The hotel sent out useful information and asked if a quiet room would be preferred, away from a function downstairs. I was on the top floor, and not disturbed at all. The staff at reception were helpful and polite.

My stay at The Clifton Hotel was excellent; I work at the University of Bristol, so I needed somewhere to stay nearby as I live in Liverpool (but I support Everton!), so I chose The Clifton Hotel - and it was a fantastic choice. The room was cosy with brilliant coffee, biscuits and fresh fruit, a comfy and warm bed...
