I stayed at the Best Western Royal Clifton Hotel and it was quaint and cosy. I could envisage my parents and grand-parents being nostalgic about a place like this. As it had an obvious history with plenty memorabilia to support a time that was its hey-day, which has long since gone; but still the halls and corridors seem to hold onto those memories. The character of the hotel was visible with cambered and creaking floors. I had an interesting long walk and lift ride to my room that had an ensuite and a comfortable double bed with a blanket I remember having on my bed in the sixties. The rooms were clean and had the usual amenities expected in rooms. I did have a good night’s sleep having had a long drive that evening to get there. The parking was free to hotel guests, but it was awkward to park along the strip of road and parking in front of the hotel. I did have difficulty finding a space available as it was nearly all full. I had a three course dinner at the hotel restaurant that was very good indeed and good value. The breakfast the following morning was equally as good and was included as part of my stay. I did discover this hotel is popular as a wedding venue as it has big ballrooms. The bar situated at one end of the hotel was a bit dated and reminded me of a 70’s working man’s club, as did some of the older staff members working on the evening of my arrival. The hotel does have a spa, which I could have enjoyed had I brought my fitness and swimming attire. It was a nice place to stay on a cold winter weekend, having plenty of character, which made a nice change from the more modern ambience of the usual hotels I tend to stay in.
