“Fabulous stay!”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

We've been enjoying summer holidays in Weymouth at The Clarence for 3 years and we wouldn't stay anywhere else now. We're always made to feel so welcome and nothing is ever too much trouble. The atmosphere is relaxed and you are made to feel like family. The location is perfect for shopping and eating out in Weymouth and for enjoying sunny days on the beach (just across the road). The breakfasts are wonderful, definitely a highlight of the stay, a huge selection of fresh fruit, yogurts, cereals and a delicious cooked English breakfast too. The guest house and rooms are immaculate, cleaned thoroughly and improved year on year. Highly recommended!

We stayed at The Clarence for two days in room 8. Lovely room with a nice view. Karen was a lovely host with nothing being too much trouble. The Clarence is a beautiful building that is located close to the beach and all amenities. Breakfasts were included as was a parking permit, which was great. Would recommend The Clarence as a great place to stay whilst visiting Weymouth.

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.
