    Handy to university. Staff tried very hard to be helpful

    Poorly designed room. No storage for clothes. Vanity area quite unusual with no space for toiletries, no decent mirror, no wall between vanity and stairwell. In room dining menu extremely limited. Breakfast in A1 had unusual menu and no one too sure about what you get in pre paid room with breakfast leading to overcharging.

About

Overview

The iconic Clare Hotel, which was originally a pub and the Carlton United Breweries buildings, and through a sensitive restoration given birth to two buildings in one, a place where historic elements are preserved and contemporary pleasures abound. Here, lifestyle is as much in play as luxury. The 62 rooms offer an embracing mix of bespoke handcrafted items with an authentic, old-world feel, and serve as a base from which one can experience arguably the best rooftop bar and pool in the city, as well as three unique restaurants, which include the inspired work of Michelin-starred chef Jason Atherton. The brewery may be gone, but its semi-industrial feel, combined with sleek new elements, are the reason The Old Clare Hotel is now a neighborhood-defining property.
