I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights with my partner, and was very disappointed and here's why; 1. Car parking is terrible (to say they have 70 odd rooms and only about 15 car parking spaces is hurendous!) To add to that if you manage to find a car parking space and want to save it... You have to... More

It was very disappointing especially after reading the good reviews it had got recently, we should have took more notice of the bad reviews before we booked. Firstly I will list the positive comments, Clean sheets Toiletries supplied Friendly staff both on... More

just had lovely 4 day break at the clifton, great location overlooking sea, food wonderful and staff very friendly and welcoming(with the exception of the female reception worker that was quite snappy and irritable with guests) but luckily the rest of the staff made up for her!!! Would like to stay here again

Tired decor, decaying paintwork. Drinks machines out of order, lift was broken. Bed sloped down on one side, room was ridiculously hot even when radiator was off. Had to sleep with window wide open, in March!! Bathroom door was covered in dirty marks, plughole in shower was blocked up so shower tray kept filling up. Unpleasant hotel, stuck in the... More

We have stayed at the Clifton on and off over many years and seen it in good times and bad. The hotel has changed owners yet again since our last visit some years ago and there has been some redecorating and renovation work. I know that the rooms do vary but this visit we stayed in one of the "castle... More

Stayed at the Clifton for 3 nights and loved this Hotel. The receptionist was helpful and had a great deal of knowledge on Scarborough and shared this with us. (Chantelle) serving behind the bar was run off her feet, but had a smile for each customer and when clearing the tables she would have a short chat to the customers,... More

En route we decided to stop in Scarborough if a reasonable rate & hotel could be found. The Clifton looked excellent, imposing looking, fantastic views across the North beaches and short walk to the beach. Seemed just what we wanted. I could not book direct at reception but had to phone central reservations. They asked me to name a price!... More
