Very friendly owners. Good sized room. Parking permit was great and we managed to park right outside. Good breakfast. This place is in a great location for the beach, the shops and restaurants, but without any night time noise.

Stayed at the Clarence for a 2 night break. There are many places to chose from in Weymouth but I am very pleased we chose the Clarence and would absolutely stay again. Excellent breakfast, immaculately clean, great room and lovely owners. Perfectly situated for exploring Weymouth, loads of pubs and restaurants nearby.

A bank holiday weekend away with friends. Very comfortable high quality rooms, superb breakfast and great service. Located very near the beach and harbour where the best restaurants are. So good for us. As a holiday weekend parking was an issue. Although guests have a "permit" you have to wait, and hope, a space becomes available. In the two nights...

I've been here a couple of times and would return again if in the area. But it seems most people who stay here are of the same opinion so book early. It gets busy. Nice room, excellent location for the town centre, delicious breakfasts all backed up by kind and friendly hosts. Well done!

The Clarence is as near to a perfect experience as anyone could get. I have stayed here so many times now and feel 'The Clarence' deserves to be shared. The overall presentation is fantastic; the decoration is always looking pristine, quality and service is key to the stay with Karen & Richard giving total attention to every detail. The breakfast...

I have stayed in a number of hotels in Weymouth, but this has to be the best with a really warm welcome from Karen. My double room had a comfortable bed and the ensuite shower was very efficient - plenty of hot water. The final touch was a superb breakfast.

Why can't all B&Bs be like this? Having had a less than enjoyable experience in a different B&B in Weymouth on my previous visit, I checked out the reviews and came across The Clarence - and I'm so glad I did. The owners were warm and welcoming, car parking was a doddle with the parking permit, the decor was homely...

We could not have been happier with the hotel and the owner (I presume) Karen could not have been more friendly, helpful or welcoming. The rooms were nice, clean and comfortable, there's a lounge with a whole bunch of stuff to do if the weathers not so nice - we didn't use it but it looked nice and the breakfast...

I cannot recommend this hotel more highly. From checkin to checkout it was a great experience. We arrived late from the St Malo ferry. Karen helped us with our luggage, showed us where the complimentary parking was and made us feel so welcome. The breakfast was excellent, fresh fruit, cooked English breakfast and great coffee. Anyone wanting to stay in...

We chose to stay at the Clarence after reading the on-line reviews and so had very high expectations before we arrived. What can I stay, from the warm welcome we received from Karen when we first arrived, right to the end of the stay with a hug! We had room 4 which is a lovely front room with a bay...

“Our room was at the front overlooking the park opposite beach (4) though we did not find it in any way noisy so this may be a good choice.”
