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

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

We stayed at this hotels in order to attend a family birthday, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the hotel was extremely clean and comfortable. The only thing that concerned us was the lift was carpeted on the floor, walls and ceiling, which seemed a little odd and could be considered a fire hazard.
