Just returned from a 3 night weekend break at the Royal Clifton. I was a little put off by some of the negative reviews however I was very pleasantly surprised. We booked 3 rooms and, yes, the rooms and the upstairs corridors are a little tired but they were clean and comfortable and all the beds with new mattresses. 2 out of the 3 bathrooms could do with updating but they were squeaky clean and functional and we had everything we needed so no complaints. We had rooms at the front as we’d heard that the one’s at the back can be noisy from the street behind. The front rooms have great views over the marine lake. The public areas are well kept and there is plenty of seating. The bar is a good venue and there’s the choice of seating in the airy conservatory, the bar itself or the lounge. We ate in the restaurant on 2 nights which was good value and good quality food. We also had the bar menu on one night which was good also.
Breakfast was fine. Not a lot of choice but it was more than adequate. We were celebrating my mum’s 80th birthday and the staff couldn’t do enough to make it a great occasion. They even organised a birthday cake which was lovely. Mum and my aunt had some treatments in the beauty salon which they both enjoyed and which were not overly expensive.
This is a charming hotel with lots of character and wonderful staff. Would definitely stay again.
