We have just returned from a week at this hotel. It was our fourth time and always lives up to expectations. Carina gave us the usual very warm welcome and she can't do enough to help her guests enjoy their stay. She is always bright and happy and so helpful. A very good cooked breakfast every day and the rooms...

If you like tired old hotels, plastic mattress covers, shampoo in sachet's, one soap between shower and basin, order what you want for breakfast the evening before (or get a low quality full english regardless) and pay for additional breakfast items as stated on menu card in room, no breakfast orders taken in the morning!!! Then you'll like it here,...

We are not surprised by your review, your first review was written after not even spending one night (removed by Tripadvisor as being inappropriate) and while still staying at our hotel. Most sensible people at least wait until their stay is complete before putting pen to paper in order to get a full and balanced opinion and not act immediately...

We have stayed at the Claremont several times and loved its uniqueness, location and friendly welcome. We now live in Polperro and one of our treats is to pop in for Carina's perfect cream teas.
