We are due to hold a party at the hotel and were concerned by the recent negative reviews on Tripadvisor. We popped in this morning and spoke to the Duty Manager, Sue and Receptionist Lauren. They were both very helpful and showed us a number of rooms which we had booked for our guests. They were all spacious, clean and... More

We stayed with our friends at the Carlton Hotel on New Years Eve. I had booked 2 deluxe adjoining rooms with a seaview and balcony. Check in was smooth and efficient and they kindly allowed us to checkout at 12 instead of 11am as I was worried it was too early as we were all going to a party. The... More

This is about our 4th stay now and we were disappointed this time round. Stayed in a very large room facing the car park, which was fine as hotel surrounded in scaffolding at the moment so sea views not possible anyway. The whole hotel is looking very tired & found the cleanliness of the bathroom shocking! The sink was very... More

After an enjoyable visit to this hotel about 5 months ago, we returned this week and took 2 friends with us. It was embarrassing to take them there. Firstly it was covered in scaffolding which wasn't mentioned when we booked it. Our first room had a window that wouldn't close (and it was quite cold), the wash basin took an... More

We have been guests at this hotel for over 20 years and been loyal guests. over the years had all our celebrations there and breaks. Recently, we have witnessed it gradually going down and many cutbacks. We were there last week for a 2 night stay to celebrate a special birthday. Our room had an awful smell like dogs mess... More

I visited the Carlton for an afternoon tea courtesy of a Groupon deal. It is a nice hotel - welcoming reception staff and bar staff but for our tea we were put in an anexe to the bar and were on our own. The room didn't have any atmosphere and was a bit boring. The tea was nice enough but... More

Had a lovely stay at this lovely hotel. My husband and I turned up a week early without obviously realising until we got there but the staff at reception were amazing, despite being really busy with coach loads, they were still able to accommodate us without any fuss including giving us a room with sea view as per original booking....

Great beds and very nice if you get a Sea View Room. We've stayed twice now and the rooms are very clean . Could do with a bit of a spruce up though , lots of parts of the Hotel and Rooms look a little tired . Maybe Hallmark have started as the outside is clad in Scaffolding. We'll be... More

Perfectly charming hotel. My seaview room was very nice and spacious. Staff were all attentive and friendly. Location is in the centre which makes it perfect. All to my expectations. I would never go to another hotel in Bournemouth provided this hotel has vacancy I simply stepped back in time very pleasently. Semih Güleçyüz
