2 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed for a couple of nights and have to say was so disappointed. Our room had baggy worn carpet, damaged furniture, 60's bathroom, no air conditioning, windows only opened to around 4" and a mattress which should have been changed 10 years ago. Evening meal was very nice but surroundings again let down by patched up wallpaper and dated decor.... More

Once was a jewel of a hotel I'm sure, but now it is very much a faded one. Decor is dated and tired. Nice peach 70's / 80's bathroom. Clean and tidy but hardly cutting edge. Bed has seen better says too. Breakfast disappointing. Poor quality fruit juice (tastes watered down - or doesn't taste that's the problem). Tinned grapefruit... More

This Hotel is in an excellent location within walking distance of everything and we had a sea view which was lovely and actually had an upgrade on our room. The room was very spacious and had everything we needed. Quite a dated hotel in need of some refurbishment some things were a bit tatty or needed a lick of paint... More

I was in Southport for a conference and this hotel was chosen for me, and how glad I was! The Royal Clifton has a lovely atmosphere of Victorian Grandeur in the public rooms, but the bedrooms are delightfully modern, with excellent facilities and comfort. The staff are not Victorian, they are friendly, helpful and patient, it was they that made... More

I had my wedding here July 9th and what can I say. From start to finish the attention was second to none. From the original booking with Vikki then taken over by Kelly, their professionalism was amazing with such detail into making our day special. As we were only a small wedding we used the Vaults room which to us... More

Had a lovely stay over 3 night at this hotel. The food was spot on and the facilities were excellent (swimming pool, jacuzzi, gym etc all included). We did have a bad nights sleep on the Saturday with people running around at 3.30am looking for Pokémon. All in all a pleasant experience. It is slightly dated though and could do... More
