Don't visit if you don't like dogs !!! We didn't realise that this hotel caters primarily for the blind and partially sighted. And of course their guide dogs. Out little dog became rather overwhelmed !!
Room and bathroom spotlessly clean and very well equipped. Decor unimaginative. Good service. Breakfast menu OK. Beautiful grounds. Efficient staff but they seemed either bored or overtired. WiFi in public areas only.
Evening entertainment if you like that sort of thing.
Unless you are the sort of person that enjoyed school dinners .. eat out !!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Cliffden Hotel was built as a private House in 1815 for Sir John Strachan on 35 acres of grounds adjacent to the Dawlish Road. The original gardens were built in the Regency style gardens, with smooth lawns, shrubberies and trelliswork and wall-plants against the lower storey of the house. In 1988, the then current owner Dr Mules retired, he put Cliffden House up for sale with the understanding that it would be used for "greater good". The House was purchased by Guide Dogs for the blind and converted to a hotel which offer accommodation to both blind, sighted and partially sighted guests. The hotel now sits in 7 acres of landscaped gardens, and a short walk through these private grounds brings you to the glorious seafront at Teignmouth. ... more less
