“Great hotel!”
Reviewed June 16, 2014 via mobile

Outstanding hotel. Karen is brilliant. Excellent breakfast much better than the usual chains. Very clean room and shower facilities are also outstanding. It is located literally a minutes drive to the ferry port.

We have just returned from a three night stay at the Clarence Hotel. We had room 8 , a double executive room . It was a delight, crisp white linen and towels. A huge bay window, it was light and airy. Complete with leather sofa and chair, very comfortable. Beautifully furnished and decorated. Great power shower in the en suite. A large t.v. With tea and coffee available. Karen and Richard were so attentive without encroaching on your privacy. , . I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel ..
A brilliant stay in Weymouth made that much more special by Karen and Richard.
Great hotel...

Room Tip: We had room 8 which overlooked the sea. Brilliant

We spent a long weekend at The Clarence with our 8 month old baby and had a wonderful time. This is a family run hotel and the owners pay amazing attention to detail. Our room and communal areas were spotlessly clean and a cot and highchair were made available to us.

Breakfast was delicious and Karen was attentive and helpful when we had queries. The location is ideal for exploring Weymouth and the local area and having a parking permit was brilliant as it was busy during half term.

Room Tip: Room 4 is on the first floor and faces the beach. The room is large and has a sofa and chair for rel...

We were at the Clarence last week for our 2014 Visit & not disappointed!

Karen & Richard all friendly smiles and their hard work pays off in so many ways.

This visit we stayed in Room 8 & loved it. Yes the en-suite is a little tight for the "larger" man such as me but no hinderance at all to enjoying this essentially British seaside town with a lovely ambience.

This "larger" man also laps up the great freshly cooked breakfast!

We hope to return later in the year or in 2015!

The Clarence is run by a charming and very hardworking couple. It is delightfully clean, fresh, and welcoming. The breakfast is a wondrous affair. The hotel is excellently situated for anyone travelling to/from the Channel Islands.

I have to stay in many hotels throughout the whole of the uk with my job and I can say without reservation this is by far the best. Main points friendliness, cleanliness, rooms and location. Karen and Richard you are a shinning example of how to run a hotel.

A great welcome which to our relief included a permit to park free during what was a busy bank holiday weekend!! The room we were in was a premier double and spotlessly clean and well equipped. The owners were available when needed and with their local knowledge steered us to a few good local restaurants. The breakfast was superb including plump fresh raspberries and strawberries as well as well as a full English which was made with good quality ingredients and the best I have ever had in a while. If your looking to base yourself in Weymouth for the harbour, beach and the amazing Jurrassic Coastline, look no further than this gem of a guest house. It exceeded mine and my wife's expectation not only because of its location which was close to the beach and delightful harbour but more so because of the friendly and superb customer appreciation and service offered by the dedicated owners. Many thanks and look forward to visiting again soon !! - Mark & Gina
