Pictures of the Carlton Hotel indicated a well decorated property on Great Yarmouth sea front. Visiting in Autumn it looks rather rundown and one area is in the process of renovation. I was travelling with a coach party and was allocated an extremely small single room with 'superb' view of the next building, a few feet away, and very little... More

The hotel is in the perfect position.Opposite the pier and beach and a short walk from the town centre. Our standard plus room was very clean and comfortable although a few more drawers would have been nice. The food was excellent, both in choice of menu and size of portions.

Had a long weekend at the Carlton with Shearings. The coach and driver were satisfactory however the interchange at Corley leaves a lot to be desired. You are herded into the services , no one seems aware of what's going on. There are not enough chairs for all of the Shearing passengers plus the normal service station visitors. The hotel... More
