I have wanted to stay at Watersmeet hotel for absolutely years. This was a gift for Christmas from my lovely boyfriend. The boy did good. We had a 3 night break over the New Year, along with the New Years Eve gala night. Fabulous. Room excellent, staff hard working and friends brilliant.

Lovely sized family room with the most fantastic deck and view, comfortable bar and restaurants - exactly what the doctor ordered for a post Xmas chill out. All of the staff we came into contact with were ultra friendly and helpful too. Loved the size of the hotel - not too big and not too small. Just perfect, many thanks...

We had a lovely two day break before Christmas. Can't fault this excellent hotel. The staff are excellent, the steam room was steaming, the pool was clean, the food was excellent and the views from our room and from the restaurant were amazing! We'll be returning in 2017 without a doubt.
