“Little Gem in St. Annes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014

This was our second visit to this lovely hotel. Only a short walk to the seafront of St. Annes. We had a large room with our own patio area. Very comfortable! Tea and coffee provided in the room also. The hotel has a lovely indoor swimming pool, jacuzzi and gym!
The food was wonderful! We had a buffet breakfast including full English every morning. The evening meal consisted of four courses. Lovely! There was entertainment nearly every night.
Lots of cosy nooks to hide away in if you wanted to chat or read a book.
The staff were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you Derek and staff for making our stay a very happy one! We'll be back!

Room Tip: Quieter rooms at back of hotel. Front bedrooms overlook main road but traffic noise minimal.

This was my first visit to the Clifton Park Hotel and I enjoyed every minute of my stay. The food and entertainment were excellent and I loved the way the staff got involved with the theme. The pool and Jacuzzi were a bonus and I used them every day. I came away with a smile on my face feeling very relaxed...... what more can I say.

First time visit, but already booked again. First class service from start to end of our stay. Delicious perfectly cooked meals with very good choice of food, perfectly suited to the Cruising theme of the holiday. Comfortable rooms and beds could not hear a sound from other guests at any time. Entertainers were varied and played all our requests. Nothing was too much trouble for staff who were all very highly trained. Cant wait for our next holiday there. This to us was a very Top-class hotel, not what we usually have on our bargain coach holidays.

Room Tip: Ours was an Executive room (103), which had been allocated without us asking for it, full bathroom s...

This was not my first visit to the Clifton Park, and won't be my last. From arrival to departure nothing was to much trouble. My room was excellent with all the facilities I needed during my stay. The food is first class , all fresh and high quality produce, served by a great team of staff.

Just returned home after a 5 day holiday with Leons of Stafford to Clifton Park Hotel in St.Annes..My wife and I have had many holidays with different coach companies to different hotels,but have never had a holiday as good as this one.The coach was on time,very comfortable
and the driver very helpful.The hotel was spotlessly clean throughout,our bedroom very comfortable,the food was excellent and the staff were first class.It was a themed holiday and the staff joined in and made everything perfect.We will visit this hotel again as soon as possible,and recommend it to all our friends.Thank you Leons and Clifton Park.

We stayed 2 nights over Easter - Saturday and Easter Sunday, feel we have wasted good money. We booked executive room, this was 519 an attic room at the back of the hotel, handy if you need to sneak out the back way and make use of the stenna stair lift trying to avoid all the muck and debris on the stairs!
I can only describe it as a strange room and felt as though we were shut away in the attic.
Not a good impression, cleaning leaves a lot to be desired, peeling wallpaper needs attention
but having said that the small bathroom had good lighting, shower was ok.
In the room we had been given out of date milk, 10 days old - did report this to reception.
Also there was a constant droning noise that could be heard in our room, very annoying and not sure where it came from.
Thankfully we had only booked B&B, breakfast nothing special, plenty of choice but poor quality sausages, only just warm and on our 2nd morning the plates in the warmer were cold. Make your own toast a bit of a nuisance - why? But this would seem to be a tradition in St Annes.
Thought we would sit in the lounge for a drink before going out but trying to get served at the bar was a problem as we were ignored, ok it was after 7pm and dinner being served so barman busy doing other duties.
I agree with the last review, pensioners seem to love this style of hotel. Just not for us and we won't return. Shame, as from the outside it looks to be a nice hotel but really needs a revamp and better attention to detail.
