Positive Reviews

Lovely, quaint decor an attraction.

Though relatively small, the Clare House bed and breakfast has positive reviews when it comes to decor and room size in regard to value for money. Be aware that the decor may feel dated to some, with bedding and carpeting reminiscent of the 70s and 80s. H

Good value for the money.

For the value, reviews are average in regard to comfort and expectations. Don't plan on seeing too much of the staff, as it can be rather limited depending on season. Comfortable enough beds, but nothing fancy. No Internet or Wi Fi services. Simple and se

Adequate for one night stay.

Owner is agreeable in regard to a variety of arrival times even into the night. Rooms small but serviceable, and full English breakfast is available for an additional charge, which makes one wonder why it's classified as a bed and breakfast. Be aware that

Negative Reviews

A tight squeeze for some.

Negative reviews revolve around signs of the bathrooms, which are rather compact and don't allow for much elbow room. Some rooms on the top floor have sloping ceiling and may require taller individuals to slouch.

Uncomfortable furnishings may spoil a visit.

Of the few negative reviews, complaints focused on outdated furniture and lack of comfort of the bed and bedding. Some showers may work better than others, and you may need to refer to instructions for hot water, so you may want to check before unpacking.

Extremely limited parking.

Travellers and guests should be aware that parking is on a first-come first-served basis at Clare House. Space near the front of the bed-and-breakfast suitable for three cars comfortably, but four cars is a squeeze.
