short break

Posted 21-Sep-2014
Pros: Staff, curtains and bed headboard, furniture in bar, lounge, reception areas.
Cons: Better information/awareness on car parking facilities prior to arriving. Drying facility for towels. Clean the carpets!! Clean the windows!!!
Location: Pickering, Robin Hood bay, Whitby, Scarborough, Moors, lovely villages, casino, bowling, sea life centre plus loads!!
Very grand looking hotel, lovely large room but carpet very stained, large stain on coffee table. Asked for and got sea view but windows so dirty couldn't see out!!! No where to dry towels! Last evening NO Heating in room. Extractor didn't work in bathroom and bathroom door wouldn't shut properly. Two tea bags each day between two people is EXTREMELY mean. Little things spoilt what would've been a brilliant room. Staff were very polite, helpful and cheerful. Perhaps stock a bottled 'ale' beer. Didn't know needed to book car parking space.

needs a good makeover

Room clean enough but the hotel is run down and badly needing a facelift. No fresh towels and room only cleaned once on our 3 night stay. On the plus side breakfast was good.

Great location

Posted 19-Jul-2014
Pros: Its location. Breakfast.

Pros: bits
Cons: the décor is very 60s looking
Location: Its on top of a hill which is a bit of a climb back up from the beach...
Staff was helpful, Food was nice, Décor needs some attention lots of cracks and damp patches all over the place. FLOOR BOARDS CREEK AND SOME ARE BROKEN UNDER FOOT...walls are thin you can hear next room talking, The car park you HAVE to book a place which should be first come first serve. I had to leave mine on the road outside which was an extra £6.00 and it got bumped into but the staff didn't seem at all bothered which Pi ed me right off,

Good room this time

Posted 17-Jul-2014
Cons: All rooms improved to the same standard. Wifi in all rooms.
Have stayed at the Clifton before and we weren't impressed, but decided to give it another chance. So glad we did. We stayed in one of the newly 'done-up' rooms and it was lovely. Everything nice and clean.

Overall, our stay was good. They had a happy hour from 12pm to 6pm in the bar, and having had Dinner and breakfast found the food to be excellent. We had a lovely seaview room. The room was spacy, but things like the state of the bathroom and the TV in the room are rather dated now. The one poor aspect of our stay was car parking. I would suggest reserving a space as the street parking is at a premium!!
