The Cliff House had been on my list as a place to visit for about a year. For one reason or another it didn't happen but I am glad we finally managed a stay. The Cliff House is a modern hotel in aesthetic but very much traditional in welcome and service. From the moment we walked in the door we... More

The cliff house from start to finish was fab. I was travelling with a small baby and they couldn't have been anymore accommodating. The rooms are lovely and the view over the ocean really makes them. The food is top class. It was our 9th Michelan star restaurant and it was by far the best for presentation of food. The... More

We travelled to the Cliff House for a night over Halloween. The welcome was warm, but it was evident right from the off that they were under pressure. Our room wasn't ready so we went to the bar for a drink and a bite to eat, only to be asked did we have a reservation! They squeezed us in but... More

Spent a night at the Cliff house and had the tasting menu with matching wine. Lovely dinner if a little bit pretentious, found they took themselves a little to seriously. The food was excellent and looked really great on the plate but found some dishes were trying too hard to be different. Staff were superb and facilities likewise. We thought... More

We had lunch in the bar and have to say the food was delicious. It was quiet and we were seated by the window for a fabulous view. Luckily the sun was shining. I had a beer and a sandwich which was excellent. My companion had a salad and sandwich which was equally delicious. Good value. Would like to return... More

I was there 28th & 29th with my best friend. The Hotel is in a beautiful location. Our room was very comfortable with a balcony and very large bathroom, which would be lovely for a couple. We ate in the bar on the Fri and the restaurant on the Sat night. On both nights we ordered the recommended wines to... More

Was here continuing a purple patch of hotel visits - last weekend was one of the 5* grand hotels of London. This is completely different. It's new, modern, and while completely different to last weekend, our stay was, as the title of this review suggests, wonderful. The rooms are all, in effect, suites, with double balconies giving fabulous views of... More
