I spent a single night here in January 2012. It is the perfect country inn. I adored my stay and wish it could have been longer.
Upon arrival, I was upgraded to a room in the main house (#4). The room was lovely, with perfect accents, an orchid by the bed, personalized note welcoming me with fruit plate and mediera on the desk, and Ray Charles music playing on the radio.
The shower is the best shower I believe I've ever had at any inn! The bathroom was huge and really well-equipped, including dual sinks for a couple. The bed was comfortable, and the shades kept out the morning light completely.
Since you are in the main house, there is some noise that filters upstairs from the restaurant and kitchen, but this was over by the time I wanted to go to bed. However, early-to-bed types might want to consider this since dinner and clean up lasted until around 11pm or so.
The continental breakfast the next morning is just coffee, juice, and baked goods. They were good, but it is not a full breakfast.
Everyone at Clifton was gracious and polite. I would absolutely stay there again.
