Kingscliff Hotel

Our family friendly hotel with rooms to accommodate up to 5. The perfect base for a Highlands adventure with plenty to keep all ages entertained.


Your seaside sojourn starts here

Where the meadows and creeks of the Tendring Peninsula meet the sea, a hidden corner of Essex awaits – barely an hour from London but a million miles away. At its heart, the Kingscliff Hotel – a contemporary coastal hideaway loved by locals and cherished by travelers, who come for simple seaside pleasures where England’s climate is at its kindest. Just to the south lies Clacton-on-Sea – a playground for good, old-fashioned family fun. Just to the north, genteel Frinton, the quintessential English seaside resort.

Right on the prom, resplendent in powder blue, the Kingscliff is just the spot for taking in the sea air, tucking into the freshest of seafood, and simply stepping back to watch the world go by. A place to escape; a place to celebrate. Above all, a place to feel at home.
