There is something really special about this hotel. The tranquil atmosphere they create combined with the extremely well designed classy surroundings, great food and delightful staff make this a perfect place to unwind for a few days. This alone sets it apart from many hotels because in so many areas they get it just right. However the stunningly beautiful location...

This is a lovely Hotel in a great location. The rooms are very good in size and design. The restaurant is excellent and is just a few steps away from Jamie Oliver's restaurant 'Fifteen' which is a wonderful place! The facilities in Watergate Bay are terrific and is without doubt an attractive place to visit. However, whenever I have stayed...

The Watergate Bay Hotel was stunning in all respects. A beautiful quiet room overlooking the bay, excellent food, friendly staff and stunning views. A winter soak in the outdoor hot tub was a highlight! The location is just gorgeous, with a wide sandy beach and cliff-top walks. Definitely a good spot to get away from it all!

We have stayed at the Watergate Bay Hotel before and also dine there every time we are on holiday in Cornwall which is 2 to 3 times a year. We love it's vibrancy and beach vibe and the young staff are overwhelmingly pleasant ( only one unaccommodating kitchen assistant when one of the breakfast items had ran out). The hotel...
