A room had been arranged for us to spend our wedding night in. Very impressed with the room. Was a lovely size, nice and clean and had everything we needed. Staff were very helpful when we arrived, took us to our room and said if we need anything just ask. Would highly recommend a stay here

My wife and I stayed here for the bank holiday and we were very impressed. The staff immediately make you feel very welcome and showed us to our room. I had to ask if we had the correct room as it looked well above the price we had paid but it was our room. The room was done in dark wood and looked beautiful. The bed was just awesome. You literally sank into it. Could of done without the 15 tog quilt though when the temp outside was nearly 27! Our only disappointment was the restaurant. The menu was limited and a bit over priced. When our food came it was luke warm and tasteless. The service was good though.

Room Tip: I travel a lot for my work and always stay at the branded hotels but this is the type of place I wil...

We stayed at Carlton Manor over the Bank Holiday weekend, we discovered how central the place is, it was 5 minutes from Oulten Broads, 10 minutes from Lowerstoft and 25 minutes from Southwold. The hotel staff were very helpful the food was excellent all freshly prepared, including the bar food all cooked to order and of a very high standard, for Breakfast we both had smoked haddock it was excellent (not dyed yellow) cooked fresh and served beautifully with a poached egg and tomato, along with tea /coffee and fresh juice. The room was very comfortable and decorated to a high standard. Lastly it was excellent value for money.
We would like to thank all the staff at Carlton manor for making our stay so very enjoyable and comfortable.
Sandra & Don.

We stayed in a family room for one night. It had a big TV, a clean modern bathroom and a main, large, fancy bedroom. The main room had a comfy double bed and a little bit uncomfortable sofa bed. The staff was very friendly and chatty. Overall I rate this hotel a good place to stay.

Came in for a drink a few weeks ago with friends. We entered the hotel expecting much more then what we had received. Very poorly run, management didn't seem like they knew what they were doing also very in polite and a lack of experience with all staff. Highly disappointed with what seemed to be a promising hotel. Will not be coming here again.

Room Tip: Don't bother save your money.

I have stayed here twice now for work purposes. The hotel is clean and modern. The price I believe was good value for money and free wifi was included which is helpful. The bar staff and reception staff were helpful and there was no waiting. I have not eaten at the restaurant so I can't comment on this. My only negative is the rooms can get quite warm and be a little stuffy, but this is probably due to the hot weather. Recommended.
