The food here is at best average. I find it difficult to believe that some of the reviewers of this hotel eat at the same place. The lamb was OK but the price was outrageous. The fish was tired and overcooked; a particularly bad fault for a coastal hotel. I have given a below average overall rating simply because the... More

We stayed here for 2 nights recently and it really couldn't have been better! I can't believe what some people have said about this beautiful hotel in such picturesque surroundings but I suppose some folk are hard to please! We were given a choice of room, the staff were lovely and the food was delicious and freshly cooked. We are... More

We enjoyed a wonderful 2 night stay at the Cliffmount hotel, the staff were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The food served was delicious and the dining room has gorgeous views over the bay. Our rooms were warm and comfortable, with clean towels everyday together with lots of biscuits with the tea making facilities. The lawn overlooked... More

Fabulous place, delicious food, peaceful surroundings & tranquil view of Runswick bay.. Place to drink, eat, relax & sleep! Staff are lovely & helpful and it's only a few minutes drive to centre of Whitby. This place is a hidden gem and I highly recommend

We chose this hotel for its location overlooking Runswick Bay and were not disappointed. The hotel must have grown "like Topsey" and there are stairs all over so be aware. Our room was fine, decor will not be to every ones taste especially those who are not fond of artificial flowers - why bother? The room was equipped with two... More

Lovely hotel, beautifully situated overlooking Runswick Bay. Polite, helpful staff, very good restaurant. Very clean and well appointed. Would definitely return to this hotel. Nothing was too much trouble - they did everything they could to make our stay memorable.

Visiting Runswick with friends and decided to have lunch here. Good choice; we had sandwiches, which were nicely presented, plus drinks. Plenty of seating outside in the gardens where there is the most beautiful view over the bay. Definitely worth a visit to take in the view.

Read quite a few negative feedback on this hotel and wonder if we stayed in the same one! However, we were looked after by a charming young man in glasses who Im not sure of his name but he made our stay all the more enjoyable by being attentive, polite and nothing was too much trouble so a very big...

When we were arrived were met by a rude women who told us not to go into the dining room but to sit over there and wait until she could get to us. We ordered a "fresh crab sandwich" which cost £7.95. We were expecting layers of fresh crab meat, but got a thin spread of a crab paste.

if the truth was to be told this would be a different review i remember distinctly you sitting in the garden to eat then coming in and sitting at a table in the restaurant without informing anyone of your decision no-one told you to sit in the bar you actually ate in the restaurant?? . We sell literally hundreds of... More

Although we enjoyed our stay to a degree we just felt that our experience was marred by being made to feel that we where almost in the way. Any requests where met with a negative as opposed to "yes, no problem", for example when we informed the owner we would be outside whilst we waited for our table we were... More
