“does what it says on the tin”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2012

I was met at reception by a rather brusque northern girl, who more or less barked her orders at me to fill in the register which was rather off putting before i got any further!

the wood chip walls do rather date this place and when i got to my room i found they had 'upgraded' me to a double room which was a nice surprise as i had only been able to book a single room on-line.

i have to say that although the room was very dated, it was spotless.
the tv was of the old fashioned type which had a free view box plugged into which is fair enough but the free view box had a remote control whereas unfortunately the tv it self didnt. So just at that point when you are falling asleep and want to zap it off, you had to crawl out of bed to turn the tv off with a button!
lets face it though, that's no big deal just unexpected in this day and age.

the bathroom really let this place down though for me.
a big pink corner bath, bidet, toilet and sink. very dated with the public loo type floor tiles. not very nice. the bath had a Jacuzzi feature which i wouldn't use even in the most expensive hotels. No shower!! even if i would have used the bath, i didn't have time to use one - i was rushing to get out so i had to forego a proper wash and just wash at the sink.

having said all that, there was plenty of hot water & clean towels.

it sounds like from the other reviews posted that they are refurbishing some rooms so maybe i was just unlucky and got a room they hadn't done yet (room 2)

breakfast was nice but the same gruff girl that met me on reception was hiding in the kitchen and politely told me off when i had to go to the kitchen to find someone to take my order

would i stay again?? probably not out of choice but i wouldn't totally rule it out if i couldn't get a more modern place to stay.

Room Tip: i stayed in room 2 which was on the ground floor through the restaurant. even though it was on the m...

When unable to book in at our regular B & B in High Wycombe, inspite of a couple of negative reports of situations that can happen in any hotel, we booked in at `Clifton Lodge`.
We were not disappointed, our room consisted of lovely new oak furniture, the bed was very clean and comfortable which was a relief as my wife has servere back problems with spotless freshly laundered white bedding. Although the easy chair had been spoilt by a spillage stain.
The Power shower cubicle was spotless and a luxury to enjoy.
A full breakfast enjoyed in the conservatory was superb and well cooked, the bacon the best i`ve tasted for a long time.
Our Host was attentive and gave us a cheerful start to the day inspite of the wet and gloomy atmoshere with the weather.
Would we return Yes ! Without doubt. Thankyou again for our stay and wonderful Breakfast.

The only down side was, that had we required it, there was only a single wardrobe, but to have fitted a double would have spoiled the feeling of space in the room.

Room Tip: Although the buiding is set well back of the main road this room being at the front did pick up a li...

From the outside we thought it looked a little dated but once through the door, the staff were efficient and gave prompt attention. The room (number 22) was on the first floor and looked as if it had been recently refurbished. It was spotless, the bed comfortable, great bathroom, lovely shower. Absolutely no complaints. I am a very bad sleeper at the best of times but slept really well. Breakfast was delicious. Excellent value. Stayed 1 night as my son was in the Henley triathlon.

A good value hotel. The food was excellent and good portions. The rooms are quite small but ok for the odd night stop over, although they are badly in need of updating especially the bathroom, which was a bit grim. A struggle to get your luggage through the labrynth of extremely narrow corridors upstairs. A bar is advertised, but is little more than a counter with a sparse selection of bottled drinks in a fridge behind it. They did not even have quite enough pint glasses to go around. In summary, cheap, and the food is good. You get what you pay for. If you want a decent drink, there is a pub down the road.

We arrived at the hotel, and stayed for one night, due to my son and I attending a football game in London. We were expected a quick place to sleep in for a night, but were delighted with the room. We stayed in Room 1A which is a nice, small room with a double bed and a tv with Freeview. The shower - Great! The room had wardrobes, draws, lamps, lights, mirrors tv, sink, tea & coffee facilities. We did have a little trouble getting to sleep even though the bed was comfy due to the next door neighbours going in and out at 1am, and the banging of doors. But would recommend for a nice place to stay.

I stayed here recently in a single room for a week and although it was not overly spacious it was extremely clean; well laid out with a generous en-suite bathroom. And abnormally there was decent shower pressure: not bad considering I was on the second floor.

The staff were very courteous and helpful. I ate in the restaurant all week as the food was excellent value for money:the Dining area is convivial. Overall, excellent value for money and if you are on a budget I do not think you will find much better.

Ps. Very large car park for those of us condemned to drive big vans.

Room Tip: Top rooms (30-34) have very narrow staircases. Small cases are helpful!

I spent a four-day weekend at the Clifton Lodge Hotel while taking advanced flying lessons at the near by Wycombe Air Park. The room was small but comfortable. The breakfast was cooked fresh each morning. I forgot to pack the power supply for my MacBook Pro. One of the staffers found the local Apple Store for me and her coworker loaned me her own power supply twice.

I was pleased with the room, the location, the facilities, and impressed with the support of the staff. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: I had an upstairs, corner room. Quiet.
