As newly weds we decided to stay in the Hengistbury suit, what an amazing clean and comfortable room. The Jacuzzi bath is lovely after a nice walk along the local beach. It is a great location if you don't drive, bus stop and train station in walking distance. From the moment we walked into Waters Reach we felt welcomed. Everything... More
