A large seafront hotel from the town's Edwardian heyday, the Royal Clifton bears a slightly faded ambience; however it stops short of feeling tired and successfully projects a comfortable, cosy, slightly time warp feel. A spacious and welcoming lobby/lounge makes a good first impression, with plenty of seating and a bar at the far end. The grand scale of the... More

We have stayed on many occasions. This time we noticed that some areas are looking tired and need some tlc. Nothing major, just a lick of paint or a carpet and upholstery cleaner. The bedrooms and public areas are clean (linen bed tables bar etc). The food was excellent and reception staff helpful and pleasant. Hopefully will address the tired... More

We have stayed here twice so far, a very comfortable hotel, general nice atmosphere & a fabulous breakfast! Nice Spa area with sauna, swimming pool could be bigger though! Staff are very helpful & polite. A good Base to explore Southport.

An impressive hotel in a super location. Alhtough a bit dated, everything was clean and in good order. We had a twin front-facing room which was excellent, if a tad too warm. Reception girls were very friendly and welcoming. We didn't have breakfast, preferring to use the nearby (50 yards) Wetherspoons pub which was much cheaper. Evening meals were both... More

This is a very attractive hotel on the Promenade - actually several previous hotels now amalgamated as the name suggests, in very elegant buildings, with free parking within a walled-area. Reception is quite welcoming with deep carpets, mirrors and seating. There are 15 function rooms and various things were going on but we were too tired to investigate. There is... More
