Set on a beach in north Cornwall, Watergate Bay Hotel is so close to the sea that you can watch the surfers while you eat. It's about the balance in life: getting among the elements, eating and drinking well and having fun. The Bay has a dedicated surf school, year-round events, Swim Club, the hotel's take on a spa and three restaurants. Eat at sea level in The Beach Hut. Take your time over seasonal produce in Zacry's Restaurant. Pass the sharing boards in The Living Space, which has a staggering bar selection, especially if you're a gin lover. From standard house doubles to sea-view-suites, no two bedrooms are the same. And with family suites, dog friendly rooms, carefully planned Kids' Zone activities and dinner reservations, parents can find time for themselves on their family holiday.

A wonderful hotel, amazing staff and gorgeous beach. So lovely to relax in chilled surroundings and have our dog join us in all aspects of our weekend. Food was wonderful too with some good vegan/GF options. Loved the Living Space and feel of the hotel. All in all a brilliant

I could describe how warm the staff are, how comfortable the lounge and restaurant is, or how enjoyable the pool, sauna and hot tub are. But none of that really gets to the true magic of the Watergate Bay Hotel experience. My husband and I stayed for the first time in March

Another lovely stay at this very friendly hotel. Relaxing. Nothing was too much for any of the staff who looked after myself, my wife and our cavashon dog - Bailey. The service was excellent and room 71 was great. Even a pint of fresh milk in the fridge for tea and coffeee.

Spent 3 nights here with my family joining for 2 nights. Was fabulous. The overall stay was not perfect (orders came up wrong, as did some bills) but they were rectified and agreed with ease. Not sure if the Taste of the Bay eating in 3 different restaurants is worthwhile if

The Hotel is big and airy in the main part so temperature is comfortable all year round. I would certainly ring them as some new rooms may have Aircon but maybe not the stunning view.They are extremely helpful and always do their best to help.
