“Great little motel, staff were brilliant, very clean!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012 via mobile

We stayed for one night in a through trip from Sydney to Melbourne. On arrival, check in was easy, owner was polite and friendly. Showed us our room which was a little small for two adults and a hyperactive two year old but exceptionally clean and well presented. Complimentary brekkie was lovely. The only downside was the room we had was next to the road so the noise was a little loud. If you are going to stay there with a young child, ask for a higher numbered room towards the back of the motel away from the road. Superbly played for the highway and shops. Will defo stay there again should we visit. Thanks to Barry & Karen for their hospitality :-)

This is close to the best budget motel we have stayed in and is an ideal stopover point in Albury. Older style motel but rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean. Beds are large and comfortable with flat TV and good shower. Complimentary breakfast is adequate and even though in the centre of town, is very quiet. Plenty of good eating places (pubs) nearby and very accessible to station and main road. Hosts are very friendly and welcoming and provide a complimentary drink at a local pub which has good food. You won't get better value than this for a stopover on the Sydney to Melbourne trip.

We stayed at the Clifton on our way to Melbourne after reading the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. We enjoyed it so much that we stayed there a week later on our return trip.

The Clifton is a traditional old motel, but very clean and has everything we needed. Fresh milk, iron and ironing board, table and chairsinside and outside and all rooms non smoking.

The owners, Barry and Karen, are very welcoming.

The double room was $79.00 - excellent value.

And most importantly, it is quiet.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 11 then Room 10 the following week - both were in the back section and therefore v...

We were told about this motel from Katoomba so wasn't really expecting much especially being by the railway station. How central and yet so quiet... Had all we needed with a King size bed, m/wave. frig and very clean & well equipped. Good reception on TV and under $80,, Amazing. Yes and the continental b/fast included.. Really grateful to Russell at The Cecil for his map & directions..

Room Tip: Despite the traffic all rooms seem to be quiet.

I was traveling between Melbourne & Sydney & ended up at albury late one evening & needed somewhere to stay. I struggled to find something that was at least opened & came across Clifton with a light on. Meet Barry who was doing his accounts & who made me feel so welcome that he wanted to be sure that I was ok & insisted I have something to eat prior to be bed. From the service & the reception it beats any 5 star location

Recommend the breakfast !!!

When you are looking for 5 star quality on a 3star budget this is the place for an overnight stay in Albury. No smells, not even coverup ones, quality bed linen, quiet central location, with everything you need including personal service, breakfast and a movie channel! Way to go!

We stopped off here on our way to Mt Hotham from Sydney. Conveniently located just off the Hume Hwy. Nice clean comfortable room with a continental breakfast included in the price. Parking on site too. Would be more than happy to stay here again.
