My first visit to the Cliff Hotel for many years. We were pleasantly surprised . The restaurant has had a makeover. It looks clean and contemporary. We had a table next to the window which offered great views over the seafront. The menu though not extensive was interesting and provided enough choice for all four of us. When the food... More

The quality of food at the Cliff hotel has improved since the change in ownership, the kitchen refitted and restaurant given a make-over. We found our meals excellent, the staff helpful and friendly. I believe that we were the party on the table referred to in a recent review and need to correct an apparent misunderstanding. My wife was not... More

I ordered the cheeseburger but it smelt very off and the smell put me off eating any of the chips because it was so bad...I did tell the waitress but was too scared to tell who I think was the manager because it looked like she had told someone off on the next table for not...

Stayed on a recent trip for one night. Building is clearly in need of some tlc on the outside and inside. Room was ok, bed comfortable although plumbing questionable. View from room was great, best thing about this hotel. The lady on reception could be a bit more welcoming. I don't expect a red carpet just a hello would have... More

We booked afternoon tea for my sisters birthday, it was lovely, we had a good selection of sandwiches, cakes and scones, unlimited tea or coffee, it was worth every penny, the young waitress called Devin was a lovely girl, very pleasant, happy and accommodating, would recommend this treat to others.

I was slightly apprehensive booking at the Cliff Hotel, but was pleasantly surprised with our en suite king room overlooking the sea. The hotel is amazing and has a lot of character. It's under new management and sounds like it's going through an exciting refurbish. The service was lovely. The room was perfectly clean. There was a brand new big... More

A last minute rush for a hotel in Harwich found me staying at The Cliff hotel as it was the only place available. Decor, although not to my taste may suit someone into their 70s retro with a lovely green bathroom suite and dated feel throughout. (The u-bend of the toilet was held together with parcel tape). The mattress was... More
