I checked in to a smokey room, we were offered another but the smell of polish and masking air fresheners was just too much. Not a place I would recommended if you've come to the lakes for the fresh air. On a plus side the receptionist was trying to be helpful

On approach it is evident that this hotel is in need of some TLC but don't be put off, exceptional welcome from staff, very good food, clean beds and plenty of hot water. On return from exploring hill and vale what better than to find that you have a mug along side the tea/coffee making facilities in room? We wanted...

We stayed in this hotel for one night as we were going to the Lowther show. We had a very warm welcome on arrival. Our room was comfortable and clean, overlooking the well kept hotel garden. with a view of the mountains in the distance. The breakfast was very good. The staff are very friendly and professional.

I travel a lot on business, but on a recent trip to The Lakes, my usual hotel was full, so I tried the Clifton Hill. From the smile and greeting that met me as I opened the front door, through dinner, the bar and breakfast, this was by far the friendliest hotel I have ever stayed in. Another unexpected plus...

I stayed with my girlfriend on my way up to Edinburgh. The hotel is perfect for such an enjoyable trip or for visiting the Lakes.
