Cliff House closes for the season on 1st October and reopens 2nd April

Tucked away on a quiet street in Southbourne, just ten minutes from the bustling centre of Bournemouth and only a five minute stroll from the beach, Cliff House Hotel occupies a lovely late Victorian building which was once a family home and then a boarding school. In 2014 a full renovation transformed Cliff House into an exemplary luxury boutique hotel where stylish contemporary design perfectly complements the period elegance and historic charm of the building.

The 14 light and airy bedrooms are an oasis of calm and comfort with each individually designed and decorated with bespoke furnishings.  Free Wi-Fi, Nespresso machines, Smart TV and tea and coffee making facilities come as standard, plus the Premium rooms also have bathrobes, trouser press, iron, ironing board and chocolates on arrival. Some of the ground rooms are also dog friendly.

The owner, Andrew Gosling, is the co-founder and Managing Director of Food Show, a prestigious event caterer. His expertise is evident, as Cliff House carefully sources high quality ingredients from the finest local suppliers. A wonderful selection of tapas and mezze/sharing boards, light bites and easy foods are served throughout the day in the chic Bar 13. The sophisticated cocktail list and excellent wine selection make it popular with guests and locals alike. We also recommend one of Cliff House’s famous Dorset afternoon teas served on the terrace in the summer months or in front of the roaring fire in the winter. At the back of the house there’s a lovely garden – the perfect place to while away a sunny afternoon. Exclusive use of Cliff House is also available for events such as weddings, birthdays, anniversaries and more. 

Southbourne is perfectly located for exploring the South Coasts best sights. The seaside promenade and Bournemouth’s famous seven miles of sandy beach is a short stroll away, and from there you can continue onwards towards Boscombe, Bournemouth and all the way to chic Sandbanks if you desire. The beauties of the Jurassic Coast and the New Forest are also just a short drive away. Manager Tim Seward’s knowledge of the local area is second to none, so don’t hesitate to ask for advice when choosing where to visit.
