Had a really enjoyable stay, nice clean rooms, good breakfast, but two bug bears. Breakfast is over by nine, so you f you are on holiday to relax you can't lay in. Also the front bedroom was subject to a lot of noise on Saturday night, but otherwise pleasant stay

Well stayed here for 1 night and what a great wee hotel. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The breakfast was great and the waitress was a great laugh, just what you need in the morning. I will stay at this hotel when I visit Peterhead again. Thanks for a great stay.

The stairs are quite a handful and the attic room is to be missed, but the time I visited it everything was lovely the breakfast were delicious. I do hope the new owners will keep it the same and not turn guests away as I have family do to stay in July It is very central

I've stayed at the Clifton numerous times over the last few years. A very well run B&B. One of the best. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and the showers are hot. Carol and Magda always cook a fantastic breakfast to your individual order. An effort is always made to meet your requests for a particular favourite room etc. An illustration... More

We booked into the Clifton for an overnight stay, we were attending a family function in the town. Our room was beautiful, large and airy with an en suite shower room. Breakfast was good. Very easy check in/out. Would stay again.

This is my second visit to the Clifton, though back in 2008 it had less rooms and a bar. The same people run it and are as friendly and helpfull as posible. Our rooms were on the ground floor and were not on suite but the shared facilities were very accesable and allways spotlessly clean and for the most part... More
