              The hotel is one of the best that I have ever been to

              They don,t have wi fi wich was very bad thing in the 21st century. The matresses are so cheap

            • Family with children
              5.0

              Location was nice

              This hotel had the worst beds that I have ever encountered. I do not expect to feel the bedsprings digging into me everytime I roll over.

            • Group of friends
              7.4

              The hotel has a welcoming atmosphere with friendly staff, plenty of parking and a good location. Although the decor is slightly dates the facilities were good and the hotel represented excellent value.

              The hotel was host to Turkey and Tinsel during the week attracting older coach parties, in general the hotel did feel a little dates and whilst very pleasant parts of it are showing wear and will need modernising in the next few years. Unfortunately the sauna was not working when I visited.

              All the staff were very approachable and I was made very welcome. Room was comfortable and clean. It was a shame I arrived late and left early so I didn't gett a chance to try out any of the hotels facilities, mabye next time.

              I attended a conference. Staff at the Suncliff were extremely helpful and friendly. A very good atmosphere within the hotel. The location is just brilliant, 5 minutes from town, BIC and beach. Room was of a good standard with new decor and very clean. Plenty of parking back and front of hotel

              The hotel indoor pool.

              We were disappointed to find that most of the guests were "coach tour "passengers! This caused congestion in the dining room at breakfast time and we felt that they were given priority as they had to adhere to a time schedule.Also, our bathroom door would not close as the handle had no lock! The reception staff could have been more informative regarding the indoor pool. We were not told that a mother and baby class was booked every Wednesday morning!

            • Single
              4.6

              The evening duty staff were very helpful

              The room was filthy, it smelled of damp, there was a large hole in the side of the bathroom wall, the walls were thin and you could hear other guests and doors slam etc, the TV did not work
