Waters Reach Guest House
Ranked #3 of 32 Christchurch B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 October 2013

My partner and I stayed in the Hengistbury Suite on the ground floor. Although the room faced the road the room was very quiet, incredibly comfortable and luzurious and also immaculate - the jacuzzi was a welcome surprise and we made full use of it!! The room had a full range of teas and coffees with a beautiful home made lemon drizzle cake - nice touch. There was also some tumblers and wine glasses which made us feel very comfortable about drinking in the room - unlike some other B&Bs we've stayed in. Breakfast was a fantastic affair and the only thing missing was the chef's hat when Chris came into the dining room to check everything was to our liking!
I'm not normally a fan of B&Bs and I understand Heather and Chris have recently taken over the business - I can only say that we will definitely return. The decor is very comfortable and relaxing. They were amazing hosts and they couldn't do enough to make sure our stay was comfortable and bespoke - even suggesting where to hire some bikes and also the best routes to cycle! I'm trying to think of something negative and actually can only think of one thing - that we had only booked one night!! Thanks Heather and Chris we will definitely be back and will certainly recommend Water's Reach to family and friends!

Room Tip: Hengistbury Suite on the ground floor has amazing jacuzzi.

My husband and I stayed at Waters Reach last week and I've got to say that we couldn't have been more pleased with the extremely high standards. The room (The Hengistbury) was spacious, immaculately clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was superb, with an impressive selection that catered for every taste and appetite, and Chris and Heather were great hosts, helping us to feel relaxed and welcome throughout our 2 night stay. I would thoroughly recommend this guest house to anyone considering a stay in beautiful Christchurch, Dorset.

New owners have recently taken over this B&B. The standard is excellent Chris & Heather are worthy successors. We had the Hengistbury suite on the ground floor, which was roomy and very comfortable. The en-suite was luxurious, everywhere spotless. Breakfast was a very tasty meal with portions as we asked . Although this was only a one night stay, we will certainly return again for a longer period.

Room Tip: Ground floor room faces the road, but is good for disabled people.

My girlfriend and I stayed recently and had the wonderful Hengistbury suite. Very spacious, clean and well finished room with everything we needed for a short break and more, including a Jacuzzi bath! The welcome Lemon Drizzle cake was a lovely touch too.

Service wise Chris and Heather were very helpful taking time to point out various local attractions, restaurants and pubs and helping with any questions we had. Apart from reading the below reviews you would never realise they had only just taken the business over.

Breakfast was varied offering something for everyone. The cooked breakfast went down a treat!

Overall Waters Reach offers a very enjoyable stay and a great location that I would definitely visit again.

Room Tip: You cant go wrong with the Hengisbury suite.

Great location near the centre of Christchurch and the standard of accommodation is excellent.
Heather and Chris are very welcoming and attentive and the breakfast is fantastic.
I can think of nothing that needs improvement and will definitely stay there again.

As was stated by one of the other guests reviews,me and my fiancé also stayed the first week after the new owners had taken over. With this in mind I could easily say that the Chris and heather made us feel very welcome,they are a lovely couple who made our weekend feel special, with ideas of what restaurants to eat at and nice areas to visit if you fancy a little stroll. The rooms where lovely, luxurious and clean and I believe we will be revisiting waters reach after we are married.
Many thanks to Chris and heather .

This was our 2n d trip to Waters Reach, we stayed the same weekend last year and had a lovely time so thought we would return. When we confirmed our time of arrival we had an e mail to say that Wendy and Alan had sold the B&B and therefore when we arrived they would not there, this was a bit of a bombshell and we weren't to sure what to expect.
As it turned out we needn't have worried. Heather and Chris are a lovely couple the rooms were just as lovely comfy and clean as before. It transpire that we, along with 2 other couples, were their 1st guests as they had only moved in that week. On that basis we can't fault anything that they did. To a returning visitor the breakfasts may not seem the same, but given time we're sure all will be well.
If you are a returning visitor give them a chance, if you are new you won't know any diference.
oh yes one nice touch was that Heather left us a very nice Lemon drizzle loaf in our room Yummy!
