A truly wonderful hotel in a fantastic position overlooking an amazing beach in Tenby. Perfectly and stylishly decorated and furnished rooms in the classic high end style with extremely comfortable beds. Nothing was too much trouble for the welcome reception and restaurant staff. The owners Martin and Christine really know the meaning of hospitality, a must when operating a hotel and so important to guests. The food was the best we had in Tenby - all top quality produce,served with a smile and a certain panache and rated as the best food in Tenby - highly recommended hotel and would definitely return for another visit.

Just returned from three nights and must say great value for money. Wonderful sea view
room. Large, spacious and extremely comfortable. Meals were excellent and all hot, which
is not easy when catering for 50 plus people who all need to be served at the same time.
Well done to the chef and those waiting on. Found all the staff helpful and polite.
Many thanks from John, Yvonne & Vera.

I recently stayed at this hotel and if your after a relaxed peaceful olde world type hotel you have got it in one! The hotel is very clean and kept to a nice standard but the thing that does make the hotel is the food it is amazing which does set this hotel apart from others in the area! The only thing that let it down was the service at evening meal times but this was due to new staff just starting.

Just spent two nights at the Cliffe Norton. Fantastic value for dinner, bed and breakfast. This is a 2 star hotel but the food was more like 4 star quality. We had requested a beachfront room on a high floor and we were not disappointed. The views over the bay were magnificent from two very large windows. The hotel built in the Victorian era has lots of stair cases but there is a lift. They do have certain routines e.g. bar open from 6.00-6.30pm and again from 8.00-11.30pm, dinner at 6.30pm and breakfast at 8.30am sharp. There was an entertainer each night and the tour groups seemed to enjoy this but we didn't bother and we weren't bothered by it. We found all the staff to be very friendly and helpful and nothing was too much bother. The location is the best in Tenby. I would highly recommend it for its location, the food and the staff.

Room Tip: It's worth requesting a high floor facing the water. Our room was above the dining area which w...

Just home from a coach trip to Tenby,not a holiday but to see family for a special birthday. The Cliffe Norton was, as advertised, old fashioned and a bit shabby but I was not prepared for the maze of, corridors and tiny lifts that could not be used instead of stairs as you had to go either up or down to reach the floor you wanted.
I also knew that as a solo traveller I would be charged extra and get a poor aspect but the broom cupboard was something else. It measured about 6ftx 9ft with an eighteen inch window looking at a blank wall and a rubbish tip. There was a small chair wedged in a corner and the tiny ,dodgy television was only viewable sitting on the bed or getting to it. The en-suite had a bath with a shower over and no grab rails or handles.
All this was changed after the first night when I complained but the new room still looked out the back. I was informed that front rooms were extra but I had already paid the travel company what turned out to be four times the hotel's charge for a single room.
The saving grace to all this was the food and the staff who were great. The dinners were superb, hot, tasty and beautifully cooked and served. The last straw was the final night when no-one got any sleep from 2a.m. due to a dodgy fire alarm. No one came round to say it was a false alarm and one lady spent the rest of the night fully dressed in a chair waiting to see if she had to go out onto the pavement in pouring rain.

Room Tip: Do not go unless you are very fit and able.
