With a party of about 100 for a weekend break. Only complaint was evening dinner very basic. Vegetarian options frankly terrible (dry ravioli). Whilst I do realise it most be challenging to cater for so many at a set price I was disappointed. Breakfast however was excellent. Amenities were very good and staff friendly and helpful.

Loved this hotel. We were on a 2 day Travelzoo deal. Prosecco arrived to our room as soon as we checked in. We made use of the pool and spa facilities on both days. Regulars to the pool made us feel welcome. Evening meal on the first night was fantastic. The few disappointments were...not being offered any drinks whether it...

We booked to stay at the Royal Clifton for a Friday and Saturday night, On arrival quite a few people had turned up at once so the moaning started straight away, really don't understand why people have no patience, we were about 20 down the line yet were still checked in within 20 minutes. The hotel itself, some people may...

This overnight stay was a free promotional offer that came with central heating cover. It was a free night in selected hotels, this being one of them. I booked it because of it's proximity to St. Helen's for a rugby match we were attending. I did pay for car parking and for breakfast next morning. The room was spacious and...

The service and staff in the restaurant were efficient and friendly. Our food was presented well and we enjoyed our meals. I thought that the reception area could do with some improvements, it would benefit from being more open. All staff we met were polite and helpful, and we found the hotel to be very welcoming. We would definitely return...

The hotel is situated on the seafront near the pier and it's in an excellent location for walking into the town centre too. Our lovely comfortable room was No.123. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food in the restaurant was good and the menu varied. Plenty of choice at breakfast too. The Spa facilities were a real bonus so...

It happens to me to spend some days in this hotel every now and then. Recently I have noticed a lower level of quality in some services , for example the quality of the breakfast ( no more fresh fruit, etc.) . Hope this problem is just temporary.

Went here apprehensive after reading other reviews. Found the negative reviews unfounded. This is a lovely hotel, excellent service, fantastic food and helpful friendly staff. Wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. If you are thinking about going here, go, it really is an excellent hotel
