Just back from a 4 night stay at Clarence House. The hotel is in a lovely location, overlooking the sea, very close to the town. It is a very clean, well organized hotel, with a good sized lift to all floors. I booked a single room but was given a twin room on the fourth floor at the front of...

DO NOT GO! Looks nothing like any of the pictures on booking.com ... terrible would never recommend it to anyone! Very cold, bed was so uncomfortable. The only good point about my trip was that i got my money back.

I can personally say that I took every photograph of the hotel that is on booking.com and made sure that each photo was a true reflection of what the hotel and bedrooms look like. I am a VERY firm believer in being truthful and honest about what the hotel is both via picture and description.

Visited The Clarence House Hotel last week with my Mum as part of a Cloud Nine coach party. I'd read some of the existing reviews of this hotel and my expectations were a little mixed. HOWEVER I have to say that the staff are very helpful and friendly - especially Hubert who welcomed our party on arrival and was really...

I recently stayed a long weekend at the Carnock House (managed by Clarence House Hotel) with my family. The location is fantastic, just across the street from the beach with easy access to the center of town. The flat we stayed in was clean and spacious. We were put in a basement flat, which would have been nice to know...

Stayed at this hotel which was clean and in an amazing location near the town and facing the sea. Should be upgraded to 4 star in my opinion, had a real good experience with the staff on the front desk who went out of their way above and beyond duty to help me with a matter. I will never stay...

The hotel is in a very good position over looking the sea. The hotel is clean, with good food and friendly staff. Rooms were basic, but had all you wanted. The town is within a 10 min walk , and also the harbour. I would certainly consider going again.

My first 'coach holiday' in a hotel that seems to have contracts or deals with coach companies providing holidays. Fantastic, quiet position for a large, family owned hotel overlooking the sea with a gated area across the road, on top of the cliff, for drinks, meeting friends and relaxing in the sun. The hotel, with large bedrooms partitioned to provide...

Our visit here was very pleasant. The hotel is a family run hotel and was having some refurbishment when we arrived, but our room had recently been decorated. The bathroom was very clean and the bed was quite comfortable. The room was of average size, would have liked a bit more space. The food was very good and the staff...

Thank you for your review. The Clarence House Hotel is not a purpose-built hotel and we our bedrooms are all different in terms of shape and size.

Old fashioned-but charming, excellent location. Spotless and clean and a damn fine breakfast. I really enjoyed my stay. It was kind of the hotel to upgrade is to a sea view- and one of the best sea views I've ever had! The hotel looks out on to the sea, a beautiful place to walk with lovely trees and a lovely...
