We have being returning to the Cliff House Hotel for the past 4 years for our anniversary and every time we always have the most relaxing of stays. We arrived and were shown to our room which was amazing, having a sitting area, wonderful bathroom and bedroom separated by a partition which had LCD TV and built in fuel-effect fire. There is also nothing nicer than going to sleep with the sound of the ocean in the background.
An hour after visiting the room we visited the pool area and enjoyed a sea-weed bath outdoors as the last light of the winter's day went from dark blue to black and the first of the stars appeared. A wonderful experience and well worth trying if you visit.
Breakfast is always a very pleasant and relaxed experience and the view is also one you could eat-up! There is plenty you can do from the hotel and the highlight is the Cliff Walk where you can enjoy an approximate 2 hour loop walk, taking in whale-watching areas, the wreck of the Samson crane which crashed on the rocks in 1987 and the Ardmore round tower. Wellington boots are available from the hotel.
We enjoyed meals in the bar on both nights, trying the excellent December taster menu on one night. I also tried a steak which I would only eat once ever 6 months and it was excellent and perfectly cooked.
We will be back next year for our 5th anniversary but we often just drop in for lunch which is also nice after a walk on the beach - even if we are not staying over! Thanks again to all the staff who made our stay most enjoyable

All our luxury rooms and suites are sea facing while many are interconnected to provide family-friendly configurations. Our intimate destination spa, The Well, is a key attraction. ... more less
