We stayed at the Claremont Hotel, never stayed in a bed on a budget before so was a little apprehensive, but on arrival greeted extremely well made totally welcome, every where REALLY clean, nothing was to much bother would totally recommend the Claremont. Also was nice that just down the road we could have had a cheaper English breakfast just by showing our room key, just to have the choice was nice it's not every day you want a full English yet we tend to eat it as we have paid for it. I am planning another trip to Cornwall will definitely rebook here.
Thanks for your email. I did enjoy my stay with you - the only thing that bothered me was the seagull noise at night which you really can't do anything about!
I thought the bed on a budget idea with no breakfast was great, especially as you kept our milk for us so that we could have muesli in the mornings. I would much rather pay less for the room and have no breakfast, as I would very rarely eat more than muesli anyway.
Thanks for being so friendly and helpful too. Hope to stay again for more gig rowing!
Thank you for your recent email regarding our stay at your hotel in Polperro. We have just returned to Canada after a very enjoyable month-long holiday in England. We went on from Polperro to other places in Cornwall, and in Hampshire and Wiltshire.
We enjoyed our stay at your hotel and in Polperro and we did not find the ?no breakfast and reduced room service? to be an inconvenience at all. We had no problem getting an excellent breakfast in the village. In fact, we felt that the reduced room tariff was a very good bargain indeed.
In terms of value for money, we felt that our stay at the Claremont was one of the very best during our stay.
We would definitely stay with you again.
We enjoyed meeting you and your wife and appreciated your hospitality and professionalism.
All the very best with your future plans.
Cheers and thanks again,
Hello Bill and Wancha
We enjoyed our recent stay at your hotel very much. The ?bed on a budget? system worked very well for us as we rarely eat a cooked breakfast and are generally tidy people so do not really need a daily room service. The reduced room price meant that we could choice when and where we had breakfast and still be in pocket. I will put a favourable review on Tripadvisor when I have time.
We had a lovely time staying with yourselves last weekend and would certainly recommend you to our friends and family, and certainly stay with you if we come to Polperro again. We found the reduced rate for no breakfast very good as it meant we didn't have to rush to have breakfast and could take our time and decide when we wanted to eat, which on both occasions was later that morning.
Thank you very much for your hospitality and we will hopefully see you again soon.
I recently booked two rooms at the Claremont for myself and my mother. Everything was excellent - the rooms had everything we could possibly need and were very comfortable. We particularly liked that we didn't have to eat a huge cooked breakfast each morning as we are not big breakfast eaters! It was easy to prepare our own breakfast in the room but also places close by if you felt you needed a cooked breakfast. I would definitely return here. Free car park was also excellent and easy to use. Thank you. Suzanne Browning.
Polperromrbazmrbazr my family a home from home as my grandmother lived there for many years. Bill and Wancha are a lovely couple and made us most welcome and nothing was too much trouble. We liked the idea of room only. Our room was clean and comftable and excellent value. Would definitely consider coming back
My wife and I booked a late holiday at the end of September 2015. What a wonderful week we had, not only was the weather glorious but the stay at The Claremont Hotel really did make our week special.
We have stayed in Polperro previously but this was the first time at the Claremont.
Brilliant choice. The warm way I was greeted and dealt with when I booked bode well for our stay. But upon our arrival what a surprise!
It's the first time I have ever experienced a host actually come out of the hotel to meet and greet with such big smiles and laughter. The warmth of our welcome continues for the whole week. What a wonderful and delightful change in this daya nd age when in many establishments you tend to be treated like cattle pasing through.
Every morning, the same big smile greeted us at breakfast. The breakfast itself was excellent, plenty to eat, hot, freshly cooked and served swiftly.
The hotel itself is situated in an old cottage but it is very clean, airy well furnished. The room we had was well appointed s[pacious and clean. There was clear evidence that every day care had been taken to make our stay special. Some may critise the mix of decor and furnishings but bot my wife and I believe it gives the hotel a distinct homely feel about it not clinical like so many hotel-chain type establishments.
It was obvious talking to other guests that hey were repeat customers so that speaks for itself.
As for my wife and I staying at this hotel agian in the future? You bet we will - if we can get in when they have a reservation. It is a busy hotel and I can see why with the quality and warmth of service we received.
Thank You for a wonderful week.
