Downcliffe House Hotel in Shock Closure

Filey, News   /   Tags: , ,

Rumours have been rife for some considerable time, but the news that the Downcliffe House Hotel is to close on 2 April has still come as a shock to many in Filey and beyond. The boutique hotel is set to be converted into private apartments.

Although the Downcliffe has been for sale for several years, its closure during a time when visitor numbers are booming in Filey has caught the majority by surprise. The Downcliffe was proud of its reputation as a boutique hotel and its restaurant was highly regarded.

The downfall of the Downcliffe leaves The White Lodge as the sole high-class hotel and restaurant in the town. There are apparently plans to open a boutique hotel and restaurant on Rutland Street, but at the time of writing there is no firm news on an opening date. At a time when many businesses are investing in the town, the closure of the Downcliffe feels like a retrograde step. It’s a real shame, as Filey needs to continue grow its upmarket attractions.

    I noticed the planning application posted outside a month ago. I agree it’s a great shame, also for the staff.

    What a shame as we loved the place. It was great to have a coffee on the terrace. What a great loss to Filey.
