A large, rather old fashioned hotel that seemed to cater mainly for coach parties. Bars and lounge areas tended to be quite noisy with loud groups. Room was on promenade side, apparently better. However, although large and light, it was quite draughty and generally in need of a revamp. Fixtures and fittings adequate but old. Coloured bathroom suite, basic taps,... More

Stopped in this place several times and although in need of a refurb was okay for 1-2 nights. Stayed recently and received a £100 parking fine a week or two after leaving. Phoned to ask why but little reason given and took the Duty Manager a while before he would apologise for the inconvenience. Still heard nothing from the General... More

It is a Victorian hotel with a fabulous conservatory which was the backdrop for the wedding we attended. Staff were immaculate and very accommodating. Food was served hot and was very nice. My friends who got married stayed for 2 days and... More

After turning down the room at Edendale Hotel (truly awful) it was refreshing to receive such good customer service and to view a lovely clean room. As with all big hotels, the rooms are not grand, but it was large, had a nice view and a comfortable bed. Nice swiming pool too!

Just back from a two night stay with wife and friends. Nice location but make sure you get front facing rooms if you can. The back facing rooms can be very noisy because of the local bars and clubs. Rooms are somewhat dated but it is a period building. The bathroom suite in our room looked like it was from... More

Thank you for your recent review of the Royal Clifton, I was pleased to read that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you also enjoyed your breakfast. The hotel is ideally located for the Promenade and Lord Street and being a town centre location the occasional noise is inevitable. I do hope that we have the opportunity of... More
