Fabulous b&b, run by Karen and Richard. The place is immaculate. Our bedroom was spacious, scrupulously clean, with an ensuite that looked to be brand spanking new. Soft towels, tea and coffee making tray, with complimentary biscuits and still and sparkling water, replaced daily. Richard cooks up a great, high quality breakfast, served by the lovely Karen, who seems to... More

My husband and I visited for a two night stay as part of his 50th birthday celebrations. Make no mistake. This is not your average B&B. The Clarence is a very warm, comfortable and high end establishment. Perfect location, just off the main road. Close to the beach, shops and the old harbour. The Clarence has great attention to detail... More

Arrived at The Clarence and greeted by Richard who gave us a parking permit and directed us to parking during our stay. The B&B is in an attractive part of the town and was quiet during the night. The place is spotlessly clean. The breakfast was extremely tasty. I have fresh fruit and yoghurt this morning with scrambled eggs on... More

Close to everything, the Beach, shopping and restaurants and the harbour. Our room was small but very nice, clean and well equiped. The host, Karen, was so friendly and helpfull. Breakfast... More

Very friendly owners. Good sized room. Parking permit was great and we managed to park right outside. Good breakfast. This place is in a great location for the beach, the shops and restaurants, but without any night time noise.

Stayed at the Clarence for a 2 night break. There are many places to chose from in Weymouth but I am very pleased we chose the Clarence and would absolutely stay again. Excellent breakfast, immaculately clean, great room and lovely owners. Perfectly situated for exploring Weymouth, loads of pubs and restaurants nearby.

A bank holiday weekend away with friends. Very comfortable high quality rooms, superb breakfast and great service. Located very near the beach and harbour where the best restaurants are. So good for us. As a holiday weekend parking was an issue. Although guests have a "permit" you have to wait, and hope, a space becomes available. In the two nights... More

I've been here a couple of times and would return again if in the area. But it seems most people who stay here are of the same opinion so book early. It gets busy. Nice room, excellent location for the town centre, delicious breakfasts all backed up by kind and friendly hosts. Well done!

The Clarence is as near to a perfect experience as anyone could get. I have stayed here so many times now and feel 'The Clarence' deserves to be shared. The overall presentation is fantastic; the decoration is always looking pristine, quality and service is key to the stay with Karen & Richard giving total attention to every detail. The breakfast...

I have stayed in a number of hotels in Weymouth, but this has to be the best with a really warm welcome from Karen. My double room had a comfortable bed and the ensuite shower was very efficient - plenty of hot water. The final touch was a superb breakfast.
