Made several visits for morning tea and coffee with accompanying biscuits. Service and drinks excellent. The view is superb especially on a nice day!

Thank you for your review and for visiting us on multiple occasions for morning tea and coffee. We certainly do offer a superb view to take it whilst enjoying a hot drink and our homemade shortbreads! We hope to welcome you back to the Watersmeet soon.

Had a lovely cup of peppermint tea (£4.10p ouch) and a juice sat on their beautiful sun terrace overlooking the bay. Amazing location, just couldn't stretch to the circa £350 a night!
Staff friendly too albeit rushed off their feet, will keep my eye out for a groupon deal! (highly unlikely)..

I don't want to write this hotel off, in fact I am going to give it another go in a month, but I think the owners need to know how several people, including myself and husband feel about our stay this weekend.
Rooms - no robes, tissues, bath slip matt, and clearly the room hadn't been hoovered as I had an allergic reaction to the dust. The second night after I talked to the staff my room was cleaned properly.
Other guest thoughts
More staff needed urgently
More service in the garden and pool for drinks. Guest currently have to go up and down to the bar which was understaffed all weekend.
Patio around the pool is very poor and needs regrouting URGENTLY. My husband split his big toe nail due to uneven slabs.
Lack of sun umberellas in garden and patio by pool and on suite terraces
One lady had to leave her meal to go and get a refil of her drink because the staff were just so busy and they were flat out.
Suites should be just that, a little bit special. Fridges and air con fans or units should be standard.
Bathrooms should be immaculate
Tissues as standard in all rooms
Coffee machines in suites would be good
Pool towels were in short supply at times, more need ordering
Queueing at the bar 7 deep was not good, especially when it's hot and you're looking to come away to relax.
It's all about attention to detail if you want to maintain a certain level you price the hotel out at.
I believe the owner of this hotel are heading in the right direction with the on going up grading, but it should be all sorted by the begining of the season.
We are back in July, so a months time and I hope to see a few changes. The staff you currently have are fantastic, but because of the work load, they can come across to some as abrupt but they aren't, it's just they can't stop and chat. This is so important to establish on going customers year on year.

Celebrated a birthday with family.
Superb location - we sat on the terrace overlooking the sea. Fortunately the weather was spectacular.Large umbrellas shielded from the blazing sun. But even on a rainy day the views are still stunning.
Food was excellent, we had the sole and the beetroot risotto. Both well cooked, generous portions and beautifully presented.
TJ - one of our servers was one of the most pleasant servers I have had anywhere in a long time. He deserves special recognition.
This place is hard to beat in N. Devon!

Amazing views across the bay and excellent food served with a little extra finesse. We ate in the Bistro that is more informal than the main restaurant, but is equally lovely. The portions are generous and the bill was less than expected! Good value.
