Had a lovely 3 nights at the Clarence house B+B. Very friendly and knowledgeable owners. We stayed in room 3 which was very nice and cosy, the bathroom is a bit on the small side but not much they can do about that really. There are a few rules that Graham explains during the check in process but nothing to... More

We stayed with Grae and Margi last week during our three day trip house hunting in the Isle of Wight. We had a lot of bother with Booking.com who originally handled our booking as our plans were constantly changing and I kept asking Grae to change our arrival dates. It's a long story but suffice to say that Grae did... More

Clarence House was a good fit for our 3 day trip to the Isle of Wight. We knew we wouldn't stray far from the Shanklin beachfront, which exceeded expectations- the beach was clean, with really nice restaurants along the strip. Buses come to Shanklin every half hour so you have to time it right and bus tickets are quite expensive... More

Somewhat odd as can be seen in other reviews: 1. Nice hosts perhaps a little to in your face when you arrive. 2. Be truthful - there is no parking on site - the owners have their two cars on the space in the photos and no-one parks in front of someone's garage. Parking in the street is ok except... More

A lovely clean B&B, run by a very friendly couple, Margi and Grae. An excellent selection for breakfast, very clean room, quiet location. Small but friendly and welcoming. Shower a bit on the small side but served it's purpose. Would strongly recommend a stay there

We found Clarence House to be an excellent base for our weeks holiday on the Isle of Wight. The B&B is run by a husband and wife team of Margot and Graeme who were very professional. A information guide was left in our room and Margot lent us a useful guide to the Island. Our room was always well cleaned... More

Firstly the owner Margot was a delight. Always smiling, happy and enthusastic about the island, her lovely B&B and life. The room was delightful with white crisp bedding and fluffy towels. Everything was immaculately clean and pristine. Even if we tried we couldnt pick fault. The shower room looked as if it had been just installed as each tile was... More

We had a lovely stay with Graehame and Margi at Clarence House. I had asked some questions before staying as we have minor disabilities and I am vegetarian. Graehame called back straight away with the answers. He provided me with veggie alternatives for brekkie and those that like eggs will love his poached eggs which are particularly good. The bed...

The location is great, close to the seaside, walking distance about 2-3mins to the beach. The hosts were extremely friendly, breakfast cooked beautifully just exactly what you wanted in the morning, The lady host was also very knowledgeable about the local tourism spots, recommended a few places that we went with very lovely experience. Words can't describe the perfect experience... More

Parking is a bit limited as can accommodate only 3 cars, but is free on the road directly outside: but of course the house , built in 1898 , didn't know much about cars in those days! Thanks so much for all your kind comments and we look forward to enjoying your company again Grae and Margi More
