I would consider returning again for location and the standard of the rooms for the price. But suffice to say it was a hostel rather than a west end hotel. Good on the owners for looking after those who need a roof over their heads. But it was quite overwhelming to see a predominance of people, presumably DSS around the hotel when you are on a holiday break. My fears were confirmed about Guest Houses in the west end. Was encouraged by AA classification, but it si time to return for bargains in known chain hotels.

Shocked to find mattress and pillows did not have protectors!!! Towel on the carpet holding the door open - odd and not very hygienic!! Huge bathroom - luxury tiles yet a filthy net curtain on the window! Shower curtain on a makeshift rail - odd. Receptionist standing at front door smoking - not a good image, nor pleasant to pass through a fog of smoke on way out. Poor selection of healthy breakfast options - none!

Bearing in mind that I just needed somewhere as a base of operations and was not spending much time in the hotel itself, this fit the bill perfectly at a very reasonable price. Friends who stayed at other nearby establishments were not so lucky. If you just want cheap and cheerful, I recommend the Clifton.

My main concern was that the car park was not signed with the hotel name so it took me a while to find it and it was very small .However room was very clean freshly decorated and comfy even if decor a bit dated . Bathroom spotless and new.Very good value for money in the perfect location for where I needed to be .
