My wife and I had dinner here in the Dining room for our Anniversary. It was classy and elegant without being stuffy. Our fellow diners seemed to be older locals and enjoying a fine meal out, along with a few tourists from the hotel itself. The service and food were at the level you would expect for a high end...

My fiancé and I were staying at the Cliff House Hotel, and we decided to treat ourselves to a nice dinner in the hotel. Wow, what a meal! I had the elk steak with a lingonberry sauce, and she had the salmon. I have to say I was quite impressed, and I've eaten at some really great restaurants in my... More

Wow! Just wow! From the moment we sat down until the moment we left everything was just amazing! The shrimp cocktail was delicious, we only wished there were four of them instead of three. I had the best duck I've ever had, and my husband had the elk ribeye (his wasn't as good as mine). We had some great wine... More

Five star dining without the five star price tag! Don't change a thing. Everything about our dining experience was amazing. To handle 11 people and have everyone comment that their meals and appetizers were all awesome, is quite a compliment by itself. As a restaurant owner myself, my sincere compliments to the chef and staff for their excellence!

While wandering around Manitou Springs, hunger hit--and we stumbled upon Cliff House Hotel's dining room. Delectable food, reasonably priced.

It was pleasant to have lunch on the patio of this historic oldest hotel in Colorado. Food was pretty good, I would say 7 out of 10 top be on generous side. It's a good place to relax in the afternoon in nice surroundings.

Our waiter in their restaurant dining room for dinner was top notch, his name was Herb and he was probably one of the friendliest and best we have ever had! The food was excellent, and he made our night a little more special. I had the duck and it was awesome, and my husband really enjoyed his elk ribeye. The... More

Both dinner and breakfast were delicious! The frittata at breakfast was such a nice surprise. Be sure to snag a slice right away. Don't wait...it will be gone.
