Lovely location, great room, fabulous indoor pool, good service. Nice L'Occtaine toiletries offered in rooms. Nice sandwiches at lunchtime - recommend rustic chips. Tasty breakfast...although as only had 2 x members of staff on duty they were clearly rushed off their feet...and tables not being cleared promptly so guests having to wait. We waited 15 mins before being acknowledged and... More

I am sorry to read about your breakfast experience, this is not the norm here at the Watersmeet. We do hold weddings here out of season but do not wish any of our guests... More

This hotel has fantastic views of the sea. We stayed in a family room which was very spacious and had a comfortable bed. The sauna, jaccuzi and spa pool were excellent, clean and relaxing. The car park is compact and not much room for manouvre. We had booked for the fine dining restaurant as it was my birthday, but the... More

I booked a table for 11 members of our family to celebrate my husband's 70th birthday. I booked the table on-line and had confirmation of the booking within minutes. They very kindly organised for the table to be decorated and took delivery of a birthday cake earlier in the day which was presented after we had finished our meal. The... More

Visited here as a last day treat to holidays, with high expectations. Drinks took a long time to arrive. Cocktails were over priced and not great. Food arrived quickly and was (at best) average......think standard "pub grub". Bill came even quicker (without asking). Overall very expensive for what it was.

Very peaceful seting for a lovely hotel, quite pampering in it feel. The restaurant sits at the end of the building looking straight out over the sea

We had a short weekend break here in early December for my wife's birthday. The room was very well situated and had excellent views of the bay area. The service and food were outstanding. Staff are very friendly and very efficient, they even put some complimentary Champagne in our room for my wife's birthday.
