A bit out of the way but worth the trip and the money. Excellent accommodation - triple aspect room 23 is the one to go for despite the extra charge. Very friendly and helpful staff and good though pricey food.

Thank you for your review and complimentary feedback. Room 23 is certainly a great room, it is a deluxe double sea view room that boasts triple aspect views. We hope to welcome you back to the Watersmeet in the near future.

A four day out of season break looking for some decent cliff top walking. Great! Large bed and room with a modern bathroom. Staff friendly and efficient and after two days were well aware of preferences. The British themed meals were exceptional; integrated and generous. Thoroughly recommend.

On a positive note to begin with, the hotel is in a fabulous spot, the staff, especially on reception were friendly and very helpful with walks information and maps supplied. They had just reopened and the pool was having work done, but this was completed by Friday teatime. The hotel has a lovely calm atmosphere and is very tastefully decorated....

We enjoyed our stay in the hotel. The staff are really helpful and friendly. The breakfast is very good. Such a relief to have a breakfast cooked to order instead of having a buffet of congealed egg and bacon. The only reason this isn't getting a 5 is because of one or two minor blips. The room should have had...

Visited the Watersmeet for two nights in February 2017.

The seaward side of the hotel offers one long, uninterrupted panorama and whether you're reading the paper in the lounge or dining in the restaurant you can enjoy the most wonderful views of the sea and rolling surf. The very best pocket sprung beds; thick, luxurious duvets; crisp white linen and superior memory foam pillows ensure a comfortable night's sleep. The table d'hote and bistro restaurants offer a high standard of cuisine. 2 AA rosette awarded many of the ingredients are locally sourced. On the hotel's doorstep is one of the country's best surfing beaches; a top links golf course.
