“A Christmas Celebration”
Reviewed 23 December 2013 via mobile

Had an extremely good celebration with friends and very much enjoyed my visit to the Cliff House. The meal was excellent with great service and everyone really enjoyed the meal. Even though it was pouring with rain and blowing a gale outside there was a very warm and welcoming atmosphere in side.

Stayed December 2013, travelled with friends

We stayed here for a weekend as a get away from a very stressful working week. Our room had fantastic sea views and was very comfortable although the bathroom was quite tight. We ate dinner in the restaurant and had a great meal. The hake was fantastic, very tasty and beautifully cooked. The staff were very friendly and helpful, when I mentioned a problem with the sink in the bathroom they came and dealt with it straight away. We will definitely stay again.

I stayed 2 nights in the single room whilst attending a family wedding nearby and it was ideal. The owners are particularly friendly and welcoming and all the rest of the staff go out of their way to be attentive without being intrusive - an excellent combination. The breakfast (served in the indoor dining terrace with probably the best views you will find anywhere over the sea towards the Isle of Wight) was great, with cooked items to order if you wanted - poached eggs were perfect! The room was absolutely fine for a single person and had a good powerful shower in the en-suite - a nice change from so many private hotels. As part of the pre-wedding celebrations some family members came for a light lunch in the restaurant and this again was excellent - well prepared and presented, and good value. Certainly a great place to stay if you want the personal touch rather than the anonymity of a large hotel.

We attended a wedding in Christchurch and left it a little late booking somewhere to stay. In the end we were rather grateful that other places were booked up. We went for a smaller room without a sea view as we would be out at the wedding all day. Even so the room was modern and clean and very comfortable with a lovely bathroom. All of the staff were friendly and welcoming and we enjoyed a peaceful and relaxing stay. The breakfast served in the sun lounge with stunning views across to the Isle of Wight was absolutely delicious. We would certainly go back.

if you're offered the twin room behind reception, say no! the noise from reception and hall does not offer any chance to sleep. when the room above you is occupied it can be compared to a herd of elephants playing tag! the room was damp and the musty smell pungent to say the least. we paid over £100 for the privilege!
at breakfast the lady serving seemed in different and turse. the only redeeming element was the breakfast.
