“Friendly, warm, attendative. Excellent stay at the Clifton!”
Reviewed 4 May 2010

I stayed at the Clifton for 3 nights with wife and baby. We had a lot of luggage and found the free onsite parking most convenient. (Not sure why the previous reviewer had said there was no parking). From the moment we entered we were warmly greeted and taken to our room with a magnificent view of the sea! The room was clean, bright, roomy and more than we had hoped for. The owners had even prepared a nice clean cot for our baby to sleep in. Breakfast was very nice and portions were more than sufficient. The staff were always smiling and making sure we were satisfied. The hotel owners were very helpful on suggesting the recommended sites near and around the Lake District to fit in with our schedule. Although I am not a big fan of walking, the location of the hotel right opposite the sea made it very tempting for us to grab our jackets after dinner and go for a long stroll by the sea side. On whole, our stay at the Clifton was absolutely wonderful, especially the hotel owners who bent over backwards ensuring our stay there was perfect. My wife and I would like to send our gratitude to them for making it a memorable holiday. Thank you!

My partner and I stayed for 2 nights at the Clifton hotel while visiting family in the Morecambe area. From the moment we stepped through the door we were treated extremely well by the friendly, welcoming staff who went out their way to ensure we had a comfortable and enjoyable stay.

Our room was large and had a beautiful view overlooking Morecambe bay. Tea and coffee making facilities in the room were much appreciated, as was the flatscreen T.V. The building itself was quite traditional, complete with a down-stairs lobby and bar in the style of an old-English pub...with a pool table and dart board. The hotel is situated on the sea front in a nice, quiet area of town.

If you're looking for a busy, all-singing all dancing hotel, in the middle of town near pubs and clubs then this certainly isn't the hotel for you... But if, like us, you were looking for a nice, cosy place to relax in for a few days, then certainly give this place a look.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel last night (Halloween) as we were attending a show. We arrived in Morecambe at 1pm, rang hotel to ask if we could check in rather than wait until 2pm. Was told no and to come back at 2pm as room was not ready. Asked where the car park was and was informed no car park, just one space round back of hotel (the website states parking is available!!). Went back at 2pm to check in. Lady was very friendly and welcoming. Hotel looked outdated and shabby in the reception (which was under the stairs) and ground rooms with damp evident from the wallpaper lifting off the walls. Was given key to room on the 2nd Floor, told to take lift as the stairs were not safe! Husband does not like lifts so he took the stairs and she was right, they were not safe. Entered room, room was very outdated with ceiling wallpaper peeling off. Carpet looked like it needed a good hover. Furniture was old and 1980's with wardrobe being propped up and level by folded old bits of carpet, chairs with broken legs belonged on a bonfire. Bed was pushed into corner of the room with black damp spots and paper lifting off the walls right next to bed which did wonders for my Asthma during the night. "Onsuite" was small, mouldy and had pubic hair on the shower unit and around the top of the toilet bowl. Would have complained and found elsewhere to stay however due to time restraints, had to suffer the place. Breakfast - given a choice of three cereals brought in small bowls to your table. No choice for cooked breakfast, given plate with overcooked egg, bacon, sausage, fried bread (tomato was cooked fine and 1 tablespoon of beans). No toast until asked for it then received one slice. Food was terrible. What I will say is that the waitress staff were really friendly and rushed off of their feet and really did their best to make you feel a guest. Checked out, no goodbyes, just a box with sign saying leave keys here (basically, we have had your money, so you can bugger off now!). Would not use again. Three stars, I would not give it one!!

On first glance it looks OK, but there was only one thing nice about this place and it was the staff who serve you breakfast, we had booked well in advance for a family sea view room and a request to get in room early to change for a wedding. We got there to be told room was not ready and we could use another room, which sounded OK at first, but then we looked at room and you couldn't take 2 steps in there without walking into something, I complained and said ''why was room not ready'' to be told they weren't aware we wanted to get in room early, so I said even if room just needed cleaning it wouldn't matter, only to be told they had already booked it out to someone else.
Shower tiles were mouldy, extract fan had dirt all over it.
WEEKEND TOTALLY RUINED BY STATE OF THIS PLACE, IT'S EMBARASSING TO THE B&B TRADE
