My second time at The Clifton and again I am very satisfied with the room, hotel and service. I love these old Victorian hotels and like most of them, their glory days are behind them, however, the Clifton is certainly a cut above the rest. The rooms are comfy, spacious and clean.

We always enjoy our stay at this hotel. We love the position and had a sea view room at the front of the hotel. The hotel is ideal for visiting the countryside around, especially The White Cliffs of Dover or a day trip to France

Recently we took a trip to my old home town, Folkestone and were pleasantly surprised at the improvements being made, work in progress, We decided to stay in in the hotel Clifton which we had stayed in some years previously. Then it was like stepping back into Agatha Christie books, comfortable, gentile, newspapers on racks and good service. Now it... More
