As always our stay in The Cliff was so restful. A total switch off from the outside world. Staff were most hrlpful and friendly, particularly in these difficult times. Looking forward to the next visit.

The view from all areas of hotel is spectacular. The hotel itself is sparkling clean. The staff are welcoming and friendly and waiter service in restaurant and bar are very attentive. Food is excellent. We didn’t have an opportunity to use pool /spa area but we went down to look at it and it looks really well kept and sparkling clean. Bedroom facilities are top notch for comfort and style. Extra touches for generous coffee pods and chocolate bars on the house. Highly recommend this hotel.

Above all the staff. Friendly and helpful and they couldn't do enough for you. Food was outstanding and the views weren'd half bad either!
