I find it hard to read the negative review below when myself & husband found the hotel absolutely perfect! The breakfast was lovely and loved having it at a slightly later time, it's awful having to wake up earlier than normal just to have breakfast. To me it's just another great quality the hotel offer.... The views are breath taking and with this location I wouldn't pick any other hotel in this area. The staff are so friendly and willing to do anything to ensure a comfortable stay. I look forward to coming back next year, I may even try to get two trips in! Thank you Anne & Bob

We stayed here for 5 days. We paid the extra supplement to have a room with a view and it didn't disappoint absolutely stunning. Room was clean and modern. Bathroom was also spotless, only thing missing was a shower, it only had a bath with shower attachment. There was however a shower down the hallway we could use if we preferred but we chose not to. We also didn't notice a 'welcome' booklet in the room with breakfast details, menu etc. Not that it was a serious issue as we were informed of breakfast times on arrival. Staff were extremely friendly and welcoming and always on hand if you needed anything. All in all we enjoyed our stay at the carlton.

I've read a few of the Reviews on the Carlton Hotel before writing this. Richard and I simply cannot fault Anne's Hotel. She gave us very warm welcome in spite of the time being 9.15pm. Anne arranged our ferry tickets as part of the deal for staying in her hotel which helped us make our final decision to stay with her. And what a good choice. We sat down to simply scrumptious breakfasts, summoned by the ringing of an handbell, and were looked after very caringly by our young lady-in-waiting who made sure we had plenty of tea, etc, etc and even apologised for keeping us waiting when we all descended for our breakfasts at 8.30 am!! What more could you ask for??? Our room was very comfortable with our bath and masses of hot water. Richard and I cannot recommend this Hotel more highly and would willingly stay again. An huge thank you to Anne and her staff.

Room Tip: Room to park but even on arriving late on our first night, there was plenty of safe space to park on...

Fantastic location, convenient for both the beach and the shops. Excellent service from very friendly staff, the rooms were clean and very comfortable. The hotel can also provide high quality lunches and teas at very reasonable prices. Wouldn't hesitate to return for another visit.
