Great hotel with lovely super helpful staff. Close to sea and short walk to shops, beach, restaurants. Comfortable room, good size and clean. Some of the decor needs updating, but overall well worth the money.

we stayed for 2 nights in a family room on DB&B - overall, it was definitely a good hotel that was a little tired and had seen better times. The set menu at 26 pp was excellent value in the restaurant, the room was spacious with a massive double bed and nicely decked out. The outdoor pool was great although... More

We stayed at the Carlton Hotel for two nights after a late booking so we appreciated we didn't have a choice of room at such short notice and in the height of the summer season. The reception staff at all times were polite, friendly and very welcoming. The room itself was a good size double (room 229), rather outdated, tired... More

I attended a training course in the conference room and was impressed with the facilities. Parking was available freely, great views to the front/rear of the property where additional parking is available for £4 all day. Beverages were available throughout the day along with lunch and afternoon snacks, all food was great - well presented, hot and delicious. The decor... More

We stayed at the Carlton Hotel for one night, it being a prize in a raffle. We had room 312, third floor sea view. It was large and spacious and comfortable. We had a three course evening meal which was lovely and good quality. Breakfast I thought was a good variety of fruit, cereals and croissants as well as an... More

We stayed at the Carlton Bournemouth for my husbands surprise Birthday weekend at the beginning of July. The weather was amazing as always and the service at the Carlton as always was wonderful. The staff are always very kind and helpful to all guests and any hiccups are immediately resolved. The rooms are spotlessly clean and tidy. Reception staff are... More

We have just returned from a two day break at the Menzies Carlton Hotel. We made our booking directly with the hotel and felt reassured by the positive feedback on Trip Advisor. We booked three rooms, a suite with a balcony and sea view, a double room with sea view and a family room with sea view. (All being the... More

Dear Deborah O Once aware of your full requirements an alternative room was offered this would have allowed your uncle a room with a large balcony and uninterrupted sea views. I am sorry a room move was not agreeable. When we spoke at the hotel your concerns were acknowledged and an outcome discussed prior to check out, this was agreeable... More

We got a very nice double room with a balcony, spacious with lovely sea view and aircondition. The staff was very helpful, and we could borrow towels for bathing. Nice pool with poolbar. We left the hotel at 04.30 in the morning, and the hotel staff had prepared a full breakfast for us. Quite expensive hotel, but worth it!

Booked last minute for one night away just me and my dog, and chose this hotel for the fact it had a pool, sea views and was dog friendly. Booked a double room (No. 116) with balcony and sea view which came with breakfast included. The room was really lovely with the best balcony in the hotel (from what I... More
