Had 10th anniversary of our dining club here last week and although weather grey and misty were well looked after in the hotel. Gents enjoyed the golf; ladies enjoyed the spa and lounging, chatting and drinking tea. All staff very friendly and nothing too much trouble - including supply of a couple of cushions for the vertically challenged of us... More

Our annual visit has changed to twice a year, which says it all! This hotel has everything - well furnished comfortable rooms, exceptional staff in all departments, a superb restaurant, and to top it all, an eighteen hole golf course along the cliffs overlooking the beautiful Carlyon Bay. Lots to do and lots to see locally. On a special birthday,... More

We had two rooms - an inland one for the children... More

Had a lovely three night stay at this hotel, on a bed and breakfast basis. Had a sea view, which is well worth it. The room was lovely and clean, when checked in, had a phone call to see if the room was acceptable. I explained that it was a bit cold, and they brought up a heater within ten... More

Highly recommended. This is an excellent hotel all round. Helpfulness and politeness of the staff is one of the best I have come across. We had an inland facing room which could not be faulted. Fine weather was a bonus.

Me and my parter spent 2 days here and couldn't of asked for a better experience. Excellent room (deluxe suite with sea view), the meals were always delicious, the staff were always happy to assist you and we got engaged after a champagne breakfast in the room. Highly recommended.

We had our wedding breakfast and evening reception at the Carlyon Bay and I stayed for three nights. When we arrived the manager was extremely helpful and ensured we had everything we needed for our stay. The day before the wedding I enjoyed a complementary treatment in the spa, which was a really nice touch to make you feel special... More

We decided to getaway for a few days and we are glad we chose this hotel. The welcome we received was a friendly and professional and set the standard for our stay. Our room on the third floor was a corner room with a sea view, comfortable and clean. We asked for feather pillows before we left home and they... More
