This hotel is a landmark in Scarborough. Although a little dated it still retains it's charm. We visited over the August Bank Holiday for two nights. Our room was 'below stairs' unfortunately there was no window so two nights was enough! The room was spacious, clean, comfy bed and the bathroom was big with a spa bath and a shower.... More

Room dirty full of dust never hoovered paper all marked coming off in parts. Food cold scrambled egg discusting full of water. Cleaners need to be shown how to clean proper and managment how to smile and have a better attitude. Never ever recommend anyone to stay here. Remember customers are always right. It was like being at FawltyTowers.

OK it's not the Ritz but it's not really that expensive. I am not a big fan of the Britannia group but I do think they are trying pretty hard at their three Scarborough locations. The staff were pleasant and very obliging and although their car park was full they advised us of a suitable place to park overnight. The... More

Well.... Where do I start. I have recently returned from a 5 star holiday in Crete and usually only book 4/5 star breaks, hotels and holiday, however this was a cheap and cheerful one night stay with my husband, daughter and parents. However I am a firm believer in "you get what you pay for" and "realistic expectations". We didn't... More

£182.00 for a pokey twin room with tiny window for 2 nights a joke. Great location. Dining room and bar area/lounge very nice. Staff very nice. Stayed in room 494 on fourth floor next to lift. Noisy because of lift door clashing after use.

Positives - We stayed here because of its close proximity for a concert in the park, so location was good as were the hotel views The staff were all brilliant throughout our 1 night stay. This helps improve the hotel's marking. Negatives - Our 2nd floor room -The wallpaper in our room needed replacing as it was water marked and... More

We usually come about four times a year, all seasons, for a short break of 3 or 4 nights. We sometimes bring our dog, and he loves it too. Even though we have holidays to other places, we look forward to returning to The Clifton, it is consistent and comfortable. The food is good, rooms are clean ,the staff are... More

Just returned from a four day visit to the Clifton. Room was large with on-suite. Tea and coffee making area. Colour TV and sofa with coffee table. The bathroom had a large bath with shower and there was plenty of hot water. All was clean and tidy except the outside of the windows which spoilt the excellent sea views. Breakfast... More
