We have just returned from our second stay at Watersmeet and enjoyed every minute. The location is fantastic and overlooks a beautiful rocky beach with a panoramic dining room that makes the most of the view. We stayed with our two young children and found the staff really friendly and accommodating. I can honestly say it is one of the... More

Spent one night here in early May, so it was lovely and quiet. The hotel is perched on the edge of the cliff round the corner from the hustle and bustle of Woolacombe, so very secluded. The views from my bedroom were wonderful. The hotel is decorated in a New England/relaxed style and feels bright, spacious and modern without being... More

We have recently returned from a 5 night stay at the Watersmeet Hotel. We had a deluxe room, it was spacious, clean, airy and very comfortable with a fantastic sea view. We stopped on a dinner bed & breakfast basis and all the food was excellent, eating in the restaurant was a real highlight of our holiday for many reasons.... More

Just back from 3 night stay. Stayed in deluxe room with balcony overlooking the sea - everything just perfect, room spotlessly clean, restaurant serving delicious food with variation to menu each day. For those that like walking it's a haven - can forget driving for a few days - glorious coastal path walks. Great indoor pool and Spa pool. Friendly... More

If you are after a hotel that offers you perfect unspoilt views and an excellent location then this is the place for you but be careful on booking your room! There is a large surcharge for a view which is to be expected. What was not expected was the room with no window at all! This was our room- room... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay however I'm not sure why you were not expecting a sun pipe room on arrival. When you booked the sun pipe room through a third party the room description clearly stated it didn’t have a conventional window. These 2 budget rooms are extremely popular as they offer good value,... More

We only had a one night stop-over (unfortunately), as we were en route as part of a walking holiday, but plan to return for a longer stay in September. The location is wonderful, and the hotel provides excellent standards throughout. Smart, pleasant lounge area and bar, with a more relaxed bistro should you prefer that style of dining, although we... More
