waited at the at for over 10 mins, all this time the bar manageress and another bar member stood talking at the other end, when they did serve us not one mention of an apology for us waiting to be served. Have never liked the place as it lacks atmosphere but we only went to meet up with friends. wont... More

We returned to the Cliff Hotel for a complimentary high tea after a bad lunch time experience a couple of months ago. On that occasion the service was terrible. Slow and totally indifferent. My friend contacted the owner to feedback the details of our visit as we were so disappointed with no expectation at all. However, she received a lovely... More

We have just got back from a great weekend at this hotel. I am suprised at some of the comments before on here as we couldnt fault it. From a welcome check in to a swift checkout. The room was recently refurbished and was spacious .. we didnt have a sea view but that was fine and we looked over... More

I have been staying at this property for some ten years. In that time there have been massive improvements in bedrooms and public areas. Sadly, ongoing maintenance has not always been good and service remains very variable. The hotel has three stars and it is easy to forget this and therefore expect more from them when visiting the restaurant and... More

The food was lovely, we only popped in for a drink but after eyeing up food from another table we placed our order & we were far from disappointed, it was lush. Cleanliness was spot on. Staff smiled & were polite. All i could ask for. I cant rate the hotel as we didnt stay!!

We stayed here for a dinner tribute act event. The hotel is lovely. Not a chain buy t certainly four star. The room was lovely with a great shower bed and amenities. The location is stunning and it has an amazing terrace area looking over the sea. The house DJ was brilliant. Chris Speed managed the whole evening with class... More

Not knowing much about the area the cliff hotel looked great on Facebook do we thought we'd try it. The views of a lovely sandy beach are amazing and that's where the good things stop, unfortunately. We wanted a fish finger and soda bread sandwich but at 12.30ish they didn't have any so we opted for jackets. You can't go... More

Treated to afternoon tea which which having heard much about had looked forward to but oh what a disappointment. Thank goodness the company was great! It was a shambles, directed to the bar to book in but despite staff were kept waiting, basically there was an inadequate system for dealing with these bookings. We were told to select a table...

Stayed for a single night as part of a secret escapes package. Upgraded to a "sea view room" where the room size was very good but the "view" was mainly of the terrace and the chimney from the restaurant underneath, however it did have a small balcony. That is perhaps the only slightly negative aspect. The value, service and food... More
