My wife and I have visited Clare House every year for 15 years. We have recommended the House to friends and most of them have become regulars. Try and find someone on their first visit. It is like returning to an old friend every time you visit. The awards for food are displayed on the wall of the reception area.... More

Although I have stayed in Grange many times I have never noticed Clare House before so coming across it unexpectedly was a lovely surprise. After a walk along the prom my husband and I were looking for somewhere for lunch and after crossing the bridge over the railway line found a gate in a wall which turned out to be... More

Clare House is a gem. Service like it ought to be. Nicely furnished rooms. Great welcome. Excellent food. Breathtaking views across Morecambe Bay. Nothing remotely corporate about it. A family run place managed by people who really care. It is only small so the meal times are limited but that's a small price to pay. Some of the decor is... More

Just enjoyed a 3 day stay at this beautiful hotel. The rooms were lovely and we had a balcony overlooking the garden with a view to the sands. The bed and bedding were so comfortable and excellent bathroom and shower. We were made to feel very welcome and the food was cooked to a very high standard with good service.... More

We enjoyed our 3 day stay in May 2013. Excellent location with lovely views over the garden and coast. Good sized room, excellent bathroom and shower. Bedding is sheets/blankets although you can ask for duvets. Very good meals, with nice service. But very restricting in terms of timing. It says 6.30 - 7.30pm but really we felt it meant start...

The food and welcome here is fantastic. Relaxed whilst formal atmosphere. A real treat to come here as a couple or with family or friends. Get here a little earlier and enjoy a sherry and some olives overlooking the bay and relaxing in comfy chairs in one of 2 beautiful lounges. Dinners are served at a set time as they... More

We stayed (with a friend) as we were going to a nearby wedding. We received a fairly lukewarm reception from the owner and our request for afternoon tea felt like an imposition. The other staff (particularly the maitre d') were much friendlier. The setting is absolutely wonderful, really picturesque and the rooms were extremely comfortable. The rest of the customers... More

After a bit of a break we returned to Clare last month for a few days and found it to be as good as ever. The quality of the welcome, food, accommodation and comfort were still of a very high quality and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. However, it pains us a bit to make one criticism and that relates...

Stayed here for 4 nights, 6th-9th September, with my wife and parents. We both opted for superior rooms, which cost an extra £7 pp over the 4 nights and seemed well worth it. My parents had room 4 on the first floor, with lovely estuary views; we had room 5, next door, with a view over the car park. Personally... More
