Reviewed 13 June 2014

hi me and my wife stayed at Clifton hotel for three days after booking on latedeals on the day we travelled had asked for to reserve parking space also either first or ground floor on arrival no parking space and had to pay £6 to park on the roadside room on third floor lift you had to open door and then pull a gate open very difficult to use soon as you were in lift it shot away very quick arrived in bed room very small toilet you had to rest arm on sink it was that small bedroom underbed you could see where they had cleaned the carpet as the line of muck was underbed also some quaver crisps that had not been cleaned and kettle woke us in the middle of the night coming on I think there was a ghost in the room staff very unhelpful and not very pleasant to talk to breakfast looked good but bacon was burnt for the first two days and on the third day it was under cooked/tea was already made stewed in a flask if that's how you want to have a few days away on holiday to relax please do not go to the Clifton hotel

Enjoyed the stay at the Clifton. Location is great. Work was going on. A dog had pooped in the corridor but it was the best deal available, by far. Not to be recommended but I accidentally left expensive earrings in our bedroom for the whole day. On our return the room had been made up and the earrings were untouched. I reported the honesty and was impressed by it. Rate and service were fair. Seagulls are noisy but not at night. Just early in the morning when you could be getting up for a jog along the cliffs!

Stayed for 3 nights on a KGB deal with my daughter. Bottle of wine and fruit basket on arrival.
The hotel is ideally situated on Queens Parade overlooking the North Bay, a few minutes walk to the town centre and a stroll to South Bay. Our twin bedded room was on the 3rd floor and had a lovely view of the bay. The beds were very comfortable and the bed linen OK. However the room was furnished in 1980s cheap MFI which had seen better days. The television and stand, I had thrown better away. The room was grubby and the sash window in the bathroom was full of cobwebs and flies and had not been cleaned in a decade. The towels were not changed at all during our stay. Tea and coffee, although in limited amounts, were replenished daily. On our arrival a young man was carrying out some maintenance work on the corridor near our room and the debris left was not vacuumed up for a further two days. The common rooms appeared to be OK. Breakfast was very good and always hot. There was a limited choice for dinner but what we had was very tasty (all meals self-service). Staff were all pleasant and friendly, particularly one lady in reception (don't know her name) who was very helpful. All in all we enjoyed our break in Scarborough but if the hotel had a thorough cleaning and some money spent on it, it could be brought back to its former glory.

Had a lovely two night stay here. Paid a bit more to upgrade to a great room on the fourth floor. Food was surprisingly good. Nice dinning room. Found staff to be efficient and friendly. You can get vegetarian sausages for breakfast.

We have just spent a night here it was on a wowcher deal with dinner ,breakfast ,wine and fruit basket . It is a large hotel and it is been refurbished but what we could see was work in progress with mimimum disruption . We had a ground floor room which had been refurbished and had a nice modern look to it what we like most is the views and the easy access to either bay . The meals had a number of choices ,tasty and were hot . We will be back for a longer stay
