Honestly don’t know where to start in explaining how amazing the staff at Watergate Bay have been over the last couple of days for our wedding! We booked our wedding a year ago as we fell in love with the hotel. Since booking and planning the wedding the events team have been fantastic, really understanding and always there to help. We arrived at the hotel on Wednesday 19th with our family and the staff were really welcoming and couldn’t do more for us and our family. The events team made me feel at ease at all times through out our stay and were absolutely amazing on our big day! All the staff put in so much effort to make our day as special as possible. Our wedding co-ordinator Louise was amazing and we couldn’t thank her enough! Louise made our day flow so well and really went above and beyond to make our day so perfect! Also the restaurant team were amazing, down to putting in extras to make our cakes look great, to the outstanding meal we had. Our room was fantastic and although it was raining the views were amazing! I just want to thank everyone for doing an absolutely amazing job and We already can’t wait to come back and stay again! Thank you, Jess & Vinny

Wonderful Wedding Venue. Just returned from watching my daughter get married. Such a wonderful venue with great views over the sea behind the ceremony. Room was excellent and the wedding team made a good job of decorating it with our bunting and pompoms. Food was out of the world for the canapes, wedding breakfast (really good home cured gradvalax as starter) and cute pasties at the evening do. The pool and downstairs lounge were both very relaxing and there is a super compact cardio room. Our ocean view bedroom was freshly renovated and gave just about enough room for us to spread out. The more expensive rooms are more expansive even featuring a bath in the bay window. The cliff top location meant it was rather bracing in late September so it was not the weather too sunbathe on the terraces. Breakfast was self-service so no problems with portion control. All in all had a wonderful (there said it again) 4 nights with a great crowd of people. Great venue for a wedding.
We were married at the Watergate Bay Hotel and we couldn’t have been more delighted with the venue and staff. A huge thanks to Vikki, Louisa and Melissa for making our day so special and for going out of their way when something unexpected happened (no fault of the hotel). All other staff we met were lovely too and couldn’t have been more friendly or helpful. It’s such a beautiful setting and hotel, our guests all commented on what a fantastic place it is. Thoroughly recommend visiting.
