“Return visit”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

My partner and I had such a great stay previously I decided to come back for a girlie weekend on 2nd August 2014! This stay was even more perfect than the first visit as I knew what to expect and my expactations were high - they were lived up to! The rooms were amazingly clean, the breakfasts were plentiful, fresh and well cooked - we had a mix of full English and soft poached eggs on toast - and the hosts Heather and Chris catered to a specific dietary need without any notice. Outside of the guest house we had a fabulous time at a free swing jazz festival in the park drinking lots of Prosecco an M&S picnic. Great memories and fabulous photos! My two friends have cowed to return with their families! You would be a fool not to stay here if you visit Christchurch!

Room Tip: The Hengistbury room is fab for couples - has a great jacuzzi in the room. My friends and I stayed...

Just can't get any better! We arrived for our two day stay a little early, but were allowed to check into our room so we could change as we were travelling on a motor bike, even though the room was not made up. Excellent hosts very accommodating and helpful. Breakfast each morning was freshly cooked and plentiful, tea,coffee and toast topped up if needed. On arrival there is a home made lemon drizzle cake in the room, which was delicious! We had the room at the front of the house, big double shower and beautiful bedroom. While we were there the weather was very hot and there was a fan in the room which was very appreciative.

Room Tip: The room at the front of the house has a beautiful double shower and a lovely bedroom.

An excellent stay in this fantastic guesthouse. The hosts could not have been more welcoming and accommodating. Our twin room was both comfortable and well appointed. The breakfasts were superbly cooked with high quality ingredients. Highly recommended!

We have just returned from a weekend stay at watersreach and stayed in their luxury suite with jacuzzi bath! Oh joy, both the bedroom and bathroom are spacious and beautifully decorated. Everything was spotless and towels and robes were provided. Lemon drizzle cake in room on arrival together with biscuits and plentiful refreshments supplied every day. The breakfast was fab and we recommend the omlettes, all in all one of the best around !

We stayed at Waters Reach Guesthouse in July whilst attending our friends’ wedding in Christchurch.

We accidently checked into the wrong B&B as we were running late for the reception. However the hosts sorted it out amongst them, collected our car key from us and moved our vehicle and belongings to Waters Reach. A true example of going the extra mile.

The hosts were really friendly, attentive and served the best breakfast we had in ages.

Comparing accommodation stories the next day amongst our friends, we were delighted that we had decided to stay at Waters Reach. Most of our friends stayed at the nearby and pricey Kings Arms Hotel and complained of poor ventilation, damp carpets and noise. The bedroom we stayed in at Waters Reach was top notch, we could sleep forever on the comfy mattress and the room was tidied each day. The hosts also welcomed us to homemade lemon drizzle cake which was a great mid night snack.

It is the final details and great service that pushes the rating of this B&B from very good to exceptional. We highly recommend staying at Waters Reach when you visit Dorset.

Room Tip: We stayed in the twin bed room and it was great.

We have an enjoyable 2 night stay at this B and B. The hosts were very kind, friendly, welcoming and accommodating offering a comfortable stay and a good breakfast with a good choice. I would recommend the bedrooms at the back which overlook the garden as the b and b is situated on quite a busy road. Lovely decor which was well thought out.

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.
