A perfect weekend at gorgeous Cliff Top. We came en masse from America and filled nearly every room in the place. We're not an easy group and all of us agreed on only one thing during this vacation down-under; that Clifftop was wonderful! Helen is the perfect host and the grounds, the cliffs, the kangaroos bounding through the brush, wow.... More

Our room opened up to a balcony with a direct view of the ocean where we our breakfast. It was simply breathtaking. We also had lounge chairs on the balcony which were... More

After a last minute booking with Clifftop and a conversation with Helen, I arrived at Clifftop. The cold and drizzling was forgotten the minute I met Helen who was warm and welcoming. The experience was out of this world and just what I had needed. The warm hospitality from Helen was amazing. It is noteworthy that I had spent the... More

My wife and I spent one night at Cliff Top. The weather was stormy....spectacularly so....and this added to the spectacular views. Our room was delightful and very impressive....especially the generous size and practical layout. Our thanks to Helen for upgrading us....the ocean view rooms are well worth the extra cost. Our welcome was friendly and efficient, the complimentary coffee welcome... More

Lovely rooms, stunning views-I wish the weather had been better so we could've enjoyed the 'magic spot' our hostess walked us to along the cliffs. Free espresso for my birthday. We stayed in the cheapest room and it was still clean, super comfy bed and an amazing shower. Still a bit pricey in my opinion, but nice for a splurgey... More

After an appalling drive to Cliff Top we received a very warm welcome from Rachel who had kindly collected some pizzas for us. The hotel is in a beautiful position bang next to Smith's beach. The room is attractive and comfortable and we slept like babies! Breakfast was a feast and kept us going all day - Rachel is in... More
