So lucky we found you... last minute break away with our 3 children. Right on the beautiful beach. Our family Room was spacious & well presented. Living space bar great for chilling out & cocktails. Swim club amazing with cosy seating area. Breathtaking views. The best breakfast we've ever had in a hotel. Friendly staff & spotlessly clean. We came...

Room lovely but could be too warm, battled about leaving balcony door open at night. View wonderful from second floor, sea facing rooms. Great facilities (pool; sun deck; club house). Two main problems: man smoking e-cigarette in restaurant which took two requests before spoken to and though he continued no one intervened; also wedding on Saturday afternoon/night so our view...

My partner and I have just returned from a weekend birthday break at Watergate Bay and the hotel exceeded expectations. From the beach-hut decor to the amazing infinity pool and outdoor hot tub, it's the perfect beach-side holiday spot. It was an added bonus that the hotel is dog-friendly so we brought along our puppy who loved running on the...

My husband and I stayed at Watergate Bay for the third time and we were not disappointed. We had a room in the Coach House, which was contemporarily decorated in a beach hut style. The room had a very comfortable king size bed with high quality linen and the biggest fluffy white towels I have ever used. Amenities included robes,...

I went down to do some surfing with extreme academy who are affiliated with the hotel. The hotel is lovely, it has modern decor but it suits the hotel. The surrounding area is beautiful, very picturesque and lovely for a romantic walk. Breakfast had a wide selection, it was good quality and delicious! The restaurant 'living space' serves great food...

This was our second visit and we loved our first visit so much we where a bit worried that it wouldn't be as good as we remember it if not better!. I can't complain about anything and I like complaining! Really clean, decor with good taste, you surrounded by quality where ever you are. The pool is amazing and again...

Stunning location right close to the beach. Our room was lovely although there were a few marks on the wall but nothing to affect the comfort and it was clean. We ate in the restaurant on one night, good choice on menu & tasty food. Staff were friendly and helpful. Quite pricey but worth it.

I think I've reviewed Watergate Bay before, so I won't dwell on stuff. It's my favourite hotel in the world, and the joint best hotel in Cornwall. Hope to stay here at least once a year for the rest of my life.

I have stayed at WB a couple of times and visited for food countless other times! This really is a special place with stunning, relaxed design, great rooms and very good food! There really is no need to leave the bay, even if you're staying for a week you wouldn't get fed up with the variety of restaurants/ bars here....
