Our third visit to this hotel, we came with a party of golfers recently. Food and rooms were as good as we remembered, dining room has been revamped, staff very friendly. Only complaint was a lack of toiletries in the room, one small shower gel, shampoo and body lotion (added on the second day) in a double room, meaning that... More

The hotel was very comfortable, the food excellent and very generous in portion and the staff helpful and courteous. The wine list is very good and surprisingly affordable. The golf course was in good condition and a fair test of golf.

We have been going to Carlyon Bay Hotel for the last 15 or 16 years, although not every year. Our previous visit was in April 2013 when we stayed with a mixed group of over 70 from the now sadly closed Taunton Vale Golf Club. We were looked after in splendid fashion by Peter and his splendid staff and this... More

A first class stay. The greeting on arrival and the attention to detail was as I have now come to expect from the Brend group but in particular the Carlyon Bay Hotel is that little bit special. The rooms, food and service are exceptional.
