Reviewed 15 June 2014

Stayed for one night for a business trip attending the Blackpool Pride and Same Sex Dance Championships. The location of the Carlton is excellent for the Winter Gardens, town centre and prom. Nothing was too much trouble and Stuart kindly allowed me to have breakfast early as I had to attend a business meeting which was very helpful. Look forward to staying here again.

Stayed here last week with work and was very impressed. The location is excellent if your visiting either the main town,the tower or indeed the football ground. It is central to everything and is litteraly a 2-3 minute walk from the tower,beach and the central pier.
The hotel is clean and tidy and the rooms are of a good standard. The value for money is really good and the breakfast for me was excellent with a wide choice.
None of Blackpool's hotels are the Ritz but it was a big bonus to find that my boss had found a great value hotel which ticks all the boxes.
The owners are very helpful and extremely approachable and they care about their business. I will certainly see if there is room if I manage to bring my family up to Blackpool for a little break.

Room Tip: Because it is such a good location I would envisage that rooms at the front of the building could po...

We stayed 2 nights for a for a fitness convention at the Winter gardens, The Carlton is great location for the venue which is 5mins walk around the corner, easy to get to centre and restaurants.

The main plus point for the accommodation is the owner, who couldn't do enough to be helpful and provides a good friendly service. Breakfast was really good also, I actually got more food than I expected always a plus. I had asked for fried egg once it had arrived I asked for both sides to be done, totally my fault for not specifying and he apologised for not remembering - no way did I expect him to remember with all the different breakfast requests from day to day. We also had a leaky kettle which he replaced with a new one and apologised for the inconvenience.

The room #14 was small but adequate, shower cubicle was a little small but not spending the weekend in the bathroom the size of it isn't too much a problem. Clean bedding and towels, free wifi which was good but signal wasn't consistent but again not a massive problem as that can happen. Room #14 faced the main road evident from the early morning call of the party people returning on their walk of shame which would be fine if I was joining them, I'm not a light sleeper and the sounds woke me up a few times through the night. A combination of noise and lumpy, soft mattress resulted in a not very good sleep on Friday night. Also noticed the doors seemed noisy every time door were shut they seemed to be slammed shut, the women next door were very loud and didn't seem to care who knew it, this is not the fault of the landlord and just unfortunate that we had noisy neighbours luckily this was just the Friday night as they left Saturday.

I would stay again but I would request a back room or not facing the front main road, the landlord's helpfulness is the main reason we would go back and stay again.

Room Tip: #14 is at the front quite noisy at weekends, small shower cubicle

My husband and myself stayed at the Carlton with 14 others to celebrate our friend's 50th birthday. On arrival we were warmly greeted by the owner Stuart who couldn't do enough for us throughout our 2 night stay. Although small, the rooms were spotlessly clean and very tastefully decorated. Breakfast was very tasty and was served at a reasonable time (not at the crack of dawn like some establishments). Although rushed off her feet (as all 16 of us attended the same sitting), the waitress (Stuart's mum in law who was helping out) was very friendly and attentive. The Carlton is also perfectly situated, for the town, seafront and Tower and although there is no private parking, you are able to park outside the Carlton to load/unload luggage and a council run supervised car park is available on the next street at very reasonable rates. I would definitely recommend the Carlton and would not hesitate to stay here again. Thank you Stuart and family for such a lovely stay.

We stayed 2 nights while attending a dance event at The Tower Ballroom and this was a superb base as it was less than 5mins walk away. The owners are a young couple who seem to be doing a good job here. Personal and friendly service, just what one would expect from a good B&B. Very good value at £50 per room per night. Our room was a little small, but to be expected really in these converted terraces. It was adequate. It contained a double and a single bed, very comfortable and good linen. Space a little limited for hanging and storing clothes - not really a problem for 2 nights but may have been an issue on a longer stay. Shower OK, but hot water a bit unreliable - there may have been a problem, don't know. Highlight was the full English, very good indeed, plenty of it and unlimited toast and tea/coffee. You get more space in a Travelodge, but you don't get this handy location. Parking in next street for £9 for 72 hours. Very good attention from Stuart the owner.

Hotel does everything it says on the tin! Excellent location. Used for football weekend and 2 minutes from shops and 15 minutes from the ground! Just a shame my team drew.....
Breakfast was nice. Staff very friendly. Parking 5 minutes walk away but seemed quite secure.
