Historical Traveller Reviews of Cliffeside Hotel
Very nice stayfrom jackojoy
Lovely short breakfrom LoJo61
Celebrating our Silver Wedding Anniversary, we had 3 lovely days at a very reasonable price. When we arrived we were a bit disappointed with the room we were initially given so decided to go and see the Receptionist, she was very pleasant, approachable and apologised. She offered us a choice of 2 other rooms to view and we swapped for a lovely bright room with large windows to the front and side. The room was very clean, tidy and well equipped. The food was fab, we were delighted with the variety at breakfast, the dining room was very clean and spaced out well. We found all the staff there very polite and curteous. The hotel free parking was easy and accessible during our stay. Thanks.

Comfortable at the Cliffesidefrom jharman
Accomodation very disappointingfrom UK40something
bottom and this had definitely not come from me!!
We were with a group of people - others were disappointed and changed rooms but we were not so lucky as nowhere for us to move to by the time we arrived. We were not the only ones with brown water - took photos and felt tempted to complain but frankly couldn't be bothered. The only positive thing to say about this hotel was the appearance of the restaurant which had recently been refurbished. But were disappointed that they ran out of the wine we were drinking after we had ordered the first bottle and some of the food we ordered was wrong. The food quality was basic but not worth the price tag. Breakfast was ok but didn't appreciate being reprimanded by the waiter for serving myself from what looked like a buffet but was actually not, although there were no serving staff around when I went up to get food. This place could really do so much better.
It is always disappointing to read negative customer reviews, especially when the customer has not reported faults or ‘took photos and felt tempted to complain but frankly couldn't be bothered.’ Taken from review by UK40something. This gives the hotel management no chance to rectify any problems that arise.
I would like to the opportunity to welcome you back to the hotel and if you contact me personally I can arrange a special offer.
GOD VALUEfrom tripboy1
The food was out of this world rooms were good staff were excerlent its nice to see smaller holets still have that personal touch compeared to the big ones.
Some reviews are a little unfairfrom gellybelly
I booked through Last Minute .com and got a very good deal for our 2 night bed and breakfast stay, then I looked on the reviews and was dreading what we would find on arrival, I imagined it to be like Fawlty Towers!.
However the staff are very nice and helpful, and our room had obviously undergone recent renovation, the bathroom was tiled in loverly natural stone coloured tiles and the bathroom suite looked brand new.
The room.. though not ultra modern was clean and bright with thick curtains to the floor, the bedding was the whitest I ever seen in a hotel (and we have travelled all over the world).
My only gripe was that the bed was very hard and the rooms do get very hot but that might be a bonus for some.
The breakfast was tasty and very hot and my partner was desperate to get a copy of the music played during breakfast ,
however t it was a compilation produced by the Manager! he has good taste...
I agree that the decor in the corridors is a little dark and dated but who hangs around in hotel corridors on holiday? Bournemouth is a great place in itself and a good starting point to visit other nearby towns of interest ,
We will definately go back and we thought we got good value for what we paid.
Loved the Cliffesidefrom maxynew
I have to say what good value it was for £30 a night each. Dinner in particular was excellent and very friendly staff. Reception upgraded us to a lovely seaview room as it was my wife's birthday and we finished our break with a lovely walk to Sandbanks along the seafront.
Definitely worth a return visit.
Avoid this hotel!from n_star_74
Pay more it will be worth itfrom Breeza
The bedroom was ok the bathroom was newly done and very smart however the pull switch in there was hanging off the ceiling with bare wires exposed i reported it but it wasnt fixed during our stay.The beds were old and the bedding needs updating. It was fairly clean but smelt musty.
On the plus side the receptionists were all very helpful the restaraunt manager and his staff couldnt do enough for us. They need more staff to work the bar as the receptionists were doing a lot of the bar work. I would say if you can afford a little bit more go somewhere else if not be prepared for lots of stair climbing and if you are claustrophobic you have no chance of getting in the lift.
