Travellers' Choice
Welcome to the Claremont Hotel. We are a small, privately-owned hotel centrally positioned in the heart of Polperro, less than three minutes walk from what is probably the prettiest fishing harbour in south east Cornwall. The Hotel faces south overlooking the valley and rooftops, and is ideally positioned for the village attractions and facilities. Please note: we are an exclusively adult-only 18+ hotel and we are dog-friendly in selected rooms.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

As the majority of other reviewers have summarised, Claremont provides superior accommodation in Polperro and is handy to access the local area (incl. Trenderway Farm, the wedding venue). One of the few Polperro venues providing: central location; free car parking; clean interiors; warm and pleasant, well maintained, perfectly laid-out [rooftop view] room; whoehearted breakfast; easy communications with management. Our visit coincided with very damp weather. Hence, it might seem unfair to comment on the strong smell of damp from the many dog-blankets/dog-towels available in the main reception area. One could be forgiven for observing this might be more of a 'dog-hotel which is very friendly towards humans'. Pleasantries aside, this is a lovely, well-run boutique hotel in a lovely part of the world.

Room Tip: Approach this as a dog-hotel which permits humans to stay, and you'll be absolutely fine.

The hotel is in an absolutely great place to explore Polperro, and to have its own car park was just wonderful. The two members of staff we met were very helpful and friendly. The room was ok, a bit on the small side, but certainly adequate. Tea and coffee facilities provided including some milk in the small fridge. What we hadn't realised when booking was the hotel's attitude towards dogs, with dog friendly rooms etc. Not sure if our room was in this category. We weren't very happy to be sitting in the small breakfast room with dogs.

Response from Juliet Jeffery, Owner at The Claremont Hotel
Responded 12 Nov 2023
Thank you for your positive comments. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay overall. Our Hotel, like many in the South West, is openly dog friendly. This is clearly displayed on all booking platforms, including Tripadvisor. We have many guests stay without dogs and they comment on how clean, fresh, and spotless the guest rooms and communal areas are.

Nothing to dislike. Super location, handy free car park, welcoming staff, lovely clean well-appointed room, great fresh breakfast choice produced to order, very dog friendly but require good behaviour understandably with list of rules. Close to the harbour and evening eating options but get there early in busy periods as booking is limited.

We were so pleased that we had chosen the Claremont Hotel for our annual week's holiday with good friends. The welcome was warm and friendly, setting the high standards we experienced from the happy team at the hotel throughout the week. They all went the extra mile to ensure our comfort and enjoyment. The hotel was exceptionally clean, a standard maintained by daily attention to our bedroom. The beds were extremely comfortable, with excellent facilities for guests. A complete change of bedding was offered during the week and, if guests wished, clean towels were available each day. The shared lounge area was spacious and comfortable with complimentary tea, coffee and hot chocolate on tap, together with a well-stocked honesty bar. A very wide choice of excellent food was available each day for breakfast, served promptly with a smile. Staff, accommodation and ambience made for a very relaxed week, by the end of which we had made new friends who could call us by name. When we next visit south Cornwall we shall be heading straight back to a fabulous hotel in the heart of one of the county's prettiest villages. Thank you. Keir and Mary
