“Excellent Value for Lunch & Dinner”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

This restaurant provides good quality food nicely served and at a fair price. We go with friends regularly and would strongly recommend it. The only downside is rather tight for space but this is offset by the service and the cleanliness. Car parking is provided and is also available outside on the road.

Room Tip: The hotel occupation is high but we live in Rugby and and have not any experience of the rooms.

Hello,

Thanks for leaving such a great review. We love to see people coming back again and again and of course we always recommend that our customers book in advance, as we do have limited space, but try our best to accommodate.

Thanks, and hope to see you again soon!

On the night I stayed at The Carlton I chose a small single room to keep costs down. It was very comfortable and clean with everything I needed for a restful night's stay close to the station and the town centre (For motorists there's car-parking space for guests). I also had a meal in the restaurant and paid for breakfast the next morning. Both meals were tasty and well presented. The staff are friendly and on the night I stayed, it was cheaper than the nearby Travelodge and much nicer - though on previous occasions when I've compared prices, it has been more expensive. I'll certainly stay again when I'm back in Rugby if the price is right.

I stayed here with my son and the room was clean and cozy, my heart sank when we had a room facing the road, but it was remarkably quiet even on a saturday night. Very friendly, helpful staff, we didn't sample the restaurant but there was a big crowd in the bar waiting to eat so obviously very popular.

We recently celebrated my wife's 50th birthday with a meal for 12 at the Carlton. Have eaten there many times before and once again I am pleased to report that the quality of the food was great and such good value. Service both before the meal in making arrangements was excellent as well as service on the evening. Would thoroughly recommend eating there, you will not be disappointed.

An excellent meal in a lovely atmosphere, even gave my parents a card which was a lovely thought as well as anniversary decorations on the table.

Service excellent as well as food.

Everyone friendly and welcoming and nothing too much trouble, nice idea having drinks first in cosy bar and choosing food and then going to selected table

Room Tip: Didn't stay for the night

Had another great night staying here. As before, great service on entry. Very efficient. Room was well presented and clean. Nice and quiet in the evening and early morning - no bin men as we have experienced in some hotels!. Great location for the town centre. Highly recommend!

My wife and i booked a table on Feb 14th to celebrate St Valentines night and as expected the whole experience was 1st class.
All the staff are very friendly and professional and the food was as normal a very high quailty.
Jaspel and his staff make sure you are made welcome you always go away totally satisfied.
You will not get better food & service anywhere in Rugby.
