My partner and myself returned for a 3 night stay this September, as we had enjoyed it so much last year. Once again, Claremont Hotel and the lovely cheerful helpful Carina helped make our Polperro experience perfect. We had everything we needed, a lovely clean room, very comfortable bed, delicious breakfast, faultless hospitality, with the added benefit of free parking...

I don't usually write reviews but after our 3rd visit to the Claremont I thought I should share our wonderful holiday experience. We first visited the Claremont as a couple 3 years ago and we enjoyed it so much that we took my parents for the following 2 years, they also loved the hotel and Carina. We totally agree with...

We popped into the Claremont hotel for a cream tea while visiting Polperro. We sat on the balcony with our dogs and were made to feel very welcome by the lovely Hungarian lady. I had to leave a review for this as I think this was the cheapest price for a cream tea in Polperro and probably the best. We...

My partner & I recently stayed at the Claremont Hotel in Polperro, we visited Polpero for the day and decided we would like to stay a few days as my partner fell in love with the village. We had not booked anywhere and we popped into the Claremont just on the off chance. The owner was lovely, always smiling and...

Thank you so much for your review and your very kind words and comments. Polperro is a wonderful village and so easy to fall in love with as we did when we first came here. Many of our guests just come to Polperro for brief visit and then like you decide to stay for a few days and many become...

My wife and I stayed at the Claremont Hotel for a weekend at the beginning of July. From the time I phoned to book the room to the time we left, Carina could not do enough for us. Nothing was too much trouble and she always went about her business with a smile. She really made us feel welcome. Some...

My husband and I have just returned from a long weekend break in Polperro. We had a lovely room overlooking the road. As very little traffic passes down the road, this was not a problem at all. Breakfast was lovely, I ordered poached eggs and bacon every day and these were cooked to perfection and served on hot plates, which...

We have just read the two latest reviews, yours being the first and it has made us both very happy.

We were travelling through England and were told to go to Polperro. We booked in with this very friendly welcoming young woman. She made our stay a joy.

Great location for this hotel in Polperro and has it's own car park for residents too. Saves trudging up and down the big hill or getting the trolley bus with your suitcases. Although the buses are fun ! Friendly service and very clean rooms, although slightly dated but completely in keeping with other hotels and Inns in the area. The...
