Stayed here for 4 nights with my wife while we were over from Australia visiting Family. We booked a double room, it was a great size with a lovely bathroom and a little entrance lobby. It was spotless with a great shower. There was nothing better then the breakfasts here after a early morning walk down the pier or on...

I couldn't be more complimentary of the place and the staff. Myself and my girlfriend were well looked after. The staff were extremely friendly and supportive when I had to change the details of my booking due to personal conditions unrelated to The Clifton. We appreciate their understanding and it is my opinion that this illustrates what good people are...

Myself and my family came up to Newcastle to visit friends, and we stayed here for one night in the downstairs family room. Such a lovely hotel, friendly staff and beautifully decorated bedroom. Breakfast was included and that was very yummy! Plenty of choice! Not only is it a great hotel it's in a fantastic location too! Plenty of restaurants...

I was visiting this area just to see a few friends for a couple of days. Booking was easy and quick and not a problem. I arrived and the staff were lovely and very helpful. The hotel itself was beautiful and very comfortable to stay in, and the price was good value for money. I very much enjoyed my stay,...

My daughter and granddaughter had arranged a surprise outing prior to Mothers Day and I was happy to see us pulling up near the Clifton Hotel. Luckily my daughter had booked a table as it was extremely busy despite the tea room part of the hotel having been made larger since my last visit. I thouroughly enjoyed my prosecco, sandwiches,...

We stayed for one night after taking our daughter to stay with a friend in Newcastle. We recieved a very friendly welcome at check in. The room was very clean and had everything we needed for a short stay. The tea room was very busy when we arrived, seems like it is very popular with the locals, and there was...

I used trip advisor reviews to select somewhere to stay from Aug16 to Mar17 whilst working in South Tyneside. The Clifton is fantastic and I would highly recommend to others. The rooms are spotlessly clean, the beds really comfy and breakfasts fresh and cooked to order! I stayed 2-3 nights each week over this period. I would strongly suggest contacting...

Went to celebrate my wife's 65th birthday with an afternoon tea at this cosy, friendly and clean tea room, greeted by friendly staff, although sandwiches were small and few, the cakes and scones made up for it, and all washed down by latte coffee and pots of tea, all very reasonable priced. I would recommend this eatery to anyone. A...
