The Clifton Hotel is unfortunately very tired and in desperate needs a facelift. The cleanliness of the hotel is also open to question – the coffee cups in our room were dirty and there was pubic hair on the bathroom floor! It’s all such a shame as the hotel occupies a marvelous location perched overlooking the north bay and in its day would have been spectacular.

Just spent 4 nights and we really enjoyed our stay. cleanliness was a bit to be desired in room. but food was good. Barman leigh seemed to be run off his feet serving in bar and restaraunt and nobody seemed to help him but he always served you with a smile. we did not know that if we wanted to put drinks on our room we had to get our credit card preauthorised as we were not told at reception but leigh the barman explained it all to us and to other guests too. Withl all the service he gave in Bar and Restaraunt he is a Credit to the Hotel wish I could say the same about the rest of staff. we would stay again

From a distance this looks a nice hotel. Then you get close! Very dated and shabby. That wouldn't have been so bad if it was clean. Room overlooking fire escape, window frame hanging off. Couldn't open window. Tiny room. Blanket on bed, no quilt (that was in the wardrobe without a cover). Evening meal should be £25! We paid £10 and that was enough! Receptionist didnt give us fob to work lights so had to go back down 3 flights of stairs. Good points- good position, waiting staff friendly. Planned update can't come soon enough.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else!

Had a kgb deal and only paid £29 for bed and breakfast so was not expecting too much. Very small car park, but the reception staff will give you a disc to park right outside for free for two hours and you do not need a disc on a saturday night after 5 and before 12 on sunday. Communal areas dated and carpet very worn in places, taped up on the stairs. We were in room 241, a double, blimey it was small you could just get one person standing in the room, and the bathroom is tiny. However great sea view, bed comfortable, spotless bedding and towels. Breakfast in the morning fine, fry up, all fresh, cereal, toast, porridge, tea, coffee and fruit juices. Staff constantly cleaning tables. Handy for central scarborough. For what we paid it was fine, but if I was going for more than one night I would probably pay more and book somewhere else.

Room Tip: Sea View room.

Very cheap deal however that doesn't warrant an excuse to not clean the room! Toilet dirty and obviously not cleaned, broken shower, taped up with masking tape! Hairs all over the bathroom floor. Empty bottle of wine still in the room from previous guests! The room was like a cupboard, very stuffy. We even paid a £10 upgrade for a delux room with sea view!!!!! Dread to think what the basic rooms were like. Plastic bed spread on bed was unbelievable. Walls had holes in them, paint peeling, grubby carpets and decor. Stuck in the 1970's and prob not cleaned since then either. staff very unhelpful, and quite rude. Felt like we were a hindrance! I can honestly say this is the worst hotel I have ever had the misfortune to visit. Felt dirty and grubby and couldn't wait to get home and wash away the grubbyness of the Clifton hotel Be warned, other unsuspecting customers. Never ever go there, or do so at ur own peril.

Room Tip: There are no good rooms!
