“Lovely B&B in a great spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2012

We stayed here for New Years in Weymouth. We had the top room in the attic, which despite being a bit wind blown and drafty, was perfectly clean. (You may wish to be relatively fit to stay in this room!!)
Lovely breakfasts, great location by the old harbour, a living room to retire in (or indeed, take dvd's up to your own room), helpful owners and yes you do get a parking pass for the square as a guest. On top of that it's good value for a hotel that by rights should be in a noisy area yet tucked away in the square seems to miss all the hubbub of the main sea front esplanade. Would go back there again.

Room Tip: The attic room is not for those of an unfit disposition or a BMI to embarrassed by.

This B&B is situated right on Weymouth Sea Front, close to the harbour and ideal for a walk to the shops which are only 30 secs away. Its clean, fresh and the owners are extremely friendly and welcoming. Our room was airey, clean and perfect for a night away. Breakfast was hearty, freshly looked (even had Nuttella!! to spread on my toast), and they accomodated to anything that we needed. Definately would recommend.

Room Tip: We had room 2 which was at the rear of the property - no view but didnt expect to anyway.

This hotel is superb! Host's Karen and Richard are so warm and welcoming! The rooms are clean beyond expectations. The rooms are well equipped with TV, DVD, tea making facilities, biscuits, alarm clock with iPod/iPhone facility and Even Moulten Brown hand wash and shower soap! The location is superb for the seafront, town and restaurants like Floods. The breakfast is excellent. The whole package is worth every penny!

We stayed at The Clarence at the end of August for a short-break in Weymouth.

I have to agree completely with the majority of reviews for this place - the hotel is probably the best place to stay in Weymouth - fantastically managed hotel with nice rooms all furnished to a decent standard. The amenities are excellent, a dvd player included into the television set, the bathroom toiletries were also of a high quality standard. The complimentary bottles of water daily are a nice touch.
The breakfast served is definitely a highlight - lots of choice and variety - all freshly cooked while you wait. Includes hot and cold breakfast choices – with very friendly staff always receptive to any specific requests.
The location is excellent - a short walking distance to the local restaurants and Weymouth beach.
I would definitely return again on any future visit to Weymouth

There is so much choice on the internet in Weymouth, but this was a great selection. We had the very top room, with views over the Bay. The museum was closed, so we will definitely be back to Weymouth and will stay here again. If your BMI is over 40 you wont be able to get up to the attic room - it would be worth a strict diet for! Although it is convenient we were not disturbed by road noise.

Room Tip: We loved being in the attic

Rooms are very clean and tidy and we wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in Weymouth. Breakfast is awesome with a variety of fresh fruit, cereal, cooked breakfast, yoghurts, toast, tea, coffee, orange juice - the list is endless and the staff are all very welcoming and friendly. We have stayed at The Clarence for 6 years and always look forward to our next visit - we have already booked for next year!. It is like home from home - nothing is too much trouble. Everything in the rooms is well looked after and is very good quality. The bed linen & towels are very clean and fresh and there are clear instructions in the welcome pack about when the rooms are cleaned and changing of towels and bed linen etc. The Clarence is on the Esplanade and very handy if you have young children and have to pop back to your room throughout the day if you are on the beach, around the harbour or in the town. The lounge has a Wii and large flat screen tv, there are toys for the children to play with and a large selection of books and DVD's for guests to make use of. This guest house is the nicest looking hotel on Weymouth seafront and the owners Karen & Richard are an absolute joy to deal with. Both myself and my husband and indeed our three children would find it difficult to mark The Clarence down in any catagory. Would recommend this guest house to anyone considering a stay in Weymouth.

Room Tip: We have stayed in a variety of rooms in the guest house and have found them all to be of a superb st...

We stayed at the Clarence recently for the first time, for two 2-night stays wrapped around a visit to Guernsey. We chose the Clarence due to the good reviews and its proximity to both the Condor Ferry and a relative who lives nearby in Weymouth. We made an excellent choice. Both the rooms and the breakfasts were excellent - the room was bright, airy, spotlessly clean and with lovely white sheets and duvet. The breakfast was superb - high quality and cooked to your order with lots of choice of cereals, fruits, etc. The times for our ferries were "unsocialable", but Karen and Richard could not have been more accmmodating and helpful. As we are likely to be visitors to Weymouth at different times of the year we will definitely be staying at the Clarence again. Derfinitely recommneded.
