I don't like to give negative reviews and you certainly can't fault the staff at this place but if the hotel inspector saw this place she would have quite a few suggestions. Our room was at the back of the hotel and obviously one they haven't redecorated for 20 years. It looked very tired and dated. woodchip on the walls... More

lovely hotel, proprietors very welcoming and friendly. Excellent breakfasts, good position overlooking sea. Although we wished we had booked a superior room as the standard was pretty basic. Shower was very difficult in stepping in or out as doorway was very narrow. But on the whole the staff were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. They ordered us... More

Just got back from a two night stay at the Cliff Hall Hotel in Shanklin. Booked very last minute as family suddenly informed me they were in the Isle of Wight for a week. Easy booking, the owners and staff were very friendly and always helpful. Stayed in a twin room with a friend who came with me. The room... More

I wanted a good, reasonably priced local hotel for a quick break from work and that is exactly what I got. The first thing that strikes you is the cleanliness, my room being spotless and listening to someone at the bus stop afterwards talking about another hotel, that obviously is not always the case. The bed was small but very... More

Situated above the promenade at Shanklin, the hotel has stunning views of both Sandown and Shanklin bays. The hotel has some 20 rooms a number of which have sea views. It is family owned and managed and they successfully combine both a professional approach and a friendly appearance. Nothing was too much trouble and they looked after us very well.... More

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
