Stayed two nights for a family wedding. On arrival told that we might have to move hotels as they had double-booked. We didn't move. Bed comfortable and room clean but noisy. Breakfast average with carton orange juice and poor coffee served by willing and friendly staff. Great views from terrace bar.

Dear Jonesey01

Thank you for the review ! We enjoyed the fact that the whole hotel was booked by just one family and it was a pleasure having you all here. What a great way to meet up, booking a whole hotel! The visit obviously went well judging by the number of your guests who booked an extra nights stay!

With regard to the breakfast we are exploring the option of fresh orange juice with breakfast - but our current offering is of a premium quality and just to show that we do listen the Coffee rep is booked in for an appointment this Friday! It is great when people help us to improve our offering so thank you again for the feedback!

We look forward to seeing you all again very soon.

What a lovely hotel, staff, service, cleanliness of rooms, friendliness of staff, food, all extremely good. The terrace was a delight and although very busy it did not affect our stay in a sea view room. A lovely relaxing break. Well done to the management of The Cliff Hotel. You run a very nice hotel to an exceptional standard.

Room Tip: Sea view a must as the beach is beautiful

Dear Planet3484

thank you for the glowing review!
I am so pleased you found your stay so good , you are right about the terrace ,you could be anywhere in the world... we make a point of seeing things from the customers perspective and I too would be very pleased to arrive at a hotel and have this as part of the offering. Thank you for the kind words with regards to the management but the majority of the praise really does belong to the team here.. they do a great job!

We'd been recommended this hotel by friends. I'd read other reviews about the noise from the terrace so had some reservations, however all you need to do is close the windows. The staff couldn't do more for you, everyone is extremely pleasant. The bar area gets a little busy at times but it's only to be expected. The rooms are well maintained and clean, the food in the restaurant was excellent, there's even a home made pizza and burger parlour for those after something smaller. And there's even a cocktail bar for something a little more exotic. We spent 2 very pleasant evenings there and would have no hesitation in going back again.

We would highly recommend The Cliff Hotel, Gorleston if you are planning a stay in the area or for any party or function, the organisation for our wedding was second to none, we could not fault this in any way. We had the bridal suite and well when we walked in we were speechless, it was faultless, it even had a spa bath. All the staff were very friendly and were helpful at all times. The food was outstanding, all of our wedding guests commented on how lovely it was. We felt very relaxed all day in the care of the staff at The Cliff Hotel.

Me and my husband decided to go away for a night on our own, my husband chose this hotel for us as a surprise. When he said it was near Great Yarmouth, I was a bit worried, as I didn't fancy the amusements etc, so when we arrived at Gorleston I was very pleased, as it was not what I expected, and then we arrived at the hotel, and I knew he had made a good choice, the staff were very friendly, rooms were lovely and the food was fantastic. I would definitely recommend this hotel. We will definitely be returning in the near future.

Dear Maria B

thank you for taking the time to review our hotel.. it is great when guests use trip advisor to let the rest of the world know what to expect!
Gorleston genuinely is a lovely place to be.. great beaches ..vibrant.. some great food offerings and of course the jewel in the crown the Cliff hotel!

I am glad you and your husband had a lovely time (and that he got the choice right for your surprise! )
we look forward to seeing you again very soon!
