On arrival, we were given a very warm welcome by Karen. We were accommodated at the front in a spacious, warm, comfortable and spotlessly clean room. Plenty of choice for breakfast, perfectly cooked by Richard. The property is well located by the beach, harbour and shops and a parking permit provided allowed us to park right outside. Despite being so... More

Really just confirming most of the positive comments in other reviews. Location is great - we were a little concerned that it would be noisy but it wasn't a problem at all. Rooms all very clean and comfortable. and breakfast great.

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

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!
