food was excellent but a bit pricey

The food was excellent, nicely presented and tasty. The menu however is quite expensive - the price bracket that you would go for a special night out not just a casual meal with friends. It would be good to have a few dishes in the £7-10 bracket other than the cheaper snacks on offer and then would... read more

Excellent meal and not expensive. Clean serviettes - linen - for each course and pleasant view of bay and across to Folkestone. Well worth considering.

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

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.
