One night stay at the end of January. Weather was generally fine but very windy. The hotel is a fine old Victorian building, high ceilings, good size bedrooms and very spacious public rooms. All was in a reasonable decorative state, a little tired in places. Reception was very polite and efficient. Restaurant was good and the evening meal was excellent.... More

We wanted to stay in Southport for two nights at the end of january when you obviously cannot guarantee anything with the weather so wanted somewhere with plenty of facilities. We booked the Best Western because of this with it having a pool and spa. On arrival we were greeted by a very friendly and helpful receptionist whos name unfortunately... More

Just spent a very enjoyable couple of nights the Royal Clifton. It is ideally located for all facilities, lake, theatre, Lord Street shops and supermarket. We got a free up-grade to a room at the front and looked across the park and lake to the sea. We booked a double room but they put us in a family room, so... More

Our family group took two family suites and one double room to accommodate 2 families of four and one pensioner. The rooms were pretty good, in particular the two family rooms had lots of space and comfortable beds, albeit with a slightly over-bright green emergency light that could be an annoyance for the more sensitive types during the night. Staff... More

We had a very enjoyable couple of nights in a Promenade view room, although we had to keep the window open as we couldn't turn the radiator off. It was not one of the recently refurbished rooms, but the bed was comfortable, lighting was good and there were two chairs and a table. However, we were surprised to find, in... More

Hotel is ok and met our expectation in regards to price and the very good Xmas party event hosted by the hotel. Rooms a little dated in parts of the hotel but what we had was spacious and clean if not a little bit tired. Reception staff first class and very friendly as were the bar staff. We stayed one...

Booked through a travel zoo deal. Had never been before. Saw some mixed reviews but on my experience wile it's true it's an old hotel - Victorian era grand hotel with refitted insides - it offers great value for what I paid. The restaurant offers nice food and again there is a offer for guests that make it great value... More

We have just returned from a weekend stay at the Royal Clifton Hotel and I must share our experience. The hotel is from the Victorian era and therefore when you arrive you should expect that type of ambience. The hotel is huge but despite this the staff make you extremely welcome with friendly greetings. It didn't matter which staff we... More
