Cliff House Hotel has just opened so I expected the interior to be stunning but was overwhelmed. Every tiny detail has been thought about very carefully (like the nespresso machines in the rooms!) and this was welcomingly combined with excellent service from Tim and the manager and the food was also brilliant. This boutique hotel has left a lasting impression.

It took 15 minutes to be given the cooked menu a further 20 minutes to take the order and a whopping 45 minutes to receive the breakfast. That said, you wouldn't go hungry as there is plenty of continental options available and the Full Dorset... More
