Watergate Bay Hotel, Cornwall

Welcome to Watergate Bay, a relaxing beach retreat located right on the breathtaking north Cornish shore, the perfect place for a laid-back beach escape – the hotel even welcomes dogs if you feel like bringing your companion with you. Enjoy miles of sand, truly great restaurants, and an array of activities from surfing to cycling.


Just a five-minute drive from Newquay Airport and a short drive from Newquay’s town center, the hotel is situated on the edge of a two-mile stretch of sandy beach, Watergate Bay, making it a prime location to hit the waves, stroll along the coast or just watch the sunset over the ocean.


All 69 rooms at the Watergate Bay Hotel incorporate chic design features and a nautical vibe while providing true comfort. We love the rooms with private patios and panoramic sea views, the ultimate place to watch the sun go down, and to indulge in really cozy beachside living, we recommend opting for one of the suites.


Watergate Bay Hotel truly makes it easy for you to enjoy a casual, active lifestyle. Enjoy the 25-meter infinity pool, take some surfing lessons, or head off on one of the many stunning coastal walks. We also love the selection of dining experiences available to guests; dine in-hotel at Zacry’s, inspired by modern American cooking, or head over to Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen, where apprentice chefs work alongside professional chefs as part of the Cornwall Food Foundation. All in all, we love Watergate Bay’s unfussy, welcoming approach to beach relaxation and the area’s local cuisine. It’s the ideal place for a refreshing respite at the British seaside.
