The Clarence House Hotel
Ranked #13 of 23 Hotels in Tenby
Reviewed 2 October 2012

There was 8 of us for a 40th birthday and although the place was clean, i contemplated packing and moving hotels. Way over priced for a room that we could barely fit in. Only 1 of us could stand and get dressed at a time while the other sat on the bed. The bathroom is hurrendous and shower is almost non existent. Very thin walls and so noisy all night, I didnt sleep a wink the whole weekend. Staff were nice, breakfast was small. I definately would not stay there again

Room Tip: Do not stay here.

Pros: The staff could not be friendlier. Rooms very clean.
Cons: Very shabby and small ‘corridor’ room, only ½ bay windows for sea view rooms.
The doors slam very noisily and the interior walls are very thin.

Forget negative reviews, this hotel could not have better staff (and Hubert!), could not have better food, bar prices very reasonable, (especially 8 to 9pm with free drinks) and we really enjoyed our stay! Rooms and carpeting etc are dated but hey so what? It's a 2 star! Would not hesitate to return to the Clarence!

Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. Paid quite a lot of money as this was a special treat and was quite dissapointed at the shabby room. The view was fantastic though and even though it looked like something out of the 70s, i had a brilliant sleep, the bed was really comfortable,The staff were nice, breakfast was fine and it was clean. I didnt like Tenby as much as I thought so wont be returning.
It did have a very friendly atmosphere and did cater alot for the older community but I prefer that.
Go have a great time but dont expect the Hilton

Had an overnight stay at the Clarence for a friends 40th.

Great hotel and wonderful staff.

You get 1 hours free bar as a full paying guest, the only downside is that it is from 8-9pm so unfortunately we missed it. Breakfast was very quick and organised with a couple of choices. The hotel is a little bit dated but it was very clean and close to everything. Early morning seagull alarm lol!

The hotel was so nice and pleasent. the staff were very friendly and the place was extremley clean!
we had a family room with shower room (most of the rooms seem to have shower rooms rather than bathrooms) and 2 other rooms with 2 single beds. breakfast was included and we had a good price.
directly opposite the beach.
it was a lovely stay and i would recommend this hotel and return for sure.
thank you Clarence
