“Fantastic wedding reception location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Beautiful old grand building with remarkable attention to detail.
Facilities and food were superb.
Wait staff could improve either their memory, or order taking skills - drinks were often promised and not delivered. Other than that - we had a great time.

“Lovely continental breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Staff friendly and breakfast was really lovely in a stunning dining room. There was an array of food and you could order a hot breakfast at a nominal fee. Worth going to

“Old world with old fashion service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Memories for some and a brand new experience for others! The Dining Room at The Carrington Hotel delivers. You step back into the grandeur of the past whilst you dine on the modern. Great service, a pianist, tables set with wide berths, so you are not overheard. A charming experience.

“Charming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

High Tea in the Ballroom of the Carrington is an experience and a half. The setting is old world charm and the delicate savouries and sweets were delicious - as was the champagne!

“Times past …and now best forgotten”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

My wife and I visited this restaurant in March 2013 as part of a cruise ship excursion. We found the hotel very interesting and elegant.

However, the food was plain, with inflexible staff and crowded seating in a huge ballroom/conference centre. The menu for the day looked similarly uninspiring.

Overall, this was far from exceptional or even satisfactory as a luncheon venue. Exploring around the hotel I felt that this was a place that time had neglected, with many interesting architectural features but somehow not able to attract the investment needed to maintain the elegance of the bygone age in which it originated. For example the garden and grounds layout was very grand, the planting less so, and the overall impression definitely spoilt by the plethora of skateboarders who seemed free to roam them. This was not a memorable lunch on what had otherwise been a good day.
