Suncliff Hotel

My experience booking with the Suncliff was a painful one.

Being a mixed group I was informed that no group 'bond' was needed. It was all stated on their website it was only for single sex groups. This was clearly in place to put Stag and Hen groups off from booking. I was phoned 4 times by the hotel to confirm it was a mixed group so I would have an issue. Then 2 days before my stay I was contacted by the hotel and told I would have to have the 'bond' of £100 per person my group was 11 people, so that gave me 2 days to find £1100. I spoke to the reservation manager who was very unhelpful about this and his attitude was basically 'oh well, you need the bond' when question he said he had just changed the website, only 3 months after I had already booked. Not impressed at all!. One of the rooms was facing the sea and was a great room. Only issue was it was advertised as a family room of 2 singles and a double bed. In fact it was 1 single and a double with a forth bed just wheeled into the room. The second room was facing the other side, and was so hot it was unbareable. No fan or air conditioning in the room, was facing a built up part of hotel so no wind to come into room either.

Great Hotel

Really liked the large double en-suite room.

It was lovely and clean and the bed was really comfortable. There is ample parking onsite, and as the sister hotel is next door, there are a wide range of facilities on offer. The pool was warm and clean. We ate at the restaurant one evening and the staff were brilliant. Their attention to detail was great whilst not being intrusive. The breakfast was also good every morning with plenty of options and fresh tea and coffee delivered to your table.

Great value for what I paid

I got two single rooms on the early may bank holiday weekend for £29 each b&b Superb location for the sea front free parking on site get there early though but you can park at their sister hotels next door rooms are basic but for the price I done very well and got more for my money than more expensive hotels I've stayed at there was even entertainment in the evening

Helpful staff

we stayed at this hotel on a late booking.

I was unable to make my original date but the staff changed it to the day before without any problems. On arrival, the heater in the room would not turn off and was far too hot. The reception staff were extremely helpful, offering several rooms as a replacement of differing sizes and locations for nom extra. Room finally found 104, very spacious. One extra bed moved into the room by staff. Music in the bar could be heard but TV just managed to drown most of this out. Unfortunately didn't get to use the facilities during our stay. Breakfast was plentiful and good assortment of food. Staff apologised in the morning for inconvenience caused too. All very helpful.
