“Excellent Stay”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

My husband and I booked a late deal for a night away from our teenage sons who are busy revising and this turned out to be perfect. Gareth kindly gave us an upgrade to a sea view room and it was large and nicely furnished. All the staff were pleasant, friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the quiet ambience of the bar in the evening and breakfast was excellent with a good choice on the hot breakfast buffet, plenty of fresh fruit and yoghurt options as well as the expected breads, cereals and pastries. The hotel is a bit of a walk from the town centre but this means that the beach is quieter. We didn't try the outside pool since the weather was bright but chilly!

Stayed in a few different hotels over the past year whilst visiting our son at uni.
We have to say EastCliff is now top. Friendly & helpful team, a curtsey call to check all was ok when we had been in our room for about 5 minutes was appreciated. Room clean, bathroom perhaps needs attention (tired).
We could see the sea. Swan in the pool next door, indoor & heated.
Nice bar & lounge area and Breakfast lovely, especially the sausages!!
Great beach/cliff walk. Central to town. Car parking not a problem & free!!

Ive just returned from a 2 night stay at this hotel, on a hen do. The exterior of the hotel really does the property a disservice, the reception, bar area and restaurant are all very nice and we got a lovely surprise when we got to our rooms, all with side sea view and really nicely appointed. Very contemporary decor and we were instantly impressed.
The staff really couldnt do enough for us and everyone we came into contact with was polite and helpful. A special mention to Robert on reception ;-)
It was apparently the hotels first year hosting hen weekends, and ill be honest and say that I think the hotel is much too nice for this; a wedding was happening on the saturday in the hotel and we think maybe the hotel should concentrate more on this side of things as im not sure it would cope if we had been a rowdy bunch of girls!
We had a great stay and I wouldnt hesitate to return here with my husband.

A warm welcome from staff with a free upgrade to a sea view room. Clean, warm and with all the extras you need. Very good breakfast with a vast selection of fruit, cereals, breads etc. a male stag party also at the hotel, although not a problem I am not sure appropriate for a four star hotel.

We stayed at the above hotel form the 14th May for 2 nights. Our room was newly refurbished , very clean and overlooking the sea.
The staff and the service of this hotel are excellent.
The breakfast and dinner which we had there were brilliant.
We are usually very critical when we stay in hotels but with this hotel, we cannot fault anything.

Room Tip: Choose a refurbished room

Was fortunate to stay at the Hotel for the Police Federation Conference after the initial hotel we were supposed to be at went into administration! Excellent hotel and very nice room. Again fortunate to get an upgrade which added to the enjoyment and was a nice surprise. The bedroom was clean and spotless. Very nice. Staff were good and friendly and good ambassadors for Menzies . Breakfast was good, as were the evning meals. No complaints whatsoever.

Stayed here recently and really impressed with the general feel of the hotel as soon as you walk in. The staff were friendly, courteous and very helpful - not to be taken for granted and the downfall of many hotels! We had a fab sea view and on a day when it poured, shone, poured then shone the sunset was not to be missed! Great location, we had a lovely walk along the seafront and into town another day. Breakfast was plentiful, good quality and delicious - again, the staff were exemplary. Highly recommend!
