This was my 6th or 7th stay at The Claremont and as always, there was nothing you could fault about the place. I was staying in room 12 this time, right at the top of the hotel, "The Crow's Nest" as the owners call it. It is a beautifully renovated room, with quality wood panelling throughout, and is accessed from the second floor. You enter the door, whereupon there is a small bathroom with bathtub and shower immediately on the left, after which the stairs turn through 90 degrees, and climb up to the room itself.
I have to say that it is probably the quirkiest room I have ever stayed in, perfectly self-contained, with separate WC area and wash basin in the room, a small writing area, plenty of floor space and storage, and a large window that affords a view across the rooftops of the village.
Having stayed in most of the rooms, I have to say that the double bed in room 12 is the most comfortable one I have slept in and of course, being right up in the rafters, albeit everything is beautifully panelled away from sight, it is warm and very quiet.
As usual, nothing was too much trouble for Carina and breakfast was always served quickly and with a smile ( as indeed everything is at the Claremont).
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and look forward to the next one.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. 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. Children under the age of six years are not normally accepted ... more less
