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

Really was not looking forward to my stay in the Cliff. I had read some of the reviews (when the sun wasn't shining) and knew it was run down. It is. Don't come here for a romantic weekend or you will be very disappointed but if you take advantage of the last minute deals you can pick up a very... More

Anyway wasn't here for a holiday but I chose a 'sea view room' with Juliet balcony (no extra expense), having read one or two previous reviews I wasn't overly expectant, I'm old enough to make my own mind up though :D rang the bell at reception but then had to go looking for someone so I could book in, nice...

Great views and just over the road from the sea so you can hear the waves at night, which is always soothing. A lovely walk into Harwich old town - around some very attractive little beaches, each created by wooden groynes. Watching the ferries and container ships set off from port and then the flotillas of yachts and dinghies was... More

The Cliff Hotel is old and needs renovation. Staff is very friendly and the rooms are great facing the sea. Once it is restored it will cost you twice as much to stay here. Lovely views, high ceiling, it must have been beautiful years ago! There is no internet in the room.
