Came down to Ilfracombe with friends for a long weekend clay pigeon shooting at two nearby shooting grounds. I could not praise this hotels facilities and location highly enough. Lovely clean room, good food, lovely staff, and close to all the local attractions. Claire, the owner, was particularly helpful and welcoming. I realise it is listed as a three star... More

My wife and I stayed here while we attended a wedding at the Tunnels Beach. I almost despaired on arrival to find the car park located at the front of the hotel full up. We had endured an awful drive on the A39 from the M5 and the prospect of driving around to look for an on-street parking slot did... More

The hotel is in a great location, on a quiet road next to the tunnels beach and only a short stroll on level ground to the theatre and picturesque harbour area. The rooms are very clean with comfortable beds and good quality linen. The hotel is very well managed and the staff are very friendly. The breakfast is well above... More

We stayed here after booking another awful hotel. Owner helped us out at the last minute and we had a fantastic fun night. Great live music and fantastic people who made our night. It is dated but it's fantastic value for Money would recommend

The Ilfracombe Carlton sounds quite impressive. Unfortunately the impression it left me with was one I shall not forget for all the wrong reasons. Our room was a twin bedded room at the top of the hotel. It was small although it did have an en suite. The en suite was very basic with a shower over the bath. The... More

We recently holidayed in Ilfracombe. We'd booked in at a local holiday village, but, as we checked in we saw the state of our chalet, and checked straight back out. We had had a long drive and it was now around 6pm. After a drive around we stumbled across this friendly hotel. We viewed the family room and promptly checked... More

I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights with a group of 14 people travelling together. I received an horrid room situated on the basement with no windows, a terrible smell of mold and very cold . When I asked to change the room, the lady at the reception answered me very rudely that this was not possible, even if... More

Stayed 4 days in August as part of a group. There is a quiet lounge with books as well as the bar and lobby seating area, and a small lift. It was spotlessly clean; better food than some hotels and always with a vegetarian option or salad choice every day; the staff actually listened and were very helpful. Usual notice... More

I booked this hotel for a weekend at short notice and got a good price. On arrival I was offered a choice of a room with a shower or a bath, and I took the one with a bath. The Carlton is in a quiet road, but lies only a short walk from the town centre and beaches, as well... More
