We stayed in the Penthouse 'Harry' which has an amazing glass balcony, just a shame the folding glass doors couldn't be opened fully, so only had access to balcony through small door. We were told someone would come out Next day to fix the door but no one came, so told reception, again no one turned up, then the cleaner told us it couldn't be open as past guests had broken it, would have been nice if someone on reception had told us that in the beginning,so beware if you are offered Harry as a Penthouse room, don't expect the sliding double doors to open, but the balcony does have the most amazing views.
Staff were friendly especially the barman at night. Entertainment was on every night while we we're there, but there are different lounges and a conservatory to go in if you want a quiet night. bar prices for beers and bottles were a decent price, just the bottle of wines that were overpriced, but as we had a balcony, barman gave us ice and we chilled our own wine and sipped it on the balcony.
Breakfast is nice, cereals, tinned fruit and there was melon at the weekends, the cooked buffet was very good indeed.
The swimming pool was ok for a 3 star hotel, we noticed a lot of complaints about the pool in previous reviews, but don't be put off, it's a nice warm pool, but don't expect the Ritz
The hotel and our room were very clean and if we were to stay in this area again, we would certainly come back, but just remember this is a 3 star hotel, some people expect to pay 3 star prices and get 5 star quality.
One big tip......after checking different hotel websites, we actually saved £170 by booking on the Suncliffe's own website for our 4 night stay so do your homework first before booking!! If you can afford it, get a room with a balcony, you will not be disappointed.
