My partner and I book a couple of nights here after stopping in for coffee in the summer and loving the atmosphere of the place. We had a fantastic stay, the staff we extremely helpful and friendly and we were even offered to use the swim club for free on the day we were checking out, we stayed in the coach house and were very pleasantly surprised with the room size.

We will definitely be returning to this marvellous hotel.

We have just returned from a short break in Cornwall and stayed here for 3 nights with our 5 month old son. We were only meant to be staying for 2 nights but liked it so much that we asked to stay another night.
I cannot fault the service. We were warmly welcomed and even though we were early our room was ready for us. The reception staff were always very helpful and answered any query as quickly as possible. We stayed in one of the 'best sea view' rooms and it was great, spotlessly clean and lovely decor. The freestanding bath in the room that you could lie in and look over the bay was amazing. When we booked I had requested that we were allocated a room on the second floor (based on other reviews on here) and we were given a room on the second floor. We moved rooms for the third night but only to the one next door which was equally as nice. The housekeeping staff moved all of our luggage for us and couldn't have been more helpful. We ordered room service one night and the service was quick and friendly. It was also refreshing to find out that there wasn't an additional charge on top of the normal menu price for room service.
There are some negative comments on here regarding children at the hotel. The hotel is a family hotel and the staff were all great with our baby. There were some children there who were mainly pre-school age. They were all well behaved (for little children!) and I didn't notice any disinterested parents anywhere. We stayed midweek so I can't comment on school holidays or weekends.
The infinity pool is a lovely place to watch the sunset in the evening as is the outdoor hot tub. There are family swim times and adult only swim times too. We took our baby swimming a couple of times. On the second occasion we were made to feel slightly uncomfortable by a couple of the other adults using the pool even though it was still during the family swim session. That was a shame as we were quiet and made a big effort to keep out of their way so we didn't disturb them.
The food (quality and choice) and service at breakfast was great. It was in the Living Space too.
All in all we had a lovely break and highly recommend this hotel. We can't wait to return!

Room Tip: I would highly recommend room 22.

I have just returned from a 3 day Taste of the Bay - this is the third visit but the first since the new spa opened. Watergate Bay is a gorgeous getaway in beautiful relaxed surroundings. Yes there are lots of children in the hotel, but this is the seaside so what do you expect?! However what made this trip was the newly opened spa which is amazing. I had two hours of treatments - massage, body scrub and manicure. All of a good standard in lovely treatment rooms. The lounge area of the spa is fabulous - views to die for, lots of sofas, rugs to wrap yourself up in and a roaring fire. I could have spent the whole 3 days there and actually got up early every day so I could use the pool and then have a cup of tea afterwards by the fire. Only a few small gripes: no drinking water in the rooms and the evening meal in the hotel restaurant was very dull, which is odd as the bar food in the hotel lounge is good - imaginative and tasty - are there separate kitchens? I always leave Watergate Bay feeling very relaxed, with the memory of having had a real break.
