The food was buffet style and again, really nice...the staff are friendly and helpful. We had to pay for the part £12 but... More

Out dated, worn out and tired looking hotel. The room we stayed in was dirty and bathroom with rusty fittings, mattress was hard and uncomfortable and the heating was way too hot with a window that only opened slightly. We stayed on first floor and in corridor seemed to be where staff would sit to have their breaks. We definitely... More

I've been staying at the Clifton for over 18 years. Had a really nice time, the room was very clean, the breakfast very good and the staff are really helpful and friendly. Very nice location and I will be staying there again.

We love the east coast of the UK, there's nothing better than the sea air, so when we get the chance to stay over we do. This time we chose the Clifton Hotel. The room was clean once you got past the blood on the wall!, but the bathroom was something else! It was clean but needed some revamping into... More

This is a large hotel in an amazing location. If it was refurbished it would be absolutely fantastic. Currently however it is very shabby and dated. Very slow wifi and "interesting" decor in the rooms. Creaky beds, the worlds oldest lift and peeling paint. We opted for a room only tariff and walked down to the watermark cafe every morning...
