“Great location, clean & tidy but poor breakfast”
Reviewed 27 January 2013

I booked this last min, and it was cheap, so value for money it was. It's in a good location, close to shops,10 min walk to the castle. The rooms are fine, bed comfy, but the shower is terrible, cold water in the morning so I waited until the afternoon, then it was barely tepid. I thought it was maybe only our room, but at breakfast I heard other guest complaining. The breakfast was also very average, as in one of the other reviews, I can testify that tinned mushrooms are disgusting. The bacon looked sweated, certainly wasn't grilled, scrambled eggs had no taste, the cooked vegi option is egg, beans & the mushrooms & toast. The plus points are the staff are lovely and there is parking for 4 cars, so that saves cost. I was very satisfied with most aspects, but cold showers & poor breakfast just let it down.

Room Tip: Don't get a room at the back as there is a pub across the road & their patrons are foul mout...

Easy to find, the Clarence Hotel on Clarence Road, we enjoyed our two night stay in Windsor. All rooms are en suite with clean, modern bathrooms. Furniture is antique and the hotel has the trappings of a sturdy and elegant home in a neighborhood of similar homes. We found it quiet, comfortable, and equipped with everything the traveler needs: toiletries, a beverage tray, hair dryer and radio alarm. Full breakfast is served daily in a lovely dining room that overlooks the garden.

In addition to the comfort of the Clarence, the location is matchless. One street over is a lively street with a pub and all varieties of cuisine and shops. A few blocks north of Clarence Street is Windsor Castle and a three story shopping Mall, as well as many smaller shops in the neighborhood. Windsor is definitely a walking city if your base is in the right location

Room Tip: Rooms on the back of the house are quietest.

Just one night stay - room 23 - lovely spacious room with first class bathroom. Clean throughout, first class friendly service, breakfast very good but PLEASE ditch the tinned mushrooms! (No-one likes them!!) Beautiful self contained steam room in corner of really pleasant garden (heaven in summer I would think). Overall excellent value, perfect for Windsor town/shops, WILL be back. Constructive feedback - apart from tinned mushrooms! - sachets of shampoo?

Thanks to All at The Clarence

Room Tip: Can only speak for 23, 3rd floor, garden view, Excellent. On third floor - 2 flights of stairs quite...

Thank you to all the staff for a wonderful and comfortable stay!! From a home to home!
Also, for the excellent, efficient customer service, that was provided to ensure our comfortable stay.

We didn't expect breakfast to finish so early, 8.45am, but we managed ok.
But breakfast was lovely and filling! and the efficient, quick service was provided with very friendly staff.
My boyfriend had a full english breakfast and loved it! I asked if I could have a vegetarian and they very quickly, amazingly quickly, made up a lovely veggie breakfast for me!

The room we were staying in was ok, we didn't expect to get a single bed as well as a double bed which was a nice surprise. The shower was good but didn't have stronger power when i switched the knob to full power. It was a bit weak.
But all in all, our stay was lovely and we had a really enjoyable stay!

Fantastic location, central right near the shops!
Thank you all for a lovely stay!

Room Tip: Just a few tips that we noticed in our room: *There was plenty of shampoo but no shower gel. A cou...

Just returned from a 2 night stay at The Clarence..( Jan 13) and found it to be very good. Room was comfortable and clean, staff were very pleasant and friendly.
What i liked was, you couldnt get a better location.. as just a very short walk from the shops, restaurants and bars...of which there were numerous!!
Had full English breakfast each morning which was nice..if i had to be critical , would be nice if the bacon was freshly cooked instead of re heated..Tastes much better..
We arrived fairly early so parking wasnt an issue...parked in their car park..and went by foot for cpl of days. Visit the Italian restaurant just round the corner.. Francesco`s...great value and excellent fresh food.

My friend and I booked in for one night b& b at this hotel in Windsor. I got a very good rate at laterooms.com and was not disappointed. Fantastic location- really central. Room was small but adequate for the two of us as all we wanted was somewhere to sleep as we're out for the evening. Room was clean and we had no complaints (room 6) in the morning we were cooked a full English breakfast with no complaints there either. There is parking for 4 cars and perhaps as it was quiet both my friend and I parked there with ease. Overall an excellent stay. We were simply meeting friends for an evening out and needed somewhere to stay as neither of us live near Windsor and I would definitely book here again.

Reviewed 23 November 2012

Myself and my wife stayed here in Nov 12. Staff were very friendly,and hotel neat and tidy. Room had ensuite and very clean. Nice to go to a place that does good full English breakfasts not just a roll and a cup of tea like so many.

Within seconds of coming down for breakfasts we were attended too and had food within minutes.

The only draw back was that their is no car park here.However the manager kindly let us park on their small drive. You can park overnight on Clarence Road but from early in the morning 30 mins parking kicks in, so you would have to move car first thing.

However we would definitely come here again all that we needed and much cheaper than most
other hotels in the area.
