“Impressive attention to detail”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

It is Chris and Heather's attention to detail that makes Waters Reach stand out - for example, they remembered our names, kindly carried our bags to our room, and provided tasty homemade lemon drizzle cake to welcome us. The room was spacious and attractive. There was a wide variety of homemade items on the breakfast menu and the food was well-cooked and beautifully presented. The only small downside was that the taps/shower make a noise when in use, so you can hear other guests - however this does mean a wonderfully powerful shower, and Chris and Heather turn the power assist off at night so it is not intrusive. Overall we had an enjoyable stay and were very well-looked after, and would certainly recommend Waters Reach to anyone staying in Christchurch.

Quite simply is a fantastic place, Heather and Chris were so good to me and my friends, I was staying in Christchurch as i was getting married over the weekend, and they catered for all our requests amazingly. It made a huge difference to my weekend and allowed me to not stress over timings or anything like. The breakfast was fantastic, not just the quality but the selection. Have a great eye for all the little touches! the lemon cake for each room was especially nice. I cant thank them enough for all their help and flexibility and would recommend anyone wanting to stay in Christchurch or the surrounding area to stay here. Ignore the rating about the swimming pool, as i got carried away with the 5 star ratings :-). Excellent B+B

I stayed here in a beautifully decorated twin room for a few days. The room was very clean and had very comfortable beds. The room facilities included a good shower with toiletries provided - shampoo; conditioner; shower gel; hand wash and even cotton buds and cotton-wool pads. Also hairdryer provided. The owners are lovely - friendly and helpful and even provided a lovely home baked cake in our room on arrival.
Breakfast is well cooked with a good choice on the menu including cereal, juices, hand made jams; toast; yogurts and fruit plus the usual Full English (with choice of eggs) as well as omelette with a range of filling and eggs benedict.
The Guest House is a short 5 to 10 minute walk from Christchurch High Street, a 5 minute walk from the station plus a bus stop to other towns such as Poole and Bournemouth is just across the road. So in a very convenient spot. Plenty of information re: resstaurants; sightseeing etyc provided as well as local knowledge from the owners.
It is on a noisy main road but we had a room overlooking the back and to be honest the place is double glazed so road noise not really a problem - I certainly did not notice it. The property also has a lovely large enclosed garden at the back and the breakfast room over looks this. I would recommend this guesthouse and would definately go back to stay.

Room Tip: Book a room at the back overlooking the garden.

Waters Reach exceeded all of our expectations. We stayed overnight on Saturday 28th June and really cannot fault this place. If you are planning to be in the Christchurch area, I recommend that you try Waters Reach.

ALL GUEST HOUSES SHOULD BE LIKE THIS. Stayed here for 4 nights before our sons wedding, it was the perfect start. The whole guest house was spotlessly clean. As for breakfast well you could have what ever you want, fresh fruits, cereals, yogurts as well as full English. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Heather and Chris are lovely, very accommodating and easy going. Location of house is no more than 10 minutes walk from all amenities and sights. Breakfast is fantastic with lots of choice. Beds are very comfortable and the shower was fantastic. We stayed for a wedding at the kings arms and was easily walkable to high street (max 10 mins). Highly recommended!!

Heather and Chris were very helpful, breakfast was very good! Our room was spotless and very comfortable. Beautiful bathroom and this room had a jacuzzi bath. B and B is well located close to town and other attractions - we would recommend it highly. Sandra and Basil Bloch.
