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are the only ones in the hotel with a walk in shower as opposed to shower over the bath which, to us, seems rather outdated.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....

Hotel could use some modernisation, rooms are a little tired but staff are very friendly and helpful. Very close to the beach and close to town centre. Parking is very limited though, so arrive early if you want to get a space, alternatively if parking is available next door in the sister hotel you can park there, or on the...

Stayed here for one night as a last minute Christmas shopping break with my partner.
