Beautiful place and thoroughly enjoyed our visit! Never expected to find such a great deal in Charlottesville at last minute but so glad I called them! Wonderful dinner and relaxed in the hot tub afterwards🍾. Room was awesome and relaxed on the back porch in the morning! 😊

This was a great midweek couples get away. We spent our evenings in the spa tub and infinity pool complete with waterfalls. The luxurious linens and comfortable bed made for wonderful sleep. I especially liked the antiques and original artwork in the room. The Inns grounds were beautifully landscaped except the backyard view from the restaurant. I assume a wedding... More

My mother always said if you didn't have anything nice to say then don't - enough said! Don't try the Chef's table - what a fiasco that was and a very expensive let down. Apparently I have to say something - the room was decent although you could hear every word from next door very clearly!- the toilet malfunctioned continually... More

We stayed at the Clifton Inn for a wedding and although the wedding itself was really beautiful, setting included, the actual rest of our stay was rather haphazard and not what you would expect for the price you pay. This is a guest house at best, very much NOT a hotel but it's charging high prices for what's on offer.... More

My wife kindly booked a night and a meal to celebrate my birthday. Everything about the Clifton Inn proved delightful. An extraordinary dinner and a delightful breakfast. Friendly and helpful chats with staff members. A beautiful pool set amid beautiful grounds. And a spacious room with a great shower amid a quiet, restful atmosphere. The only regret: we had to...

Visited Clifton Inn for a last minute getaway thx to a fantastic deal via HotelTonight app. The reviews of the inn were spot on - loved it. Peaceful, beautiful, and our room was huge. Will definitely visit again. Highly recommend. Pros: large room, beautiful property, quiet, gorgeous deck to enjoy a late night drink and/or delicious breakfast (we enjoyed both).... More

From the very moment we drove up the gravel drive, the southern girl inside of me was in seventh heaven, the big colonial house, the flowers upon flowers and the welcoming staff I was instantly reminded of all the reasons I had moved to the South for college. After hiking 3 some miles in 100+ heat, arriving at the Clifton... More

We were en route to visit family in SC and decided to stop over in Charlottesville to visit Monticello. We fell in love with our suite at the Clifton Inn, situated in the refurbished stable area. It couldn't have been more quaint and charming...and offered a very comfortable bed, besides. There was a step down into our own private sitting... More

My wife and I stayed in Charlottesville after dropping our son at camp. Our room in the main house was spacious, well-appointed, and comfortable. Dinner at the restaurant was exceptional-- a four-course meal with wine pairings. Even the rain could not spoil the beautiful surroundings. I could not recommend Clifton more highly.

I have never written a review for any establishment until I experienced the Clifton Inn. If my experience at a place was great I thank them personally before leaving. If my experience was negative I just don't go back. My experience with the Clifton Inn began the first week of May to set up a meeting with their event planner,... More
