A very well run hotel with very competent staff, super position and views
Shortage of free wi fi
Sea view, with own balcony. Quiet location with no road outside to keep you awake. Family run hotel with genuine hospitality
The staff were fantastic they couldn't do enough for you. Breakfast was exceptional with lots of choice.evening meals were amazing.location perfect and views amazing.we will definately return in the future.
There was nothing I didn't like everything was perfect.
Location . staff . Balcony with sea view
Location - view from sea-view room was excellent especially for sunrise; close to town centre (5 min walk); close to seafront restaurants too, although this does require descending from cliff top to beach level either by steep slopes / stairs. We didn't mind, but it might be a problem for some. Friendliness of staff. Excellent breakfast
WiFi advertised as being free / included, but this applies only to the first 500MB for the stay. Thereafter it's 'pay WiFi' - should be clarified in the advertising. Probably wouldn't mind as much if it was a good and consistent connection, but it was very variable during our few days. May well usually be better - who knows...
We had a superb 3 night stay at the Clifton. Perfect location in the hills over looking shanklin beach and only a 5 min walk to Shanklin old village.Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast very good with lots of choices. We would definately return. Anyone wishing to visit the Island should consider this hotel.
The sea views were fantastic and the food very good (we only had breakfasts).
The room was a bit too compact-and-bijou for the price.
Staff v friendly.pleasant atmosphere nice clean decor.
En suite was very small
Loved the sea views; thought the food was gorgeous and really good value for money (nice to eat in their bistro early evening); location was perfect for me; staff were extremely helpful and friendly; lovely small cosy bar and also a green area to sit out.
As a solo traveller, invariably, bedrooms and en suite bathrooms can be much more compact. I am not sure if there is any answer to this other than paying a lot more and asking for a larger room with a view. Having said that, there was a great flat screen TV, a double bed, tea making facilities and fresh water in the room every day, which was much appreciated.
The position and the welcome from the staff
poor flushing loo
The hotel was clean. It's location was good. Staff was nice and friendly. Nice carpets all around the hotel. Rooms are good sized. Breakfast was amazing.
We really disliked the manager/owner: He and his wife were treating their staff very rudely, and they were only friendly to local people. Although it is a nice hotel,do not visit it if you are not English. You can easily overhear what people in the other rooms are talking about or doing. Avoid the hotel if you are looking for something quite. Beds were not comfortable.
First class cooked (to order) breakfast. Unbeatable location with superb views. Friendly and efficient staff
Nothing not to like
Nothing to dislike
If you are looking for a hotel to stay at on the isle of wight then look no further than the clifton, 1st class hotel and nothing is any trouble for the staff, you are very well looked after. Looking forward to going back next year.
Staff extremely friendly . Breakfast delicious although took an HR which made me late for meeting .I am sure if I had said I was on business it would have been speedier .I went with the flow !
Fantastic views Comfortable and relaxing room Nice breakfast Friendly staff Discount on ferry travel Close to everything you'd want including restaurants, beach, views, shops. Great location
Internet limited to 100Mb Charged extra for latte coffees Parking a little tight
Location cosy atmosphere breakfast friendly staff
nothing to do in the hotel
Good access to the main street and its restaurants, also it's proximity to the sea.
No life in the place.Had to remember the door code and your room key when going out. Needs modernising
Staff were efficient & friendly. Room small but well furnished & comfortable. Hotel is very well situated, close to town & beach but in a quiet neighbourhood.
A little pricey.
Location; breakfasts; helpful staff
Small bathroom; having to remember the pass code to get in after 10.
We were upgraded to the premier suite, a lounge area and small bedroom, lovely big balcony with amazing views over Sandown Bay. A very nice comfortable lounge with plenty of drawer space for all your bits and bobs. 2 TVs but limited channels. Very peaceful location. Breakfast was OK.
My partner found the bed a bit uncomfortable but that is a personal thing, I thought it was fine. The bathroom was a bit small and could do with some more shelves for toiletries etc, the shower sometimes ran hot and cold although it was powerful. Would have been nice to come back in the evening and have a drink at the bar or on the terrace as the weather was so good but by 10.30 it was all locked up!
Beautiful bedroom with sea view. The whole hotel was spotless and the breakfast was amazing. Service was fantastic. Such a shame we only stayed for one night.
nothing everything was perfect.
Location of hotel. Staff very nice. Room lovely and large, had a twin and beds very comfortable. Breakfast very good. Thank you
If I had to say anything , its the carpets are a bit old fashion, but that is it.
Fantastic location with friendly and helpful owners and staff, and a great choice for a very good breakfast. We'll definitely be returning!
The hotel was clean, welcoming and had a homely atmosphere. The entire staff were friendly and made us feel very welcome.
