We stayed here for our holiday. We knew that it was a Vision hotel. Our initial room was stuffy, dark, cramped and dirty. It overlooked "the close" but the noise of traffic from Dawlish Road was horrendous and non stop. I live on a busy main road at home but this was worse. The shower was over the bath -not... More

First visit to this hotel and we were so impressed, to be somewhere that caters so well for anyone with a visual impairment and particularly with a guide dog, is a real bonus. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff and they dealt so sensitively with guests, such a relaxed atmosphere, I would really recommend it. The... More

We stayed in a room shoved up the other end which needed serious upliftment! The dinner lounge has all hair over the floor to and the cutlery needs to be renewed ! Very old . The manger... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Cliffden Hotel was built as a private House in 1815 for Sir John Strachan on 35 acres of grounds adjacent to the Dawlish Road. The original gardens were built in the Regency style gardens, with smooth lawns, shrubberies and trelliswork and wall-plants against the lower storey of the house. In 1988, the then current owner Dr Mules retired, he put Cliffden House up for sale with the understanding that it would be used for "greater good". The House was purchased by Guide Dogs for the blind and converted to a hotel which offer accommodation to both blind, sighted and partially sighted guests. The hotel now sits in 7 acres of landscaped gardens, and a short walk through these private grounds brings you to the glorious seafront at Teignmouth. ... more   less
