Stayed here for our annual Christmas shopping trip to the Metro Centre. Great place to stay. Comfortable rooms. Staff are very welcoming. Breakfast was great and they even offered a gluten free version to most things on the lunch menu. GF chocolate fudge cake was amazing!! Definitely coming back to stay again and soon.

Have been to the Clifton Cafe a few times and it is always good. The staff are friendly and helpful and the menu has a good choice with delicious cakes too. Only (very tiny) gripe is slightly too much salad dressing and caramel sauce all over the cake!
