Guest comments

'I've stayed at enough hotels to know what I want. How did Clare House,measure up? Room clean and well appointed? Tick. Bathroom ditto. Hot water not taking ages to come through, and sink draining quickly? Tick. Firm beds? Tick. Blankets and sheets instead of duvet? Tick. Cheerful staff? Tick. Add to this nice views, a well-tended garden, interesting period decor, innovative and plentiful breakfast served at table, and my expectations were more than fulfilled.

'We have always been delighted with this excellent hotel. It has a delightful setting in manicured gardens. The food is outstanding. The staff try to accommodate guests’ wishes. No silly rules and regulations ' - Nancy Kilburn - April, 2014
