We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Claremont. While I have been coming to the village all of my life, one of or party was a return customer and one was new to the village. We all were very pleased with the Claremont. We found the hotel warm and welcoming; spotlessly clean and with new and very good showers The...

Thank you for your review and we are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay.

You did not respond to any of these emails and I had to call you the day...

Have stayed at this hotel in the past years, but was a little apprehensive after reading about the changes to the day today running of the hotel e.g. no breakfast or maid service. However, during our two night stay, we did not find this to be a problem at all. Bill and his lovely wife Wancha made us feel extremely...

The hotel is in the beautiful port of Polperro which is mostly vehicle free but the Claremont has it's own car park. Room 9 was most comfortable and the Wifi signal was reasonably strong. The owner is most friendly and has recently introduced 'bed on a budget' which is good value accommodation without breakfast, this proved to be a great...

My daughter and I stayed here for a week during the summer holidays and we loved it. The couple whom own the hotel were friendly and helpful. We were lucky with our room being at the front of the hotel so we had a beautiful view of the village through our sash windows (very useful in the heat of summer!)....

Slightly old-fashioned but very clean and comfortable accommodation. The hotel does not serve breakfast but the room prices reflect this. There is plenty of breakfast choice nearby at reasonable prices. There is a private car park opposite which is very useful in Polperro. The owners are charming and were very helpful with information/advice. There are a number of rules to...

For over 15 years we have stayed here at least once a year but on this occasion we were a little apprehensive returning. The reason being that although we had stayed here with Bill before we had more recently come to associate our stay with the warmth and friendliness that Apri and especially Corina had exuded. So it was with...

Thank you for your review and we note that you enjoyed your stay. The whole purpose of Bed on a Budget is to reduce costs and pass these saving directly on to our customers and so far we have been able to reduce our rate by almost £20 per night over the previous tariff. One of the changes is that...

I really enjoyed staying at this hotel. The location was great, in the centre of Polperro and just a couple of minutes stroll from the harbour. The owners were very friendly and helpful, and I loved the hotel itself. I stayed in two rooms over the course of my stay having made two separate bookings, the largest, number 11, was...

We returned to the Claremont for a weekend at the end of July, having last visited in 2012. Along with previous visitors, we were concerned that the previous management had left and that the hotel now operated a "bed on a budget" policy. We need not have worried. The level of cleanliness is the same if not better than before...

The hotel is right in the centre of Polperro with a free car park which is definitely worth having and very easy to access. We liked the no breakfast policy as we don't need a cooked breakfast each morning and it was easy to prepare your own food in the room. If you did want a cooked meal there are...
