I stayed with my two children (12 & 16).
Good points were the pool (nice size), and the gardens.
Bad points were:
1) The cooked breakfast- the quality was poor, mushrooms were old, sausage was no prize winner and service slow (by reason of insufficient staff rather than any lack of attentiveness). We did not risk staying for dinner.
2) Limited parking at hotel and car spaces also tight.
3) Limited opening times for pool e.g. on one of our days pool not available to guests until 11.00 am.
I was also taken back somewhat by a "corkage" charge of over £3 when I asked to use a bottle opener late evening after returning to the hotel.
- 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
