I stayed as a couple for one night in August 14. We paid £137 for a standard double room and were disappointed with the whole experience. The room we were given looked tired and worn out as well as obviously being furnished as cheaply as possible (20 years ago!). The walls were covered in scuff marks and the paint on the skirting boards was full of chips. The bathroom floor was covered in cheap horrible lino and the cheap electric shower fitted gave so little pressure you were left incapable of having a proper wash. The swimming pool in the hotel was not particularly clean and had numerous lights that didn't work as well as bits of the ceiling missing.
Overall with the Suncliff, you get the impression that the owners are squeezing as much profit out of the hotel as possible (by over-pricing rooms to the limit) while spending the bare minimum on maintenance and decor. One of the barman at the hotel when we asked him about what he thought of the rooms and hotel said it would get 1 star in his country of origin not the 3 stars it has in the UK.
Positive about the hotel was that the staff were friendly. However for the price charged this hotel is not worth it. It was a relief to be leaving!
