Stayed in a family room little bit small I though for 3 adults but was clean. We had breakfast both mornings which was very nice. We also had dinner in the main restaurant one night - the food was lovely but bit over priced, the service on the other hand was very bad and selection of wines was nil !...

I have stayed in Clarion Hotel with my girlfriend and it was an amazing exoerience. Clarion Hotel is my favourite hotel in town in terms of friendliness, location, design, but first and foremost staff. I have dealt especially with Brigitt who is a very professional, friendly and helpful person there. I would highly recommend staying in Clarion Hotel to anybody.
