Thanks to Paula and staff for the wonderful attention provided to us during our recent stay.
The Clarence is a small house that has been converted into a high end B&B. I perhaps picked the wrong room (#1) adjacent to the front door. It seemed a good choice so as not to have to climb a narrow staircase with luggage to reach other rooms but but it was very noisy. Room #1 has a sunken bath (completely impractical) and does not have a shower. I didn't know that at the time of booking. For those who opt for the Clarence, make sure that if you want a shower to specify at time of booking. Paula will make sure that your needs are met.
We stayed at the Clarence for 3 nights. It was a good location as the walk along the seafront was spectacular. It is an easy 10 minute stroll to the Isle of Wight Hovercraft dock and another 15 to Gun Wharf, the train station and city centre.
Restaurant 27' is a high recommend. It is only a couple of blocks from the Clarence and offers fine dining and excellent service.
