This was just like home from home, the hosts were lovely people, the rooms were pleasant and had everything needed. The hotel was in a good location just a ten minute walk from the centre of town and a great breakfast was included.

I stayed at The Waters Reach Guest House for two nights. I found this guest house to be welcoming on arrival by the staff. The standard of cleanliness was excellent. The decor was current and modern, and very comfortable.

Just a short overnight stay in a clean and beautifully run Guest House. Immaculate and clean and a fantastic breakfast. The owners were incredibly friendly and nothing was too much trouble. I would definitely recommend this Guest House.

We had a really pleasant stay at the Waters Reach Guest House and Heather and Chris remembered that we had stopped with them before. The room we stayed in was excellent, nice and clean with all the little comforts. We will definitely stop there again when we are down in the area. Mark and Tracy

Forget the chain hotels and treat yourself to a slice of luxury in Dorset. Waters Reach is a short walk from Christchurch and all its charms. Chris & Heather are your genial hosts and look after you as if you are family. The rooms are extremely comfortable, breakfast is top notch. Will defiantly stay again and recommend Waters Reach.

Great stay, just a shame it was too brief. If I'm back in Christchurch again it'll definitely be at Waters Reach! The couple running were extremely helpful and really seemed to take pride in what they were doing. Thoroughly recommended.

“We had a room at the front of the house. It was not noisy, though anyone from a rural area might have noticed some traffic noise in the day time. The en suite shower was ideal after a busy day and tea &coffee etc. were available in the room.”
