The Hotel is actually a care home run by a Charity who do great work for visually impaired people. This means that there are loads of dogs around (of course) and many residents on short breaks who need real care and attention. We were not aware of this when we booked. The food is mediocre and the room we had, which was a good size, was also by the lift doors that banged whenever shutting. if you now this is the nature of the hotel, enjoy dogs, and are happy to accept a compromised hotel experience, then this is fine. It is in a great position and was clearly once a luxury hotel. Many years ago.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Cliffden Hotel was built as a private House in 1815 for Sir John Strachan on 35 acres of grounds adjacent to the Dawlish Road. The original gardens were built in the Regency style gardens, with smooth lawns, shrubberies and trelliswork and wall-plants against the lower storey of the house. In 1988, the then current owner Dr Mules retired, he put Cliffden House up for sale with the understanding that it would be used for "greater good". The House was purchased by Guide Dogs for the blind and converted to a hotel which offer accommodation to both blind, sighted and partially sighted guests. The hotel now sits in 7 acres of landscaped gardens, and a short walk through these private grounds brings you to the glorious seafront at Teignmouth. ... more less
