Myself and my boyfriend stayed at the Carlton hotel over the wkend. We had a travelzoo deal but after reading some of the reviews were a little worried about our stay!
I can honestly say we had a fabulous time. The hotel itself overlooks the sea and is approx 10 min walk to the pier area / 5 mins walk to the pubs/restaurants (christchurch rd).
The hotel is decorated tasetfully but with an older design and the quiet room is noce for relaxing / reading. As part of the travelzoo deal we had an upgrade to the superior room. The room was huge. We had a seaview, sofa, plasma tv, kingsize bed, dressing gowns and a lovely clean bathroom with shower. No complaints at all!
Again as part of the deal we had a 2 course meal in the restaurant. The food in fredericks restaurant was good! I had the goats cheese starter and cod and pancetta main. No issues iwth either. We had 2 glasses of proscecco free as part of the deal whch we took to our room and later ordered a bottle (£28). Room service was efficient although there is a tray service of £3.50.
The breakfast the next morning did not disappoint either -both plentiful and tasty. We ordered poached eggs in addition to the hot breakfast buffet and they were cooked perfectly with a runny yolk. Perphaps the selction for continental could be better but we decided to opt for the hot option.
All in all I would recommend to anyone looking for a cheap wkend by the sea! Its not the ritz but its a very good quality 4 star hotel!
