I booked through a central booking site based on facilities (as advertised) and availability.
My stay was only for one night and i found Carnson House to be OK in all honesty (i wish there were more ratings as although i don't think they were 'very good' i also think they were better then average so opted for the better rating.
LOCATION: Handy for the railway station, front, harbor and town centre - all with in walking distance.
PARKING: Advertised as free parking but not strictly accurate. The parking is free on a side street if you can find a space (which i did). Having said this i had to park on double yellow lines to unload my things and book in (risking a ticket) which wasn't ideal.
HOSTS: Rob was very friendly and helpful, even took me to find a parking space. Didn't really have much interaction with his wife though so can't comment.
BREAKFAST: Cereals and fruit juices available as well as choice of cooked breakfast. Tea, coffee and toast as required included. Couple of minor points with breakfast - Filter coffee was very weak and cheap sausage let the full nicely cooked breakfast down a little. All in all though a good breakfast.
THE ROOM: Small but adequate. The room was a double with en suite shower room and to be honest was an ok room. Bed was comfortable and the bedding was clean and good standard. The room had TV, Free Wifi, Hair Dryer, tea and coffee (and points for the Carnson over 5 star hotels I've stayed in - there was not just one sachet of everything which was great for a coffee addict .The room was very warm, and though on a main road i heard little traffic noise at all. The furniture was a little dated but not to the extent has been mentioned in other reviews though i would recommend getting rid of the hideous ceiling fan!
BATHROOM: En suite, spotlessly clean with towels (good quality i might add) and basic toiletries included
COST: maybe a tad expensive for a 3 star but again given the extras included it was ok for a one night stay.
ALL IN ALL: i never experienced any of the issues other reviewers have mentioned but maybe the reviews were taken on board and service improved upon
