Good 6.0
faded grandeur
Staff at the Clifton were friendly both at check in and when going to the breakfast room. The bedrooms were large, simply furnished and ours had an amazing view over the North Bay. The furnishings including the carpets were faded, but the majority were relatively clean. Unfortunately, the beds were incredibly hard and uncomfortable- hence the main reason for the low reviews. The bathroom was clean but there was no liquid soap in the dispenser for the shower. ( there were two soaps on the sink) The windows were very dirty. Downstairs, the hotel looked more up to date and the shared areas were not as faded. Car parking in the area is limited. The hotel has a small car park, but I don't recall being offered the opportunity to reserve a space - even though there were reserved signs for other guests when we arrived.
