It's one of those places that you can't really fault. Friendly staff, clean rooms, good food. It's also one of those places that looks like it's heyday was in the seventies. It's quite charming in a way. Not necessarily a bad thing but modern is not a word you would use to describe the hotel. I'm 32 and male.

We have been visiting Carlyon Bay for over 20 years and have always enjoyed our stays. At February half term we introduced the third generation of our family to the delights of Carlyon Bay and we all had a super few days. The customer service provided was excellent and all the staff were most helpful. Our son's family room and... More

The last weekend was the third time we had stopped at The Carlyon Bay. Each time we have been delighted with the Hotel facilities the rooms and the friendly helpful staff. The food was fantastic. Last but not least, the golf course, for the time of year, was in great shape and well drained with spectacular views and a good... More

We have just returned from a two night break at Carlyon Bay and I cannot speak highly enough of the customer service and attention to detail that we experienced and witnessed from all members of staff. Nothing was too much trouble and all members of staff that we came into contact with were absolutely delightful. The staff selection and training... More

Great hotel. Choice of restaurants, excellent service and lovely rooms. We had a deluxe room and its worth the extra. Stayed on a DBB basis, food very good in both restaurants. Our room looked like it had just been refurbished, very clean and smart and the free wifi actually works in the rooms very well, although did have to keep... More

Myself and the husband stopped over valentines weekend and what an amazing relaxing weekend we had. Service was amazing as was the food! Even though we had an inland view, the room had more than enough space and was spotless. My husband played 18holes (with me as his caddie) on the Saturday and the views along the coast were pretty...

We have just had a fantastic two night break at this hotel, The staff are attentive, the food is excellent. The facilities are superb. We had an inland standard room which was as good as many hotels would grade as superior. The turn down service and chocolate on the pillow was a very special touch.
