My wife and I stayed here for one night with dinner and breakfast included and it was the perfect venue. Our room on the second floor had a great sea view plus it was spacious, clean and comfortable. The quality and presentation of the dinner was definitely five star plus and compliments must go to the chef and the attentiveness of the waiters. Breakfast was buffet service as usual but the food was of superior quality to many of our previous 3 or 4 Star hotel stays. All-in-all every aspect of our stay was excellent. One small point, we stayed on the second floor but we did notice that walking along the first floor was very creaky and may disturb some people if you have a room here.

Room Tip: Second floor best

We stayed here last weekend and found the hotel facilities very good. The location is perfect as a base with access to the town and beach although a little steep in places. We were given a large room at the front with a lovely sea view. Although the rooms are a little dated I think this added to the feel of this grand old hotel. The service was faultless, those boys and girls do work hard. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was lovely, the bar expensive and the reception staff more than helpful.

We have just returned from a one night stay booked through laterooms.com. We had booked a standard double with breakfast fro £89. The room was amazing - large and comfortable with armchairs in a lounge area, with a side view to the sea. Staff all welcoming and helpful, communal areas lovely and clean, leisure area small but perfectly adequate and the breakfast in the morning was fantastic. The only problem we encountered (which may have just been our room location) was the noise through the night. There was a constant banging of doors and heavy feet stamping around. We then had a couple arguing on the pavement outside our room at 3am (not the hotel's fault) and then the fire alarm went off at 6am. We got very little sleep, which was a shame as it was our first night away since our daughter was born 4 years ago and we were looking forward for a night of uninterrupted sleep!! However, the hotel was fabulous and we thoroughly enjoyed our room and all of the hotel's communal areas. Hopefully other rooms might be quieter!

Dank rooms, in need of a makeover, TV set has incomplete channels , eg no film 4 or itv4' which are basic freeview services. Resteraunt is like a morgue and something out of 1972, soft drinks come in the worlds smallest glasses.

Stayed here for 2 nights at the beginning of November. Previously we have stayed at the East Cliff and been quite satisfied. We thought we'd give the Carlton a try as the grounds look good and photos of the interior look impressive. The first night there was a storm with strong winds and rain, unfortunately sitting with my wife having a pre-dinner drink water started to flow into the cocktail bar from the ceiling. The bar staff had 6 or so ice buckets positioned around the bar and large trays with tablecloths in the bottom to absorb and deaden the sound. The bar had to be evacuated and from what I heard this situation had occurred before recently. The next day the carpet did smell quite badly and so we didn't use the bar area that night either. Apart from that the bedroom was fine, although there was a noisy fan outside and the air con was also a little noisy. Breakfast was very good, but dinner we thought disappointing. Pretty much rosette style, all show and little substance. The menu choices compared to the East Cliff were much smaller. This could be a really good hotel but for us was let down by some maintenance issues, which I overheard staff saying weren't being addressed by management. There was also very little management presence during our stay. We would return to the East Cliff but not I think to the Carlton
