We chose a sea view better room this time and it was excellent. The hotel, restaurants and swim club (treatments) were as good this time as last and we really relaxed. Plenty of activities available for those that wanted more sport. The weather was cold, fresh, windy and wet at times, but that didn't deter surfers or the Thundercats racing... More

Excellent in every way! although drinks a tad expensive and food choice in restaurant maybe not to everyone's taste although very nice. Swim Club lounge really a fantastic chill out place. Pool and Hot tub fantastic changing rooms are something else! Although a warning if you want to use the Hot Tub it is a short walk outside, as it... More

Again, we have had a wonderful holiday at Watergate Bay Hotel. Visiting so frequently we know which rooms we like so we had our usual room which after the recent refurbishment is very stylish and comfortable. It's nice to see a hotel keeping things up to scratch rather than banking the money and letting the hotel decor slide. Breakfasts were... More

My partner booked a night bed, breakfast and dinner as a birthday treat for me. We arrived early so my mobile no was taken so as to let us know when we could go into the room. We had a look around and enjoyed a wine at the local pub. An hour latter I received a phone call saying the... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in an Ocean View suite. It was expensive but worth it as the suite was gorgeous with a beautiful freestanding bath in a bay window and a small seating area where we could put our feet up with a book or just gaze out to sea. The hotel is luxurious but with a laid... More

Can't praise this hotel enough - really family friendly with great modern facilities and an amazing pool with outstanding views. To be honest I don't want to tell people too much as it's hard enough to get a room as it is so popular!!!

We stayed here for 3 nights and found everything about the hotel met or exceeded our expectations, except for a few niggles with our room specifically. The facilities and service throughout the hotel, restaurants and swim club were excellent- we really enjoyed the pool and hot tub area! We chose to get a massage each as well and it was... More

Fresh back from our first stay at the wonderful Watergate Bay Hotel. We had a super room (81) in the coach house, as we had our faithful hound in tow, which was very spacious and quiet (joy!) and we loved its beach chic design. We were on a 6 night DBB deal, which meant we ate dinner in "Zacry's" each... More
