The standard of the hotel was impeccable; there was no compromise on the furnishings or décor. The breakfast was also first class, and very well presented. If you don’t mind been up a hill the location is also great, about 10/15 walk into the main town.
The one and only thing that let the hotel down was the school mistress attitude by the owner. I am a professional women in my 40’s who has been in the travel industry for over 26 years and have travelled extensively, yet I have never been given such a list of do’s and don’ts in any hotels around the world. To add to this there were framed notices everywhere just in case you did not have chance to read the war and peace booklet at check in. did not feel relaxed while we were in the hotel, yet our friends who stayed in the hotel two doors down where invited in like old friends by their host, hence we spent our time and money in their hotel.
For this reason only I would not return to the Carlton
