In 2016 and as in the last 3 previous years we have received an award for excellence from Trip Advisor and awards for excellence from Booking.com. Our rooms have been previously awarded a level1 mobility. Enabling us to offer some bedrooms for less able guests. The Cliffhall has undertaken a major refurbishment and we are pleased to advise that it was regraded as a 3 star silver guest accommodation in 2015.
The location of the Cliffhall enables it to offer unrivalled sea views and a central base to explore the Island.
We have two superior sea view ground floor rooms available with their own sun terrace. One of these rooms can be wheelchair friendly and both can be booked as a twin or a double. Also new we have two sea view rooms with Juliette balconies.
The Cliff Hall is surrounded by a variety of restaurants/pubs and cafes and therefore offers bed and breakfast only except in September (between 29th to the 4th September only) Where a half board option can be booked directly with us. Lunches available throughout the summer.
A level 1 mobility award indicates that the Cliff Hall has some bedrooms that have been graded officially, as suitable for older and less mobile guests. These are spacious rooms that can easily accommodate a wheelchair and have extra grab rails and removable seating in the showers.
The Cliff Hall boasts some of the best sea-views of the Island. Superbly situated on the cliffs above Shanklin beach and esplanade. A 4 minute walk to Shanklin High Street, leading to Shanklin Old Village. The hotel, built in Victorian times, has many original features, including ceilings copied from Osborne House. The public areas are elegant and spacious, designed for comfort. There is a conservatory offering panoramic sea views and a seating aree outside offering sun and panoramic sea views. Alsoavailable is a secluded sun terrace. For entertainment there is a bar and conservatory with games cupboard and table tennis, giant jenga and connect 4. Some live evening entertainment plus a weekly quiz night is available in high season only.
Great savings and genuine trade rates are offered on all ferry routes throughout the year.
All bedrooms are en-suite and many offer lovely sea views. Every room has a colour digital TV, tea and coffee making facilities and heating. Some of our sea view doubles/ twins are ground floor with sun terrace. These offer more space and separate seating areas, whilst others are upstairs offer better sea views. All our double /twin and family rooms have at least a king size bed and three of our single rooms have standard double beds in them. Generally our rooms are very spacious. Some rooms accommodate sofa beds, which can be used as seating or a child's bed.
