The Cliffden Hotel sits in 7 acres of landscaped gardens, and a short walk through these private grounds brings you to the glorious seafront at Teignmouth, Devon. With a Blue Flag beach just 200 yard's away, its clear why this is a popular hotel for those wanting to enjoy the beautiful beaches and seascapes of the Devon coast. Each of the 47 guest bedrooms has modern facilities, with many enjoying garden and sea views and some boasting a fantastic balcony.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fantastic receptionist, just like Polly Our Dinner eventually arrived 45 minutes after ordering - in a drafty conservatory, minus any condiments. Lactose intolerant guest served creamy mash not chips. We didn’t mention the war. Next day…They ran out of eggs, bacon and sausages during breakfast - Mr Fawlty, I know nothing! Then the silvery tea urn disappeared…Ohh I KNOW! Did anyone ask Lord Melbury?

I stayed here with my family and dogs. The room was very large and comfortable. Excellent, helpful staff. It’s an historic building with some lovely old features such as original fireplaces. You can walk down the landscaped gardens to a private gate leading onto the sea front.

Lovely gardens. Room next to the noisy road. Very dog friendly. This could be a great hotel. Just needs attention to details. Dirty bathroom. Just needs some cylecone on the joints. New toilet seat. Water pressure sorted. hair in the shower

Close to the beach and town. The receptionist was very helpful, the parking was convenient and the room was lovely for the evening. The grounds were nice and enjoyed a stroll around the garden. Was easy to find the train station, beach and walk into town

The location of this hotel is perfect. The grounds are lovely and there is private access to the sea front via the back gate. Unfortunately our room was quite bad. Mould on the shower door, thick grime on the bathroom floor, thick dust on the radiator and really loud plumbing. Or second room was cleaner.

Fabulous place for a weekend away, beautiful see views, stunning gardens, pool room with TV so watch rugby whilst playing pool, a gentle walk through the gardens leads you to the beach, close to shops but still a really quiet location. Gardens locked do for use by residents only. Super dog friendly, towels available for those doggies that go for a swim. Breakfast was good

We have never taken our Collie, Barney, to a Hotel before and were in some trepidation that he might be overwhelmed, particularly as we were meeting friends there and he absolutely adores meeting people he knows. We need not have worried. The Hotel was super-pet-friendly, and made it abundantly obvious that our dog was an important guest. The once or twice he barked in excitement elicited no "telling off" or comment - he was a happy dog in a happy hotel that understands that telling a dog not to bark is akin to Canute and the sea! As to the hotel, clean, lovely location, very friendly staff one and all. We had a two night stay and breakfast each day was just perfect - full English, unlimited amount, staff couldn't have been more helpful if you wanted something like poached eggs instead of scrambled. The dining area is very clean, lovely views, bright and sunny. The Room - number 7 - was more than adequate (we tend to simply assume we'll need the bed and the bathroom and otherwise be out) - not the world's greatest view (essentially a wall!) but it had the advantage of no passing cars/people and thus no barking from Barney, which might of course be the point. VERY close to the town and thus an easy stroll into the shops and pubs (of which Teignmouth has a good share, it has to be said). We had a lovely stroll along the seafront wall each day, and there seems to be a good mix of retail and other outlets. All in all we had a cracking time and would thoroughly recommend it - it's not the Ritz, but it's comfortable, warm, well-placed, friendly and - the bonus - 100% pet friendly.

The hotel staff were friendly and the rooms were fine, warm and hot water all the time. The public rooms were comfortable and tastefully decorated. Quite spectacular and extensive grounds but be aware they have changed the gate to the seafront's code, the code on the A4 paper they give you on ,check-in, is correct. The code on the key card pouch and the room information book are out of date and it's a long walk back to the hotel. In our opinion the food let the hotel badly, breakfast was fine, if limited, but dinner was grim. the menu was a good size but with 'pub type grub' easy cook items. People on half board choose from that menu but the quality and cooking left a lot to be desired. The Cumberland Sausage was tasteless no herbs and lack of protein and was rather like their breakfast sausage. Next night we tried the Hangry Burger it was well over cooked, dry on the inside and one could have done with an axe to break through outer surface. We gather they have three chefs and we must have had the Cremation Kid and it wasn't if he was under pressure, we were the only two left in the restaurant when we ordered . However the portions were generousness almost too big. We decided to eat out after the two very poor meals and if we stay there again we would opt for B&B rather than half board. A nice stay at a good hotel, spoiled by the evening food
