Great location, friendly staff, great facilities... The rooms were well equipped and very comfy and quiet... indoor heated pool... I paid £26 for my room....honestly the standard was very high! I've stayed in campsites that were more expensive! parking is a slightly let down....limited spacing! first come first serve basis... Other than that GREAT!

Just had a four night break (8th to 12th May) on arriving at the Carrinton the reception staff were very helpful when she offered us a ground floor room we requested a high floor, was given 117. Looking around the room, yes it's a bit tired, in need of updating but so do all of the Brittania hotels. It was...

We've been to this hotel before and thought a night away would be lovely. Room was ok, albeit very noisy where we were. Unfortunately in the morning, nice bath before we leave, it would have taken a hour to have had enough water to even wash your toe! Have a shower instead, nothing like a cold shower to start your...

Having stayed only for one night we woke up to find no hot water! When trying to call reception we then discovered the phonelines did not work, so tried the direct number from a mobile, which again didn't work. Went to complain at reception and they seemed very uninterested by my complaint. Not a good stay!

I stayed here for 3 nights whilst working down in Bournemouth. I never pay personally for the rooms but if you're paying over £20 a night id stay away. The rooms & hallways are in urgent need of a refurb. The water out of the shower came out slower than a 3yr old dribbling. On a Thursday night from 2am...
