Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

We spent a very uncomfotable night in a room that was on the third floor (many stairs)and found the mattresses extremely uncomfortable. It was impossible to find a spot on any part of the mattress that you could actually lie on without it being quite painful (springs poking through).The beds should be replaced immediately and no one should have to...

Again work extends to a new deadline i had to find a new hotel. I was told about this one by a local villiger who had not visited the establishment yet, but heard good reviews. Booked it and found on entry quite welcoming. The young gentleman behind the counter and bar is training and can see he is trying to...

We have now been to the Highcliffe Hotel twice for Sunday lunch. The food was excellent. and the service was extremely friendly and efficient. Considering that Tracey and Lynn only took over in July, they have done an excellent job and we are confident that it will go from strength to strength. Anyone in the area should try and visit...

Just returned from a Sunday lunch at the Highcliffe. Food was excellent. The best spiced apple crumble I've had in a long time. The refurbishment is coming on a treat and we were made to feel very welcome. Well done to the new owners and their staff 😀

We knew from reviews that Tracey and the team had only taken it over in July, so we were not sure what to expect. We stayed 3 nights and we were made to feel very welcome - nothing was too much trouble. It was nicely comfortable and they are working steadily at the decor and refurbishing. The restaurant is now...

Stayed here for one Sunday night last month while on a motorcycle trip. It was pretty quiet the night I was there. The new owners had only taken over a few days before and have great plans for the hotel. It is a great building in a great location that seems to have been starved of money by the previous...

We stayed at the highcliffe hotel just last night. When we arrived we were greeted by a lovely lady who showed us to our room. The room was welcoming and comfortable. The beds in particular were very comfy and we had a lovely night sleep. I ordered steak and chips from their restaurant which tasted lovely and the steak was...

The highcliffe hotel has recently come under new management (6 weeks ago, according to the owner). Who has plans to bring the hotel into the 21st century, and it needs it. The decor needs updating. Beds where clean and the food was amazing. The hotel is in a great location, beautiful village. I look forward to going back to see...
