I stayed here at Easter with my sisters. It's a great location, looking out across the beach and that's its major plus point. I had a single room which was very cramped. My sister's had a double which although double the price was 4 or 5 times better than mine. How they justify £6 for a double espresso in the...

Another good stay for a birthday treat. Had a balcony room and the weather was good. This hotel's position is unrivalled for the views and the sound of the sea crashing on the rocks.

Had a very relaxed weekend in a wonderful location. The Watersmeet hotel is stylish, comfortable and has everything you need to unwind. Staff are without exception friendly, helpful and professional.

Trip Advisor comments about the Watersmeet are generally positive (that’s why we booked) but unfortunately we seemed to have struck unlucky as our recent overnight stay on a “luxury for less suite” offer was really disappointing. On the positive side Reception was very welcoming and efficient and the decor in the hotel in general is nice. The leisure facilities are...

Really nice place - nicely re-done inside apart from the bathroom which was a touch dated (although totally clean and pleasant, just didn't match v high standards of the rest of the room). Food was fantastic in the evening - really top notch stuff, including the veggie fare. Downsides would be pricey drinks and breakfast not living up to expectations...

Very pleasant hotel offering wonderful views of the sea and rugged coastline. The friendly staff made our stay both happy and enjoyable. I would recommend this hotel for a great chill out, surfers will get some great surfing, and if you like walking this is the place for you.

A comfortable hotel with stunning views over Woolacombe bay. Staff were welcoming and helpful, the food was pretty good and the rooms were clean and comfortable. There was a small spa for residents to use. There's plenty to see and do in the local area. We would definitely like to go back some time.

You have a lovely view and everything is perfect. I went with my family and we had a great time, the breakfast was delicious and there were lots of choices! You could be in quick reach of the beach by running down a grass hill.
