Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a lovely stay the room was warm and cosy. The breakfast was really good great choice. We arrived early hoping to leave our cases in the hotel but they didn’t have a separate room to put them in we could have left them in the reception area but we didn’t feel that was very secure. So we went to park the car which was quite a walk from the hotel and covered them up in the boot. We didn’t go to the entertainment so can’t comment on that but the rest of the guests seemed to enjoy it. The hotel only opened on the day we arrived as we were moved from the royal Boston to the Carlton. There was some Christmas decorations but it definitely wasn’t very festive like some of the other hotels didn’t feel as though they had put much effort into making it festive for the time of year.

Sadly, we heard from Blackpool Promotions today that this hotel is closing indefinitely. We have been moved to the Royal Boston for our stay in October. Really liked the Royal Carlton, hope the staff are taken on in other BP hotels as they are all fabulous. Apparently closing as they can't get enough staff, despite active advertising, to cover the number of guests booked.

We did not stay for more than one hour. Just enough time to find another hotel. Not sure where to start. The reception is pokey. The dining room reminded me of school. The room was so small. The window was broken and wouldn't shut. We had particularly booked a room with a balcony which we got and it was a good size but so dirty. The table was covered in bird droppings that clearly had been there for some time. I do not understand how this is a 3 star hotel. Do yourself a favour and book somewhere else.

Hotel in good location. On the seafront between central and south pier. Small but adequate and clean bedrooms. Stairs leading to bedrooms smelt of cannibas. Self service breakfast was good. Shame hadn't got a games room. Staff were friendly and helpful

The location was very good right on the prom with a nice terrace for sitting out having a drink. When I arrived I had to wait a few minutes has nobody was on reception or in the bar area and it was mid afternoon. Once booked in the room was clean but very small with a view of a wall. The bed seemed to slope. The entertainment in the evening was ok but not many watching. The price of the room was good, location good but hotel needs a overall.

Love this hotel but it does need a major overhaul. There were a lot of complaints regarding double bookings and some rooms were not prepared for guests. Declan did his best to sort it all out. The staff are an asset to the hotel and at points were run off their feet. The entertainment was very good with a great crowd adding to the atmosphere. As for the food, Francis you are a star, food as usual was top notch. Great guy who makes sure everyone is well catered for. From breakfast to dinner he goes out of his way to make everyone happy in fact he is one of the main reasons we love going to this hotel. The Glasgow girls.

just back from another great time in the royal carlton hotel, staff are lovely, the bar staff can't do enough for you especially carina, what a lovely bubbly person she is, u can't fault the food in any way, buffet breakfast with plenty to choose from plus buffet dinner, omg the food is to die for, so much to choose from and Francis the chef is amazing, such a great guy, comes out, goes round every table to see if you have enough food, if nothing suits he will go make you something, chats to everyone, this man is an asset to this hotel, rooms are nice, not a big hotel which I like, bingo and guest artist on every night, Declan does a wee quiz and plays higher or lower with electronic cards which passes the time before bingo, all in all a great wee hotel, no complaints whatso ever.margaret and company.
