Very good location, service, food and facilities. Not sure whether the amount of noise coming from some of the golfing groups in the dining room at times was entirely in keeping with a 4 star hotel. I wasn't the only one to be aware of it.

Luxurous hotel with excellend food and nice view from the restaurant to the sea. Perhaps a bit too expensive for the service offered. Golf course very close to hotel. Staff at reception not too helpful. Other personnel was very friendly.

We came to the Hotel a sort break to celebrate a birthday, have a pre-operation boost and play some Golf. We were delighted with all the amenities, the high quality of the accommodation and the friendliness of all the staff and the attention to detail.

We are a group of six golfers who stayed at The Carlyon Bay for three nights. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The golf course was in good condition and the clubhouse has been nicely redecorated since last year. The staff were all very welcoming, friendly and professional. The free WiFi worked well even in my bedroom. Snooker after an excellent... More

This is a very nice hotel with excellent service and fine food. The adjacent golf course runs parallel to the sea and offers great views and a decent challenge (more than decent if the wind is up). Nearby are a variety of well known and less well known gardens which provide for a good day (half day) out.

We have just enjoyed a three day reunion at this wonderful hotel. Having stayed in hundreds of hotels it was a joy to see such high standards in every aspect and all done with a smile. The hotel industry should aspire to reach all your standards. Well done to all the staff.

We only stayed one night for our wedding anniversary and we only live five miles from the hotel. The service was first class and the food delicious. There was a disco after dinner and all in all we had a great time.
