As an American, I've been attending the annual SF Ball at the Carrington for five years and the quality has plummeted from "Cheap and Cheerful" to "Filthy and Disgusting". The bar was punitively understaffed (ONE friendly gal attending to more than 250 convention guests), repulsively unpalatable food and rooms so filthy that they would light up like a Jackson Pollack...

Had an overnight stay at The Carrington and after some worries having read the reviews was pleasantly surprised to find the hotel very comfortable. We arrived in the afternoon and I asked for a quiet room only the piped music from the bar below us made us ask for another room! No fuss the staff on reception were very helpful... More

We arrived at 12 noon with a coach party , and the driver asked if we could book in then or not, they told us to comeback after 3:00 pm. When we returned we found that there were a number of rooms that still needed to be cleaned. My room was 250 and to get there I had to use... More

Your average hotel. Dated inside, needs a good vamp! Average foods. Rooms were ok. A good walk to town centre. £120 per night. Was steep for what it was! We didnt get to the "pool." Overal just an average hotel.

The rooms are small and could do with an update. However, the staff were friendly and helpful, breakfast was alright and there's even a small swimming pool. It isn't the smartest place but I believe that overall it represents excellent value for money!!
