The hotel is in one of the best positions in Scarborough. The public lounges, the bar and the dining room are bright, spacious and well organised. The staff are hard working and (mostly) pleasant and helpful. (obviously we're not the only ones to encounter the Reception Clerk!) According to the web site, there are some stunning rooms but we went... More

I booked this hotel through Groupon for my partners birthday. Yes may have only paid £89 for 2 for 2 nights bed & breakfast with one evening meal with wine and afternoon tea but that is no reason for the manager, Julie, to be kurt, aloof and off hand with us when we booked in. We wanted the cream tea... More

We stayed on a Friday and Saturday night on a Groupon deal. We were a bit wary after seeing the negative reviews but we needn't have worried. We were too late to reserve parking but managed to get parked just outside the hotel and this only cost £6 for the whole weekend. The reception staff were fabulous both on arrival... More

Booked our stay through Groupon and waiting impatiently for the next time it is on as I will be snapping their hands off and buying one as a gift for my parents too. Thoroughly enjoyed a 2 night stay at The Clifton Hotel, could not fault our room in any way. Food was fresh, tasty and plentiful. We had one... More

Worried by some of the previous reviews, my three daughters and I arrived for an overnight stay and just wanted to tell everyone at the Clifton that our rooms were fine (fab views over the North Bay), the food was good and we were perfectly satisfied with everything

Me and my fiance have stayed at this hotel 3 times now and each time it has been great people expect far too much sometimes. The breakfast is great you can get as much you as want and all of it is always hot probably one of the breakfasts we have had. The staff are very friendly and always happy... More

From the outside this is a nice hotel,the lobby and bar area are not to bad, but the rooms are not that sparkling ,there's a few cracks and the skirting boards could do with replacing ,the carpets are really old and not fitted correctly. Our room had a fridge but we don't think it had been cleaned, same with the... More

We stayed here last Friday night I don't usually write reviews but after reading all the terrible comments on here felt obliged to write what a lovely stay we had and great value for the Groupon price we paid. Room was clean and comfortable, staff were helpful and friendly and breakfast was nice and there was plenty. Hotel in a... More
