The pool wasnt too crowded either considering first week of school holidays. 2 year old loved the playground facilities. Stayed one night as hotel guest and then 4 as apartment. Hotel was DBB - dinner was ok for... More

I stayed in this hotel on business for two nights. It is very much a "coach tour" hotel, and both nights I was there I was woken up at approx 0600 by the sound of people coming and going outside.

Stayed at the Carlton after a break of 2years, public areas of hotel, corridors and stairwells have generally been refurbished to a good standard, some work still needs to upgrade isolated areas of carpet to stairs and bedroom. Did not book until late and hotel was full so only able to get a front facing room on first floor directly... More
