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

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.

Im sat here trying to justify the one star rating ive given it and the only thing I can come up with is the man doing the hoovering this morning said hello. The hotel boasts that the Hi De Hi cast stayed there in the 80s and I dont think the room had been cleaned since then ! The carpet... More

I came here with some of my friends and partner for New Years, we all had an amazing time! Live band who were very good, played some classics. Beautifully decorated room, with a yummy Buffett. Very friendly staff! For everything that we got it was very reasonably priced. The room was very dated, but we were there for the evening... More

We stopped here before our Ferry crossing , we had a very dated bedroom , the TV must have been 30 years old no lie, the bed wasn't big enough for 2 and very uncomfortable, the room was very cold and stunk of damp urine that was leaking from the toilet , I wouldn't let a dog sleep there ,... More

This is the 3rd time we've stayed at this hotel and for the second time have been highly disappointed. On our first visit at the beginning of 2014. We got a really good deal, so was not expecting much.To our surprise we were given a sea-view room, a bit dated but for £26 a night, who could grumble. The staff... More
