Currently sat here in reception waiting for the coach back to the airport. We came with a group of 32 friends to celebrate my husbands 40th birthday. From the moment we arrived we were all very impressed. Friendly staff, lovely rooms, gorgeous food and drinks, central location. Thanks for a great stay, hope to return soon

We only stayed in the hotel to sleep. The beds were comfy, the room was clean and the bathroom was very large. The Clarion was close to a lot of bars and shopping. I really liked that it was close to the quay so it made it easy to get across the river to additional restaurants.
