“Excellent Value”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

Arrived at 11am , parked the car next to the hotel wall in the front car park, handed in the keys and got a receipt.We had a look in the Dining Room and by chance were allowed to select our table in the front area. We went for a stroll, had some lunch and then efficiently booked in around 2pm. The room was a bit on the small side for a twin so we enquired about free rooms and were immediately offered a swap to 117 (family room) which was roomy, well furnished and included a very good Flat Screen TV. The bathroom wasn't over large but wasn't a problem. The room was cleaned each morning.
Our first trip to the Dining Room and a browse of the Menu showed an excellent selection of Starters & Mains which continued throughout our stay. The portions were very good and the quality was excellent. A selection of hot & cold sweets were offered buffet style.
Breakfasts were buffet style and you made your own portion size from continually refreshed trays of good breakfast fare.
The All Inclusive deal included a light lunch which we had twice, a soup, roll and salad with a main meal; we had shepherds pie & chicken curry.
Drinks were available throughout the day with achohol served from 11am to 12 midnight, surely enough for anyone on the All Inclusive deal!!
Various forms of entertainment are available during the day as are two coach trips to Fleetwood & Bingo, we took part in Millionaire, Pub Quiz & Darts and won a box of chocolates, a bottle of wine and 1000 Choice points.
The entertainment after the games of Bingo (good cash prizes but expensive) was two spots of 45minutes each night, there were six singers all of adequate standard and two excellent comedians. The compere/ DJ wasn't as funny as he thought he was and was very repetitive over the 4 nights, however he seemed well received by the majority.
All the staff we encountered were very pleasant and efficient and we have already booked a return visit in August.
A tip to the travellers who moan about trivial problems, report them and they get sorted. The report from the bloke from Manchester is so factually incorrect that you can disregard everything he wrote in his 'Worst Hotel' nonsense.

48 members from Blackley Golf Club, Manchester. From 5th May for 4 days, all inclusive.
Right from the first day we were made welcome by the friendly staff.We did not have a problem with parking due to the many vehicles we used. The food and choice of menu was excellent along with staff. The all inclusive deal was the best ever for a group of golfers and our stay was made all the more friendly by the staff not only at reception ,but those in the restaurant.If possible, we will return next year.

Room Tip: Large sea view rooms on 1st floor,,

My Wife and Myself had a good four days and nights here for £190 all inclusive it was great we had a Sea-view room was small but would advise you get a larger room with a Sea view , the toilet was a bit small but room was always clean , as I said we had a great time you cannot fault the food here you can have Tea ,Coffee all day a lunch if you wanted at 12-30 till1-30 Drinks from 11am till 12 midnight the Bingo at 8pm is dear but the payout is very good and the Cabaret is good and the Staff are great in the Restaurant as they are all over as I said we really had a great time hope this review is helpful.

We held our wedding reception at the Claremont Hotel on 29/03/2014 and I would like to thank the Marcus, Agnieska and all the staff for making our day so fantastic . Everything from the decoration of the room, the wedding breakfast /buffet at night and the 5 star service we received was superb.

We had booked a large number of friends and family in the hotel for the all-inclusive weekend as well as the wedding and although the hotel was extremely busy ourselves and our guests were made to feel extra special throughout the two days.

All our guests not only the ones who stayed at the hotel commented on how exceptional the food was and the friendliness and professionalism of the staff and are still talking about what a fantastic day it was, largely down to the hotel and its staff . In fact because it was so good a friend of ours has booked in for her Pearl Wedding celebrations along with us and a number of other friends

Myself and Mark could not have wished for a better day or venue and when we remember our wedding day we remember it as the best day of our lives and this is largely down to the hotel and its staff. We had very little to organise the hotel did it for us and because of this we could relax and enjoy the day.

I would recommend this as a venue for a wedding or any type of celebration. It is a fantastic hotel and great value for money. We have attended weddings at 5 star hotels that have obviously cost a lot of money but none have matched the quality of the meals , the service and treatment ourselves and our guests received at the Claremont .

Thank you again

Cath and Mark

I have stayed at the Claremont a couple of times and have not been dissapointed with the hotel or the service and the rooms provided. I have been with my partner and his daughter and father in law and we are going back in july for a long weekend on a AI which is good value for money. The food is delicious breakfast lunch evening meal and all drinks included, you have to pay a little extra for some drinks and beers like a extra £1.00 for a pint of samiguel but i could not fault it.

They have entertainment both evenings(some comedians are a bit blue so if you have young children be careful) and childrens activities and a swimming pool.
You even get your rooms cleaned daily with fresh towels and tea and coffee in rooms. The only downside is the size of the bathroom,it is tiny and very difficult to manover but for me not a problem but for my father-in -law he found it quiet difficult but its doable.

My tip would be to have a seaview if possible, the hotel is very hot and the internal rooms apparently are quite closterfobic but thats my preference.
If you book to stay you will not be disapionted i'm sure.

Room Tip: Book a seaview room for more comfort and views.

We stayed in this hotel for 5 nights on the all inclusive and what can i say well first of all what a very friendly hotel this is. We arrived at the hotel on sunday morning at 10am and got a parking space we checked in to the hotel was given all our bands and was told our rooms would be ready anytime after 12 o'clock so we went about our day and went back after 12. the staff were very helpful with anything we asked the hotel was clean and tidy the rooms were OK although our room was very hot all the time and if we opened the window all we could hear was the fan on the roof but this didn't put us off. The food at this hotel is outstanding the waiter/waitress were very pleasant and there as soon as we went in to greet us. the all inclusive is good although i would like to see a cider on the all inclusive as this has to be payed for but at he good price of £1. the bar staff were all very nice and were very busy but always give everyone a smile. The entertainment was really good Ryan the hotel compare very good and very funny the bingo was really good with good prize money every time. Me and my husband stayed here with my family 5 being in are party and we all really enjoyed our stay that we booked again for November.

Room Tip: some of the rooms are facing 4 walls and its not a nice view but if you look it how we looked at it...
