“Golfers & Wives from Bury St Edmunds”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2013

A lovely location with a warm welcome from Bob & Anne.
They were particularly helpful with finding the best golf courses for us to play and took time and trouble to book them for us.
There was always someone available to attend to us, you were made to feel that nothing was too much trouble.
The facilities were good , the breakfast excellent and the garden was beautiful.

We stayed here over the August bank holiday and genuinely couldn't of asked for more. Lovely hotel in a lovely location. The rooms are nice and well kept with everything you need. The owners, Bob and Anne are excellent and really helped to make our stay so special and memorable. Cannot wait to return!

My family and I holiday on the Isle of Wight every year and were completely blown away this year when we arrived at the 'Carlton Hotel.' Such a beautiful hotel in an amazing location with a view to die for! The owners, Bob and Anne made us feel so welcome, it was like home from home. They couldn't do enough for us and the children to ensure our stay was unforgettable. Their daughter Leigh was very friendly and our children made good friends with their Grandchildren Lewis and Mia. We usually stay somewhere different each year we visit the Island, but not next year, we've already booked up for another week at the 'Carlton Hotel' and we're so looking forward to going back!

We arrived late evening after Anne had to rearrange our ferry crossing. On arrival Anne sat us down in the lounge with a cup of tea and coffee and Bob took our bags to our room. The room was excellent with a very comfortable mattress on the double bed. Bob and Anne were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The gardens and view have been mentioned by others and we totally agree they are delightful. Breakfast was very tasty with a good choice on the menu. The waitresses were very friendly. We would recommend this hotel to anyone planning to stay in Shanklin.

We usually holiday abroad but chose to visit the lovely Isle of Wight and to stay at this hotel. What a lovely surprise, we received a great welcome a pot of tea was served to us on arrival our cases were taken to our room and we were given a guided tour of the hotel before being shown to our room. We had booked one of the sea view rooms with balcony. Quite a few of the other guests said they had tried to book that room I'm glad we were successful I can definitely recommend. Breakfast each day was superbly cooked and served by the most friendliest of staff. We will definitely return. Thank you Rob and Anne for a lovely stay. Bob and Jill Elaom

After celebrating our Daughters first birthday party at the hotel (which Bob and Anne opened up especially for us out of season). We all had such a good time that we decided that The Carlton Hotel would be the perfect venue to host our very own wedding reception. Once again Bob and Anne were the perfect hosts and treated us like ViP's throughout. Nothing was too much for them to do for us. We had a lovely time and really pleased that we had our big day at The Carlton Hotel. Brilliant!

After speaking with Bob and Anne about our child's 1st Birthday party they kindly offered to let us use their hotel as the venue for the party. We had several guests coming from the mainland as well as overseas and even though it was out of season for them they even opened up their hotel for them all to stay for the night. The food was exceptional and really good value for money. The hosts were exemplary and it felt as if they couldn't do enough for us. So much so, we decided to book the hotel as our wedding venue also.
