We had a reservation for my 40th birthday dinner. We were promptly seated right next to the picture windows so we could overlook the cliff and the water. The menu had a variety of different meals to choose from. I had the baked stuff haddock and my bf had the coffee rubbed chicken. Both were excellent and both came with... More

We enjoyed the ocean view from our porch, and loved the various pools available to us. The desk staff seemed to be doing us a favor by allowing us to check in and we had no help in finding our way to the room. The buildings are a bit of a maze, and navigating them can be confusing. The breakfast... More

It's in the most gorgeous location, and the views are stunning. With an investment into the rooms - some much needed updating this hotel could be GREAT. It feels dated. Even the bedding seems dated.... bathrooms/blah. It was clean, and the people seemed friendly BUT it wouldn't be on the top of my list to stay at. Just a good... More

The place is way overpriced. No real bar. No snacks. Service poor. No tennis courts. Broken down basket ball court. No putting golf area. Nothing to do for kids, don't bring them. Not as fun as the place has potential for. Spa is way to expensive. The views are nice

We made reservations for 12 to celebrate a 90th birthday. The menu we saw online was quite diverse and not too expensive. When we got to the restaurant and were seated, there was a one sheet 'special menu' that they give to banquets. Being a group of 12, they considered us a banquet. The 'special menu' had 4 entrees and... More

After 142 years this place was sold from the original family line. We were here last year for the 4th and loved it, so we stayed here again this year. Can't beat the Maine coastal view, one of the best. As said, under new ownership, a few things needed to make things better, but I'm sure the new co. will... More

We were told that we couldn't get reservations in the main dining room, so we went down to eat at Ocean Terrace (adjacent). The main dining room was only half full at best. Meanwhile the Ocean Terrace, both outside and at the bar, was very busy, and our waitress was less than attentive.

The Cliffhouse is clean, modern and has a friendly staff you simply cannot beat the views! There is an indoor and outdoor pool which is great since is no beach access (due to the cliffs)

We stayed in the adult spa hotel and I could not believe how wonderful the spa staff were. We sat in the hot tub outside overlooking the gorgeous ocean, then we ate in their restaurant and they were fabulous also.. We relaxed in the main area and listened to wonderful live music. The excitement in the air regarding a large... More
