2009 Award Winners NEWCOMER OF THE YEAR 2009


Cliff House Hotel


Clinging to steep cliffs on the edge of the heritage village of Ardmore, this hotel opened to some acclaim a few months ago and, with its fresh contemporary style, ambitious cooking and emphasis on professional and genuinely caring service, it has brought a new focus to an area of outstanding hospitality and unspoilt natural beauty which has somehow remained a well kept secret until now.

On the edge of the pretty village (which has much to recommend it including a round tower, good restaurants, a lovely sandy beach, excellent walking and a good local pottery), this striking hotel is in a beautiful location overlooking the sea – many will fondly remember old-fashioned afternoon teas on the terrace in its former guise - and, despite its dramatic design, the sea remains the star.

And, with Head Chef Martijn Kajuiter’s exciting food and good old-fashioned hands-on management from General Manager Adriaan Bartels as well as the charm of the location, this promises to be a place that will make a lot of friends – for both the hotel and the area.
