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...

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...

On checking In we were guided to our Flat, (room C102). The flat was more studio type and was really nice, the £72 fee seemed fair. The room had a sea view which was brilliant and a basic but functional kitchen. The Decor was fine and it'd recently been decorated. The shower was small but again very well presented and...

Thank you for your lovely review. I would like to make the point that Carnock Flats are individually owned and are only administered by the Clarence House Hotel.

Just arrived today 28/3/16 already need to change my room, the other room not acceptable and current one a slight improvement. Reception helpful and waiting staff very good. Will post another review at end of my holiday. Us solo travellers need to get this message through to hoteliers and agents we always get the worst room.

Hopefully your review at the end of the week will be a happy one! We are one of the fairest hotels on solo travellers - we are always happy to help coaches with extra single rooms when they are needed. As I mentioned earlier, the Clarence Hotel is not a purpose-built hotel like a Premier Inn and therefore all of...

Called into this traditional hotel for a drink in the ground floor bar. Well what a surprise bought three pints and had change out of a tenner. I like to refer to Tenby as Tennerby as everything costs a tenner! Fish and chips a tenner, two pints of beer a tenner, small pizza a tenner, etc.etc.etc. In this lovely, spotless...

We had a lovely weekend break. Travelled with Edwards coaches. The rooms were spotlessly clean and the food was quiet good. Hotel staff were lovely and welcoming . Couldn't fault the dining room service or the bar service. Even though it was international weekend the hotel still had entertainment on Friday and Saturday night . Will definitely stay here again

Stayed as part of a large group for the second time in 2 years. Both times the hotel has been great. The rooms are small, but very clean with modern-ish bathrooms. Rooms at the front have lovely sea views. The food is good, standard comfort food type fare and well cooked and hot, with good choices.
