I have stayed at WB a couple of times and visited for food countless other times! This really is a special place with stunning, relaxed design, great rooms and very good food! There really is no need to leave the bay, even if you're staying for a week you wouldn't get fed up with the variety of restaurants/ bars here....

I have been here more a than once a year on some years and have never stopped coming and completely enjoying it. Everything is great there is not one bad thing. There are many many 5 star hotels that aren't as good as this.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to this hotel. The room was very well-appointed with an amazing view. The food was very good, especially breakfast. The hotel is very child-friendly. I've seen some of the other posts which bemoan this. I say deal with it! Bottom line, if you're looking for a romantic getaway in an adults only environment, choose another...

The hotel is right on the beach and is fantastic place to stay what ever the weather! I have stayed there in glorious sunshine and enjoyed an array of wonderful gin and tonics and the very private hot tub that looks over the bay. On the other hand when it is stormy and rainy, the hotel is a great base...

We chose to stay here on our wedding night and it was absolutely the perfect decision. We live in Cornwall ourselves and knew of Watergate Bay Hotel and had also heard from friends who had stayed there. It is faultless.
