Lovely hotel in a et location for getting out and exploring the surrounding area. The beach was nicely secluded when we went and surprisingly peaceful. The rooms, although not entirely to our taste, were nicely decorated and good in size. It seems that its it is more a family hotel than one for couples.

We have just spent 4 nights at this hotel to celebrate my partner's 40th birthday. Had a lovely stay. Feel relaxed and feel like we have had a good break. If you're new to surfing, then check out the extreme academy and ask for Carl. He was awesome and very patient! Food was great and highly recommend Fifteen. Great beach...

Julie and I stayed here with my son, who was visiting from Singapore. The rooms, bedding & pillows were excellent, as was the taster menu at Fifteen and the breakfast before departure. Service at the hotel and Fifteen were also top quality and overall I was very happy with our choice of venue. The beach walk we had in the...

We've stayed at Watergate bay 5 times now. We've done Taste the Bay twice and the Polo on the Beach event once. Watergate bay is a very nice hotel. The rooms are finished to a good standard and the public areas are all pleasant. The food is of a high standard, even in the less formal beach hut. There's a...

I won a weekend stay at the Watergate Bay hotel and it was a real pleasure from start to finish. We brought our two dogs and had a lovely, clean room with plenty of space. The decor is modern and family-friendly, and the indoor pool is fabulous, especially the stunning view out over the beach. The food and drink are...

A good dog friendly hotel that offers fabulous walks on beaches and coastal paths and benefits from fantastic views. We found the hotel very busy with young families and therefore not very relaxing due to the noise levels. The service started off very well but unfortunately got worse throughout the day. Similar with the food quality, started well and ended...

Visited with my husband on their "taste of the bay" deal. Found this hotel to be absolute paradise. They have got the beautiful relaxed vibe just right.
