The Cliff Spa

Unless otherwise stated, all hotel stays include use of our spa facilities; these may be used between 15:00 on your day of arrival and 10:30 on your day of departure. The Cliff Spa is open between 08:00 and 20:00 Sunday – Thursday and 08:00 – 21:00 on Friday and Saturday. Should you wish to use these facilities during your stay we strongly recommend advance booking for both treatments and spa use prior to arrival. We are committed to maintaining the tranquil ambience of the spa and, as we have a limited capacity, we are unable to guarantee availability, especially during busy times and reserve the right to turn away hotel residents, as well as day guests, should the spa become full. No refunds or discounts will be given should guests be unable to use the spa due to failure to book in advance or failure to utilise the facilities during their stay.

Please be aware that opening hours are limited for children aged under 16 to 8:00 – 10:00 Monday – Saturday and 8:00 – 10:30 on Sundays and must be supervised by a minimum of 1 adult to every 2 children.

There are also many treatments available with our spa therapists at an extra cost. To avoid any disappointment, booking for treatments is essential, especially at weekends. A full list of treatments can be found on our website or contact the spa via email spa@cliffhotel.com.

At The Cliff Hotel & Spa we allow pets in a limited number of our bedrooms. This is subject to availability and prior approval by the hotel and, unfortunately, we are unable to provide special consideration for guests who arrive at the hotel with their pet without prior arrangement. There is also an additional charge for this. Please be aware that, although pets are tolerated in our bedrooms, they are not permitted in the public areas of the hotel including the restaurant and bar or our golf course. We also ask that all dogs are kept on a lead at all times within the hotel and its grounds. Please be aware that, should you leave your pet unattended in your bedroom, your room may not be serviced.

At The Cliff Hotel we have a 9 hole golf course available to residents and non-residents. Day charges apply for use of this and score cards are available at reception. We are also able to offer discounted rates at Cardigan Golf Club for hotel residents. Please contact Cardigan Golf Club for details of this and to book tee times.

The Cliff Spa

To make the most of your day we suggest that you arrive at least 30 minutes before your treatment time to give you time to relax and to fill in our health questionnaire. Arriving late may potentially cause your treatment to be shortened and will still be charged the same price.

What to bring and what to wear
Swimwear is mandatory in all poolside facilities and spa area. If your swimwear is dry then you can wear swimwear during treatments. If not, dry disposable underwear is provided or you can change back into your own underwear.  During some of the treatments disposable underwear must be worn. We suggest that you leave all jewellery and valuables either at home, your hotel room or in a locker as you will be asked to remove these before treatments.

Changing facilities
No outdoor footwear can be worn in our spa area. Our spa gender is neutral, there are no separate male and female areas. We do however have dedicated male and female changing rooms. There are lockers to store your clothes and personal belongings. However, The Cliff Hotel & Spa will not accept responsibility for the safety of belongings, whether placed in a locker or not.

Please respect fellow guests and the serenity of our Spa by refraining from talking loudly or

shouting while in the Spa. Mobile phones and cameras are not permitted in the spa. CCTV is in

operation in certain public areas of the spa.

We advise you to book well in advance to avoid disappointment. In order to secure the booking, we do require a deposit. All bookings are subject to availability and all appointments allow time for changing before and after the treatment. Our treatments are only available for persons aged 16 and above. We are unable to allow larger groups into the spa without any treatments.

Payments & Cancellations

Upon booking, a non refundable deposit amounting to the full cost of the treatments or packages booked will be taken. We are unable to make a booking or reserve days or times without this prepayment. Should you be required to cancel for any reason at any point between the time of booking and 24 hours prior to the start time of your treatments, The Cliff Spa will transfer the value of your deposit to a future booking within the next 6 months.
