Our first stey at Cliff Hall and what a fantastic one it was! we were made very welcome by the staff and the other guests, The views are to die for, and the whole charm and atmosphere was fantastic. The breakfasts were five star, as was the general feeling of nothing being to much trouble for management and staff. We... More

This is 3rd visit my cricket team has made to this hotel and going back there was like visiting old friends. The staff are so friendly and helpful, we changed our booking numbers several times and it caused no problem. The breakfast was excellent, and the room rate we obtained was amazing. I have seen comments regarding the rooms being... 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

My son suffers from coeliac disease and stayed at this hotel on his school trip. His first trip away from home and obviously he was concerned about his diet. The hotel was brilliant and dealt with all his needs. He said the food was gorgeous, he didn't have to worry at all and they even asked him what he would... More

We stayed as a group for a family weekend away over the Easter break. The staff were very friendly and there was a lovely family feel to the hotel. The facilities were good; the games room was closed and being April the pool wasn't yet open, but there was a great lounge area with a small bar, and a good... 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

Right from the start the lady on the other end of the telephone, (who turned out to be Pippa, one of the owners), couldn' t do enough for us. She even arranged the ferry crossing which we appreciated coming from so far away in Cumbria. I have to say it was also cheaper than if we had had to book... More

My husband and I stayed here over the August bank holiday. The hotel is situated on the cliff overlooking Shanklin bay, within easy access of the lift to take you down to the beach and is about ten minutes walk away from old town. The hotel itself is oldie worldie which suits Shanklin. The pool area is beautiful and kept... More

Thank you for your comments. There are still a couple of the standard seaview rooms that have not yet been refurbished as you pointed out. I think your appraisal of them is entirely fair. The cost for these rooms has been static for 2 years for this reason. The cost of the rooms does also take into consideration the location... More
