Clarence Gardens is in a great location with wonderful views over the bay. It is within easy walking distance to the cricket ground, Peasholme Park, town centre and the harbour beach area. Paula welcomed us on our arrival and was really friendly and helpful.
We stayed in room 27 which is on the 3rd floor looking away from the sea. The lift only goes as far as the second floor which was OK for us but worth noting. We were informed of this by e-mail before our arrival which I thought was good practice. We thought the room was looking a little tired with old fashioned furniture and the pillows were hard. As seems to be the case nowadays the hotel was too warm which meant we did not get a good night's sleep. Opening the windows helped with the temperature but let in the sound of squawking seagulls. The en-suite room was small and we could not get any hot water from the shower although the water in the sink taps was almost too hot. In fact the water from the cold water tap was a bit warm for brushing teeth. We mentioned this on departure and were offered an apology but no money back.
At £51.95 for room only, I thought this property was over priced. In future I'll stick with budget hotel chains when booking an overnight stay at the seaside.
