One the best stays I have had at the 4 star Guest House on the South Cliff. Made most welcome by Joanna as soon as we stepped through the door, with the attractively decorated surroundings giving a sense a of opulence. Stayed in most spacious room on first floor overlooking the street with immaculate cleanliness, a comfortable sofa, large wardrobe... More

Nice touch was fridge on each landing for fresh milk for my cuppa. I hate UHT sachets!! Breakfast in the morning had a good selection... More

From start to finish excellent. Nothing too much trouble. Clean, elegant, lots of extra touches, such as fresh milk in a fridge for each room on every landing. Very good high quality food. Evening meal available e.g fresh cod in cream sauce with prawns...we will be back

Me and two friends have just got back from a 2 night break at this hotel and we were very happy with our stay. The service as soon as we arrived was friendly and informative; Rob gave us a tour and showed us to our room and made sure we were ok before leaving. We stayed in a triple en... More

I found the Cavendish welcoming and comfortable. The proprietor was very polite, warm and welcoming, as well as very professional in providing me with everything I might need. The hotel itself is small and a bit dated, but well presented and clean (though there is a lingering smell from the kitchen that is rather unpleasant). I booked a single room... More

The hotel is clean and rooms were spacious if a little dark, but it was a pleasant place, it is on a reasonably quiet road some distance from the centre. We had a decent nights sleep and... More
