We are regular guests at the Carlton Hotel over 20 years or so and would not stay anywhere else. The welcoming staff at reception always ready to assist and the Manager Philip making sure guests are happy and comfortable. It was a very special birthday for my son last weekend and the whole family spent the weekend, and all staff... More

We've stayed here many times over the past 30 years, in a timeshare and as hotel guests. Panoramic views across Bournemouth bay, friendly welcoming staff (especially Simon and Shirley). Reception staff are also very friendly. Sunday lunch is excellent, really good value. The Carlton has historic connections to World War 2, lots of sketches in the bar of WW2 figures.... More

We booked an accessible, disabled friendly room with a sea view. When we arrived we were put in a lovely room but no walk in shower suitable for someone wheelchair bound nor grab bars by the toilet. After considerable argument we were finally offered room 110 which was smaller but had a more suitable shower. The bed was huge! After... More

What I love about going home to Bournemouth at this time of year is how the good hotels manage to stay open all year round and offer really great value for money! I booked online a few months in advance and got a great room only rate! The hotel is in very good order still despite it's age. It's location... More

The hotel is well situated on with great views, it is opposite the cliff lift down to the beach, (seasonal) or zig zags for the more able. A steady 10 minute walk gets you to the pier and gardens. 20 to the main shoping precinct if you must. There is a gym and outside pool. Our room was surprisingly large... More

My wife and I were due to stay at the Menzies East Cliff Court, but our booking was transferred to the Menzies Carlton, supposedly due to rooms experiencing leaks due to heavy rain the previous night (we were advised of this by phone prior to our arrival). I was assured that the hotels were of similar standard - if so,... More
