Good things first: this hotel is a stunner for its location. The beach is overwhelmingly beautiful and the sunsets are crazy gorgeous. You couldn’t ask for more. Then the rooms are spacious, comfy beds and nicely decorated. I instantly took to our lovely room. Unfortunately...More

About
Description
Set on a spectacular surfing beach in north Cornwall, Watergate Bay Hotel is so close to the sea that you can watch the surfers from the deck. The hotel has three restaurants as well as Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen More Cornwall right next door, a dedicated surf school – Extreme Academy, year-round beach events and Swim Club, the hotel’s take on a spa. Whether you stay for a glass of wine or a summer holiday, you’ll get a sense of active relaxation – taking time for yourself, relaxing, eating and drinking well whilst getting outdoors and trying something new. Watergate Bay is a breath of fresh air for families. Carefully planned Kids’ Zone activities and dinner reservations mean parents can still find time for themselves on their family holiday. Choose your room, from house rooms to sea-view suites, including dog friendly options and find out what active relaxation means at Watergate Bay Hotel. Less
