Have you ever stayed at a place where you had relatively high expectations, and when you left you were left with that "well, it was functional and mostly convenient, but not memorable or a great place to stay". Carlton Terrace looks good in the pictures, but it's fairly average. Clean, tidy, well located and functional with a few little boutique additions. It's a mixture of cheap holiday accommodation and a (slightly) boutique B&B
In fact, to be fair, it might have rated a bit higher for me if the owners ever showed up. Text messages with door codes? Sure, it's 2013, but really?. We spoke with no one except on their mobile, and we left and said goodbye to no one. If you're used to quaint B&Bs, this place actually seemed quite impersonal and possibly a bit weird. I wonder if the owners work full time and run this business on the side? Pretty smart if they do, but this might lose them points.
Great location if you wish to be near Lygon Street, but I probably wouldn't stay again.
