Disappointing.

Went to a mystery murder over night stay. The dinner was fine and the breakfast was very good. However the bedroom was very dingy the windows look out onto a very small dirty area surrounded by 3 stor... more

Owner Response
gmroyalclifton, General Manager at Best Western Southport Seafront Royal Clifton Hotel & Spa, responded to this review
Dear pam_brooks, Thank you for your review and I am sorry that you were disappointed with your room. We have refurbished 80 of our 120 rooms in the last 12 months, including some of the rear facing rooms. Many of our rooms have excellent views, but yes, some are rear facing and there are a few which face into alcoves. Whilst I believe these rooms are to a good standard, when business levels allow we prefer to allocate alternatives, but during your stay for Murder mystery we were very much fully booked. I am more encouraged by your comments about dinner and breakfast, and hope that you enjoyed the Murder Mystery element too. The rate you quote I believe includes dinner bed and breakfast for two people plus the cost of entertainment which is factored into the price quoted by the agent who arranges the murder mystery. Should you consider returning for another event, please contact me directly and I will be happy to ensure you are allocated one of our best available rooms at no additional charge. With very best regards, Alistair

Dear gazza h, Thank you for your review, and good to see you have done some research. Yes, the hotel has been here since 1853 and brings with it lots of charm and history. And refurbishment program is detailed correctly too. We hope to progress with the remaining rooms in due course. Particularly please with the comments about the staff, and I am glad you were able to get a special offer in the restaurant too. Thanks again for your kind comments and hope to see you back again soon, Alistair

gmroyalclifton, General Manager at Best Western Southport Seafront Royal Clifton Hotel & Spa, responded to this review
Dear dcorbittmd, Thank you for your review and I am sorry your experience with us did not match the rest of your trip. We have refurbished 80 of our 120 bedrooms in the last 12 months, and have plans to complete the remainder in the near future. Unfortunately 114 was not covered in the last program, though we hope will be included soon. I'm particularly concerned regarding the housekeeping element you raised, and will follow this up with the housekeeping manager. Many thanks, Alistair
