We had an amazing 3 night stay at The Clifton for our honeymoon, February 2014. View from our suite over Sandown Bay was stunning, what a way to wake up! Breakfast in the sunny restaurant was nice with plenty of choice for us. The hotel was spotlessly clean and we liked the tasteful decor, which was modern but sensitive to the period of the property. We particularly liked the old maps and old pictures of The Clifton and Shanklin.
Ideally located on the cliff top and also near Shanklin old town and centre. We didnt have the car and got around no problem, bus stops nearby as well as the station. David also knows the local taxi companies who were fine. Unlike previous reviews we found the staff at The Clifton helpful, friendly and made our honeymoon special. Perfect way to spend a relaxing few days, thanks David and Carys.
