“Simply the Best!”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

Last Year was superb, this year was even BETTER. The Clarence scores full marks for quality, friendliness and cleanliness. the bed was extremely comfortable and the breakfast is as good as I have had in 5 star hotels with plenty of fresh fruit and freshly cooked "Full English" perfect!

Any landlord would do well to stay at the Clarence for a night to see how it should be done, a master class in quality and hospitality-faultless!

I will be back next year. Thanks for everything, Ray

Just spent the weekend at the Clarence and was made very welcome from the start. Karen and Richard, The hotel is spotless clean and fresh. An amazing breakfast more than ample. Walking distant to the beach and harbour and will certainly go back again. Thank you Karen and Richard.

The Clarence is located close to the beach and harbour, so all the amenities of Weymouth, including a choice of good restaurants, are within an easy walk. It is a comfortable, small family-run hotel. We received a very friendly welcome from the hosts Karen and Richard. The room was nicely decorated, comfortable and spotlessly clean. A highlight was the freshly cooked breakfast served with a smile. Excellent! Parking is on the street, but the hotel provides a parking permit and we were able to park directly outside the hotel entrance.

If you are looking for a small and homely place to stay in Weymouth, then this the place for you. It's comfortable and clean with the greatest attention paid to all the details. The breakfast is excellent, and Karen is friendly without being intrusive.

Stayed for just one night on 24/6/13. Room clean and modern, bathroom spotless. Everything both in the room and the residents lounge looked brand new which is a great reflection of the care taken and hard work of the owners. Breakfast was very very good and the fact that we didn't have to pay to park the car right outside was a bonus! Would thoroughly recommend this B&B.

From the moment we arrived at the Clarence, it was obvious that the proprietors Karen and Richard were keen to make our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Our room was lovely, tastefully decorated and immaculately clean. The breakfast would put many 5 star hotels to shame, a huge array of fresh fruit yoghurt and cereals in addition to a choice of cooked breakfasts. Conveniently located for the beach harbour and promenade I would highly recommend this hotel and would definitely stay there again.

We stayed for two nights over the bank holiday and would highly recommend this hotel. The owners Karen and Richard could not do enough for us and the breakfast was amazing complete with fresh strawberries and a cooked to order "full english". The location was ideal with both the beach and harbour area minutes away on foot and the room was beautifully decorated, spotless and very comfortable. My only concern was whether we would find a parking space close by but on our second sweep past not one but two opened up! We would certainly recommend the Clarence and it would be our first choice should we return to Weymouth.
