Have stayed at Waters Reach before under different management, but the high standard of cleanliness, lovely breakfast and friendly welcoming atmosphere has remained the same. Will definitely visit again

My wife and I stayed at Waters Reach from 15th August for four nights. We had the room at the front on the first floor which was called Friars Cliff. All the rooms have their own name. The room was very well appointed with a good sized comfortable bed and pillows. The bathroom has a walk in shower and there... More

After a long journey from Pembrokeshire, the welcome was just what I needed. Nothing was too much trouble. I booked the last single ( over the weekend 22/23 July) for a wedding at Parley Manor just 5 miles away. The location was great as I was able to book a meal at The Ship, just over 5 minutes walk away.... More

We booked into the Waters Reach guest house from late rooms purely based on location - we were due down for a family wedding and were hugely disorganised so I hadn't even read any reviews. I was astounded, this is the best hotel/ B&B we have ever stayed in. They were so accommodating when I phoned up to change check-in... More

Extremely nice front of house room. Comfortable bed, nice modern decor. Loved the spacious modern shower, better than some 4 star hotels I've stayed in. Good tea and coffee facilities and little extras. Room cleaned meticulously every day. Great choice of breakfast from cooked to all types of cereal, jams, marmalade, juices and best of all, fresh fruit all laid... More

Water's reach was a fantastic stay. Two nights in the Highcliff Twin room. Clean, attractive décor, cosy but not too small. Best of all was Chris's home made lemon drizzle cake awaiting us on arrival in the room. A good selection of tea, coffee, hot choc and biscuits. Fresh semi skimmed milk available immediately when requested. At breakfast there was... More
