Lovely designed motel rooms - we stayed in the cheapest studio yet it was well laid out with a mezzanine floor giving flexible living arrangements. Lovely area of Martinborough in a quiet location surrounded by countryside. Free Wifi but limited. We soon used it all up and Wifi is important to us. Great friendly and efficient staff. We will return.

Really friendly and helpful hosts and very comfortable and spacious accommodation within an easy 15 minute walk of the town square. In a rural setting the Claremont accommodation was clean and airy in a quiet rural atmosphere on the edge of the town. Recommended.

We stayed in a standard room for one night. Pluses included the extremely helpful and friendly staff, the useful information provided on the opening hours of all eateries in area, the peaceful location out of town with a field of sheep next door, the large size of the room including having the bedroom on a mezzanine level, the huge bed,...

Since taking over the business late last year we have started an upgrade for all the rooms, this does however take a bit of time. We do hope that on your next visit you...

We stayed for 2 nights in September. The Executive room was spacious, quiet and clean. The bed was comfortable. Frank provided information about local restaurants which we made use of. The room freshener was a little overwhelming so we popped it outside for the duration of our stay. The verandah was a great place to chill and listen to the...

Two of us stayed here for two nights over the weekend. There was one single bed downstairs in the sitting room and a double bed up on a mezzanine level, with a kitchen and bathroom downstairs. It is fairly basic accommodation but it was well appointed and exceptionally clean. There was a good supply of towels, shampoo's, tea, coffee etc....

We spent one night here in October 2016 (two adults and two children in a two-bedroom unit). It was excellent in all respects. The Claremont is about a 15-minute walk from the main square in Martinborough, or 1 minute by car. It has a country feel as it is at the end of the road and surrounded by countryside. I...

We stayed here and were given a room with two levels - with living space and an extra bed on the ground floor and a bed on the first. If was very spacious for the price we paid. The room was clean and functional, and I think it would work well for a longer stay (we only stayed for 1...
