“Excellent stay, defo be back!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2013

I stayed for 3 nites with my partner and teenage son and we had an excellent stay. The hotel is in the perfect location with everything just a short walk away, but alot quieter that bein right on the front. The room was decorated lovely, although it was a bit small for the 3 of us, so wud defo book a single room for my son next time. The owners were really friendly and although we never had breakfast, it did smell mega!! Will defo be back, its an excellent wee hotel!!

We were just staying over in Blackpool 1 night. (thank goodness) We arrived to the Carlton, with a lovely welcome from all the family. Was quickly shown our room and given our keys. We found the wifi password quickly on the back of the door in the room. It was comfortable and clean. Bathroom was a little dated but still functioned well for us. The only issue was we could hear the guy in the room next to us coughing up a lung in the morning from the paneled room in the bathroom. Good sleep and nice flat screen TV. Breakfast was great and well stocked. Fry up was fab! Cant complain to much at all here. Lovely hosts and clean cheap room. Just perfect for a quick stop over.

We arrived a young guy checked us in never even smiled really i think he was more bothered about watching cricket. Never got shown to our room just got told where it was. We opened our door to find a ok room but there is room for improvement. No phone. I mean come on what hotel room doesnt even have a phone these days. The bathroom looks very dated the plastic ceiling kept making noises every time you opened and closed the door. The shower is by far the smallest ive ever been in. Its that small i had to stand sideways to wash my private parts. Furniture needed updating. Cannot on breakfast as i didnt go for it will not be in a rush to return

very good hotel, although only a young couple that runs this place they were very accomodating and friendly.
very good choices of breakfast
rooms very clean and had everything that you needed in there
locastion was excellent, just around the corner from everything and breakfast was at a good time so you didnt need to be up at the crack of dawn
would definately stay here again

Room Tip: there is a ground room avail if you have trouble with the stairs

we have stayed in hotels all over the country and The Carlton definately tops all of them, everything from the room to breakfast was absolutely amazing, generous breakfast served by the owners, clean rooms with flat screen tv's. my car broke down whilst i was in Blackpool and the owner contacted a local garage and dropped us down the seafront whilst they were looking at it! exactly how a hotel should be run. we will definately be back! thanks nikita and sam

I have wrote this review in line with other hotels in Blackpool not compared to the market as a whole worldwide , the reason is I normally stay 5 star spending hundreds a night so I wouldn't expect this to match upto that.

I stayed here for one night. My friends all stayed in another hotel and this was superior in everyway.

Check in smooth and quick and shown to room
I was in single room the room was fresh clean and travel lodge standard.

Shower room was a bit small but adequate for a single lad.

Staff friendly and helped if needed.

If I ever stayed in Blackpool again I would defiantly not educate in staying here but I will never stay in Blackpool again what an absolute dive.

Rough doesn't even come close , fighting bouncers doing nothing , £5 a drink every where .

A note to hotel tell people the wifi password when they check in.

I would recommend hotel great central location but as far as Blackpool goes why would anyone come here
