“Cliffmount Hotel should have extra star”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

We've just returned from sunny Runswick Bay, a long drive but totally worth it, great staff, excellent food and spotless hotel. I tipped the staff, but forgot the cleaners, who should be rewarded as well. Will be back again that is four sure! Karen and Steve Wallace Ascot Berkshire

Room Tip: Ask for the seaview, it is so stunning, you think your abroad...

We had a lovely spotless room with fabulous views over the bay. Overall a successful stay but a few things could be improved. The staff were friendly and for the most part very helpful. The cleaning staff were so honest. I accidentally left belongings in a drawer and I had a phone call inviting me back to pick up. Fantastic. My husband and I enjoyed our stay overall and hope our comments are helpful for improving things further.
Shower: ran for 10 minutes and could not get hot water (we were told to be patient as we were at the top of the house). Never did get hot water out of it so it must be faulty.
Dining room: very stuffy and hot. We asked several times for the double doors o be opened but no-one would do it. The window only seemed to open about three inches.
Food: very nice menu. Unfortunately I had a problem with part of my min course nod was told no-one else had complained! Not a helpful attitude
Bar: lovely bar where we were told we had time to have a second drink but immediately whisked off to dining room where we waited for 15 minutes for our starter.
Bedroom: would just point out that the white blind on the Velux window lets in the owning light a bit too early. Recommend a dark one.
These are small points which caused minor irritations at the time. Overall I have given the hotel a very good.

Room Tip: Sea view is a must.

Just returned from a weekend away with my husband and from start to finish we were looked after exceptionally well. We were given a room with a fantastic view of Runswick Bay, the room itself was spotlessly clean. On the evening we had booked a table, which again has a view of the sea, and we had opted for the 5 course taster meal, which was amazing, the staff were very friendly and the food was so good we booked again for the following night. Then came breakfast the next morning which was again first class, anywhere that offers smoked salmon in the morning is a sure fire winner. I would recommend this hotel and will be returning without a doubt. Thank you all for such a beautiful weekend.

Just got back from a one night stay where we met up with some friends, must say we all thoroughly enjoyed the stay. From arrival to departure the whole experience was wonderful. Cannot fault the service in anyway, attentive, friendly staff on hand at all times. Rooms were spotlessly clean with the most stunning views had from all 3 rooms that were stayed in. Food on the evening was amazing, we all had the tasting menu and there were no clean plates left. A great way to taste fresh local produce that appeals to sea food lovers and meat eaters too. We will certainly spread the word about this little hidden gem and will not hesitate to return again. Carol and Ian you should both be proud of yourselves, see you again very soon.

We spent our wedding annervisary at the Cliffemount Hotel in Runswick bay, there were seveal nice surprises, first the weather was great, this small hotel prides its self quite rightly on its attention to detail, the friendly staff do their best to make you welcome and comfortable.
We had bed, breakfast and evening meal and can vouch for the food, the lamb which we both had on the Thursday was exceptional. The room over looks the bay and the whole setting is very peaceful. There are plenty of places to visit round and about, Guisborough, Saltburn, Stokesley and of course Whitby.

Special attention to charity shop geeks, the three best shops ever with in fifty yards of each other are in Guisborough,, the age concern retro fit charity shop takes the top award but only just, great fun

We have just returned from 3 days at this hotel and what a great time we have had. From the minute we arrived when we were greeted by the manager, Mark Sherlock, to when we left nothing was to much trouble. The staff were all as pleasant as Mark, the hotel has a great outlook, the food was amazing and we came back much heavier than when we arrived. The room had a lovely sea view and all we could hear was an occasional sea gull. other than that, perfect peace. I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone, although not as cheap as some places, it lived up to and surpassed all our expectations.
Many thanks to all at the hotel

I surprised my husband for our wedding anniversary and wow we wasn't disappointed. The hotel is in an ideal location the view is stunning and the staff are so helpful and friendly. Mark is a top guy who was helpful throughout our stay. We stayed in room 5 we were able to timmy our little dog and he could stay in the hotel for a small extra charge. Timmy loved it here the fuss he got from staff and guests was great. The room didn't smell of dog was clean. We ate on both nights at the hotel and wasn't disappointed. Expect to take plenty of money its not your usual pub prices but worth it. There's no atm nearby so think ahead.
We will most defiantly return here
