Lovely hotel, rooms plenty big mouth, would have liked an renovated room, with a walk in shower, but the room we had was great. Food is good and the staff are excellent, very friendly. Worth a visit we will be back

Service from start to finish was fabulous. Food (fish for both was excellent). Not too cheap but you do get what you pay for! A really good evening - special thanks to the 2 waitresses for the smiley efficient service.

The service was poor, no bread...

We were sorry to receive your review and this situation has been looked into with the team. Cliff House has been acclaimed and awarded considerably throughout the year and I believe the GM has written to you concerning your comments.

Visited Cliff House last Saturday for one night. The hotel was so lovely. It actually looks even better in real life. The interior of the hotel is very stylish and modern. We had afternoon tea which was a delight, and the mince pies (being almost Christmas) were possibly the best I have tasted, apparently home made. We stayed in a...

I wish I could give this place more than 5 stars. We have recently held our wedding at the Cliff House Hotel and it was absolutely perfect. The venue itself is beautiful, modern and clean. The staff are first class, especially Tim, the General Manager and Chamane, the Events Manager. Right from the start, Chamane couldn't do enough to help...

Well what can I say apart from "Fantastic". We've loved Cliff House Hotel from the moment it opened, so was the first choice when we wanted to get married. This beautiful, intimate and totally unique hotel is like no other. The team did an amazing job accommodating our families and friends over the whole weekend, nothing was too much trouble....

If you’re off for a few days to Bournemouth then you simply must try the Cliff House Hotel. We’ve been going to Bournemouth for short breaks for nearly 10 years and when we couldn’t get in at our usual hotel we had to try somewhere new, and this hotel didn’t disappoint, in fact we now wouldn’t want to stay anywhere...
