We recently had our Wedding Party at the Royal Clifton 9th May 2015. Can't thank Andrea Burton the Hotel Manager enough. We had an absolutely amazing time, the whole team here couldn't do enough for us. The outside Theatre cooking/paella in the courtyard by Gavin the Chef was truly wonderful and great to see it all going on out there.... More

In terms of what you get for your money this hotel succeeds. We had a suite overlooking the sea ( even though the sea doesn't seem to come in too close). Very comfortable with all the facilities you would expect. The decor and furniture are dated, which is the norm throughout the majority ogf the hotel but this is part... More

This was the 1st time going away with my young daughter so I thought somewhere by the beach would be good. I choose the Royal Clifton as it seemed to be near to all of the main attractions which it was! everything was just a short walk away. The staff were all very friendly and welcoming especially the restaurant team... More

If you like heat (approx 1000 degrees plus) this is the hotel for you ESPECIALLY ROOM 132!! Why on earth would you have radiators blasting out heat at the end of May? The window in the room was open all night but there was no breeze coming in through it. Needless to say I did have to disrupt the lovely... More

Recently visited Southport for a mini break and decided to book the Royal Clifton as it had access to a Pool and Gym,one of only two hotels in the vicinity. Easy to find ,on the seafront overlooking the gardens and boating lake,it exudes olde world charm. It is not clinical at all,it has creaky floorboards,comfortable chairs and settees,pleasant decor and... More

The Clifton is an older Hotel, but what a beautiful location! Lots to see and do nearby. The staff were really accommodating. Room was great location facing the water, actually quite quiet - even though there were a couple of weddings. Our room was (2nd floor) and was not affected by noise. Food was good at both the bar and... More

Just returned from this hotel after a two night stay. It was our anniversary and when I booked the reservation staff asked how many years (46) and said did we want a sea-view room. They were excellent and upgraded us to a huge Bridal Suite which was very thoughtful, it had a four poster bed and sitting area, Quite a... More

No idea what a royal cream tea is. Springs felt through mattress, heating non adjustable. Given a family room when booked a double. filthy worn old furniture in room, fit only for a skip. Breakfast cheap and horrid. Restaurant dingy especially at breakfast. Had to keep window open entire stay due to heating thus enduring clanking flags for entire stay.... More
