Have just spent four nights at the stunning Cliffemount hotel. The weather was glorious, and the views from my room were outstanding in the sunshine. Once again the food, service, welcome and warmth are the best I have encountered on my travels especially in this country. I ate every evening in the restaurant as I was keen to sample as...

after having a weekend here for our wedding anniversary we were very disappointed. Our room called roxby was next to the heating boiler which came on at regular intervals, the room above us, their sanitary pipes were in the corner of our room, so when the toilet was flushed and the shower was used, the noise of the water was...

We travelled up from Wakefield, arriving mid morning and called into the Cliffemount hotel hoping for a late breakfast and was warmly received. Lovely table with terrific views over the bay. Had the best poached eggs on toast, fresh tasting with bright yellow yokes, a fantastic start to our holiday.

We have just had a lovely relaxing stay at Cliffemount. Perfect to do as little or as much as you want. Amazing views and walks with local towns only a short drive away. We were given a very warm welcome and the room was lovely with everything we wanted. The restaurant is certainly worth a visit, the menu is excellent...

We booked this through Groupon and it was a really pleasant surprise both in location and accommodation. The room had a fantastic view over the bay and despite the January weather the changing scenery from sunrise to sunset was spectacular. The restaurant has equally good views and the food was very good for both breakfast and dinner, the chef is...

We booked this hotel through Groupon on the recommendation of friends. We were not disappointed. Sitting as the name suggests on the top of a cliff, it overlooks the beautiful Runswick Bay.

We stayed for one night only, as we were on a business trip, but the welcoming atmosphere of this small boutique hotel immediately made us feel as chilled and comfortable as would a holiday break. On arrival, we were delighted to discover an upgrade to a room with a balcony overlooking the bay, further enhanced by luxurious little touches such...
