I work in the building industry as a shop fitter. As such my work is always away from home and I stay in different hotels every week. Over the past two weeks I have found a true diamond, the Carlton. From the moment you arrive to the moment you leave you are made to feel as you are an old...

Michael and his team were very welcoming. Food was top notch. The hotel is going through major refurbishment but it did not effect our stay there. If booking in the next 6-8 weeks ask to stay in one if the refurbished rooms. Jeff and Maria.

Horrible rooms not worth the money do yourself a favour and stay somewhere else. The owner has a real attitude when you complain and basically told us to go elsewhere knowing that it was a busy weekend and everywhere else was booked.

I'm visiting Ilfracombe for business and from the moment I stepped foot in the hotel after a very long journey I've been made to feel very welcome. I've just had a fabulous meal in the hotels restaurant where the chef prepared me a beautifully cooked fish dish (off menu as I was trying to be healthy!), and a fabulous Eaton...

Spent one night at the Carlton with my 2 adult sons and our 4-legged friend. The weather was absolutely freezing but the welcome we received, (dog included!), and the service thereafter was exemplary. We were made to feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. We had a twin room and a single and both were warm, comfortable and...

We stayed at the Carlton Hotel at the end of 2016, which also covered their New Year’s Eve package (Fantastic value for money!) and as the hotel is extremely dog friendly, our Staffie Cross Megan had a wonderful time too!
