The Clifton Arms, the only 4 star hotel in Lytham. No increase in price for Mothering Sunday. £25 for three course lunch plus coffee. Excellent service in a spacious but not overcrowded dining room. Value for money. Excellent accommodation also available.

Have been here many times and always enjoy it. Comfortable rooms and friendly staff. This time though there were a few things that were below parr. There was an awful acrid smell in the lift as though vinegar had been spilled in it. Overpowering in such an enclosed small space. Then an over rawcous funeral party was in full swing... More

We stayed for two nights dinner, bed and breakfast recently. The position of the hotel is superb - directly overlooking the sea. The people in reception were very welcoming and helpful. The bedroom had tea and coffee making facilities, together with biscuits and bottles of water which were replaced each day. I think the hotel needs to mention this on... More

My Mother I were warmly welcomed and shown to our table overlooking Lytham green and windmill. We were promptly served with a cake stand full of sumptuous treats. These included a selection of yummy finger sandwiches and mouthwatering homemade scones (served warm with the traditional jam and clotted cream) and cakes including mini merangues, carrot cake, millionaires shortbread and almond...

Stayed here after our original choice was suffering from a leak during the Desmond storm. Not the style of place I would choose. Room was clean and an excellent size and well decorated, although not all aspects of the hotel were as modern. Seemed like work in progress. One downside was the heat of the hotel.
