Winter Closure


Cliff House Hotel, the award winning boutique hotel, nestled in Southbourne, Bournemouth will close for an extended ‘winter’ period from Sunday 1st October 2017 re-opening on Monday 2nd April 2018

The extended winter closing has been a difficult decision to make for proprietor Andrew Gosling. Andrew explained,

“We have recently seen a large number of ‘extra’ hotel rooms opening within the Bournemouth/Southbourne area; the impact of AirBnB rooms has significantly risen; also having an impact on Cliff House. Winter is such a competitive market and it is vital that we remain true to our service ethos and style. For us to maintain this we feel it is justified for us to make this extended closure.”

Andrew opened the 14 bedroom hotel in May 2014, after an extensive renovation project, preserving many of the original period features, of the Victorian hotel whilst being styled with elegance and contemporary design to the highest detail. Within two years of opening its doors Cliff House Hotel had claimed many prestigious awards and titles including: Best Small Hotel – Bournemouth Tourism awards 2016, Best Loved Hotels Best Small Hotel 2016 Dorset Tourism Awards 2016 Bronze for Best Small/Boutique Hotel of the year 2016 , to name but a few.

If you have purchased a Gift Voucher for Afternoon Tea this can be redeemed up until Friday 29th September 2017 or upon reopening the hotel on Monday 2nd April 2018.
