Lovely spacious bathroom with powerful shower & plenty of white fluffy towels. Good choice for breakfast with homemade bread an added bonus. Chris & Heather were very friendly & welcoming hosts , we would not... More

I combined a friend's wedding with a short holiday in Christchurch/Dorset and stayed for 5 nights at the Waters Reach Guest House. Perfect location: 3 min from station, 5 min from center and quai. Cordial and easy check-in. I stayed in the Mudeford/single room facing the garden. Modern decoration and free wifi! A fresh lemon drizzle cake was awaiting me.... More

Situated on a fairly busy road I was pleasantly surprised how quiet Waters Reach was and I slept well. Exceptionally clean and Chris was a welcoming host.A short 10 minute walk into the town centre always a good thing.

This really is a wonderful place to stay. Chris and Heather are the perfect hosts, being friendly, helpful and welcoming but not at all intrusive. The room and en-suite were well presented, the refreshments tray very well stocked and the bed was super comfy (I did wonder if we'd fit it in our little car but alas no). The breakfasts... More

Could not have asked for anything more from a guest house. Very spacious rooms, very clean with everything provided. Breakfast was lovely with lots of choices. Definitely worth a visit, would certainly recommend.
