Good points. I love the bed. Bedroom was not to noisy. Bad points. Bathroom was tiny (room 61) Some one came into my room and took a milk while I was out for dinner on the first night. Nothing else taken. TV needs updating. Room was hot or could do with supplying a top sheet as well.

Stayed here for 3 nights while visiting relatives. A lovely hotel, very clean, in a beautiful position on a headland with sea views. Free WiFi throughout the hotel, and very kind professional staff. Breakfast is excellent with a good selection of hot and cold food.

Room sub standard, only a domer window which meant no view. Shower didn't work properly and staff did nothing to remedy. Room was very tired and felt grubby. Breakfast was poor, fried eggs were had been left too long and were hard, tried poached eggs on the following morning because they were cooked fresh but these were no better. Outside... More

We really enjoyed our stay of four days at Cliff Head Hotel. We were very comfortable and pleased with our rooms. Staff were very accomodating and helpful. We were staying with two couples from New Zealand and they were equally impressed. We had had to make last minute changes to bookings and these were very well handled. The rooms were... More

The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was a good size, clean and nicely decorated. A good choice for visiting the area. Lovely place to stay. There a number of good pubs within a short driving distance too.

Joy and the Cliff Head provided us with the most fantastic, beautiful and stress free wedding day. Plenty of our guests stayed and had an excellent experience. We had the bridal suite which was lovely and spacious and a nice retreat for the end of the day. Joy helped everything to run smoothly and checked to make sure everything was... More

A nice hotel but could do with a bit of refurbishment. Nice friendly staff. A few things about the room I complained about but the faults where not satisfactorily rectified, the room we had had a wet room that after a few minutes use did not drain away efficiently and threatened to flood into the room. The restaurant food was... More

Great location. Shabby decor. Rooms small. Lovely people. Staff very friendly and helpful. I felt bad complaining about the TV that didn't work. But it didn't. They tried to fix it, and it worked for a while, but not for long. I actually didn't mention the shower that didn't work. Seemed pointless to mention it. Ok for a short stay,... More
