Owned by one family for two generations, Watergate Bay Hotel is as popular for the warmth of its hospitality as it is for its gorgeous location. The hotel today is a collection of fresh, contemporary spaces designed to connect you with the rugged coastline outside. Our sports school, Extreme Academy, helps you make the most of the surfing break on our doorstep. Inside is Swim Club, a secluded area including a 25-metre indoor pool, café-bar and treatment rooms. The hotel as we know it bears little resemblance to the original, built in 1904. Intended to serve as a railway terminus, the hotel later became an RAF Officers’ Mess before falling into disrepair. In the Seventies, it was given some love, with the Victorian building converted back into a 55-bedroom hotel. Families flocked to it for a traditional beach holiday. Some 40 years later and Watergate Bay remains a favourite with families, while appealing equally to couples and groups of friends. In 2001 the hotel embarked on a new era, opening year-round to reimagine its potential. Every phase of our evolution since has been informed by one vision: a ski resort on a beach. With the opening next door of Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen Cornwall; the development of The Living Space and Swim Club; and, later, the opening of our restaurant, Zacry’s, Watergate Bay Hotel has complemented its great outdoor offering with fine après surf. The result is a hotel whose unique location is matched by its service, its food and its atmosphere – or so we hope. We are constantly evolving and striving to improve the experience you’ll find here.
