We came here after walking out of another hotel and the guy in charge was extremely accommodating and helpful. (john) especially as it was nearly midnight. The rooms are tired but clean and for the price I would say perfectly acceptable and what you would expect for the area and price.

We had a family occasion to attend nearby. The hotel was friendly the breakfast was very nice and staff helpful. But..... The hotel is in desperate need of updating and general maintenance. Our room was large and had a fantastic view over the bay. The beds were very comfortable but the shower was very poor and in need of some... More

We stopped overnight prior to catching a crise ship. Room was ideal for this purpose and reasonably priced. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms are a little 'tired' but clean and comfortable. The hotel agreed to let us leave the car for the duration of the cruise which again helped. If we visit Harwich again we'll stay here...

I stayed at the Cliff a few times due to work schedule and have found the staff very pleasant and the food quite good but unfortunately the rooms need redecorating especially the bathrooms which do have some outdated coloured suites. The televisions also need modernising plus the wifi is very sporadic anywhere in the hotel

The Cliff is a lovely hotel with traditional charm and friendly staff. It commands the Dovercourt seafront and offers rooms with stunning sea views. I really do recommend this hotel if you want a nice comfortable stay at affordable prices.

Compare their website pictures to the ones I took absolute fraudsters and con artists they must have a "special" room for taking photos in I mean bare wires hanging out of the wall charging £57 a night stay in a premier inn this should be £25-£30

We held our wedding ceremony at The Cliff and had a buffet tea and an evening buffet. The venue was perfect for our intimate numbers although many more could have been catered for. Our guests were well looked after. We had the most perfect day and memories to cherish forever. Thankso to all Jo's hard work and planning

cannot thank Sally Joe John and all the staff for their excellent service. Nothing too much trouble for them. The function room looked amazing and food excellent. We had high tea in the afternoon and then the evening reception. Cakes sandwiches scones etc were fresh and so tasty. Presentation second to none. The evening food was to die for. Our... More

Excellent staff very pleasant and helpful. Had a lovely time at a special birthday party. The food was very good, vegetables were cooked well, and there was enough to eat. The view was nice too. Some of our party were staying overnight.

Very welcoming hotel. Excellent staff - courteous and helpful. And the meals were excellent too. Room would have had a lovely view over the estuary, had the mist cleared a bit. May well go back there again
