I booked this hotel for a very last minute weekend away. Having used an online forum to book I was a little nervous about where we were going and how good the hotel would be... but how pleasantly surprised I was!! Set in an absolutely stunning setting, with views over to I.O.W, we had a lovely room overlooking the sea...

Had a lovely weekend at The Cliff House in January. Initially the room was very cold but the owners were more than happy to supply extra heat. This is a lovely place with a really nice restaurant and fantastic freshly cooked breakfast! (Really go for the breakfast alone). Friendly staff and a beautiful location. They informed us before hand that...

We recently spent the weekend at The Cliff House, and it was a fantastic couple of days away from it all. Immediate impressions were nothing but great, it was obvious that a lot of attention to detail had been put in to the decor, creating a smart yet cosy, coastal feel. We arrived as a family with our 15 month...

What a wonderful, family run place to stay / eat. We were well taken care of at every point of our stay, from offering recommendations for where we should eat, to serving incredible gin. The rooms were great, clean, fully equipped and with a nautical feel. Breakfast was superb, and included in the price of the room which is great...

We loved the Cliff House! We were visiting friends a few weeks ago and came across them and were not disappointed. Great location on the beach and staff were really friendly and helpful. Great food and a real family feel to the business. Would definitely stay again and recommend.

Loved this hotel which was right on the beach. Unfortunately we stayed Sunday and the restaurant is closed on a Sunday evening. However this did not stop us enjoying ourselves. The owners were amazing and really helpful. We were allowed to take our dog which was really appreciated. Couldn't recommend highly enough. Excellent thank you.

Another lovely stay at the Cliff House, this time being able to take advantage of sunny weather in October! What a wonderful place to sit outside with one (or two) of the Cliff House's famous gin and tonics, and a cosy blanket, enjoying the ever-changing view and the sea air. Our bedroom was very comfortable and breakfast was a joy...

A group of 11 of us took over all seven bedrooms of The Cliff House for a weekend and had a great time. We used the restaurant on one of our evenings; it's obvious the bar and restaurant are a popular local amenity and this gave the place a real buzz. Our meal was excellent and I appreciated they had...

I can not find Words enough to say how much I enjoyed the time spent here! The position (right on the clifftop, looking out to sea)was wonderful and we made full use of the patio area. The breakfasts were great(especially the kedgeree) and nothing was too much trouble. When we arrived we were made very welcome , and after settling...
