What sets this place apart is the staff. They really do go that extra mile to make you feel special. The restaurant has all the touches and a decent chef that can make things however you like them. This is an excellent place and you should definitely call in for food and drink

I have loved this place for years, but WOW, lunch today was AMAZING! Best beef I think I have ever had on Island, a sentiment which was shared by our whole table. Staff could not have been more accommodating or helpful. This is how dining out should be!

They certainly have lifts internally... The access front the street might be the issue but I would encourage you to email or ring them... There is plenty of room in the restaurant and other common areas. Apologies for not replying sooner.

Is there parking
The Claremont will give you a parking disk. You can then park on the street for free displaying this disk. However, you must move your car every 2 hours (or 3, I can't remember). You can't just go out & change the time on the disk, you have to physically move your car to a new spot. After a certain time (8pm, I believe), you don't have to move it til the next morning. But it is a nuisance. There is no other parking, however. There is a no disk zone, but it is a few blocks away.

"ask for sea view"
"Rooms at the front have the sea views with comfy seats, and are cooler in sunny weather, but there is a supplement for them (£36 per day)."
"If you are there during their carnival across the street, ask for a quiet room but be ware some rooms are much smaller."
"Try to avid a room the gets late afternoon sun."
"Don't book rooms to the rear of the hotel!"
US$ 158 - US$ 258 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
