I had read reviews, albiet negative about the "Clifton hotel" and was extremely nervous about what "nightmare" I was bringing my family to, for our Summer break! This lead me to calling the hotel one week before our holiday, in order to speak to the Manager -Julie, in order to share this concern. Julie was very nice and assured me that our family room would be clean but unfortunately it would not be a front facing room, however, I was still worried about the different claims about smells in the room; food etc.
With intrepidation, we arrived at the Clifton, in order to embark on our five day holiday. On arrival, unfortunately, there was no parking spaces but when checking in, we were welcomed by Julie, the Manager and she offered to move her car, in order for us to unpack and subsequently park for the night. After our telephone conversation the previous week, Julie personally took myself and my family to our room, in order to ensure that we were happy with it. When we entered, it was not one of the refurbished rooms and was a bit "tired" but is was clean and tidy, so was suitable for our five day break.
In respect of the food, again, we were nervous but we dined for breakfast and dinner in the hotel's ballroom which had a lovely ambience and the food (different menu each night) was lovely and the waiting staff were really pleasant and extremely attentive. There was also entertainment at the hotel and a singer called "Joel" was especially good!
At the end of our holiday, we were sad to leave but also felt guilty that we had read all the reviews and did not have any negative experiences...however, if I could give a good tip, prior to your stay at the Clifton, phone up and pre-book a car park space, as there is limited parking in the surrounding area.
Thank you Julie and your team for a wonderful holiday - we wll be back - "The Gordon Family, Glasgow"
