I celebrated a special birthday at this hotel with my husband. I booked 2 consecutive nights, using the winter shopping offer. This deal included a full English breakfast (freshly cooked) each day and a meal, with a bottle of wine, from the set menu in the cafe restaurant each evening.
The hotel is in a lovely green space in the centre of the city, right next to the cathedral. Concessionary rates are offered at a nearby car park - very reasonable.
We had a very enjoyable first evening in the cafe restaurant. The food was good and the staff couldn't have been more friendly.
On the second evening, we ate in the fine dining restaurant , as it was my birthday. From our glasses of champagne in the champagne bar until the complimentary birthday puddings, it was superb. Earlier in the day, homemade sweets and a birthday card from the staff had been left in my room.
This is a lovely hotel in which to celebrate a special occasion. It has a warm, friendly feel and excellent food. Our room was, as advertised, a comfortable room. Grander rooms are available.
- 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.
