A nice old Victorian building perched on a prominence overlooking the sea. Very comfortable hotel with lots of old world charm. A very nice dining room with a pianist greeting you at the entrance. An ample bar area and lounges. Very helpful staff very close to tunnel and ferry ports.

Sometimes it is better to let some time elapse before writing a review and this is one such occasion. We visited the Clifton back in early July for an annual pilgrimage for my aged mother. The hotel is not expensive and in general you get good value for money. The bedrooms were clean although my bathroom was a little on... More
