The bed was so comfortable and I had plenty of pillows I didn't have to ask for any extras. Lovely sized wet room with toilet. Very warm and comfortable....

Thank you for your lovely review. As I keep mentioning on this page, as the Clarence Hotel is not a purpose-built hotel like the Premier Inn, all of our rooms are different shapes and sizes.

Booked 1st floor room with balcony. Excellent views of beach and lovely start to the day. Staff very pleasant. Only bad thing is being so close to street level, drunk singing from passers by not the best (though I'd give them an A for enthusiastic harmonies). Overall very happy
