The Best Western Royal Clifton Hotel & Spa is in the Victorian seaside town of Southport, in a prime position overlooking King's Gardens and the sea.

The town is on the Sefton Coast, home to over 15 miles of beaches and dunes, and is known for its Grade II-listed iron pier -- said to be the second longest in the UK.

The traditional hotel is near the Grade II-listed Wayfarers Shopping Arcade on Lord Street. The Ribble Estuary National Nature Reserve is a 10-minute drive away from the hotel and Crosby Beach, home of Antony Gormley's "Another Place" sculptures, is half an hour away.

Southport is less than an hour's drive from Liverpool, for bars, restaurants, and museums including Tate Liverpool and The Beatles Story.

The hotel's Pavilion Restaurant serves classic British dishes. Drinks and light snacks are available in the Conservatory Bar and the Chatsworth Bar.

The hotel also has a health club (free for guests), with an indoor pool, a Jacuzzi, a sauna, a steam room and a gym.

"Bedrooms range in size and style, but all are comfortable and thoughtfully equipped", according to The AA Hotel Guide 2017.

We also booked afternoon tea which was OK, although there were no cream cakes the cakes were fresh and moist. We asked for no butter on the sandwiches, which were duly provided as requested (which we find is unusual!). Breakfast was OK but nothing special. We had an evening meal in the hotel and stressed we both had allergies to garlic. When my sisters meal arrived someone in the kitchen had put a garlic dressing on it. They couldn't do enough for us to make up for this and we were impressed with their concern. We paid for an upgraded room and whilst the furniture was a bit old fashioned, it was in keeping with the hotel and was clean and well decorated. Overall a very nice room.

Room was one of two the smallest on our floor and very hot could not turn the radiator down window only opened about 12 inches. Glad to get home and get a full night's sleep. Came home more tired than when we got there.

The location.

The room 222 had no air conditioning or the ability to turn heating up on a damp evening. There was a severe damp patch in the corner of the ceiling with water coming through the wall - we have pictures of this and will forward them in a separate email to accompany this note. The flower vase water was stagnant on the restaurant tables not changed at all during our stay. The flowers on the piano in the lounge area were beautiful but again the water and the vase were brown.
