My wife and I booked with national holidays, on a 4 day holiday deal. The hotel is approx 2 miles from main shopping area, it is a fair walk to the beach. The nearest bus stop is 10-15 min walk, the nearest newsagents is 15-20 min walk. If you have problems walk, this hotel is not for you, it's in... More

I came here with my friend on a 4 day National Holiday break. If you are not steady on your legs then be aware, lots of steps and un-level floors with me nearly falling. I had to ask for everything in my room every morning or evening for teabags, milk, toilet rolls and clean towels. Breakfast, another story, plenty of... More

We found the hotel was clean, however wouldn't stay there again due to the noise from the function room which was below our room, staff were friendly and breakfast was ok for the price. If I stayed there again, I would ring up to check if any functions going on

We stayed for a long weekend, an organised dance break, the ballroom is superb but everything. else about the hotel left a lot to be desired. The decor is tired and the staff on the,whole unhelpful.. The housekeeping was appalling, on one day our cups were washed, milk left but bed unmade, towels not replaced or even folded, wash basin... More

We have enjoyed dance weekends here before but never again! The first night a group on a Stag do kept us awake until 3 o'clock in the morning. Next morning the breakfast self service had run out of bacon because another group of guests had eaten it all! We went out for the day and when we arrived back no... More

This hotel is the worst I have stayed in. Dirty rooms, mouldy bathrooms, corrider musty and smelly. To top it all the food is terrible. Some of the staff were friendly and helpful bit but this is basically a hotel ripping People off and making no apology for it. Am disgusted.

To whom it may concern. I recently stayed in this very dated hotel for a wkend and if I'm honest I would sleep in the car before I'd stay there again, on night 2 of a 3 night stay my room was broken into with a large sum of money taken, police came and told me it wasn't there first... More

Visited for a dance weekend. Located on quiet, tree lined road and a short walk to the beach. Car park is a bit small given the size of the hotel. Warm welcome from staff on reception. Double en-suite room was a good size and clean but décor is a bit dated. One of the light bulbs in the room was... More

We stayed at the carrington hotel for two nights, it was a cheap deal. The carpet had a huge stain on it (vomit I think) and there were splashes of something nasty all up the radiator, cob webs in the lamp shades. The staff were noisy and when my partner asked them to be quiet they were quite rude. Will... More
