My sight impaired sister booked in for a 4 night stay in August, together with a sighted companion. The Reception area is tiny, cramped and right in front of the main door entrance, with one staff booking in and out. Very busy with people bumping into each other - a disaster waiting to happen. The hotel is tired and in need of modernisation. A visit from Alex Polizzi would do them a power of good! Entertainment was promised but failed to materialise. On the positive side, the staff were friendly but in short supply and overstretched. Overall a poor experience.
- 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
