A group of 16 ladies stayed here at the start of April. Upon arrival to the hotel it was clean and modern looking, we had all paid up front for our rooms but when filling out our room paperwork we were told that each of us was to pay £100 deposit that's per person! All down to the fact that...

We stayed for two nights in a room with a sea view and balcony. The room was clean and very comfortable, although it does need some updating. The balcony was lovely to sit outside with a drink and take in the stunning views. We enjoyed all the meals we had here and was particularly impressed with the range of gluten...

After having no room at the original hotel we booked we were sent to the Suncliff. We were not disappointed. Staff were friendly, room clean and good breakfast. We were going to the BIC and it was a nice walk down to it. We will definitely stay here again and next time make use of the spa and pool.

We stayed one night in a budget room which was clean and met our needs.Making a reservation was straightforward and our questions were answered.

Breakfast was very enjoyable and we particularly liked the help yourself service. The waitress...

The hotel is in a great location, and perfect for anyone that wants to only be a ten minute walk from the beach. The hotel does also offer some great views if you're willing to pay extra. We booked the room on a deal which cost £35 for the night. It was a small, but perfectly adequate room for the...

The hotel was different to our hotels back in South Africa. Our room was a bit small, old fashioned furniture so not too sure of their other rooms. But it was comfortable. They have a swimming pool, gym and recreation area which is really nice. It is conveniently located a few metres from the beach. I enjoyed it a lot.
