Booked in a rush and didn't realise it was a two star until I got the confirmation so with a liitle trepidation we turned up. What a surprise. Warm welcome. Spotlessly clean room, good size and with a side view of the sea. Lovely family atmosphere, with the staff always on hand to help.They had a fantastic sense of humour and that made the stay even more enjoyable. Breakfast is good wholesome and cooked to order. Some odd comments about Graham have been made. Just ignore them, he is very attentive and has a wicked sense of humour - gets your day off to a smiley start! We would thoroughly recommend the Clifton. If you can, make time for a drink in the garden - views are fabulous!
