Just spent a lovely weekend 4th-7th November at this guest house. What a special place, very homely and the little extras to make guests feel special. Lovely hosts Chris & Heather and the breakfast is tops. 5 star all round. Thanks again Chris & Garry :)

Forget the chain hotels and treat yourself to a slice of luxury in Dorset. Waters Reach is a short walk from Christchurch and all its charms. Chris & Heather are your genial hosts and look after you as if you are family. The rooms are extremely comfortable, breakfast is top notch. Will defiantly stay again and recommend Waters Reach.

Great stay, just a shame it was too brief. If I'm back in Christchurch again it'll definitely be at Waters Reach! The couple running were extremely helpful and really seemed to take pride in what they were doing. Thoroughly recommended.

“We had a room at the front of the house. It was not noisy, though anyone from a rural area might have noticed some traffic noise in the day time. The en suite shower was ideal after a busy day and tea &coffee etc. were available in the room.”
