Last time we were staying here we were at at Wine Tasting Dinner. We had the new managers telling us of all the new ideas that were being incorporated. Some asked, "why change things, when this was such a nice hotel to visit" Have not been back since changes have been done.

A few years ago, a friend introduced me to the brunch at the Cliff House. Very, very nice and the view was beautiful. The assortment of food offered was wonderful. A very nice experience.

Breathtaking ocean views overlooking dramatic rocky coastline. Outside patio has 4 tables. One server who couldn't manage the tables. Lobster bisque showed up cold. They replaced it. Never inquired how it was first or second time how it was. Server never asked me about wanting a bill. It was as if I was invisible. If you are a tourist and... More

Hotel is very well located on the cliffs of Maine. We got a mini suite and the window blinds wouldn't shut all the way. The balcony was very dirty with some spider net, disgusting, not even pleasurable to read a book with a terrific view. There was no safe in the bedroom. The Jacuzzi/ pool are were unattended and beer... More
