Stayed for a Xmas party weekend and had a good time here. The food is tasty, & all staff are friendly and helpful. Warm and inviting hotel. Shares facilities with 2 adjoining hotels so there is a big area for entertainment for all three. Two areas need attention: some public areas have damp and it is leaking, not nice, and... More

We have just returned home after a short weekend break at the Carlton Hotel, Torquay. We were last at the hotel some six years ago, noticed a few cutbacks but nothing to dampen the weekend. Good value for money, the use of facilities : swimming, sauna, steam room a great bonus. Found the Hotel to be a little tired in... More

We have just returned home after a really good T&T 4 night break at this hotel. The room was clean and comfortable and we had an apartment which was great with everything you could possibly need in it. The food was excellent, our only complaint is that there was not enough staff to serve in the dining room especially at... More

I found the place a little worn and tired in places . The heat in the building was over bearing in the evenings making sleeping difficult ,I realise we had a warm October but still. The staff were very friendly and very professional . I would say value for money if they hadn't increased their tariffs for the kids half... More

Yet another lovely time at the Carlton, staff really friendly and helpful - some new faces some old. Room very clean with a great view, definitely worth staying in a Riviera room. Lots to do and some improvements in the pool area made since our last trip. New roller inflatables for the children plus aqua jets and sit on ski... More

This is part of a four hotel complex linked together. Excellent family provision, with games room, free swimming in large indoor pool, and full entertainment all included. Food is of good to very good quality. Staff friendly and helpful. Hotel is over warm, and wifi, even in public areas, is very patchy. Apart from that, highly recommended.

I hadn't been here before but came with a group of friends. The hotel is a lot bigger then what I imagined and there is always a lot going on for all ages. On arrival the receptionist was ok but thought we would get more of a cheerful welcome. Other members of staff were lovely. The 3 course food the... More
