We visited a few venues before booking the watergate bay hotel and I must say me made the perfect choice. I will start with the location it is fantastic and a view like nowhere else, all through the planning of the wedding all staff that we dealt with were very helpful and accommodating to our needs and nothing was too...

What can I say total waste of money and complete let down. The staff are completely rude unhelpful and got our dinner bookings totally wrong and then blamed us for there mistake. As for the bar all I will say is if you are in need of a quick drink don't bother as you will probably end up with dehydration.... More

We booked in for the Taste of the Bay deal - three nights including meals at the hotel's restaurant Zacry's, The Beach Hut and Jamie's Fifteen. The hotel was excellent - accommodation was first class (we paid extra for a sea view - recommended), staff were friendly, helpful and informative and facilities were second to none. The deal itself, while... More

We had a front facing better room which was great. Highly recommend and we will return but will fly down as the... More

Didn't stay at the hotel but stopped here for a late lunch. Got a lovely table on the terrace, and the sun came out as we arrived. Shared a crayfish and lobster wrap (yummy) and some amazing crispy fluffy fries with a glass of wine. Beautiful view of the bay. Felt relaxed and refreshed afterwards!

On walking up to this hotel I never thought they would let me take my dog in with me but yes they do! We sat on the terrace overlooking the sea and enjoyed a crab sandwich and homemade soup of the day. Both were absolutely delicious and very good value for money considering it's a hotel! Would thoroughly recommend!

This is a pleasant hotel with stunning views it has a lot of children during school holidays but anyone considering it as a destination should also understand that it has lots of preschool children outside of term time The communal areas especially "the living space" is a large open area with high ceilings and floors the noise levels can therefore...

We returned last week from a fantastic 4 night stay with our baby boy (8 months). The Hotel is amazing with breathtaking view from the communal areas which are difficult to beat. Swimming pool, Social spaces and decor were all beautifully thought out and executed. Stunning. The Food was also excellent. We booked Dinner Bed and Breakfast and this included... More
