Took my friend for afternoon tea and was well looked after. The was a good selection of tasty finger sandwiches, savouries, cakes scones, jams and clotted cream. There was a selection of teas and could have a fresh pot of tea as required. There was too much for us to eat so the waiter very kindly wrapped up what was... More

Stayed last night and it really did not meet my expectations. Unfortunately my birthday being in December there are a lot of christmas parties being enjoyed, and the Cliff was no exception. I felt that I was in Norwich clubbing, as the hallway seemed to be fall of bouncers. The bar was busy/noisy and absolutely freezing. We asked if there... More

We stayed at the hotel last night and were immediately impressed. Excellent service, food and decor. The only problems we had was that our room was extremely warm. We had both windows open on a very cold December night and no radiators on and we still struggled to sleep. On investigation we realised the heat was actually coming from the... More

Hotel is of a decent size, as are the rooms. Although initially looking polished and well appointed, this is a mask for several issues. Bear in mind, these applied to my room and may not apply to all. The shower head was loose and almost impossible to use as when you turned water on it flipped up to point into... More

Have stayed here four or five times since they have been refurbishing over the last two or three years. Nice rooms. Decent menu. Order a sandwich and you get a proper sandwich! Decent light and airey bar area, outside decking overlooking the river and sea front good too. Staff smart attire with good attitude. In my opinion the bosses investment... More

I've stayed here a few times on business over the years and it's certainly got good quality rooms. A recent refurbishment made a big difference. The restaurant is pretty good with some good local ingredients used. The bar is pretty lively which I like and the staff are all very friendly.

Each couple had booked a double room at the reduced rate, which was as good as last time, the breakfast was... More

My partner took me today having won a carvery for 2 raffle prize. Although free we know the normal Sunday price is under 8 pounds a head. If today is indicative of the normal choice and quality then its well worth the money. The choice of real ales in the bar was great and not too expensive having regard to... More

The deck extention to the Cliff is a perfect complement to the Cliff hotel.On a summer's day you can while away the afternoon enjoying not only fine food and a drink,but excellent views over Gorleston and Great Yarmouth's coastline. Well worth a trip to enjoy this high quality extention to the hotel.
