“Best B & B I've visited!”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

Was not expecting too much when we booked but was very surprised and the quality of the rooms presented. We booked two rooms and could fault neither one. Very clean and tidy and one can see they was a lot of pride taken with Waters Reach. Would recommend to anyone. One slight drawback could be the the lack of on site car space when the place is full. Only minor though. If rated #4, what must the top 3 be like?

Stayed July 2012, traveled with friends

This place definitely lives up to its previous reviews. Alan and Wendy cannot do enough to achieve your comfort and nothing is too much trouble for them. Room is very comfortable, decorated to high standard. Breakfast was worth waiting for with lots of choice . Highly recommend this place.

Myself and my Husband stayed here the very first week in August as we wanted a base for the Olympic sailing. It was absolutely fabulous. The couple whom run it are from Cannock, they are absolutely smashing, Alan and Wendy, they make you feel so at home, it is not really like staying in a B and B. The room itself we stayed in Hengisbury, was a nice size, very comfy bed. Lovely tray with lovely biscuits and tea and coffee. Wendy has good taste and it is all layed out beautifully. The Bathroom is massive and it has whirpool in the bath, which was also lovely too. I slept really well both nights and the breaffast was nice too, but neither of us wanted anything cooked. Wendy does supply gluten free cereals, so if you have allergies, she does cater for them. This place is very handy also for the Train Station, five minutes up the road and the Town Centre is only a ten minute walk on. Apparently Hengisbury Head is not far to go too from the B and B, which is supposed to be very beautiful. I would definitely use this place again.

Room Tip: Hengisbury gorgeous.

Booked this B and B at the last minute, read the reviews but still couldn't believe how lovely our stay was going to be...well it was perfect...the cleanliness was superb, as Wendy commented they aim for the room to appear that it was being used for the first time...that was certainly the case, spotless, very comfy beds, lovely linen, nice quality toiletries and white fluffy towels...the breakfast was 5 star, what a selection for a B and B....super friendly hosts and an ideal situation for attractions around the Christchurch area, with a bus stop outside if needed...what more can I say....try it...you won't be disappointed...

Room Tip: They are all nice...we opted for the back twin as it was so hot at the time and as it was on the fir...

Spent 2 night at Waters Reach and was very impressed with the high standard of accomodation and fantastic breakfast. Well done Wendy and Alan for providing such a great place to stay in Christchurch and for your first class hospitality.
Looking forward to staying at Waters Reach again in the not too distant future.

My wife & I have just returned home after another 3 night break at Waters Reach. Everything about this guest house is perfect. Wendy & Alan have set a very high standard & work very hard to maintain it. This visit we stayed in the room with the whirlpool bath. Top class, very nice for lovers of a relaxing soak, shower also fitted. Beds, pillows, towels, cleanliness all excellent plus all the little extras that made the stay more enjoyable. Breakfast fantastic with all requirements catered for. Always our no.1 place to stay in this area. The weather let us down this time but Wendy & Alan did not. The perfect hosts. Thank you.

Room Tip: All rooms are good.