Had a wonderful few days in polperro in early July and it couldn't have been better...Sunshine, meeting lovely people and staying in a one of the best hotels we could ever wish for. Carina, who runs the hotel, is fantastic....She makes sure your stay is so comfortable and relaxed and with her wonderful personality and beautiful smile you couldn't help but be happy....We would recommend anyone to stay there and we will definitely be going back. Thanks Carina.. And thank you so much for my lovely porridge...😄xx
We have just returned from yet another lovely stay at The Claremont. Thank you Carina and Arpi for making it so enjoyable. Carina's bubbly personality and caring attitude makes us feel very welcome every time, and her hard work and attention to detail makes sure we are comfortable. Our room is always clean and the beds are really comfortable. Arpi cooks a great breakfast and I love the way the flowers they so carefully nurture make the hotel look so attractive! Carina and Arpi - you are amazing!!!
Me and my wife stayed for a short break of 3 nights in early June and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay.
We have visited Polperro a number of times over the years and always said how nice the hotel looked from the outside and how we would like to stay there. Well this year we did and we have found a little gem here. The rooms are comfortable and welcoming, the meals excellent and the service is 5star without a doubt. Carina is the perfect host and we loved our time there. All I can really say now is bring on next year!
We have just got home after a 3 day stay at the Claremont-our 5th over the past 4 years. Carina is so welcoming and friendly. Nothing is too much trouble for her. Guests are treated as friends. Lovely cooked breakfast. Clean rooms. Free parking opposite the hotel which is most unusual in Polperro.
Idelly situated for walks or boat trips to Looe and Foweyor
Yet again a lovely stay at the Claremont hotel thanks to Carina and Arpi. We are looking forward to seeing you again in the near future.
Keep eating the chocolate and keep up the good work.
P.S. Thanks again for the cherry cakes.
well just back from a un planned over night stay at the claremont , all i can say is everything we have read is true carina is lovely , and the hotel is too . had a nice but brief stay and will certainly try to go back asap thanks again weather was great too added bonus
Wonderful,Wonderful,Wonderful. We've stayed here more times than we can remember now and will always continue to stay at the Claremont. Thanks for another great few days and as always,its been perfect. We would thoroughly recommend this hotel and Carina and Arpad will always go out of their way to make your stay a memorable one. Thank you and see you both again soon. Lisa and Julian.
Carina and Arpi. Thank you once again for a fantastic few days. Weather may not have been great but your smile and your infectious laughter Carina, are worth weeks of sunshine. Food and service great, as usual. Hope you can put the sign out soon - ' GONE FISHING! '
Thank you so much for making our stays during 2013 at the Claremont Hotel so enjoyable. Always a warm welcome,lovely breakfast and comfy and clean rooms, we look forward to be back in the New year.
Wishing you both a Merry Christmas and a Happy new Year
The Fealey's and the Jones's visited in 2011 for the fantastic fireworks display. We came back in 2012 for the same reason and guess what we have just returned again in 2013.
The display was cancelled because of stormy weather but we still had a great time.
The real reason we go every year is to stay at the Claremont and be welcomed by the lovely Carina and her smile
It's true!! Carina has the most beautiful smile in Cornwall! We have stayed in many hotels but have never been greeted by someone with such a lovely personality. The breakfasts were lovely,the room absolutely spotless and we loved every minute of our 3 night stay. Polperro has always been special to us but after staying at the Claremont it means even more. X
Carina, what a wonderful person you are. You made our stay at the Claremont so special. John had just come out of hospital after a nastly appendix operation. It was my birthday week and our wedding anniversary, so plenty to celebrate. Your hotel is lovely, super clean, breakfast was piping hot with plenty to choose from. Your lovely smile and welcome brightened our day from the start. Thankyou so much, we will definitely be back next year (To enjoy your lovely scones again)x Have already recommended you to our friends.
We have just come back after a one week stay at this hotel. This was our fourth visit and Carina gave us her usual very warm welcome. There is secure parking opposite the hotel, the rooms are always spotless, we have a really good cooked breakfast(thanks Arpi) every day with toast and tea/coffee topups. Carina can't do enough to help and she is always so polite and happy. In the evenings you can sit on the terrace, bring your own wine-Carina will give you glasses-and you can watch the world go by. Thank you Carina and Arpi.We will be back next year.
thanks for the wonderful hospitality on our recent stay.
lovely hotel, great hosts we will certainly come back.
