Stayed here for two nights for our anniversary. Had heard amazing things about the place and so we were very excited about our stay. The staff here are amazing, from the handshake from the porter when we pulled up the car to the reception staff, bar & restaurant staff and the service staff, all were extremely friendly, helpful and polite....

I stayed in the Cliff House Hotel for just one night and it was stunning! The weather was fortunately great and the view from our balcony suite was absolutely beautiful. I thought the hotel itself was gorgeous and the rooms were very luxurious with huge bathrooms. The hotel has the right mix of being a proper 5* star hotel without... More

We treated ourselves to a balcony suite where we could enjoy sitting out with bay views and, if it turned wet, we had a very comfortable area to sit and relax without being cramped. The room was beautifully furnished and though there was a wonderful free standing bath, we really enjoyed the excellent shower in the luxurious bathroom. Free Wifi... More

Just back from my 3rd visit to this gorgeous hotel. Absolutely loved it! It was hard to tear ourselves away from the view in our Balcony Suite . But we manage to fit in the highly recommended cliff walk behind the hotel, a visit to the deserted pool and sublime food in the House Restaurant - one of the best... More

I visited Cliff House on a Monday night, and was really surprised to see it busy! But after experiencing the hotel I know why - it's fab! I stayed in room 22, beautiful uninterrupted view of the bay. Really comfy bed, and truly lovely room. Dinner in the bar was lovely, complimented by the unique view. Great experience, great hotel... More

Spent a very relaxing afternoon in The Cliff House Spa, lovely treatments and spectacular view from treatment room/relaxation room. Spa facilities are very good. The steam room was not in operation which was disappointing but there were signs up apologising for this. Lockers are also bit of nuiscance, lot of people confused by them. Had dinner in the bar restaurant,... More

Dear Jean B Thanks for visiting and for your review. You must have missed the sign at reception about the steam room - not to worry on your next visit it will be back working and completely renovated too! New locker doors are coming too so you should see a big change the next time. Kindest regards Adriaan Bartels General... More

Spent 2 nights in The Cliff House recently. It was a surprise gift from my husband. The room we were allocated was spacious and had a lovely balcony but it was a wheelchair accessible room where the wash hand basin was very low and the room was also opposite an office which the night staff used. Quite a noisy room.... More

My mother and I stayed for one night in 2 separate rooms. What a fabulous hotel. Everything exceeded expectations. I have stayed in several Relais & Chateau hotels around the UK and I can honestly say this is the best one all round. The service was lovely, not over-bearing, just right. Rooms were of a great standard and my massage(after... More
