“Comes highly reccomended”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

We stayed at The Clarence this weekend and had a lovely stay. More expensive than your average Weymouth B&B but the standard of the rooms and hospitality were well worth the little extra. We had the room on the top floor which seemed smaller than some of the others but the view of the sea and coastline was beautiful. The Clarence is in a great location next to the harbour and beach and we'd definitely reccomend it.

Room Tip: For the best view, get the top floor room.

Loved the Clarence. You really felt you were a guest, not a customer. Loved the friendliness of the welcome, the great breakfast, the help if we asked for some assistance on planning our day.

Lovely clean room..bit hard to swing a cat in, but would you really want to do so when you are in Weymouth?

Well located..about a 10 or maybe 15 minute walk from the station. Our train was late but our host waited up for us.

Free wifi, and it worked just fine.

Particularly impressed by the attention to detail...for example, providing an adapter for the UK. Even though we carried our own adapters, these days you have so many devices, it is just great to have a spare one so you can charge the tablet as well as the phone.

We were also glad to find bottles of both still and sparkling mineral water..this is just perfect for us, because I prefer sparkling and my wife won't drink anything but still.

Anyway, this has to rank as one of the best B&B s we have stayed in. Have no hesitation in booking in.

We stayed for four nights and enjoyed lovely clean and comfortable room with all the little extras you would expect in a larger hotel.
Karen and Richard made us feel very welcome and the breakfasts are superb.Would definately go back and would recommend to friends and family

My 1st stay in this superb hotel, Karen and Richard are very friendly and welcoming, rooms are excellent with tv dvd tea coffee biscuits, breakfast is superb and a wide selection of fresh fruit and cereals along with the traditional full cooked breakfast, I intend to visit Weymouth again soon, and the only place I will be staying at is this superb hotel, no other hotel can compare!

Our 2nd stay and another fantastic experience. The rooms are immaculate and the b ad b is in a great location right in the centre of Weymouth, near the prom. We wouldn't stay anywhere else now. The breakfasts are super and the welcome and service exceptional.

I have enjoyed staying at Karen and Richard's superb B&B on several occasions over the years. Whether its been on my own, with my Wife or with the whole family I have been incredibly impressed with the central beach location, quality of interior and the personal touch provided by these superb hosts. The rooms are impressive in size, comfort and cleanliness, the service is extremely efficient and helpful, the variety of food available at breakfast is second to none, especially the full english. Having stayed in many places worldwide and around the UK I can whole heartedly reccommend this superb Weymouth B&B that is definitely a cut above the rest in all respects.

As a regular visitor to Weymouth over many years, I have stayed in many B&B's and whilst all have been quite pleasant, I have to say that the Clarence is the best yet! Lovely people, first class English breakfast with a great supply of fresh fruit too. The single room was clean and tidy and well equipped for the very reasonable rate.
I will stay at the Clarence again on all future visits to Weymouth and I would certainly recommend it to anyone else. Great location too, right by the beach and the delightful harbour..a lovely weekend with great breakfast and very friendly hospitality. Thank you, Ray R H

Room Tip: Room 6 was nice and a well equipped single, BUT a little warm. That said a room fan cooler is provid...
