A first time visit to the Carrington and we were immediately made welcome by Brian, front of house. Our room was spacious, bright, spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable and, I should add, very reasonably priced. It is conveniently sited close to all of the facilities (town centre, beach, reastaurants, railway station and about twenty paces from a multi-storey car park... More

The hotel was clean and tidy but over priced for the quality and location. There was a considerable amount of noise at night from the street next to the hotel which is a busy bar and club street. The hotel lacks parking. The breakfast was average and the owner very nosey and bossy when talking to us

Evidence was found that you where smoking in the room and it was made clear that it is NOT legal, you where treated very leniently, normally guests are asked to leave without a refund and indeed you where allowed to stay, if you decided not to come down and make use of the breakfast which can be up to 4...

From the moment we arrived for our week's stay we were impressed with so many aspects of this family friendly guest house. The warmth and efficiency of our hosts, Angie and Brian, was most appreciated. The decor was fresh and our room was perhaps larger than other rooms as we had a family room for just the two of us....

The Carrington is superb in every department. Only 5 minutes from the bus and train stations, you are made really welcome by the hosts, Brian and Angeline. The rooms are spotlessly clean and have everything that you need. Breakfast was amazing, a choice and everything served piping hot.
