Your hotel is on an amazing location, but a bit dated , need updated . ( Smell a bit like old people ) Breakfast is not the best either. Room door has loads of space at the bottom, I can hear other guests talking in the room opposite me. Also need some wall socket next to the bed. Saying all... More

Spent 3 nights here in August. The twin room was the size of a postage stamp. the bathroom was not acceptable and needed updating.The staff were not particularly helpfull and seemed not to enjoy their jobs which gave the hotel an uneasy atmosphere.

First look from outside was impressive because of the view, but rooms were not as we thought it would be and we paid a fortune for it. We felt like an outsider and felt rejected. It was our first time at the Carlton's and I'm sure it will be the last.

This hotel is right on the sea front it's clean and if you pay extra for a sea view and balcony it's well worth it. The rooms are a bit dated but cleaned everyday and the standard you expect for the price tariff.After an initial hiccup on arrival it was soon sorted out with apologies too. We didn't eat here...

We have returned today from a 4 night stay at the Carlton Hotel in Sandown Isle of Wight and had a lovely time. I had read some of the reviews posted on here before we went and was expecting to be disappointed with this hotel. Well we weren't- from the first impression of our room and our first meal there....

hotel was okay, really warm but did not have a window as we had a balcony, couldn't leave the doors open at night as you could walk from one end off hotel to the other as there was only a small metal bar to separate rooms, bathroom was really tiny, hotel was clean enough, meals were a bit hurried

I was concerned about reviews when we booked our holiday but within minutes of stepping into the hotel my fears were banished. Our room (with a sea view balcony) was excellent - clean, bright airy with a very comfortable bed. Michelle came on to the coach to welcome us with teas and coffees. It was like being welcomed into someone's... More
