Food is fine

We had intended to try other restaurants, but why leave the hotel when the food is fine, especially the meals of the day.

Nicely presented food lots of different vegetables. Bread on side wasn't necessary as it was... More

A very tasty and reasonably priced dinner from a menu with a great deal of choice at a reasonable price. Friendly and attentive staff and a lovely sea view from the restaurant.

I was made to feel very welcome when I dined at the Cliff the staff knew by my accent I wasn't a local so went the extra mile with great service and stopped to chat while serving me.

Having had a meal in the hotel 18 months ago I thought that the food may have improved! Well it hasn't! So disappointing to see that it was just the same. Gammon steak terrible shoe leather, Lasagna deflated pasta, Cesar salad with fried bread and no dressing! The only good thing that night was the staff who served us with... More

Although the Cliff Hotel is more traditional in its setting, the attitude of its staff makes it a great local venue. We love the bar area and they cater well for people wanting a relaxing lunch or dinner with what will always be amazing views of Dovercourt Bay. It's historical associations with the show Hi de Hi are also of... More

Lovely very old building with commanding views of the bay. However, food is only average. I cannot comment on the rooms. It is one of the oldest buildings in the town and drastically in need of some TLC. Large function room used for weddings and dances. Downstairs bar with Sports TV and quite popular with locals.

I have mixed opinions on the food in the restaurant at the cliff 1st time it was excellent, 2nd time terrible and 3rd just OK. Don't have the breakfast unless you have plenty of time to spare! There are much better breakfasts to be had locally and a lot cheaper too!
