We stayed early September, the weather was awesome. The hotel has a great location, but note the parking is a nightmare. Our room was adequate but no air con was not great. The staff in the hotel were really good , in particular Sue, Jo and JoJo. The restaurant has a good choice and the quality of food is excellent... More

Fantastic location, hotel, restaurants, we have just returned and loved the laid back but 5* service, rooms, and general feel, lovely decorated for a stress free stay, will definitely return. All staff are very professional but very friendly and the whole Watergate Bay experience was one to remember.

This was the perfect venue to invite all our family and friends to share our wedding day, and in fact the whole weekend- we had an amazing time! It was made perfect not only by the obviously wonderful location, but, more importantly, by the attitude of the staff- they are all truly incredible. Nothing was ever too much trouble and... More

The food when it came did not disappoint... More

It has a great location right on beach, and very friendly helpful management and staff. The 'living space' or bar area has superb open aspects looking over the bay and... More

we had been looking forward to our stay at Watergate Bay for months. After making the long track to Cornwall, it was somewhat disappointing. The immediate area is quite limited in respect of bars and restaurant options, so it was either repetition, or a drive to Padstow or similar. The room we had was ok, but the wooden floors were...
