Partner and I stayed here on the bank holiday weekend in May. Great hotel - although not the cheapest, there were plenty of little things that made up for it. The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them to help with. Tim the manager was on hand all the time to help with anything -... More

We greatly enjoyed our two nights here over the Easter weekend. The hotel is well run with nice touches that make it just that little bit special. The menu is interesting and the food is particularly good. A snack of vegetable samosas on Saturday lunchtime was thoroughly enjoyable and the panna cotta that evening was second to none. A touch...

Another fabulous and successful event at the CliffHouse Hotel, cocktails on arrival, with amazing canapés. Then a cocktail making lesson with the very entertaining Claudio, a big hit with the whole party. Then on into the dining area for a delicious three course dinner. Attentive staff ensuring our glasses were not empty, and all food was served hot and very... More

Very pleasant stay at this boutique hotel near Bournemouth which is also only a few minutes walk away from the sea. Our bedroom was excellent and spotlessly clean. My only small gripe was although the shower room was clean and of a good size I thought it could do with a bit of updating to bring it up to the... More

This stylish and comfortable hotel is close to Southbourne's sandy beach, and our children loved playing in the garden. The room was spacious and well equipped, the staff were incredibly helpful, and breakfast was amazing!

This hotel is a real little gem. We had 50 guests to our 25th wedding anniversary celebration enjoying canapes and cocktails in the contempory and comfortable bar area. The staff were exceptionally professional and the food had everybody talking ... and eating! We stayed the night and our room was comfortable and large, while breakfast and dinner were delicious (...

I couldn't fault this hotel. In fact I was disappointed I had such a short stay. Exceptional. Some pictures on here do not do it justice. Food beautiful, room clean and lots of little extras like coffee machine. Can't wait to stay again

I can highly recommend this hotel. It is not in the central part of Bournemouth, but close to the shops, and cliff-top area of Southbourne. Located in an area free from street noise. The room , like all other areas of the hotel, was well furnished and decorated. Very comfortable bed with good linens. Good in-room wi-fi coverage. Free parking... More

Very sorry that you had such a disappointing visit with us and that your room was not made up in time for your return. As a small boutique establishment we have requirement for one housekeeper but that should have been dealt with at the time. More

Booked this Hotel for my mum's surprise 80th birthday. Afternoon tea was arranged for 17 guests and we had the sun lounge which is modern, clean and comfortable. It of course lead out to the spacious garden. The day arrived, the sun shone and guests arrived. Vicki, their events manager, kept me updated on a regular basis with emails and... More
