Our room was spotless, we had a "compact" flat but it had plenty of room for the 2 of us. The windows were large with stunning views of the seafront. A little apprehensive about the pull-out bed but it was perfectly comfortable. Ideal location, within walking distance to everything & had no trouble with internal/external noise. I can't believe this...

It was lovely to be back in Tenby and at the Clarence House Hotel. The Clarence House is an old building with all mod cons. Our room was overlooking the garden with a huge balcony with table and chairs, and as the weather was good to us we used it often. The staff go out of their way to be...

Hi, this is my first ever review for anything. I normally stay in premier inns and stay in different hotels a few times a month. I booked 2 nights, but due to work could only stay the 1 night.

Stayed for 1 night. Wasn't expecting luxury for what we paid. We were put in the accommodation next door but still had full access to hotel and the stunning beer garden opposite overlooking the sea. The separate accommodation we prefered as you were given a key to access it, and felt like you were staying in someone's apartment. The interior...

Thank you for your lovely review. Please note that the Carnock Flats are not owned by the Clarence Hotel - we only do the administration for the flats.

Good hotel in a good location on the cliff top overlooking the sea and Caldey Island. Within easy walking distance of the town centre. Clean, tidy and comfortable although some of the rooms are quite small. Ours in particular, a twin bedded room, was very small but was adequate for a Monday to Friday stay. All our friends had larger...

Thank you for your lovely review. As I do keep mentioning, the Clarence Hotel is not a purpose built hotel like a Premier Inn and all of our rooms are different shapes and sizes. I sometime wish I had a crystal ball to predict each guest and designate the most appropriate room to them!
