6/10 Good

Nice location.
The hotel itself is situated in a pleasant residential area, within easy reach of the beach and surrounding towns. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The room was well appointed with water, teas and coffees and a coffee machine. Bathroom had plenty of toiletries, bath and separate shower. Everywhere was clean in both the shared spaces and rooms. Nice bar / lounge on site. However, we both found the beds too hard, the TV didn’t always work and there was a very noisy boiler next to our room that fired up before 7.30 every morning and stayed fired up for the next 12 hours. An unpleasant wake up call every morning. I think staff might also sleep on the top floor and playing music loudly at 11 at night was a bit much and constantly walking around the room - although when we tried to speak to staff about it, they blamed the noise on ghosts! A buffet breakfast is at the weekends, but I would do one every day and not just waitress service during the week, Good choice for breakfast and all hot too.

Wonderful hotel
We stayed at the Cliff House hotel for 3 nights. We had a warm welcome when we arrived and shown to our room at 10am which definitely was a big bonus. The hotel was very clean and our room was spotless. In all the years we have been staying in hotels, the breakfast was amazing. All freshly cooked and lots of choice too. We would definitely recommend staying here and will be coming back when we visit the area again

It was the second year that I had stayed at the hotel so it was good to have something familiar and was convenient to my family for transport.

4/10 Fair

The garden is not as per the picture. It’s untidy.
Arrived in the middle of a very large charity event. Very noisy.staff more focussed on the event than on residents. No restaurant or bar meals available at this time. If we had known this we would not have booked. The following day we thought we would eat in the hotel. Arrived in the bar at 5pm to be told they had stopped serving and the chef had gone home. Breakfast was a buffet affair which offered very poor choice if you were a vegetarian. There was an alternative breakfast menu but this was not advertised and we only stumbled across it three days in. Then it felt like it was a bit of a chore for them to prepare something else. To leave the hotel from our room we had to walk through the breakfast room. On one day the room had been hired out to someone to conduct hearing tests and they could get irritable if the were disturbed. So we were asked to exit the hotel, during this time, via the tradesman side door. Housekeeping was hit and miss with us having to track a member of staff down to replenish tea/coffee. For the first 3 days the cold water in the shower ran as hot as the hot tap making it uncomfortable to have a shower. This apparently happens quite often and after a plumber was called the cold tap ran just as warm rather than hot. Wallpaper was starting to peel off the wall in the room. The rooms were a decent size, nicely decorated and comfortable but things like wallpaper peeling away from the wall detract from this. The hotel is well located for the beach

Mixed feelings
The hotel is ideally placed for the beach which is just a few mins walk away. It has a small free car park and quite a large outside area. All the staff were very pleasant and helpful. The room was a reasonable size and clean. However, on arrival we did expect we would be able to get lunch, just a sandwich or something similar but the other kitchen was closed due to lack of food? There is no food available any week on Mondays or Tuesdays after 4pm which is disappointing. There a Greenking chain pub on the seafront. We did ea on Wednesday evening but it was rather a limited menu which would make it difficult to eat there every night. Food service stopped at 8pm and the bar shut at 9pm. Thevfood 2as good well cooked and enjoyable. We also disliked the shower and were glad to get home to have a real shower. There is a notice in the bathroom asking guests to be patient because it takes a long time for the water to run through.This was not the problem, the problem was the tap did not transfer all the water to the shower head and it was only a dribble It was a shame because it could have been very very nice
