My business group has stayed at the Clifton Inn before and went back this week. We stay only one night and don't have much time to take advantage of what the place has to offer. There are only 17 rooms and suites, so it never feels crowded. Our group pretty much takes over the place when we are there. The... More

Although described as "elegant," it is anything but. Our room (5) was large, with tired furnishings, throw pillows that were either torn or stained, the floors were sticky, there was a 2" hole in the floor by the sofa, there were poorly fitted window AC units with large gaps that we filled with newspapers, to try to keep out the...

Umm? A fairly nice place at a pretty high price ($300 a night including tax for starters) but Relais & Chateaux? Not by my standards. Our room was upstairs in a charming but really old house. Squeaky floor that was sticky like someone had spilled Madera wine that had not been completely cleaned up. No elevator so one definitely needs... More

Our son was married last month at Clifton Inn. If your looking for a destination for a big event (we had around 200 people at the wedding) or just a small retreat, look no further. Many of us stayed on the grounds of the Clifton, and others were able to find rooms at numerous nearby hotels. At the Clifton, we... More

This was our first trip to Clifton, and was recommended by our daughter and her husband. We were so glad they told us about it. From the time you enter the Inn to the moment you leave, you are their priority. Our arrival was just in time for afternoon tea which we took on the veranda. Lovely pot of tea... More

We stayed at the Clifton Inn in 2013 and we had such a great time we wanted to go back this year. Luckily, nothing had changed - we even had the same room, the Martha Jefferson. It's a beautiful colonial house, in gorgeous grounds, with comfy communal areas. Our room was cosy and nice. We had a small problem with... More

We are so happy we chose to have our June 7 wedding at the Clifton Inn. The venue was beautiful and the service was first class through and through. We chose to rent the entire property (17 rooms) so that we would have exclusive use of the inn and its grounds from Friday night through Sunday morning. This allowed us... More

Beautiful inn, beautiful grounds, amazing gardens. We drove in and were so impressed by the genteel grandeur! We were warmly welcomed with a brief tour of the main house and available amenities, then shown to our room in an outside building, a converted barn by the looks of it. So rustic and cute! Unpacked a bit then went to the... More

My wife and I rented this property for our wedding. Here is the run down, I cannot say enough about the property, staff, coordinator, and setting. Rooms – this was the third time I have stayed here and have had pretty much the same experience each time. The rooms are high end and all amenities are excellent. The beds and... More

You read the reviews, check web sites, and research the area to find the hotel, B & B , or historic inn that meets your expectations. The Clifton Inn seemed to do all that, but something was just not right. We were upgraded to a suite upon arrival which was small, but very nice. Our main concern was dining. The... More
