    Very good

    The hotel was is a good area for us. The room was quite small, however we were only staying for one night, and didnt want to pay too much, so it was perfect! Staff were really friendly upon check in and out. And we had a coffee the next morning in the sunshine which was really yummy!

    It was about a 20 minute walk from the centre, but again, it was only for one night.The room was quite small, so price could have been reduced for this. Some more toiletries in the bathroom would have been great. Not all of the TV channels didnt work.

    Location

    Cleanliness - very unclean - room smelt of cigarettes and the bathroom was filthy with dirt around the taps. No duvet and stained blankets.

    Very good

    Without a doubt, it is the front desk staff who make this hotel welcoming. They were a model of professionalism. I can think of several larger and more luxurious hotels who would do well to learn from The Clifton. Good value for money.

    The refurbished bathrooms only seemed to highlight how drab and care-worn the room decor was.

    Fabulous

    Hotel and bar staff (In Racks downstairs) very helpful and welcoming. Room was a good size for our needs with nice personal touches. Price was very fair for what we had and the food in the restaurant was excellent, would definitely go again.

    If anything I would say that I would have preferred an extra hour to check out.

    There is nothing commendable about this hotel.

    The room I stayed in had bed bugs, the management was appaling dealing with my complaints and it is only when I called the Pest Control Unit of Bristol Council that it is an ongoing problem. Appalling, noone should be exposed to this hotel.

    Fabulous

    Good location, secure car parking, friendly helpful staff, liked the offer and wouldnt pay anymore for room,

    I thought the late cancellation idea is great. As the time scale gave us time regarding our visit. It did encouage me to book at your hotel as my husband has being suffering with a severe back problem and did give us the opportunity to wait till almost the "last minute" to decide if we could make out journey.

    I felt my room which was a single, was very very small, and did not think that the price reflected the room, very expensive.

  • 6.2
    Good

    The staff were most helpful at all times

    The general overall appearance of the hotel was extremely 'tatty'. The whole place is in need of redecoration. The doors and woodwork would benefit from a thorough clean. The reasonable cost should not mean a less clean, bright and more presentable place to stay.

    Superb

    The location of the hotel was perfect and there was a very good restaurant in the basement

    The rooms were a little on the small side and the bathroom was very dark!

    It was close to where I needed to be.

    There were bed bugs in the first room I was allocated. I asked to change room and was given a different one, which was cleaner. The interior of the rooms is very tatty.
