I recently stayed at the Clifton Hotel with my daughter, on a voucher deal, and have to say it is looking very jaded!
The outside of the building is very off-putting with plaster and paint peeling off. The guy on reception was brusque and very unwelcoming. There is an old-fashioned lift (with the internal gate!) which probably takes 4 people (without luggage!)
When we got out of the lift and went in search of our room (no view to speak of) we found corridors with piles of dirty bedding and towels outside bedrooms-at 3 o'clock in the afternoon. Our room on the other hand had NO towels. We decided to sample the 'promotional offer' in the bar, which said that 'house spirits' were £2 each. I asked for a vodka and orange and a vodka and coke, and was told it would be £8.80. When I queried the price the barman said 'Oh , did you want the house spirits?-you should have said' . When I said yes, he poured away the drinks he had already poured , said that I had 'messed up his till' and poured some house (cheap) spirits!
After that we decided to eat out.
The following morning we went into the restaurant for breakfast (plenty of food but mostly overcooked!) and were disgusted to find slug trails on the carpet! Definitely would not recommend.More
