Verified Reviews of The Waterman

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Excellent highly recommended"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
I would highly recommend this property. The room was SO cute with retro designs and quirky touches like mermaid wallpaper. Very tastefully done but in a happy way the room puts a smile on your face. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I loved the common kitchen area where you could not only serve yourself at breakfast but it has full cooking amenities if you wanted to make something later as well. The location is excellent you can walk everywhere and there are bikes out front for longer treks. Stay here, you will enjoy it.
