I think anybody who has experienced really pristine 5 star service in the past will really notice the cracks in the Cliff house 5 star status... The Good - Fabulous location, short stroll to beach, dangling over a cliff edge, hotel blends in effortlessly with natural surroundings & is not garish or obtrusive, white horse restaurant gets great reviews (closed...

I stayed here with my boyfriend for a weekend- absolutely loved the hotel. I felt so close the sea, and really enjoyed the views from the hotel. The staff were so friendly and helpful, and the pool facilities were perfect. Best part for me was the walk down from the spa to the sea, where we were able to take... More

Cliff house is very nice and has stunning views of the bay. The staff are all very friendly and nice. The pluses are obviously the views and the infinity pool and hot tub. Both have stunning views and are extremely peaceful. The pool has little beds in the wall. I lay in there with the pool lapping, meditation music playing... More

This was our 3rd visit to Cliff House, and this time to get married. Our previous experiences were amazing but this time it was way beyond our expectations. The staff, friendly and helpful as always, efficient always there to help but never officious or stuffy. Friendly and yet professional. We were given the Aran Suite which was totally breath taking,... More

Spent 1 night with BB&D in Michelin star restaurant.... everything was amazing. Rooms, service, quality of food, attention to detail was outstanding. The spa and treatments added the relax value to the trip. The ambience in the hotel is so calm you will feel refreshed upon leaving. Thank you to all the staff at the hotel - fabulous job done...

We quite enjoyed our weekend here, but there were several things we found quite disappointing. Firstly the room: It was ok, if a little cramped. Bed and pillows comfy, great view, nice to have a selection of books and magazines provided. However, it was stiflingly hot unless we kept the noisy aircon on full blast, so we didn't sleep at...

In total, our bill for the night stay came to c. €500. We selected the Cliff House Hotel for our anniversary based on its perceived reputation and we had a high expectation for the... More

It was one of those weekends where Hubby and I just needed to run away, lounge around and order room service the whole time. We splurged and got the Cliff Veranda Suite. Though a little pricey, it was WORTH EVERY PENNY. The bed was one of the nicest we've seen in a hotel, clean, heated bathroom floors, an amazing double... More
