Lovely stay
Lovely stay at The Cliff House Hotel. We stayed in Portland, which has a sea view overlooking the Isle of Wight. To check in and access the room you go through the bar area, which at times did not feel completely Covid secure due to the restaurant/bar area being busy. The room key and details were provided in a paper bag and all re-usable amenities had been removed from the room, however this meant that there was no soap in the room. There were hand gel dispensers at the entrance to the restaurant and outside each guest room. The room was in good condition however could do with a bit of TLC. Due to Covid there was no room cleaning, which suited us. We ate in the restaurant one night of our stay and the food was delicious, highy recommend that, and the gin selection! The breakfast was table service with a small selection of food, however we were able to order as much as we wanted. The location was perfect, with plenty of walks along the cliff top and beach, but also close to supermarkets and towns. All the staff were friendly and welcoming and trying to be as Covid secure as possible.

Not the best for price
It was just ok! Bed myside i could feet springs in my back as so worn along with bedding and pillows! Sadly the shower room was dirty and could of had more attentioned paid to it. No instruction on cleaning or any replenishing of tea coffee on room so felt an inconvenience for having to keep asking and when checked out just took key and didnt even ask if enjoyed our stay just walk away i felt was so rude! Where shower room was dirty under floor storage my dog found three treats and dog users food !! Was so noisy !!!

Little Gem
This was our second stay at The Cliff House Hotel, having visited for one night with friends, last October. We stayed in Plymouth this time which has lovely views of the sea. We ate in the restaurant on three consecutive nights and the food was excellent. Breakfasts are varied and plentiful. The staff are friendly and couldn't do enough to help. It's a fabulous little hotel in a wonderful location and we will be going back very soon!