thankyou carina and apri for the lovely time on our 30th wedding anniversary. we had four nights 14th-17th july from arrival to departure we had every thing you need for a special time away. can,t fault this place tidy ,clean, great food and carina,s giggles and easy nature with the guests was a joy to see.love these guys thankyou xx
Home after our stay with Carina and Arpi. You will never find a host as Carina, caring, helpful, and a pleasure to be with. The Hotel is spotless, a credit to the two of them, no extra staff only Carina and Arpi. Your Hungarian cake was wonderful and your scones were exceptional, I wish we could stay more often with you. Take care, your adopted Welsh Mum, don't forget, come and visit us any time, won't cost you a penny, so try and get a few days off in your quiet season. xxx
Just spent a lovely week at the Claremont. this was our second year.once again Carina made our stay very enjoyable. her personalty always shines through.always there to help at any time. both carina and arpi made our stay so enjoyable. hope to return again in the near future. thanks to you both. Mal/ Pat knowles. Richard Mc naughton
Its the time of year where the Anniversaries are less than pleasant so I wanted an escape and Polperro has always been that to/for me and combine that with Carina at the Claremont and it really doesn't get much better The only thing that caused regret was leaving but that smile sure helped with that too
I cannot praise the receptionist enough. She was fantastic. We arrived late in the evening and at very short notice and she gave us a extremely warm welcome, probably one of the warmest welcomes we've had in a hotel. The hotel is lovely and very clean. We even stayed an extra night. We will definitely be visiting again.
Our third visit and definitely not our last. Carina and Arpi have everything just perfect. Nothing is too much trouble for them. Thank you for looking after all 13 of us once again!! xxx
hi carina & arpi thanks for the lovely 60 birthday card you gave to me while we were down there in march it brings back memories when i was growing up thanks again see you in may all the best and lots of love and kisses love geoff
We have just spent easter weekend at the claremont our 1st time here although having been to polperro numerous times.Couldnt of asked for a better service,nothing was to much trouble,lovely clean room,breakfast was fantastic,carpark a real bonus.Look forward to returning soon.
Just got back from a fantastic time here, its the 3rd time we have stayed here and could not fault it, thanks for a lovely stay and making us feel welcome, nothing is too much trouble.
We have just got home after a long weekend spent at the Claremont Hotel. Carina was so friendly and couldn't do enough for us. The Hotel is spotless - I dare anyone to find a speck of dust anywhere. We will definitely go back again later in the year.
We love Polperro and we love this hotel! Our 4th stay in September and we are coming back next March. Karina is wonderful, always welcoming and smiling, nothing too much trouble. Arpi cooks absolutely delicious breakfasts! Thank you both for making our special bit of Cornwall even better
Alan, Trish, Derek and Vicky had such a great stay during the Guy Fawkes Display in 2011, were coming back again to see the fireworks in 2012.
If we are honest the real reason is the special Breakfast and the welcome, the fireworks are an additional reason for coming back.
The Fealey's and the Jones's.
Has taken me a long time to to comment but "better late than never."
I have had two short stays at the CLAREMONT and have nothing but good memories. This is mainly due to the hard work of Carina.She is always very busy but never fails to be available when you need her.
Hope to be back soon. Thanks for making my stay so relaxing.
We have just spent a wonderful 5 days at the Claremont for our silver wedding anniversary, 17/9/12 to 21/9/12. I can honestly say it was one of the best breaks we have had. Carina was just so lovely for the whole time we were there, from meeting us in the car park, coming from behind the front desk to open the door for us if she saw us coming up the steps, to her happy and cheerful welcome every morning at breakfast. Always smiling and laughing, nothing was too much trouble. Cooked breakfasts always seem more enjoyable when you're on holiday and that was certainly true here, perfectly cooked by Arpi every day, lovely!! As said by others the hotel is spotless and the car park straight across the road really is a big bonus. The harbour is just a 5 min walk from the hotel too. We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Polperro. A lovely place with lovely people. A big thank you to Carina and Arpi for making our special occasion even nicer. We really do want to come back and see you again soon. John and Linda.
thank you Carina and Arpi for a wonderful stay Derek and Diana room 8 we will be back so see you both again very soon .
Just returned from a 3 night stay, 17/8/12 - 19/8/12. We were a party of 8, on motorbikes which often does not receive a warm welcome, but not the case here. We could not have received a better welcome and Carina has the biggest smile in Cornwall - always happy and works very hard to make your stay a happy one. Hotel could not have been better - spotlessly clean and comfortable, in keeping with the area, and a free car park which is a big bonus. Breakfast was plentiful and absolutely delicious. Would definately recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Polperro and hope to return in the future. Thank you for making our stay an excellent experience.
