It was the perfect spot, great views, delightful, healthy and varied breakfast fare with home baked bread, jams etc Pleasant and helpful hosts who make you feel very much at home. And a couple of good restaurants, particularly the Thai, just a short... More

Fantastic setting with awesome views across Cable Bay. Our room was quiet and comfortable. Martha and Roly were excellent hosts - extremely friendly and helpful and made us feel completely at home. The breakfast was outstanding.

The fact that we and many others return year after year to Carneval is a testament to how excellent it is. If you are visiting for the first time, make sure you have a meal there. Roly is a superb chef. The rooms are great, the view is superb and the Swiss breakfast makes the perfect start to a day.

We named it our best B&B many years ago and we haven't changed our mind! Superb location, wonderful views, excellent accommodation, incredible breakfast and the perfect hosts. What more is there to say?

Brilliant, is the only world. Martha and Roly go out of their way to provide a very comfortable place to stay. What could be better than a Swiss style breakfast overlooking the bay in the morning sunshine. Rooms are large and very clean with all amenities. Would we stay again, Oh Yes, we loved it

Who misses a typical central European breakfast has to stay at the Carneval. But also the fantastic view over the bay is worth a stay. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The atmosphere is very family like.

Martha and Roly make wonderful hosts in their gorgeous property overlooking the ocean. Our room was delightful, with all needs catered for and outstanding views. The wonderful breakfasts on the terrace were outstanding. We would definitely recommend Carneval as a memorable place to stay.
