A nice extra benefit (not just for the saving in parking fees). Full English breakfasts cooked to order were excellent and huge but lots of fresh fruit was on offer as well....

Having just spent my 4th stay here I felt it time to share my thoughts on this lovely B&B. From the warm welcome on Friday to the sincere goodbye on Sunday, we were so well looked after by Karen and Richard and could fault nothing. This is a VERY clean and VERY tidy and well run establishment. Nothing is too...

Amazing ! You could not find fault with anything even if you tried hard . Friendly ,spotless and the attention to detail means that all the little things you could want in your room are there. The breakfast would beat most 5star hotels This was are first visit and we will not stay anywhere else in Weymouth in future .

You can see the owners take such pride in the B&B; which we loved. Small touches like Molton Brown products in the rooms and large supply of tea and coffee is a...

Stayed 2nights here in our cycle tour around Dorset. Karen and Richard could not have made us more welcome and even arranged for somewhere safe to keep our bikes. The room was lovely and extremely clean and the breakfasts excellent. Brilliant location right on the seafront . Cannot recommend highly enough!

We stayed here for originally 2 nights and found the Clarence so comfortable, clean and welcoming that we booked an extra night. The whole property was amazingly clean , the breakfasts fantastic and rooms of a really high standard. Karen and Richard welcome you as part of the family. We will certainly return and would say it's the best place...
