Thank you for taking the time to write a review on the Clarence House Hotel. I can tell you that we are re-dong as many bathrooms as we can each winter, especially as we have discovered the 'magic touch' in turning our bathrooms into walk-in wet rooms, which makes them bigger and takes away the step that you mentioned.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are trying to re-do as many bathrooms as we can each winter until we have eventually re-done all of them. With 76 bedrooms in the hotel, we cannot re-do them all at the same time, but I will certainly be putting my team into Room 315 this winter, if... More

Thank you for taking the time to review the Clarence House Hotel. As you have obviously learnt over the years, all of our bedrooms are different shapes and sizes.

Lovely position for a hotel. Lovely views. However our twin room was like a corridor, which seemed like a large room cut in half. Hot water was almost impossible to get at early evening time, shower leaked water over floor ever time through ill fitted door. Plastic door between bedroom and shower room, not very effective at privacy! Meals okay,... More

I was very sorry to read your review. As I keep mentioning in my replies on Tripadvisor, the Clarence House Hotel is NOT a purpose-built hotel, but 3 old houses that have been converted into a hotel. None of our rooms will ever look like a standard hotel room. I really do wish you had mentioned that there was a... More
