a drink (an overpriced one at that and not the best lager we have tasted at £4.60 a pint) the atmosphere was not friendly and if you moved... More

This hotel is superb. From the location, food, rooms, spa facilities and service. It is expensive I will give you that, but if you are debating whether the money is worth it or not - it 100% is. You will not regret staying here, going for dinner or just popping in for a drink.

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights as part of the "Taste of the Bay" package. The hotel delivered the perfect relaxing break we were hoping for. All the staff throughout the hotel were friendly and helpful and made you feel welcome. We stayed in a standard sea view room which was clean, simply decorated and comfortable with... More
