“comfortable one night stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

Stated for one night on 13 november 2013 on a walk in basis, was offered a sea view room but decided to take a rear facing room as sea view room was much smaller, room basic but very clean & warm, hotel running turkey & tinsel at the time so hotel decorated accordingly, lift to all floors very handy, comfortable nights sleep, bathroom clean but shower not working probably but water very hot for bath , bar has a two happy hours each evening which is nice but not enough seating in bar so had to take drinks to room, breakfast lovely, staff very quick and efficient, parking can be a problem but too be honest the whole of tenby can be a nightmare on parking would stay again at a reasonable rate

Room Tip: Don't be afraid to view several rooms before deciding as some can be quite small

Having stayed at the clarence hotel recently with a walking group, we found the rooms were very good, great views across the bay from our room.
Breakfast excellent and penny the manager who dealt with our group was brilliant.
Staff were also very good also.
Would definitely stay at this hotel again.

I have always liked Christmas so have often wondered about a Turkey/Tinsel break before the main event. Now I know! Such fun. The hotel do this over and over with such a smile on their faces, And do it well. We leave, and the next group arrive and off they go again! I would have thought they would lose enthusiasm, but no. Very very good.
The hotel itself was good also. Rooms are simply furnished and maybe not huge but have everything required and are clean and smell fresh on arrival. If you get a front room then you get a good sea view too. Bathrooms are good, lovely showers, in our case a wet room. Hotel accessible to the disabled, with a good ramp in, an efficient lift, and in my case with a mobility scooter, shown where I could leave it to recharge.
Food tasty, plentiful, very quickly served by some incredibly efficient waitresses.
This was a coach trip, and there was at least one other group there, but also several independant travellers.
If you go you will meet Hubert, say hello from me. He is such a part of the place, has been there forever!

Room Tip: Try for a front room. Floor does not matter as lift efficient

Stayed on 1st November for one night with 7 other couples. Hotel clean and tidy. Staff great and helpful. Breakfast lovely. Rooms clean and confortable even if a little small perfect for just an overnight stop. Fantastic views out over the beach from our room on the second floor. Perfect location. Could do with a bit of updating but does everything it needs to and most of all is clean. Would recomend and we would stay again.

Room Tip: Room 220 looks out over the beach but is directly opposite the lift.... There is about three foot f...

Spent a weekend there and what a great place, staff were first class despite wearing name badges upside down :-). Rooms very clean and comfortable, food was very good. Lads working on the bar were great and always up for a laugh. So can't complain about a thing, would definitely come back to this hotel.

Having just returned from The Clarence House Hotel, i can heartily recommend it to anybody who requires a very well run establishment. It's location is ideal for both the beach and the town, with superb views of the bay to boot. The staff were always very helpful and generous with their time and, could not do enough to satisfy the needs of the many guests in our group. The rooms were exactly what i expected for the price i paid, with very clean and comfortable beds. The on suite facilities were very good, especially the power shower which was always hot. Good access for those customers with a disability is a major boon, not always found in small hotels, so well done for that too...Again thank you for your efforts on our behalf!!
