Best hotel I have stayed in during my visits to Bournmouth. Will definitely be using again and would recommend this place to anyone. Breakfast was great and the staff very helpful. I was fortunate to get an offer price on my room but would happily pay the full rste

All the staff were very welcoming and made sure this was a really special occasion. The bar staff deserve a special mention as they were amazing! Our room was spacious and quiet with all the usual amenities,... More

The Cliff House Hotel is without a doubt the best boutique hotel on the South Coast. The rooms are spacious, meticulously clean and well appointed. The garden/terrace/bar area is somewhere that I'd feel as at home spending an afternoon working myself though the cocktail menu as I would be having a business meeting. What's more, we were less than 5... More

Very clean, modernistic décor. Pleasant bar/lounge area with friendly staff willing to whip up a cocktail at leisure, nice comfy seating both internally and externally in the gardens. Had a great vibe and can see this attracting non residents for a relaxing drink in the evenings or weekends. We stayed in room 15 which I think may be the best... More

my partner and I stayed here after seeing the hotel on booking.com. The pictures looked great and portrayed a modern fresh hotel. It was my partners birthday so wanted to give her something a little bit special. On arriving the exterior looked good. On entering the property we looked round for a reception desk. Only to find reception is an... More

After having our 25th Wedding Anniversary party at the hotel we stayed in room 12. The room was beautiful and overlooked the garden. It had everything you could need and the bathroom with separate shower was huge. Excellent breakfast the following morning. I would highly recommend xx

My friends had their party here, and we stayed over. It's a laid back friendly place, with a lovely garden. Really recommend going here, as it's so different from anything else on the area. The staff, friendly and accommodating. And the food was very tasty !
