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 20 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 half an hour from Crosby Beach, home of Antony Gormley's "Another Place" sculptures.

Southport is less than an hour's drive from Liverpool, where attractions include the Walker Art Gallery, two cathedrals and Albert Dock, where you'll find bars, restaurants, and museums like the Tate Liverpool and The Beatles Story.

The hotel's Pavilion Restaurant has a contemporary décor and serves classic British dishes. Drinks and light snacks are served in the Conservatory Bar or the Chatsworth Bar.

The hotel also has a health club, 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 2016.
