I had high expectations of the Royal Clifton with it being located on the front of a beautiful british beach resort, however these were dashed almost immediately. I felt like once entering the hotel I had been transported back 40 years in time, the out dated style along with the stale smell and humidity left me extremely disappointed. The hotel... More

Stayed here for a few days while visiting family. Hotel in desperate need of an update as it is terribly dated, feels dirty and dusty, although I think it probably is clean, but the dated decor and heavy furnishings don't do it any favours. On the plus side leisure facilities are good and location is fine. It will not surprise... More

We've lost all faith in the hotel business. It seems that coach parties rule the industry and indifferent staff run the place. Not so here. Obviously someone was in charge and the staff actually did their job to a standard. The food was top notch and presented in a modern fashion without being arty farty. Dining was a pleasurable occasion.... More

We returned to the Royal Clifton for our 7th visit & once again had an enjoyable stay. We usually stay on the second floor, having a promenade room overlooking the gardens, lake and sea. We have never experienced any noise and sleep well. Staff are helpful welcoming cheerful & professional. We always go half board and enjoy the tasty breakfasts... More

Bathroom had no ventilation & the window was sealed. Cracked basin & floor tile. Old, uncomfortable spring mattress. Hot, dingy room & window would only open a few inches. Manager was very disinterested. £80 & no breakfast- disgusting!
