A beautiful well presented guest house. Every small detail has been thought of, from the toiletries to the black out blinds in the rooms. The whole house is colour co-ordinated and it presents a relaxing feeling from the moment you walk through the front door, it is spotlessly clean, the rooms are comfortable, warm and welcoming, there are tea/coffee making...

I am the hardest person to please when it comes to hotels and will only ever stay 5star. I haven't stayed in a guest house for over 20 years and was nervous but needn't have been! The Clifton is absolutely beautiful throughout. The whole place was decorated beautifully and very modern, the room was spotless and really comfortable and the... More

Very nice B&B, more like a little Boutique hotel. Tastefully furnished, big comfortable bed and really clean. All the staff were lovely, delicious breakfast in the B&B's café. Warm and friendly, we would stay again and recommend to others.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review about your experience at The Clifton. It is a real compliment to be called a Boutique hotel. We have tried to create something that will exceed our customers expectations.... without increasing our prices! It is really rewarding for both us as owners and for our team to get such great feedback.... More

Lovely clean premises. Very nice room everything that was needed. Great breakfast. Lovely pleasant staff who were always polite and easy to chat with. Also a great location near town center and the promenade. Also if you like Indian food try Radhuni also on Ocean Road.

3 generations of the family spent a long weekend. The hotel & staff were brilliant. Each room is slightly different but very comfortable. We are already planning our next trip. It made a great weekend even better.

Thanks Norman for your review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your afternoon function in the Library room. This has been a very popular addition to the hotel and like yourselves, we regularly have families and friends enjoying Afternoon Tea or Lunch in there. It definitely has a very intimate and cosy feel, which is ideal for small functions.... More
