The Hotel is well placed to all that Southport has to offer. all within easy walking distance. We were met at Reception by friendly and efficient staff that looked after all our needs. We arrived an hour or two before check in, but in any event we were checked in and asked to come back a little later, which we did ( the car park was free which is a refreshing change for once.
We were given our key and directions to our room on the first floor. My wife Liz was blown away as when she opened the room door we had a large bay windowed room along the prom and yes - she could see the sea!! She asked me if I had asked for this room as a surprise, but I had to confess it was pot luck - well done to the Royal Clifton staff.
The room was clean and comfortable, the bed was fine, the TV could have been bigger to make it enjoyable to watch from the bed, but it worked fine. The wifi was just not quite strong enough to reach our room (115) but worked fine in the reception lounge. The bathroom worked well but would have benefitted from a once over.
We ate in the restaurant the first night, the food was excellent as was the service. We asked if we could exchange our bottle of Prosecco for a bottle of red wine, which they did without any problem.
It's an older hotel, but well looked after, the big plus being it had loads of character.
We are planning to visit again next year being as we enjoyed it that much. less
