Stayed here whilst on a business trip. The bedrooms and halls definitely in need of refurbishment although looks like the bathroom had been spruced up. So unusual to have blankets over a duvet. Furniture tired and the bedspread was in places marked. The same with the hall ways. This place has an amazing restaurant and the food was great. If...

Visited in August 2016; booked the Clifton Hotel as I wanted something nice for a weekend away with my wife, and booked what appeared to be a boutique-style hotel. How wrong could I have been. Everything I hate in poor hotels was present in the Clifton Hotel: difficult or non-existent parking; noisy location (there's an excellent late-bar in the basement...

Hi FungasUK, I am very disappointed to hear that you did not enjoy your stay wth us back in August. We have a large indoor carpark with many spaces, a rarity in Clifton, so I am surprised you found the parking a struggle. The reception team are always more than happy to help in this respect. We do have a...

I stayed solo for one night in November for a 'boys ( OK then, old mens ) reunion, so all that was required was a clean bedroom and bathroom - both fixed at a very reasonable price. Arrived by public transport so can't comment on the car parking arrangements. Reception staff very pleasant and welcoming. Room 12 on the ground...

I arrived at this hotel with some trepidation having read some truly awful recent reviews. I have to say, I was very pleasantly surprised by my experience. The hotel is excellent value for money. Very well placed for the University and Clifton village. I was in a top floor single room. It was small and a little tired, but spotlessly...

We had a lovely room, which had been recently renovated and was spotlessly clean - thank you Agnieszka, our room attendant! The modern bathroom was of a high standard.

Travelling by oneself can be not so much fun but I found that the Clifton Hotel made it a great experience. It's an older style place, and quaint in many ways, but it retains an older style sense of looking after its guests with courtesy and hospitality. This extends to offering complimentary fruit in the room on arrival, along with...
