Reviewed yesterday NEWvia mobile

We booked two nights in a deluxe room with a sea view and were not disappointed! Wonderful welcome, brilliant position, fantastically clean and comfortable room. Very relaxing and high quality. Bistro restaurant is great value and the breakfast is excellent with breathtaking views. Would recommend to anyone.

Great hotel, smart but casual. Good food , 2 restaurants and great breakfast. Staff very polite and helpful. Would stay again, nice lounge area and good bar service. A very comfortable hotel with great views over the bay, and walking distance from local amenities.

We found this hotel when previously in the area, and thought that it might be ideal for a short break to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary before the family get-together on the following weekend - and we were right! We found a high-quality, comfortable hotel, with super food and attentive and helpful staff. They obviously noted the reason for our...

We had a Terrace Room - admittedly one of the best - but, even so, I think this hotel must score highly on all counts, starting with the Reception and the very friendly reception staff. The decor was very tasteful with comfortable furnishings. Our room was spacious and spotlelssly clean, and we appreciated the L'Occitaine toiletries. amongst other luxuries. We...

Thank you for your recent review. I am sorry to read your experience at the Watersmeet was not up to expectation in regards to your room, Room 40 - a deluxe sea view room with terrace area.

Absolutely LOVED this hotel. Lovely staff. We were greeted by Nicola, who was gorgeous. All the staff were so friendly. We were allocated room 9 but on asking if there was a larger room Nicola offered us room 42 for the first 2 nights, which is on the ground floor next to reception. It is a beautiful, very large room...

On the hotel's doorstep is one of the country's best surfing beaches; a top links golf course.
