Great value for money, excellent position on the leas over looking the channel, extremely helpful and cheery staff. The hotel offers great views of the channel, it's situated just a 2 min walk from the town centre and its a pleasant 10 min walk to the fishing harbour. The Leas cliff hall is a 30 second walk away. We had... More

I looked at reviews prior to staying here and all I can say is that if anyone has a gripe about the service, accommodation or food at the Southcliff - then they should be sent to the Grand Burstin - we've now stayed at both and there is no comparison (apart from price) to the Southcliff. ALL staff were helpful... More

We stopped here overnight and have to say we got excellent value for the price we paid. The check-in was easy, the guy was very friendly (as were all the staff). The rooms were clean and the water hot - just what you want for an overnight stay. Breakfast was good value with as much tea/coffee and toast as you... More

We recently stayed at The Southcliff on a stopover from the continent. We found the hotel easily using out Sat Nav. It is situated right on the coast overlooking the Channel. The hotel does not have any parking but they provide tokens for £2.00 a day. We were only staying overnight and paid for a spot almost outside the restaurant... More

Stayed here a couple of weeks ago with my boyfriend on a Saturday night. Overall first impressions were good, man and woman on reception were friendly enough. if you need to park outside then it's £2 for a permit. We were upgraded to a sea view room for free, which I thought was a nice touch. Room was large, bed... More

This hotel is brilliant as long as you know what to expect. It is not a Travelodge / Holiday Inn style hotel where everything is modern, standardised and bland. It is an old Victorian hotel which is a bit ramshackle but is quirky and staffed by very friendly helpful people. On some details it is possible to criticise – eg... More

Total refurb needed as some rooms are acceptable and others definitely are not. I stayed in one which was not: the 'bathroom' was a wardrobe matched at the other side of the room by the wardrobe! There was no room to even pull trousers up after using the WC without stepping into the bedroom. The total floor space in this... More
