The Claremont Hotel, Polperro, Cornwall tel: 01503 272241

Welcome to the Claremont Hotel

The Claremont Hotel is a privately owned and family run hotel centrally positioned in the heart of Polperro, offering very comfortable accommodation, and less than three minutes walk from what is probably the prettiest fishing harbour in south east Cornwall, if not in the whole county.

The Claremont Hotel faces south overlooking the valley and rooftops, and is ideally positioned for a short walk to all the village attractions and facilities.

The hotel and its accommodation has been modernised so that our guests enjoy the comfort that is expected these days, yet it still retains its character, as parts of the hotel date back to the17th century,when it was most probably a fisherman's cottage.

Please note that the Hotel does not have views over the harbour.

Bed on a Budget

With effect from 1st June 2016

Introducing a new concept in providing low cost accommodation.

Bed and Breakfast is being replaced by Bed on a Budget. Breakfast will not be served and will not be available. A saving on up to 20 per night over the previous Tariff.

A cooked breakfast is becoming a thing of the past as people are becoming more health conscious but when available, as on holiday, it tends to be eaten as it is included in the price. Also it is tempting to remain in bed so either forego the lie in or get up for breakfast. Now you can stay in bed as long as you wish knowing that you have already made a saving on not having breakfast.

Further savings have been made by reducing the amount of room service normally provided. In effect all this means is that we no longer change bed sheets and towels on a daily basis, however the bathmat will be changed each day, tea/coffee/milk will be topped up and your waste bin will be emptied each day. For stays of one week or more a full room service and change of bedding, towels etc will be carried out after 3 or 4 days at managers discretion. We have also reduced the reception hours and we no longer accept check-ins after 6.30pm and if guests do not arrive by 7pm the booking is classed as a no show and therefore cancelled. These cost savings in laundry, wages and materials are part of the cost reduction that Bed on a Budget is able to provide guests and the saving can enhance your holiday experience by using these cost savings as you wish.


This hotel is also For Sale. Genuine retirement sale as the owner is almost 72 years of age and now wants to retire. This very profitable business comes with two lock up shops, leased out, and a car park, very unusual in Polperro. This business has only had three owners in the past 90 years which is a strong indication of its success. The hotel is easily operated and can be run by a couple without the need to employ staff unless the new owner wants to expand the business by opening the Bar and Restaurant and doing cream teas. A great opportunity for a lifestyle change and at the same time have a very good income with the further opportunity to take extended breaks in the low season. Interested? Then send an email in the first instance to

NOTE: To alleviate any concern we confirm that there will be no drop in standards due to the intention to sell. Also it will be a condition precedent that in the event of a sale, before your stay is complete, that any and all bookings will be honoured as per the industry norm! W M & W S Smith Owners