Thank you for your warm welcome, Carina & Arpi.
Our stay at The Claremont Hotel was very enjoyable. The breakfasts were fabulous and the cream tea was the best.
I would gladly recommend a stay at the Claremont where you are made to feel special.
A big thank you
Just returned from a brilliant stay at The Claremont Hotel,30th July to 3rd Aug 2012. We had a wonderful time there,we would certainly recommend it to anyone thinking of making a reservation. We were really looked after by Carina who is just a lovely,happy girl who can't do enough for her visitors. Breakfast was gorgeous every morning and the jam and clotted cream scones with a pot of tea or coffee on the patio is highly recommended ! Hotel is kept beautifully clean and tidy and parking right outside the hotel is really convenient.Hope to see Carina next year,thankyou for a wonderful stay !
Visited in July 2012. Very hot and sunny. Can't fault this great hotel, lovely location, very clean and fabulous breakfasts. Carina was a delight and made the visit so much more enjoyable. Hope to return but not sure when. Wished I lived in England again just so I could visit more often
We have just returned from a wonderful 5 days at the Claremont. This was our third visit and we were welcomed like old friends by Carina. Always happy and friendly she makes our stay a real pleasure. Spotlessly clean rooms and a great cooked breakfast by Arpi. Free parking and sunshine every day. Fantastic!
We have recently returned from a four day visit to The Claremont Hotel. The weather could have been better, but the welcome from Carina could not. From the moment we walked into the hotel we were greeted with a wonderful smile of welcome, and this stayed until we waved goodbye. The breakfasts cooked each day by Arpi were superb and we have never had food presented so hot before. Carina's happy personality and the hard work of both of them, providing us with clean towels and room services each day, made our trip memorable. The cream teas were excellent!! Thank you both for making our visit so enjoyable.
Best wishes to you both,
Maureen and Mike Griffiths.
Thankyou for a lovely stay at the Claremont Hotel. Very friendly and comfortable stay. Our girls loved it and we were made to feel very welcome. Nothing seemed too much trouble - great hosts who obviously work very hard. Great breakfasts and free car parking!
We would like to say a massive thank you to Carine and Arpi for a truly fantastic stay at the Claremont. We were made to feel really welcome and Carine did not stop smiling. They both worked tirelessly to make out stay wonderful. The breakfast was excellent and the afternoon cream tea the best we have ever had. Thank you both so much for making our break so special. We will be back Love Mat and Ali (Room 10).

We stayed last year and had a lovely week looked after by Carina. The food was great and the hotel was spotlessly clean. I'm sure we'll be back!!
Thank you Carina and Arpi for another amazing stay. We had a lovely time. Hotel is kept spotless by Carina and Arpi's breakfasts are to die for! See you again soon. x
Had an amazing time last October for our wedding anniversary, Carina was so helpful and friendly. The breakfast was excellent and we loved the room. Cannot wait to return! See you in 9 days for more of the same!
Thank you Carina for making our short 3 day stay in Polperro so relaxing. Although we never met Arvi his breakfasts wwere supurb. We will definately see you both later in the Year. Chas and Debbie Brighton
just returned from another short break at the claremont which flew by sadly.Carina as usual gave us the most fantastic welcome,she works so hard to make your stay special. Cant wait to return in the autumn.
Thanks to Carina and Arpi who managed to make our stay special again. A great welcome from Carina, who always remembers us, and if you can believe it, was even happier and more excited than usual, because her mum is here on her first visit in five years. Hope you have a good year, see you in the Autumn

We have stayed at this hotel twice now and it is fantastic, we will be coming back again in 2012 for a long weekend. Clean tidy and the breakfast is lovely and the owners are so welcoming.

Where to go only one place the claremont hotel where we are treated with the most fantastic welcome and looked after so very well.This is our second visit this year and looking forward to our third in november and we have also booked next years hol in june.The hotel is lovely the rooms are kept to the highest standards and the breakfast is superb.Corina and arpi are the best hosts you would want to meet i would reccomend this hotel to everyone well done corina and arpi keep up the the good work.
