Built in the 1930's this beautiful Hotel sits on the sea front at Holland on Sea, on the outskirts of the popular resort of on Clacton on Sea.

Its prime front line location on the beach means our guests enjoy unobstructed stunning sea views and can stroll along the promenade to take the sea air as they have been doing for the hotels 83 year history.

The Kingscliff is very proud of its reputation as one of the  leading hotels in the Clacton on Sea and indeed the Tendring area.




Dear Claire and Vanessa, Please say a BIG THANKYOU to you and your staff for all the hard work and effort. Our 6th Form Leavers party was a wonderful success and everybody enjoyed themselves.


Had a pleasant time in Kingscliff hotel, Clacton on sea, had a few beers with my mates never felt so welcome before, not only by the staff but also the manager Lloyd. I was thunderstruck by how welcomed he made us feel, he was generous and offering his service to bring us over drinks after he realised how lazy we were and done well with the situation. I would come back every weekend and recommend to friends. 9.5/10 - Ben Saunders


Claire, Vanessa

Thank you for organising the afternoon tea so well, we all had a fantastic afternoon. The teas, evening meals and breakfast were all very good, as indeed were the rooms. Very impressed.

Kind regards

Just completed a 3 night stay at the Kingscliff. An excellent hotel and stay! 
Plenty of secure free parking. The hotel overlooks the sea and is not too far from Clacton Pier.
Bedroom was spacious, clean and well decorated. Bed comfortable and bathroom also spacious and in superb condition. Dining room well -appointed and dinner menu was varied and food very good, indeed we ate there on two evenings. Breakfast had an good range of choice-( kippers were first rate.)
All staff we encountered in whatever capacity were superb- friendly. efficient, professional people.
I recommend this establishment without reservation.
