Just home from our second stay at the Cliff House hotel.Where do I start?From doorman to waiting staff to reception,all of the staff seemed 100% committed to ensuring we enjoyed our stay.( The sight of me wheeling my own suitcase-by choice- had staff members rushing to try to take it off me!) Our room had the same spectacular view over... More

We have just returned from our fifth visit to the Cliff House Hotel, this time taking two friends who were over from England - we stayed three nights. We were allocated balcony rooms 10 & 11 on level 1 - I think they and 12 next door, must be the best rooms in the hotel - quiet & peaceful and... More

Totally regret not posting this before now but myself and my partner stayed in The Cliff house in October and it was such an amazing experience.

FOur of us stayed in the CliffHouse in Ardmore recently and the hospitality, warmth and comfort was exceptional and it was a true break. The staff were most attentive to our needs, the room was superbly equipped with the wild grey ocean providing a huge contrast to the fireplace and comfort in our suite. Thorough professionalism was felt throughout and... More

With its reputation we expected this hotel to deliver, and it didn't let us down. The hotel is very stylishly and cleverly built on the side of a cliff, and very aptly named. The view from our room was to die for (as was the view from the bar, restaurant, and spa). Our room was fabulous (and we had a... More

Myself and my partner stayed here for two nights before Christmas. From the moment we arrived a friendly porter whose name has escaped me gave us a tremendously warm welcome right through to the reception and restaurant staff. We had lunch after we arrived and the only negative was there were quite a number of flies around the large windows... More
