1 night An absolutely fabulous hotel in every respect. The luxurious room with a balcony overlooking the bay would be hard to beat anywhere. Service was excellent. But then, it's what you'd expect at such premium prices… Special mention must go to the guy who parked the car and charged it for us overnight – classy.

Amazing hotel. Brilliant staff, food and views!
Our stay in the Cliff House was amazing. The staff couldn’t have been nicer from the moment we got out of the car to the time we were checking out. I must mention the restaurant staff in particular; hard working and well mannered young people who couldn’t have done enough for us both for our evening meal and our breakfast the following morning. The food was excellent for both meals. The room was clean, spacious and had a marvellous view over the water. Not even the miserable weather could spoil the view. The swimming pool was lovely and relaxing, with the outdoor jacuzzi being a special treat. We went twice during our one night stay. Our trip was topped off with a stroll on the stunning Cliff Walk. We’ve done the walk many times before but finally made the jump to stay in the hotel. All in all, a truly memorable trip. We will definitely be returning!
