Recently had a long weekend at the Carlton Hotel with National. Had a dual aspect sea-view room. Room old-fashioned, but comfortable. Food good and hot. The staff were very helpful. Would certainly go there again.

April 14
Just arrive back from a weekend break at Carlton Hotel, they have just decorated all rooms to a reasonable standard.
I like our room but it was so large with a 22 inch flat screen tele it was had to see the tele.
Carlton as done done well with the reception area but the bar since being decorated and changed the seating is more like a canteen and theirs no atmosphere seat are hard and uncomfortable. Sorry but change a nice bar to a cold atmosphere.
Reception would be nice have have wifi.
Carlton is still good value for money and the food is not bad for a low budget hotel,

We have just returned from a self drive weekend at the Carlton Hotel.Upon arriving we were able to park outside the hotel without any problem.[Had been worrying about this as the hotel does not have its own parking].We reported to reception were we were dealt with in a friendly and professional manner.The room we were allocated was 341.It is quite a way from the lifts and stairs but the room itself is in a quiet position.There was no noise from inside the hotel ,or from the street outside.and we could see the beach and sea from our small bay window.
The Dining room was well presented and the food we had was very good.Nuno the waiter was exceptional and gave us wonderful service.The evening entertainment was enjoyable and the singer Lisa Marie was excellent.Any queries we had about the surrounding area for our days out weredealt with by the reception who were very helpful to us.Will return here again

Thank you 362david201130, for your wonderful review, I am highly delighted you enjoyed your stay with us, just a note on parking, we rent spaces form the masonic lodge next door between July & September, which relieves the pressure on parking outside our hotel, hope this helps if you want to come to see us in the peak season, we hope you will!

I have just spent 5 days with Shearings Holidays at the Carlton Hotel Great Yarmouth. This is a fantastic hotel with great staff and a very welcoming atmosphere. The room was very clean and a good size.The food was excellent and our waiter Nuno was great in his service and friendliness he gave towards us, always smiling. Our driver Paul made it a good holiday.

We have just returned from a party weekend at the Bay Carlton Hotel in Great Yarmouth, our first visit to both Hotel and Great Yarmouth and it wont be our last, had a great break. Reception staff were fantastic and when asked to be upgraded to another room, it was dealt with very efficiently. The choice of food was very good, changing every day, I must agree with other comments that at times the waitresses did looked rushed, and seemed to dash from table to table. The evening entertainment was excellent, could have listened to Lisa Marie all night. Alll in all, this is a great hotel, very clean and efficiently run, nothing was too much trouble. Hope to return again sometime in the year, A big thanks to all the staff, keep up the good work xxx

Room Tip: we had room 141 on the front with a side bay window with a sea view
