Reviewed 15 September 2012

We stayed for four nights and enjoyed lovely clean and comfortable room with all the little extras you would expect in a larger hotel.
Karen and Richard made us feel very welcome and the breakfasts are superb.Would definately go back and would recommend to friends and family

My 1st stay in this superb hotel, Karen and Richard are very friendly and welcoming, rooms are excellent with tv dvd tea coffee biscuits, breakfast is superb and a wide selection of fresh fruit and cereals along with the traditional full cooked breakfast, I intend to visit Weymouth again soon, and the only place I will be staying at is this superb hotel, no other hotel can compare!

Our 2nd stay and another fantastic experience. The rooms are immaculate and the b ad b is in a great location right in the centre of Weymouth, near the prom. We wouldn't stay anywhere else now. The breakfasts are super and the welcome and service exceptional.

I have enjoyed staying at Karen and Richard's superb B&B on several occasions over the years. Whether its been on my own, with my Wife or with the whole family I have been incredibly impressed with the central beach location, quality of interior and the personal touch provided by these superb hosts. The rooms are impressive in size, comfort and cleanliness, the service is extremely efficient and helpful, the variety of food available at breakfast is second to none, especially the full english. Having stayed in many places worldwide and around the UK I can whole heartedly reccommend this superb Weymouth B&B that is definitely a cut above the rest in all respects.

Room Tip: All the rooms I have used over several years as an individual or with the family are of the highest...

As a regular visitor to Weymouth over many years, I have stayed in many B&B's and whilst all have been quite pleasant, I have to say that the Clarence is the best yet! Lovely people, first class English breakfast with a great supply of fresh fruit too. The single room was clean and tidy and well equipped for the very reasonable rate.
I will stay at the Clarence again on all future visits to Weymouth and I would certainly recommend it to anyone else. Great location too, right by the beach and the delightful harbour..a lovely weekend with great breakfast and very friendly hospitality. Thank you, Ray R H

Room Tip: Room 6 was nice and a well equipped single, BUT a little warm. That said a room fan cooler is provid...

Excellent location for access to the beach & old harbour. Parking may be difficult but the train station is just a short walk away. Rooms are very modern, clean and well equiped. Karen is a excellent host & the breakfasts give you a great choice. I can vouch for the full english being excellent nice work by Richard. If I need to go to Weymouth again or the surrouding area I know I'll be staying in the Clarence again.

Room Tip: The lower numbered room will get a better free wifi signal.

We stayed here for New Years in Weymouth. We had the top room in the attic, which despite being a bit wind blown and drafty, was perfectly clean. (You may wish to be relatively fit to stay in this room!!)
Lovely breakfasts, great location by the old harbour, a living room to retire in (or indeed, take dvd's up to your own room), helpful owners and yes you do get a parking pass for the square as a guest. On top of that it's good value for a hotel that by rights should be in a noisy area yet tucked away in the square seems to miss all the hubbub of the main sea front esplanade. Would go back there again.

Room Tip: The attic room is not for those of an unfit disposition or a BMI to embarrassed by.
