Stayed for just one night in a "desirable" room - the room categories seem to be quite random! The room - up in the ancient lift, down a flight of stairs and up another - was tiny, barley 4m x 4m, + bathroom. With internet access (wired) on a rickerty half table but a very comfortable bed and a fantastic and dramatic view of the cathedral. That is what you are paying the premium rate for - a "character" building, the location and the view.
Our rate (through late rooms) did not include breakfast but the offering from the "cafe" did not look anything very special and there are very many other options right by the hotel.
The staff were pleasant in our short dealing with them.
TIP: Drive to the hotel to unload your luggage then drive to park your car.
TIP: This hotel is *not* suitable for anyone with mobility problems.
This hotel needs to do more than offer a "room with a view" if it wants to establish a good reputation.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Looking to the future of The Royal Clarence, we have every intention to rebuild the hotel with enormous sympathy..

The fire wrecked the inside of the landmark building and left the frontage on the brink of collapse. ... more less
