We have just spent five days at this hotel in Southport. We travelled with Hamiltons Travel from St. Austell in Cornwall. What a smashing hotel. The staff were really lovely and the food was delicious and plentiful. Although we were a party of 83 our meals went without a hitch. Our room was very spacious and really clean. We would... More

I stayed here with my 13 year old son just for a nights break from home and despite a couple of minor problems(which the friendly staff were very helpful about)we really enjoyed our stay. The exterior and interior of the building are impressive, the furnishings match the historic building without looking old or tired. The cleanliness was excellent, our spacious... More

My daughter and I stayed for one night, as we had arranged a shopping trip. From the moment we arrived, we were extremely impressed with the size, grandeur and helpful staff. Our twin room overlooked the prom and was very spacious. The history of the hotel was apparent where ever you looked. This is a very relaxing hotel. Unfortunately we... More

We had an excellent stay at the Royal Clifton Hotel in Southport. The room was one of the superior rooms and it was extremely spacious. The bed was most comfortable but for us the best thing of all was to have two lovely comfortable armchairs, after we had been out walking and shopping all day it was fantastic to go... More

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
