Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I’ve stayed here for 3 lovely nights in a super clean room. I loved the mattress, it is mega comfortable. A really nice touch is the hospitality tray with fresh fruit , tea, coffee, delicious biscuits. Many thanks to the hotel manager Judith to arrange my stay to be perfect. Thanks to all the friendly and lovely staff: TOM, Miguel, Vineta, Chloe, Kaden, Pete and Marek for their great service. The location is great and close to most must see points. I will come back on the first occasion.

Had an amazing stay at the Clifton! After backpacking for the last 4 months we were begging for a great stay and the Clifton delivered. A big comfortable bed, clean room and bathroom, and a tv were simple pleasures that added up to one of our best stays of our long trip. It was private, quiet and we didn’t hear anything from any other guests. The staff were lovely and the breakfast at the on-site restaurant downstairs was brilliant. I’d recommend the Clifton to anyone in visiting Bristol.

Few times I put 5 stars in my reviews, but the Clifon hotel merits them (at least wholeheartedly). Located in a tranquil area, its rooms are cozy and the hotel is full if light. Clean, handy and distinguished in its officially medium- rated standards. The only 2 things that desmerized its five stars were the heater of my room, which worked day yes, day no, and the tiny, spartan breakfast we had ti grab in a paper bag which consisted of an apple, litle cardboard packed juice and a croissant. Apart from it, I loved my room, my views and the hotel, after all.

We arrived late and we're helped immidiately very friendly by Sam working at the recepction. And when we would like to change the room for a bit more privacy, that was no problem at all! Next day the help of Judith with some printing and stuff for us on the computer, was again so friendly! Plus Judith put all our bags and suitcases by herself in the new room! Soo friendly again! The room is very nice and comfortable and the Hotel is located very central for shops and retaurants! Really a place to come back to! Very friendly service and good price too!

This was a last minute booking and whilst a good location the room was very basic, not very clean and the bed was not particularly comfortable. On the plus it was cheap for the location but I wouldn’t stay here again. I suspect it would be ok for some younger city trippers.
