Stayed at the Carlton last week for two nights, it is a great location on the banks of the river Thames and literally opposite the main gate into Hampton Court. We were upgraded to an amazing room 402, which was a suite with amazing views of both the Thames and Hampton Court. The hotel does seem quite expensive when booking, but the location, free mini bar, newspaper, etc meant it felt reasonable in comparison to others in the area.
We had an evening meal on our first night, in the brasserie, and as the weather was warm and dry, you could eat outside, literally next to the Thames, the views of the boats etc were fab. The food was delicious.
The train station is just across the bridge from the hotel, and the train to Wimbledon took under 30 mins, and leaving the car at the hotel was perfect. Parking is somewhat of a problem when arriving to book in, but the hotel staff were very helpful and spaces soon became available.
Breakfast was very good, smoked salmon, scrambled eggs, fresh fruit, cakes etc. all set in the restaurant overlooking the Thames, incredible views.
Hampton Court was ok but the gardens were beautiful.
The staff throughout the hotel were excellent and we will definitely return!
