The staff, whilst attentive, did not rush us in any way and we ordered at our leisure. We were shown into the restaurant which has views over Lytham Green, the estuary with Southport beyond. The food was... More

The Clifton Arms, the only 4 star hotel in Lytham. No increase in price for Mothering Sunday. £25 for three course lunch plus coffee. Excellent service in a spacious but not overcrowded dining room. Value for money. Excellent accommodation also available.

There was an awful acrid smell in the lift as though vinegar had been spilled in it. Overpowering in such an enclosed small space. Then an over rawcous funeral party was in full swing... More

The bedroom had tea and coffee making facilities, together with biscuits and bottles of water which were replaced each day. I think the hotel needs to mention this on... More
