Everything in working order, although shower lacked pressure... More

Clean, great location, a quiet and solid old fashioned hotel. Car park no where near big enough but ample roadside parking for free when u get a disc from reception. Staff were friendly, bar small but perfectly ok, good views. Would stay again for sure.

Went for a couple of days. Excellent friendly staff and all you can eat buffet breakfast at no extra cost and cheap cosy bar area. Rooms done up and very clean. Excellent to say this is advertised as a 2 star hotel. Great for a short affordable break to the seaside.

Well we decided to give the Clifton another go since staying there a couple of years ago, and since we learned that it was under new management and had been refurbished....Well Mistake!! even dirtier than before, we were quite diplomatic and lenient before, but im afraid there is no excuse for laziness and letting the place become so dirty!. Breakfast... More

We stayed there whilst visiting our friends in Scarborough. The lady on reception when we arrived was very welcoming and once we had checked in and got our key for our room, we released that we needed an iron and board. The same lady at reception had them delivered to our room door. Breakfast is self service, a little disappointed... More

Bad start when we couldn't get to the room we were allocated, my brother is in a wheelchair and we could hardly get it in the lift, when we did get into the lift with much manouvering, the lift wouldn't stop at the first floor, so we had to abandon that attempt. After much debating the desk staff eventually change... More
