We stayed 5 nights in a sea view room. Yes, the décor is dated and 'of a type'. It is however still comfortable, very clean and well maintained. The staff were unfailingly helpful, efficient, polite, and friendly in a professional way - a big asset for the hotel and such nice people! In the restaurant, the food is unfailingly excellent....

We did not choose to go here as friends had booked it for us. The professional pictures do look amazing though, but the reality is that it's all a bit dated and old fashioned. I prefer more of a modern look, but don't mind the right kind of old fashioned, this was more granny style than classy real old rather... More

. 5th July 2014 Family Event at the Carlton Bournemouth. This was my first visit to the Carlton and the occasion was to celebrate my uncle-in-law's 90th birthday. The hotel was busy and there was a wedding celebration going on at the same time. The weather was fine and there were many people around the very pretty pool set in... More

My wife I stayed at the Carlton Hotel for one night last week. It has been several years since I last stayed here on business. The rooms have been upgraded but much of the reception and public area's have had little attention. The one lift the second down from the reception is still old and tired and needs a refurb.... More

Great service from all the staff. The outdoor swimming pool with heated water is really nice. The location close to the path down to the beach and with the pier and town in walking distance is just perfect. Large rooms. Squeaky floor in hallway and stairs

I stayed here on a business trip, so thankfully I wasn't actually paying for this. My room was not very good and I had to ask for them to fix the extractor fan in my room (fixed next day). It was very noisy as the room was ground floor and you could hear everything above you. The staff were friendly... More

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in January 2014 during our post-Christmas shopping. The room was very spacious, clean, quiet and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful and we were given some free car parking spaces. We tried the pool area and the sauna one morning but it was very small and a bit out of... More

We (husband, 3 year old and 11 month old) stayed in a family room this week. I paid for a sea view, and we did have one, it just wasn't facing the sea, the family rooms are on the side of the hotel (where the entrance is). The indoor pool was empty as closed for maintenance, this was a bit... More

Positives first, for someone who generally doesn't sleep away from home, the beds were large and comfortable and I had a good night's sleep. Rooms ( we had two) were large although a little dated. Generally quiet, although as with most hotel of this age, some very squeaky floorboards. Breakfast was something of an experience, shown to a table with... More
