Set on a spectacular surfing beach in north Cornwall, Watergate Bay Hotel is so close to the sea that you can watch the surfers from the deck. The hotel has three restaurants as well as Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen Cornwall right next door, a dedicated surf school – Extreme Academy, year-round beach events and Swim Club, the hotel’s take on a spa. Whether you stay for a glass of wine or a summer holiday, you’ll get a sense of active relaxation – taking time for yourself, relaxing, eating and drinking well whilst getting outdoors and trying something new. Watergate Bay is a breath of fresh air for families. Carefully planned Kids’ Zone activities and dinner reservations mean parents can still find time for themselves on their family holiday. Choose your room, from house rooms to sea-view suites, including dog friendly options and find out what active relaxation means at Watergate Bay Hotel.

Stayed as a family early Jan 2019 - we had partial sea-view room. We mainly had a view of the beach car park but it didn't matter. Everything from the lovely staff, ambience, facilities for children, the pristine cleanliness, our large stylish cosy room, gorgeous spa and pool

Just after Christmas and a birthday bash to contend with ! How wrong could I be. Pain free car parking and early check in. The room was fantastic! All facilities available but the bar beckoned. Early birthday drinks and a cheeky prawn sandwich, all realistically priced. A quick

We stayed for the new year break. It was fabulous from beginning to end. The hotel is gorgeous, the pool lovely (and surprisingly easy to find it quiet), and the staff are universally delightful. They must have been super busy over this break but nothing was too much trouble,

We were allocated a family room in the annexe section of the hotel. It was dark, uninviting and looked directly onto the carpark. We were so disappointed, and as an alternative couldn't be offered, we made the decision not to stay and drove home. We've stayed a few times

Hello, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm sorry the room you booked did not meet your expectations and you decided not to stay the night. We do try to be as honest as possible with our room descriptions and openly advise one of our house family rooms is an accessible room with access direct from the car park. Our reservations team will always try to accommodate any specific room requests when requested so if you do consider returning, please contact us directly to discuss room options so that we are able to meet expectations. Kind regards, Mark

Will you be having any air con added in any of the rooms ?
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.

"As foe Sea view or partial sea view"
"seaview without a doubt"
"Sea view rooms are worth the extra. Also three day mid-week deal including dinner at Jamie's Fifteen, next door."
"We overlooked the car park and bay with no issues of noise. Our room was large and spacious with great views"
"avoid the back, 30s and 20s - no view and noisy due to restuarant extractor fan."
