Information For The Cliff Hotel & Spa

Providing coastal luxury at this 76 bedroom hotel on the West Wales coast! Includes a Spa and separate Wedding Suite, delivering high quality service for a coastal wedding you will never forget!

Providing coastal luxury from start to finish it's a breath-taking place to make memories of a truly romantic wedding that last a lifetime. From dramatic stormy seas to still turquoise waters, we provide the setting for dolphins playing through the waves, seals bobbing in the bay and geese flying over-head, creating a picturesque scene for the most perfect moments to be captured. You can celebrate your whole day with us by also taking your vows here at the hotel. With two rooms licensed for civil ceremonies the choice is yours. Our Ballroom can be divided in two so that you may choose whether you would prefer the stunning open views from the left hand side, or, for a more intimate ceremony, the closed right hand side. Seating up to 160 guests there is plenty of room to accommodate large weddings. Our Ballroom lighting is on a dimmer so we can create the perfect atmosphere to compliment your wedding. We also include our PA system if you would like to create your own wedding music playlist. For a small, more personal wedding, we also have The Meeting Room, which can hold up to 150 guests. An enclosed private room creates an intimate ceremony to then leave your guests anticipating the spectacular sea views awaiting them at your reception. Every couple has their own idea of what they would like to eat on their special day and we look forward to helping you plan your perfect menu. With 76 bedrooms, we are well equipped to accommodate all (or at least the majority!) of your wedding guests. This is ideal if you have many guests travelling some distance to attend your wedding. From our standard rooms to stunning suites, guests are able to choose the type of room that suits them best. When you book your wedding with us, 20 bedrooms are automatically block-booked for your wedding night. A discount of 10% is available on a selection of these rooms (not the full 20). The Bride & Groom will have complimentary use of our Honeymoon Suite for the night of their wedding which features stunning views over to Cardigan Island and the Pembrokeshire coast. When it comes to your wedding day, no small detail should go overlooked. Bridal Make-Up can be tricky due to the need for a lasting flawless finish to ensure you look your very best on your wedding day. At The Cliff Hotel & Spa, our bespoke Bridal Make-Up service is provided by our experienced in-house professional Paige Taylor. Paige would love to work with you, taking into account your ideas and desires in order to create a beautiful, radiant and flawless make-up look. All guests staying at the hotel are offered complimentary use of our leisure facilities (booking necessary); perfect for unwinding in preparation for your wedding or to relax the morning afterwards. Once your ceremony is over and you're now married its time to celebrate. You will be guided up into our Island Bar, your own private room/bar to celebrate with your loved ones. If desired we will serve you and your guests canapes and an arrival drink of your choice. You'll have this magical time captured by your photographer; using our hotel grounds, from the front lawn overlooking the ocean, down on the beach or even within the hotel itself, there are plenty of idyllic places to capture those romantic moments. Our Ballroom walls will quite literally pull away to reveal your Wedding Breakfast to your guests from the Island Bar creating a magical 'wow' moment. As soon as you and your guests have found your seats we'll commence with serving your three course wedding breakfast of your choosing, followed by tea & coffee. Your champagne flutes will be filled again with a drink of your choosing to indicate the start of the speeches, our PA system with microphones will be provided. As the evening approaches the Ballroom will be rearranged to accommodate your entertainment and any extra evening guests. We will have organised your day in order to include all the traditions you may want, from the cutting of the cake, the bouquet toss, to your first dance, we're here to make sure nothing gets forgotten. At The Cliff Hotel & Spa, we recognise that each part of your wedding is unique, this is why we offer a great range of options for all aspects of your special day. We provide popular set wedding packages, however, our dedicated wedding team are always happy to arrange bespoke packages to suit each couple.

We cannot thank you enough...
We cannot thank you enough for all your help and support with our wedding reception. We absolutely loved every second of the day. Everything from the tables to the food and the service was outstanding. I have to mention Keith (head waiter) and how attentive and accommodating he was too. Checking in at every opportunity. Please thank him on our behalf.

We didn't know what to expect under the circumstances but we definitely had wedding vibes all day and everyone had an amazing time.

Thank you for everything, you made our day perfect and we honestly wouldn't change a thing. We just want to do it all again!

Amazing Venue!
If you are looking for a place to get married then the Cliff Hotel is the place for you! We got married at the Cliff Hotel (ceremony & reception) in April 2019 and everything was superb.

They have a fantastic wedding Coordinator called Louise who ensures that the day runs smoothly. I felt so relaxed on my Wedding day as Louise had run through everything with us in detail prior to our wedding so I knew that I didn't need to worry about anything!

The location and the views are fantastic! There aren't many places where you can get married overlooking the sea and then just step outside to have your photos taken at the edge of the Cliff or in one of the beautiful coves.

You have your own bar and terrace and if you get a nice day, and are able to sit outside on the terrace,it's like being abroad.

The staff were very professional and very helpful and the food was amazing. All our guests were so impressed with the canapes and the three course meal provided at the wedding reception. The beef melted in your mouth and my friends haven't stopped talking about the cheesecake!

They offer many different packages to suit different needs and, in my opinion, it's great value for money.

I cannot recommend this place highly enough. Thank you for a perfect wedding day!

We could not of dreamed of a more perfect day!
Myself and my husband got married at The Cliff Hotel & Spa on the 11th May this year and we could not of dreamed of a more perfect day!
The location is beyond beautiful with such stunning views, the ballroom with the hidden bar at the back and dedicated terrace provided us with everything we were looking for!
Laura our wedding coordinator was a true pleasure to work with, so professional and passionate about her role giving us plenty of ideas and options and helped us bring our wishes into reality. Laura had a room for everything to store the night before and set it all up the morning absolutely perfectly without us needing to think about it for a second!
The food was so so tasty and all the waiters and bar staff were professional and made sure the day ran so smoothly!
One lovely tall barman who stood outside the room as I waited to walk down the aisle, a nervous wreck... He handed me a pint of water held the straw for me as I drank it and kept telling me how beautiful I looked!
Finally a thanks to Paige my lovely makeup artist, I went to the Spa room that morning and she kept me so calm and at ease and gave me the perfect makeup look with little direction and both my mum and mother in law looked stunning with their makeup looks!
We couldn't recommend The Cliff Hotel & Spa more and will definitely be visiting for some cheeky weekends

Everything we dreamed of!
From start to finish, Louise was at hand with plenty of answers and solutions for everything.
We did everything ourselves from chair covers to arches and pedestals so probably more work than an average wedding where people from outside come in to do these things, but they accommodated us in every way. Allowing us extra time the day before and they even packed everything up so we just had to collect!
All the staff were amazing, but especially Louise!
We can’t thank them enough and we want to do it all over again.

Entire Planning was made so relaxed & enjoyable
The help and advice throughout the past 2 years has been irreplaceable, the entire planning was made so relaxed and enjoyable. The Hotel looked absolutely stunning on the day, with both ceremony & function rooms decor breathtaking. The day was coordinated so well, everything went like clockwork and allowed us to focus on enjoying such a wonderful but busy day. Everybody from bar to waiting staff were so helpful to us and our guests and simply could not do enough to help or accommodate. The friendliness and warmth we encountered was consistent right across all members of staff, it's a team to be proud of! It is a place that has become & always will be close to our hearts & we are already looking forward to returning to celebrate our Anniversary with a Sea View!