Jean,John,Susan and Gethin"The Caerphilly Crowd" 22.08.11. Having just returned from our umpteenth visit;we could'nt work out how many times we've visited; we still cannot believe that a hotel service could be so consistent.Nothing changes,the rooms are always clean and well presented,the breakfasts always fresh and appetizing.The only change seems to be in CARINA, her once infectious smile and enthusiasm seems to increase every visit.Both CARINA and ARPI cannot do enough for you even though their days must surely be long and tiring.They have always made us feel one of the family and judging by the comments of other guests we are not alone.On the rare occasion we,ve made a request Carina acts immediately to satisfy our requirements, you never have to wait.Having stayed in many hotels and B&Bs some very expensive we,ve never experienced such service or warmer welcome.We look forward to our next visit hoping it will be sooner than later.TO CARINA and ARPI our sincere thanks, and remember both ,It,s not a crime to take the odd day off.
What an enjoyable stay, Carina is an exceptional young lady, didn't meet Arvi, but his food was great. We have been touring UK for four weeks and this place is No 1. We are the second visitors from our family and although it is unlikely we will be back, too old,too far, our daughter will be. We all love the place. Carina, Australia needs you.
Hi to anybody new reading this Visitors' Book to find out about the Claremont. Just read all the other entries and you will realise that this is the place to stay in Polperro. Carina is a one off - sunny personality and an infectious giggle that will make your stay so enjoyable and Harpi who is rarely seen but works very hard and serves up a great breakfast. A great young couple who work so hard deserve to be successful. So book up and enjoy the experience.
We had a wonderfull 3 days at the Claremont every thing was more than we had expected,very clean-room was amazing-breakfast superb and the staff excelent we shall return
Thank you so much.
Andy & Carol.
Hi Carina and Arpi Yet again our lovely holiday lived up to our high expectations because of you. The weather was mixed but your sunny smile made up for that. We`ve got to know you even more this visit, it was so lovely seeing pictures of your family who obviously mean everything to you. We wish you success and happiness for the future. You certainly deserve it. We don`t know of another young couple your age who work as hard as you two do. Don`t forget my advice to you Carina - occasionally take some time off from work to enjoy yourselves xx
You have so many wonderful reviews, I can't say any more than everyone else, it is our pleasure to come and stay with you. The whole set up of your Hotel suits us and our friends, you know we enjoy the use of your Terrace with a little couple of drinks!!! Look forward to seeing you and Arpi next year. Take care of yourselves. (xxx)
We have just returned from a week at the Claremont our 4th visit and as usual the room was spotless and service second to none.
Carina & Arpi are great hosts and make you feel more like freinds than customers her cheerful smile and giggle livens up your day and Arpi is always there to help with the bags and anything else you need.
Just to finish a lot of more mature B&B owners could learn a lot from this young couple.
Thank you Carina & Arpi for making our 4th stay with you as pleasant as ever, look forward to seeing you again.
Mike & Teresa Liverpool
Thank you Carina for the warm and friendly welcome that you gave us, which helped make our stay in Polperro even more memorable.
e have just spent 10 glorious days at the claremont. the weather wasn't always good but the stay was excellent. This young couple excell in everything they do to make your stay effortless.Carina is a breath of fesh air and arpi always behind the scenes is very much the backbone.They have a great working relationship and also a partnership thaks guys for making our honeymoon so very special.Can not wait till we see you both again xxx
24.6.2011 Hi Carina and Arpi, we had a wonderful week being looked after by you and are grateful for all your help. Pat and John
Great B&B. Clean. Good Breakfast. Friendly reception. Good value. What more could you want?
Having read several entries in the Visitors Book i see its going to be difficult to add much to their Reviews. And sign up to the Carina Fan Club after you hazve walked up or down the hill to the Hotel to be met by that lovely smile makes most things better. And what's more you are left in very little doubt its genuine not the usual Official Smile Chain hotels provide. And if you see it slip at any point it will be as rare as the "hens teeth" people quote. Oh and there's the blush too that appears when compliments made to about her
Just back from 4 days in Polperro - weather was brilliant. Hotel clean & pleasant and we were met by the lovely and friendly Karina with her infectious laughter! She was extremely helpful in pointing me in the right direction to get a surprise birthday cake for my daughter. We would definitely go back & stay & only disappointed we didnt get to try her cream teas. She was so easy going and always a beautiful smile on her face and how lovely to be allowed to bring our own alcohol into the hotel - not many places would do that.It takes a lot to impress our teenage daughter but Karina won her over!
