We popped into the Claremont hotel for a cream tea while visiting Polperro. We sat on the balcony with our dogs and were made to feel very welcome by the lovely Hungarian lady. I had to leave a review for this as I think this was the cheapest price for a cream tea in Polperro and probably the best. We... More

My husband and I have just returned from a long weekend break in Polperro. We had a lovely room overlooking the road. As very little traffic passes down the road, this was not a problem at all.
