I had a party of 12 that was looking for a good hotel with price and location to match near to Great Yarmouth and found the Cliff Hotel in Gorleston - on - Sea to be that one.Upon arrival I was met with a very pleasant receptionist who really went out of her way to help sort the six rooms... More

This place is excellent more so on a nice day when the roof is open you can sit n chat whilst enjoying the entertainment. There is a small play area for children to enjoy too and the food is excellent so if your ever in Great Yarmouth give it a try

Great hotel, lovely location next to the sandy beach. Rooms are a little quirky, it's hit or miss as to a beautiful big room or a small one. Some of the showers need maintenance too. Apart from that the restaurant is a brilliant setting and the menu is decent.

My husband and I were given a surprise holiday treat from our daughter for helping her throughout a very traumatic year. We arrived on Tuesday and were greeted by a lovely friendly receptionist. Our room was lovely overlooking the Terrace and having a lovely sea view, my daughter had arranged a surprise bouquet which was ready and waiting in our... More

We spent a long weekend at the Cliff and initially we were overcome by the noise in our room.....but the efforts and attention of the staff more than compensated! The rooms we stayed in were well appointed, clean and all mod cons - they did look like they had been recently done up. The hotel is a weekend draw for... More

The hotel is situated on the cliff overlooking the beautifull beach at Gorleston. The large terrace at the rear of the hotel overlooking... More

This is the first time we have ever written a review. We stayed overnight using a voucher which included afternoon tea, bed and breakfast. We could not fault anything. The Hotel position was perfect, the bed the most comfortable we have ever slept in, the food was first class along with the service - nothing was too much trouble. We... More

My partner chose this hotel based on his reading of the reviews on Trip Advisor. He thought that the location of the hotel etc would make this the perfect place for us to spend 3 nights. We arrived last Sunday afternoon and were very impressed with the location of the hotel, close to the beach, on a hill, overlooking the... More

Very posh place with terrace restaurant overlooking the sea. Very popular but probably more to do with the fact there seemed to only be about 3 places to eat in the town. I had a burger which was ok but not worth the £11, I've had better which have been cheaper. My partners steak was the same, ok but could... More

Lets get the location stuff out of the way... This hotel is a stones throw away from a beautiful, clean sandy beach that seems to stretch forever. As the name suggests, it's on a cliff, so you do need to go down stairs or a series of ramps to get to the sea front, but we saw people in wheelchairs... More
