“wonderful weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

This was our 8th annual visit to the Claremont and yet again we were not disappointed. The staff were friendly - the room was fantastic - and the food was excellent. We cant wait for next November to come round!

Room Tip: We had room 212 and the view was perfect. We had comfortable furniture to sit in and we could just...

I only arrived at the hotel at midnight and had to leave at 6am but was really impressed. The Irish bloke at reception couldn't have been more helpful (not expected at that time) and the room was gorgeous. Recently refurbished and very tasteful with a luxurious feel to it in terms of decor, furnishings and lighting. The best bit was the bed. Lovely crisp white hotel bedding, thick duvet and a really comfy memory foam mattress. The best 4 hours sleep I've had for a while! Can't comment on the food which I didn't get chance to sample. My only regret is that I didn't get longer in that bed!

This is the second time I have stayed at The Claremont, and both times I have been very impressed. I have stayed at many other hotels in Douglas, and they are as dreary as Douglas itself, but the Claremont makes the trip much more enjoyable. Do not stay in room number 103 if you want any sleep as the lorries are loading/unloading right outside your window. However, I was upgraded for the following 2 nights so no complaints about noise again. Generally I thought the staff were friendly and very helpful when I asked to be moved, and the room I was upgraded to was excellent.

Room Tip: If you are booked into Room 103, ask to be moved immediately if you intend on sleeping.

we enjoyed a lovely 2 nights stay at this very conveniently placed hotel,situated on the promenade.We were able to upgrade to a sea view room on arrival as although the original room was nicely refurbished it was situated to the rear of the building.The room was spacious/exceptionly clean with a very large bathroom ( lovely aveda products) and was beautifully refurbished with large flat screen tv,glossly magazines,newspapers etc.Having stayed in a lot of 4 or 5 star hotels over the years what was notable at the claremont was the extremely high standard of service;the staff were extremely helpful,friendly,effiicient and nothing was too much trouble for them.We also had a lovely meal in the restaurant to celebrate a family birthday. On the downside the lobby/ reception area due for a makeover in the new year is a little disappointing on arrival and certainly does not reflect the rest of the hotel! I will certainly look forward to returning to the Claremont in the near future.

Room Tip: All rooms are nice/recently refurbished,but rooms to the front are more spacious and have the sea vi...
