We came to this hotel for a family wedding which took place in the lower grounds of the hotel. The hotel catered for the wedding reception & the food & food service team was lovely so no real issues with this. The events manager did as much as he could to help the day run smoothly. Pros: Beautiful location and... More

I stayed here with my teenage son for 1 week. The room was clean and light although the water pressure for the shower was very weak and it took a while to get wet!! The hotel is in a wonderful situation however. It is easy to get out and about without a vehicle of your own as the beach and... More

At time rooms have to be taken out of service for emergency repairs, or other circumstances beyond our control. We will endeavour to meet any guest requests, but cannot guarantee... More

Very poor quality accommodation and room was smelly and dirty. Would definitely not recommend it. Breakfast was very low quality and breakfast buffet table was a joke. Cheap and nasty and definitely in need renovation. Felt more like a low grade youth hostel. The only good thing is the setting and grounds but these do not compensate. Poor sleep due... More

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

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
