My husband and I have just come back from a 4 day stay at the Norcliffe Hotel, and we had a brilliant time there. Nick was a fantastic host and went out of his way to make sure everyone was ok and had a good time. The food WAS FRESH and beautifully cooked. Ok this is not a 5 star hotel but the rooms have all the basics you need and are clean. The bar is well stocked and although the entertainment could have been better, Nick made the effort to dance with as many elderly ladies as he could.
If you are looking for a cheap and cheerful hotel then this is the one to book in Babbacombe

having spent a few days at the Norcliffe hotel, i found the place clean and tidy, the food and service were of a very good standard, the hotel also provided entertainment on a few night, which i would recommend.
I look forward to a return visit.

On arrival we were given keys to our room and the front door which remained locked at all times,our first impression was "tired scruffy and tatty"We were booked in for 4days but after seeing our room(the best in the place)which we had paid extra for the sea view and then our meal at night which we were told was homemade everything,rubbish,the food was either out of a packet,a tin or the freezer and into the microwave.There was no vegetarian option other than salad regected by the rabbit.We had to order the next meal ahead.The room was so old the TV was so old you had to get out of bed to turn it off and on,the radio was home and light service should have been in the museum.The linen had marks on that looked like chewing gum and the curtains had been cut by a knife anbd sewn by a monkey and hung on 1940's metal track.We checked out and were unable to get a refund.They cannot survive even though their reception area is full of thank you cards obviously written by their extended family.Beware of this Hell Hole you have been warned.
