Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

DESCRIPTION
Cliff Hall is an imposing detached Victorian property, originally constructed as a gentleman´s residence, which has been successfully run as a hotel for many many years. The present owners have undertaken considerable refurbishment and extension works and it currently offers 20 en-suite guest rooms catering for a maximum of 55 guests.
The property is superbly located on the Cliff-Top overlooking Shanklin beach and enjoys some panoramic views of Sandown Bay and the English Channel from the Easterly facing accommodation.

Many of the rooms have been recently refurbished and the majority of the property has uPVC frame double glazed windows and the majority of accommodation is warmed by gas fired central heating. Whilst the property has all modern amenities, it still retains much of the original charm and character of the Victorian building including the large hallway with cantilevered
staircase and gallery above.

The current owners have owned the business for 14 years and currently run it on a mainly B&B basis with a season that runs from the end of February until the end of October. The season normally starts with school parties up until the end of June/July and this is lucrative business is normally on a 5 day week only.

As can be seen from the hotel´s own website, it is rated as ´Excellent´ on TripAdvisor with a score of 4.5, has a 9.1 rating on Booking.com and also has a silver award from Visit England.

In our opinion the property is ready for continued operation and there is certainly scope for a new owner to extend the season including Christmas and New Year and the property would also be suitable for private functions including weddings. We would thoroughly recommend an inspection of the well presented accommodation which comprises:-
