Wasn't really expecting much as I'd booked 2 rooms with seaviews through Red Funnel, and they'd called me a couple of weeks earlier to tell me the sea view wasn't available. We had a standard room instead, a bit dated but plenty of room and a fab shower. My mum in law had the room next door (really nice of... More

I've been to the Cliff Hall hotel a couple times in my life, it was amazing, i loved every second. I love the Isle of Wight, and this hotel was equally brilliant. The staff were fantastic and so was the food. Unfortunately I have not visited this place recently (so the month visited is not correct) and can only base... More

Really made our short holiday - super hotel and super people running it. Everyone is made to feel special and nothing is too much trouble. The hotel is spotless - the breakfast is a feast in itself and the room was faultless..The cliff lift to the beach is a very short walk or you can take the path down.. A... More

We stayed for a short break at the Cliff Hall Hotel in July 2014. The hotel was bigger than expected with a number of rooms that have been modernised and some of which are still on the list of ones to do, but they are very up-front about this when you are booking. The owners and staff are friendly and... More

My partner and I stayed here in July 2014. We both have very busy lives and live apart so we really wanted to get away to spend a few days together away from everyday stresses and trivia. I have fond Isle of Wight childhood memories so I was keen to show my partner around, and Shanklin provided the perfect quiet... More

The hotel itself is at the top of the cliff at Shanklin, on the south-east of the Isle of Wight. The views across the channel are super, and access to the beach is good, given it is at the top of the cliff. The town centre is just a short walk away. Rooms are clean and well equipped. Breakfast is... More

Thank you for your candid feed back and for taking the time to review us.. We would like to point out that the swimming pool area ( which includes the games room) is under renovation. Part of this renovation is the loss of the swimming pool but a far improved outside area and games room will follow. More