Carina looked after us with her endless smile and sunny disposition..nothing was too much trouble. She and her partner work very hard to ensure that we had an enjoyable stay. The lack of a bar and dinner restaurant is not a problem as there are numerous places within walking distance to eat and drink. (they will also chill your own drinks and / or provide glasses if required...how many hotels will do that?) The car park opposite the hotel is also a bonus in Polperro, which is mostly car free, unless you have an allocated space. The Breakfast time slot is short but practical for all concerned, and the full English was beautifully cooked and presented. We will return
I had a genuine and warm welcome at the Claremont Hotel. Carina and Arpi, the young couple who have the hotel in charge, are really friendly and helpful, Carina has a wonderful smile all day long, she looks after you and makes you feel at home. English breakfasts are freshly cooked and delicious. The rooms are very clean and towels changed everyday, and the bed was very comfortable. The hotel is in the middle of the village, and it's very nice to have a free car park right opposite the hotel. Polperro is a pretty fishing village, with a few nice restaurants, not too expensive,
It was a real pleasure to stay there, I highly recommend it, and I'm looking forward to going back, as soon as I can. I wish Carina and Arpi good luck, and the best for the future.
nice room nice hotel fantasic breakfast and car parking right in the centre which is cctv monitored is a great bonus.cannot fault it for the price. a great centre for exploring this bit of cornwall.
Room Tip: room with a bath if you are doing any long walks
just had 3 nights here, we were very pleased with the services, and breakfast, karina was really helpful and a delightful person very hard working and nothing was too much trouble for her. We were unlucky with the weather but that is life.plenty of hot water very clean couldn't have been better.Food at treble cafe excellent.
Hi - I am definitely delighted to discove this. Good job!
Anyone thinking of booking a holiday at this superb hotel WILL NOT be disappointed.It is situated in the heart of such a beautiful quaint village with so many friendly people.The rooms are spotless,the service is exceptional and the breakfast's are always cooked fresh and lovely and hot.You will be made to feel so welcome by Carina And Arpi and you wont want to leave by the end of your stay!! Great job guys and cant wait until next time. Lisa and Julian
Carina, thank you for a lovely 3 day stay. We had a brilliant time, breakfast was great. Room was nice and clean. Car park definitely a big bonus. Hope you enjoyed the couple of chocolates, and hope to see you again. Much appreciated. Paul Martyr.
We had a lovely time at The Claremont Hotel and enjoyed our warm,clean,comfortable stay and delicious cooked breakfast.
My boyfriend and I loved it and would highly recommend to anyone, as you are staying in the middle of the village with the biggest car park in Polperro.
Thank you for making our stay a wonderful one.
My girlfriend and I had an excellent few days at the Claremont. The room was clean and tidy and we were made to feel very welcome from start to finish. We will definately be coming back in the not too distant future.
After another recent stay - I think it's our 6th or 7th - I would like to say again that the Hotel is fantastic and Carina and Arpi are doing a wonderful job. Everything is spotless and nothing is too much trouble. The breakfasts are second to none and I highly recommend Carinas home made cream teas. They are the best I have ever tasted. We will definately be back for more as soon as we can! Good luck Carina and Arpi, you deserve it. Joanne and John Tudor.
Have just returned today, 31st July 2010, after a 4 day stay at the Claremont. Very clean room,a great cooked breakfast every day,free parking opposite the hotel and Carina always friendly and helpful. In the evenings you can eat your pasty/takeaway on the hotel terrace and if you have a bottle of wine Carina will provide glasses and ice. Very good value. We will visit again. Colin and Sandie
just come back after staying there for 25 to 27 july. what a lovely place. made to feel very welcome by karina and her lovely smile. a very clean place lovely home cooked food clean towels every day. an absolute joy to have stayed there, good luck to karina and her other half in making a success of this place they deserve it. will be coming back again. xxxx
We had the most perfect stay here and already planning our next visit.Would thoroughly recommend the Claremont Hotel and the service was more than superb.We could not fault anything.
Thank you,you really played a big part in our fantastic weeks holiday.
Lisa and Julian.
We had a great stay at the Claremont during July 2010.The hotel was in a prime location in Polperro,with the free carparking being a real plus.The rooms were comfortable,and spotlessly clean.The full english breakfasts were freshly cooked to order and were excellent.Karina & her Partner really gave 100% to make our stay perfect.We would stay there again & recommend it to friends.
