“great view, even better food”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

Meet an old friend here, we sat had tea and Sunday lunch while enjoying the fantastic view. The staff were friendly, and very helpful, but did not get in the way, just right. So having had a couple of cups of tea we decided to stay for Lunch, we had the fish cake's, which were to die for, the main (lamb) was cooked just right, with lovely fresh veg, just the way I like it, and to finish we had a lovely crumble.
The weather was lovely, the dog was with us on the terrace, he loved it to, so for a fab lunch, and great views, friendly and welcoming staff I would be more than happy to recommend The Cliff House

It can be windy at Barton, but this hotel is not windy, it has substance. Stayed just one night whilst visiting family. Was upgraded to a small double from a single and enjoyed the view. The room I had was crisp clean beach style, reminiscent of the local beach huts. I slept well and breakfast was good. I found all of the staff very helpful and friendly. Having lived in the area some time ago it was great to return to a well run hotel, that is the best value in the area. Try if you are in the are, even just for lunch. You will like it.

Spent all of Sunday afternoon sitting out on the terrace. Had their Sunday lunch menu - great tasting food, well cooked and great value for money. Service was excellent - efficient and friendly.
And the view and the setting are fabulous!
Well worth a visit.

We visited the Cliff House with my in laws for a casual lunch, and had a lovely couple of hours. The wine was delicious, and very reasonably priced. Other nice touches included warmed speciality breads brought whilst we were choosing, and the warmed frothy milk to go with the coffee and mints.
My main course of mushroom risotto was pleasant, but not memorable. However, the efficiency of the staff made up for any shortcomings, and I would definitely return!

I stayed at the Cliff House Hotel for 4 nights while working in New Milton, with me was my work colleagues. We have stayed in many places but we would all agree that this has been one of the top Hotels that we have stayed at. The staff were so nice and friendly (it was nice to be made to feel as people not contractors). The food well who ever the chef is he would give the top chefs on TV a real run for there money absolutely tasty and well cooked. The rooms were nice and homely, very clean and well maintained as is the rest of the hotel. The view in the morning is wonderful then down to a great breakfast. I enjoyed it so much myself and my wife will be going down on my motorbike in the summer.
All credit to the owners and staff and look forward to staying again.

Room Tip: You will not be disappointed no matter what room you have.

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.

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.
