I have been organizing a social weekend for a large group of friends & family at this hotel for the last 11 years and am already looking forward to continuing into the future. In the last couple of years the ownership of this hotel has changed, but in their wisdom they have left the existing management in place ensuring that...

This hotel is coming on steadily and slowly improving and renovating as the years go by. I first came to the Suncliff about nine years ago and whilst it was OK, the decor was a bit tired throughout and it needed some TLC, carpets, new furniture and lots of paint. About five years ago it commenced a systematic re-vamp starting...

From the moment we arrived until the moment we left the staff were friendly and efficient.The food was fine and well cooked,but the choice would be a bit limited for a longer stay.We enjoyed the entertainment in the lounge.

Staff friendly, food good. Paid extra for sea view and with a large bay window, this was well worth it. Only drawback was lack of illumination near tea-making facilities but have pointed this out to hotel. This was only a 2 night stay but will return in the future.

Staff brilliant, all of them. Really friendly and helpful. Thank you. Stayed in the Beatrice room but would have preferred the William room, had it been available. Breakfast excellent. Chose an all in package, but next time will do room and al a carte. Only 1 small lift to the 4th floor, but no problems.

We spent 4 nights at the Suncliffe, having been upgraded to a top floor ocean view room as these rooms apparently are the only ones in the hotel with a walk in shower as opposed to shower over the bath which, to us, seems rather outdated. We had half board, the breakfasts were ok apart from the rubber eggs! The...

The staff were lovely, the facilities included in the room cost are plenty (pool, gym, evening entertainment to name a few), the food is good value and quality, the location couldn't be better - right on the sea front with incredible views - and the price per room is so reasonable. Nothing bad to say about this place at all....
