We booked the Royal Clifton as the venue for our wedding...we had a great time!!!
The hotel provided a most meticulous pre wedding event service..all aspects and details of the then forthcoming event where considered and planned...we really benefited from their experience!
All that was promised was delivered ... The food was well received by everybody..the staff were both efficient and courteous..everything was done to make the day as special and as enjoyable as possible.
As the last guests took to their beds in the early hours...all felt that that they had shared in a brill celebration!

A somewhat dated hotel in need of refurbishment. For the price we paid (£118.00 inc breakfast) we expected something reasonable, the room we where given (204) had no facilities at all not even a bath! The ancient sash window appeared in danger of falling out and the view was second to none, some mesh netting and brick walls. But the Piece de resistance was a large either air conditioning unit or extractor fan on the flat roof below the window, the noise was deafening, the old window didn't make any difference, although the machine went off sometime that night it returned literally with a bang at 6am. Because we where attending a friends wedding we decided not to make a fuss especially since we where only staying 1 night. but I can honestly say I have stayed in B&B's with better facilities at half the price. On another note the prices for drinks are exorbitant and the draught "My Mums Rolla Cola" was disgusting! The car parking situation was ludicrous and if you are claustrophobic DONT use the mini lift. On the plus side it is in good location.

Room Tip: don't use room 204

Booked to stay as a friend was getting married there. Old Victorian hotel, with a certain charm. Staff were friendly. Location good for Southport. Car parking chaotic. No fridge in room, no safe, no bathmat, no welcome/info pack, no numbers on phone to call reception. Had to go back down to reception to get WiFi code and the number for reception! Very, very small lift that did not go to 3rd floor! Décor very tired and shabby. No way of turning the radiator off..we were sweltering, as it was a hot night The whole place was stuck in a 1970s timewarp. You can do old fashioned and still have modern facilities...this hotel didn't! For the price charged, nearly £100 for the night, it was in no way value for money. I've stayed in £60 a night hotels that knocked spots off this place. Don't waste your time...I won't be back there in a hurry!

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are better than a the view of the back car park and fire escape that we and others had!

Booked into the hotel for one night with my partner as a birthday treat. Love shopping and eating in Southport. We booked in and were given room 249. Which was along an corridor on multiple levels, to a lift. Up to the second floor and exit to to multiple doors and corridors modelled on Stalag 17. The room was tired and depressing, but clean. Me and my partner decided we wouldn't stay. We went to reception who offered us an upgrade for £20. These were on the third floor. Much nicer room, although no mattress cover. I would stay again but only on floor three. Did seem odd that at forty something's we were out of place, everyone was under 10 or over 70. Didn't dine or have breakfast so can't help you there I'm afraid.

Room Tip: Third floor rooms are best.

Stayed here a couple of times. Friendly atmosphere and great rooms.
The hotel is quite old but very nice.
I did intend using the gym facilities but on viewing the gym I decided against. Very limited and the equipment wasn't in the best of condition.
There are a couple of places to eat in the hotel, the restaurant or the bar. Both are nice but the restaurant is the best for a nice evening meal.
Rooms were spacious and clean and the beds comfortable.
Situated on the prom and a short walk around the corner on to Lord Street were there are lots of shops, cafe's, bars and restaurants.

Room Tip: A room facing the prom is a must. The hotel is very big so if you don't want a stroll to your room, ask for a room closer to reception, even if it is first or second floor.
