Spent 2 nights at The Clifton Arms in early November for a family party. Excellent hotel with friendly and helpful staff. Nice big rooms with proper arm-chairs. Nice bathroom with really good powerful shower. Cleanliness of hotel & rooms & bars was first-class. Good selection of drinks at the bar and nothing too much trouble. Excellent breakfast and they do... More

Stayed here with husband and two children, from booking to checking out could not have asked for more. All the staff, including the lady who sang whilst serving breakfast, were fantastic. The room was clean and kept to a good standard, if a little on the hot side. They gave good advice about where to eat outside the hotel, and... More

Stayed last weekend for one night. The good.... The staff were super. All staff were great, friendly and provided very good service. They all seemed to care about your experience there. The bad...the cost for the inadequate room and sitting at low tables in the lounge on easy chairs to eat meals is not suitable for all. Why not use... More

I've been going to the Clifton Arms for many years and the standards have been consistently high.

We Love the Clifton Arms and have lunch here about half a dozen times a year. It is like stepping back in time with great service and if you are lucky to get a window seat....even better with views over The Green, Windmill, Ribble and over to Southport.
