A great hotel in a very picturesque setting. My husband and I spent a night here on the way to a friends 50th. We will definitely come back with our children. The only thing I would say is that rooms that front onto the road are very noisy. And I would recommend you pay slightly more and have a quieter...

Wow! What an amazing place. We were booked in (unfortunately) only for one night, but the experience we had made it feel like a lovely seaside break. Highlights: The Extreme Academy - we booked an extreme day (surf lessons and kite buggying) with lunch at the Beach Hut. The activities were great and the service from all the guys running...

Spent a fortune on a night at this place and were very disappointed with the disinterest of the staff. We were made to feel particularly unwelcome by the bar staff who made it clear they wanted to go home at 10pm. I mentioned this on the feedback form and got an email 2 weeks after we got home to say...

We were staying in an apartment opposite but decided to eat here a couple of evenings and wasn't disappointed. Lovely setting with outdoor seating to watch the sunset across the ocean. Very stylish inside with a separate games area to suit older kids. Staff attentive and eager to please. Will definitely return.

This is a hotel we keep going back to, despite a few niggles, primarily because of its location, the great staff and the opportunities it offers to surf and enjoy life by the sea for a few days. I do agree wholeheartedly with a previous reviewer about school hols though. We too are restricted as to when we can stay...

This was our third stay at Watergate Bay, but first in the midst of school holidays. Room in Coach House was large and spacious, it was a Best Room and had a fridge, as some have commented there are no in room fridges. No view, but that is the trade off for larger room and front of hotel has all...

We have stayed at the Watergate Bay Hotel as a couple on many occasions but this year our children and grand-children came too for my 60th birthday. We had a wonderful time and the facilities, wonderful location, sunshine and friendly, helpful staff ensured that our stay was perfect. We visited Jamie's Fifteen restaurant at lunch time and were given a...

I stayed there with my best friend over the weekend of Boardmasters 2014, arrived on the Friday and the hotel was closed to non-residents as the hotel was fully booked and Watergate was busy with the rest of the festival goers (normally the hotel is open to non-residents). Always have someone at reception 24/7 and security on the doors after...

Gorgeous hotel. Beautiful decor. Fabulous food. Superb staff. I've visited twice now, and always recommend this hotel to friends and clients. (I should be on commission 😉) Thank you Watergate Bay. Can't wait to visit you again.
