We've stayed at the Clare Inn before some 3 years ago and wanted to see if there had been any remarkable improvements. Unfortunately, no! The reception and ground floor are in the process of a make-over but the rooms and the general condition of the hotel is quite disappointing. There is another name change but the hotel is still suffering. The bar staff are very good and the food available is satisfactory but top priced. Being long-term travellers, we use the internet extensively to forward book accommodation. This was NOT possible during our 3 day stay as the system was 'down' and there wasn't anyone who knew what to do. This is not satisfactory for a place that says it has internet WiFi. The best staff could offer was to use the reception computer, but not for long. We didn't use the swimming facilities but the smell of the pool chlorine was very noticeable.
Overall, a great location spoiled its tired and worm appearance. When the make-over is finished, it's hoped the hotel addresses its pricing structure to attract back guests. Previous management offered 'over 50s' special deals.
