Stayed here for the second time on a Spring Taste of The Bay deal. Hotel has been revamped and provides a spectacular setting on a beautiful stretch of Cornish coast. Although a seaside hotel this is an upmarket facility but is warm, friendly and definitely not stuffy. Quite a few families staying here with young children but this was not... More

We stayed here for three nights with our two friends and two dogs. The weather wasn't the best but the hotel was amazing. It was spotlessly clean despite allowing dogs in the bar area and rooms. The staff were so lovely and couldn't do enough for you. Everytime we ordered a drink we were asked if the dogs needed water... More

Watergate Bay is one of our favourite places in the UK. It was really good to stay for a few nights in the refurbished Watergate Bay Hotel with its contemporary feel and new facilities. Since we last stayed it has undergone a transformation and is now a brilliant hotel with a super restaurant Zackry's! The relaxed atmosphere makes this a... More

WOW, WOW, WOW, summed up in three words. My wife had her heart set on staying here for quite a while, and eventually booked us in for one night with a couples massage. The plan was to just relax and chill for the two days, with no stress or worries, and this hotel from the minute you walk through the... More

Excellent location and lovely sea view room with everything you require from hotel room. Amazing meal at 15 on Saturday night. However far too many noisy children treading sand through hotel which is fine if you have young children with you but doesn't create peaceful or romantic ambience. Breakfast noisy, busy and staff over stretched. Tables needed clearing, chaotic and... More

The bedroom suite was spacious and had a huge bed and everything that you could want . The living room was a big hit with its beautiful views ,... More

I really love this hotel. Husband and I just had a three day very foodie "Taste of the Bay" break there, which included dinner at Zacry's the hotel's restaurant, lunch in their Beach Hut cafe, and dinner at the adjacent Jamie Oliver's Fifteen. It is the combination of relaxed ambience, beautiful contemporary but simple decor, and stunning location that does... More

We stayed for only one night passing through Cornwall and had a booking at Fifteen Cornwall which is next door. The room, facilities, staff, breakfast were all fabulous. Stunning location and magnificent view.
