It was amazing! The staff was so tentative and flexible that when it rained the easily flipped my cocktail hour and my ceremony so that I could still get married outside when it stopped. I can't say enough about Fotini and her staff!

The Clifton Inn is breathtaking, nostalgic and the perfect back-drop to the start of any romantic fairytale. Absolutely everyone we dealt with was of the highest caliber of kindness, professionalism and perfectionism. Speaking of fairytale, we were treated like we were nothing less than the highest of royalty. It was all laid out so perfectly and they made great use out of every inch of that place! Highly recommend.

Oh my goodness! The Clifton Inn is simply gorgeous...breathtaking! For the joyful, romantic, classic bride, Clifton Inn has everything you could want, all with gorgeous views!

When I play my harp for events at the Clifton Inn, I'm always impressed with their seamless coordination of every tiny detail while family and guests themselves from beginning to end!

I am a wedding officiant and I officiate at over 50 weddings a season. Clifton Inn stands out of all the many venues I frequent. The staff is on task. Clifton has it's own wedding coordinator, too, which means a lot. There is one person who knows the venue inside and out, and can act as interface between the couple getting married, the guests, the wedding party, and the establishment. The grounds of course, are beautiful to behold, and well maintained. I have not eaten a meal there, but the hors d'oeuvres are fabulous--as is the wine. I

The Clifton Inn is a terrific location for a Charlottesville wedding. Their top notch event staff help with every step in the planning process and the Inn itself is elegant and luxurious. First rate.

The staff at Cliton is superb! It is always a pleasure to work with them to provide exciting new opportunities for guests. We love the Clifton Inn!
