The location speaks for itself - truly fabulous! - but we loved everything about the Cliff House. The friendly welcome, the relaxed modern decor, the far-from-run-of-the-mill mulled wine on a freezing day, the food.... We were there for a family birthday and we will definitely be back to stay. Can't wait to spend a summer's evening on the cliff-top terrace... More

We loved the Cliff House! We were visiting friends a few weeks ago and came across them and were not disappointed. Great location on the beach and staff were really friendly and helpful. Great food and a real family feel to the business. Would definitely stay again and recommend.

Loved this hotel which was right on the beach. Unfortunately we stayed Sunday and the restaurant is closed on a Sunday evening. However this did not stop us enjoying ourselves. The owners were amazing and really helpful. We were allowed to take our dog which was really appreciated. Couldn't recommend highly enough. Excellent thank you.

Another lovely stay at the Cliff House, this time being able to take advantage of sunny weather in October! What a wonderful place to sit outside with one (or two) of the Cliff House's famous gin and tonics, and a cosy blanket, enjoying the ever-changing view and the sea air. Our bedroom was very comfortable and breakfast was a joy... More

A group of 11 of us took over all seven bedrooms of The Cliff House for a weekend and had a great time. We used the restaurant on one of our evenings; it's obvious the bar and restaurant are a popular local amenity and this gave the place a real buzz. Our meal was excellent and I appreciated they had... More

I can not find Words enough to say how much I enjoyed the time spent here! The position (right on the clifftop, looking out to sea)was wonderful and we made full use of the patio area. The breakfasts were great(especially the kedgeree) and nothing was too much trouble. When we arrived we were made very welcome , and after settling... More

We stayed for one night at The Cliff House - a fresh breath of air on a rather tired, 'elderly' part of the coastline. Relaxed surfy interiors, lovely staff, amazing views - a lot of effort has been made to ensure all visitors have a relaxing stay..The food was great too. Only one criticism, we had a room at the...

Just a single night. It's a wonderful location, with great views of the Isle of Wight from the garden, and the decor and general style of the hotel is nice, as was the breakfast. However, staffing seems a bit hit and miss, I waited a long time to check in. Also, there is a gentleman, I guess the owner, who... More
