The Clarendon is a nice Pub to stay at. But it is a Pub and if that's what you want its all good. The room was very clean, modern and comfortable with the usual conveniences. The hot water can be slow to start when weather is cold but that's not a big deal. It is Hot eventually. It was a little rowdy outside my window on Sat night but I kind of expected that -as it's a Pub. The car park was a bit of a trek away with a heavy bag- on my own- but I felt safe (various swipe cards separate guests) and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. In terms of value for money- its not expensive, but you could get a nice- ish hotel down the road for only $20 a night more when you factor in the car park fee. And if you're a woman travelling alone that might be more appropriate in terms of not having to deal with the Pub crowd when returning home in the evening. On the second night the (town hall ?) clock chimed loudly so I was woken at midnight, 4am and then again at 6am- so not so good for light sleepers. Didn't notice it on the first night.