Hi,corena and arpi.we were just thinking about you both and we still miss you.We had the most wonderful holiday there and we are hoping to come back next year.the hotel was wonderful and you both took real and genuine care of us it was the best holiday ever,I would urge anybody who wants a relaxing stay to go to the claremont.Steve and Joyce wish you both well.xxx
Just stayed in this hotel for 4 nights, the rooms and hotel were spotless clean, and the freshly cooked breakfast's were delicious. The Clarmemont is in a lovely spot together with free parking, which is a real bonus. Katrina and her partner are extremely helpful and obliging and plesant at all times, and nothing is to much trouble. We really do wish you all the success you deserve, and the very best for the future. Hope to visit and stay with you again. Very Best Wishes Margaret and John, (Cradley Heath, West Midlands).
Just returned from a great five day stay at this Hotel. Catrina and her partner were very welcoming, they keep the place spotless. Nothing was too much trouble, excellent location and free car parking. There is no Bar but the idea is that you take your own drinks, glasses, and ice are supplied for you whenever you need them, and the balcony is an ideal spot to have a great drink before venturing out to have a lovely meal in the village. Good luck Catrina you deserve to have a successful business, hope to stay in the future with you again. Avril and Byron Jones ( the Welsh group)
June 24, 2010 BiscuitBootle, Bootle
We stayed at the Claremont for 10 nights nothing to much trouble for the young couple that run it Catrina was asbsolutely lovely and never stops.
Okay this hotel isn't the Ritz but it's certainly not a rip off. Polpero is perhaps the most prettiest and authentic fishing village in Cornwall, but this authenticity comes with a price i.e lack of parking. With secure free parking right opposite and the hotel being situated in centre of the village you can not pick fault with it's location.
We were instantly greeted with a very pleasant girl behind the desk who made you feel very welcome, She even offered us help with our cases but it was only my stubborness for help that made me refuse it . The staircases are steep and narrow and can be tricky with large cases but with old buildings you have to expect this.
The room we had was spacious but also very clean perhaps the one of the cleanest rooms we had stayed in for this price range. The room was kept spotless and we had clean towels for every day of our stay. They even provided us with a safe for which you did not have to pay extra.
Breakfast although a little limited is very well cooked and as long as you show up in the time you do not feel as you are being rushed. You are always greeted with a smile which does add a plus to the experience.
Overall we had a very pleasant stay for the week and with the very friendly staff we felt that we really were geniunely welcome there. The only thing the hotel lacked was a bar which would of made it better, but with numerous pubs and resturants only a stones throw away you don't seem to mind. Besides there was a fridge so we could always bring in our own booze if we wanted.
First stay, very clean,comfortable, friendly and breakfast was lovely we will be back
I have stayed in this hotel in 1976. I was 12 then. I can see nothing has changed, not really. Amazing hotel. Am I correct in thinking there was an elder couple running the hotel at that time? They were so nice for our Family.************************************************************
Present Owners Note. Yes, as I understand it you are correct about the owners in 1976. The hotel was in the same ownership for about 40 to 50 years up to about 1985. Mr & Mrs Garner were the owners and when they retired their two daughters took took over with one of their husbands, the other daughter remained unmarried. They retired about 1985. They were very popular people and when I took over in 1997 they used to visit me each week, park in the hotel car park and collect their pension form Polperro Post office. They all lived to a ripe old age but all 3 passed away several years ago. I used to get many guests enquiring after them but less now for obvious reasons.
This was our first visit to Polperro and The Claremont for 16 years and nothing has changed much - which was exactly what we had hoped for.
Our wonderful memories of our previous stay were proven not to be wistful.
Polperro is a quintessential Cornish fishing village for Australian tourists and The Claremont adds to its charm.
All of the excellent reviews (on TripAdvisor) are correct - discount the others.
We just love it!!!
We are expats living abroad, and recently returned to England to see family and friends. Whilst there, we planned a short holiday in Polperro and stayed at The Claremont. Nothing was too much trouble for Bill, the proprietor, and his staff who were attentive, friendly and good fun. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and look forward to staying at the hotel again.
Just returned from the Claremont.
It is right in the heart of Polperro and with a free car park, which is right opposite the hotel.
Hotel is close to the harbour and lots of pubs,.
Service was superb nothing was to much trouble. You are given a key to the front door so you can come and go as you please.
Hotel is not the Ritz (but neither is the price) but very comfortable rooms with a great shower.
Breakfast was very good.
Overall very good value for money.
I would not hesitate to return.
