Nice property and nice location a little away from the buzz of the city. Peace and Tranquility are the prime attraction.

Stayed for a few nights, and had 2 rooms [Verona and Tempest] - both the rooms are very close to the dining area and incredibly noisy. Tempest is a huge room, with a seating area and big bathroom. Verona however is a small room with no windows or natural light. Grounds are beautiful and you're far away from the hustle...

On visiting kings cliff again after 2 years, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the place has retained its charm. The retro live music, the fireplace, the glasshouse and the story behind the place , all augment to making the dining a wonderful experience. though I found the rooms to be a little suffocating,the restaurant is brilliant!
