Eight of us spent a night at the Carlton in November and had a pleasant stay. The hotel is spotlessly clean with parking for several cars. Two rooms had a sea view while the third looked over what was a carehome car park I think.
The rooms and public areas were spotlessly clean but as the rooms are quite spacious they did get a bit chilly, meaning we needed to use the extra oil filled radiators on top of the wall mounted ones.
The hotel is well positioned, facing the sea, close to Toby Carvery and a short walk into the town.
Breakfast is served in the airy and bright basement and was served at 9am prompt - there didn't seem to be any choice in the time you got breakfast which is a bit odd but the food was nicely prepared. Would have been nice to see hash browns on the menu too (just a personal favourite of mine!!)
You can catch a bus into Blackpool (about 20 / 25 minute journey) from the main town area which is a ten minute walk from the hotel.
We bought £3.50 all day tickets from a newsagent (costs more if you buy on the bus), these allow you unlimited trips on certain local buses and trams. Just check before you buy as there seem to be different tickets and they can all only be used on certain buses and routes.
