My wife and I arrived on a Sunday afternoon for our third stay when guests were arriving and leaving and visitors were turning up for afternoon tea all at once! It was an exceptionally busy time for all the Cliff House team on the last day of January. But throughout our five night stay we once again encountered some genuinely... More

We took the opportunity presented by our daughter being away on a school exchange of a few days break ourselves. Targeting dramatic coastline views rather than winter sunshine we found the Cliff House Hotel on the Internet - attracted by both the promise of coastal views and fine dining. We were not disappointed! The staff were exemplary throughout, polite and... More

The location on a cliff on the sea, the gorgeous indoor infinity pool overlooking the cliff, but the bar and food. just gorgeous. and then the rooms are so tasteful, all... More

What a special treat! From the moment we stepped inside the door until we reluctantly left two days later, the cares of the world disappeared. Fabulous food, beautiful well appointed bedrooms and staff who treated us like old friends visiting. To be highly recommended for anyone looking for an escape or some "down time". Hope our next visit isn't too... More

Stayed for 2 nights with dinner on both nights. Hotel is lovely and most staff very friendly and helpful. Hotel is in an amazing location and the views are stunning but that is the best thing about this hotel for the prices they charge. We were mostly disappointed that there was no comfortable lounge type area to just sit with... More

Dear japen12 Thank you for your review. Our library area, on the mezzanine, is designed exactly for this purpose. I witness many of our guests just sitting there and reading (sometimes adding in the odd snooze!) whilst glancing across over at the bay every now and then and they all feel free to call us for service any time. Come... More

This is a very special place. I'd call this kind of place a hideaway more than a hotel. Beautiful in every way. Make sure to walk the 5k cliff walk. Looking forward to returning here whenever a hideaway from everyday life is needed.

Recently stayed here for one night on a dinner bed & breakfast package. I was very impressed by the front office staff who were very informative about all amenities in the hotel. We ate in the bar twice that day for lunch and dinner and both were equally delicious and service especially at dinner was brilliant. The breakfast on the... More
