About The Cliff House Hotel

The Cliff House Hotel offers breathtaking views over the Solent, comfortable accommodation, fine dining at The Bay Restaurant, and a warm and personal welcome from our friendly, experienced team. 

Our superb location gives easy access to the New Forest, picturesque Bournemouth, bustling Southampton, as well as Lymington and the Isle of Wight.

We take great pride in ensuring every single visitor is welcomed like an old friend, and the many customers who come back to us time and again are a testament to this. It is vitally important to us that all our guests enjoy the highest possible standards of food and accommodation, and experience truly outstanding service, whether you stay a week or just have a drink at the bar.

We offer two dining options at The Cliff House; our laid-back Sun Lounge with breath-taking views across the Solent,
and the beautifully decorated Bay Restaurant. We will be in the Sun Lounge!

All food served at the Cliff House is responsibly sourced, we plan very carefully to ensure all food is exceptionally fresh,
and purchase ingredients, wherever possible, from local growers and suppliers. We even forage many of our ingredients
from the Dorset coastline (Studland Bay is a particularly excellent foraging ground) and work hard to use these ingredients
to surprise, impress, and delight. We are passionate about producing good food and we want you to love our food too –
that’s why we go the extra mile to create truly excellent dishes.

Our terrace area is perfect for a balmy summer evening’s al fresco dining. After your meal, enjoy a drink by our outside
log fire and, on a clear night, spectacular views of the moonlit Solent, jumpers and cardigans recommended!
