I recently had a long weekend stay in Ilfracombe and stayed at the Carlton hotel. You can't fault the staff, they were so friendly and helpful, nothing was any bother for them. I went scuba diving while I was away and Claire the owner offered to put my diving gear in their dry room to dry until I went on... More

Booked this hotel for a week's stay in June 2014. The hotel is situated to enable good access to the main body of Illfracombe, and near to a bus stop to use the local transport. Hotel very clean, the staff were very helpful especially Claire who was a "mine of information on the local area". All the staff were helpful... More

I stayed here for one night, when shooting with a group of friends around the local area. The staff were all polite friendly and helpful, there is a gun room for safe storage of your shotgun, which is secure and alarmed and you have your own cabinet within. The single room that I stayed in was very small but was... More

A group of us stayed at the Carlton and received a warm and friendly welcome from the manager. I shared a twin room which was on the top floor and was clean and well presented. The room was compact but comfortable although the toilet and shower room was small and the hand basin in the bedroom. Beds were very comfortable.... More

The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to help. We booked a couple of days diving which required early starts meaning we had to leave before breakfast. The hotel offered to provide a selection of sandwiches, crisps etc as a packed lunch in lieu of breakfast which we felt was very good service. Very impressed by... More

A lovely hotel. We spent two nights here, for a wedding at the adjacent Tunnel Beaches. The hotel was clean and comfortable. The breakfast really nice. But the most noticeable thing was that the staff were all really friendly - welcoming us when we returned and helping out with everything we needed, whether it was ketchup at breakfast or directions...

I am not an experienced visitor of Hotels, but I have spent 3 nights in this wonderful friendly hotel. Bedroom very clean (which is a must for me). Staff couldn't do enough to make our stay comfortable, and helped with questions about the local area. Food excellent and plenty of it. Would recommend it definitely, and I hope to return... More
