“Relaxing home from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013 via mobile

We first visited the Carlton 5 years ago. We were so impressed by the location and service we received last time we decided last minute to return here for a much needed week away. We received a very warm welcome from Debbie. Since we last visited she has been updating the rooms, making them even more comfortable and welcoming.
There's always plenty of lovely food for breakfast, served in a light airy dining room.
Nothing is too much trouble, Debbie is very knowledgable about the local area and helpful with suggestions of where to eat. When we got caught in a sudden shower of rain she took our wet things to dry for us.
It is situated at the top of the headland between fistral and the harbour making it well situated for a short walk into town where there is plenty of choice for foodies like us. The views are amazing too.
We will be returning and telling all of our friends and family of this tranquil couples B&B.
Almost forgot the well stocked, reasonably priced comfortable self service bar and patio to round off an evening.

The hotel is well positioned, a short walk to the centre but far enough away to be quiet.
The room was beautiful, far better than it appeared in the hotel's website, and the whole place was spotless.
Very warm welcome from Debbie with lots of useful information about the area.
Fabulous and filling breakfast options.
The bed was a little too soft for my liking, but my wife slept well.
We are already talking about returning.

My wife and I Stayed here for the second year running in August. The location is great being up on the Headland and the rooms are well furnished and comfortable. Debbie is a lovely host with lots of information on the local area and things to do. Breakfast is superb with loads of choice. We will stay here again when we visit Newquay next and i would recommend this over some of the larger hotels in the area. Great value for money.

Stay at the hotel with my husband for 4 nights, it is a great hotel, can not find fault with anything, the breakfast was fab, our room was lovely.
The owners can not do enough for you.
I'm recommending to everyone I know it was that good!

This is a lovely b&b. The owners have refurbished the rooms to a very high standard. There is an attractive self service bar ands seating area with an outside patio. The lighting in this area is a particular feature. Breakfast is has a choice of cereal with fresh fruit. Your own jug of orange juice, and pot of tea or coffee. The cooked breakfast is delicious Full English or scrambled egg and salmon. The car park is right next door - you od have to pay extra for this. There are plenty of places to teat nearby and a great view over Newquay. Its relatively on the outskirts so easy to access if you are touring.

My wife and I spent 3 nights at the Carton in Newquay in August. We really enjoyed our stay there and it was a pleasant change from the large hotels I stay at often for business. The lovely couple who run the hotel could not do enough for us and the room was very comfortable. Newquay was a good choice for exploring Cornwall, being central to some lovely areas. Had a nice dinner at the The Harbour just up the road, reccomended.

Me and my partner booked a weeks stay at the Carlton last minute before travelling to Newquay and Debbie (owner) could not have been more helpful. She was so welcoming and accommodating.

The hotel has parking at a very small fee and is ideally placed near enough the town so you can walk there with ease to get anything you want, but far enough that you don't hear a sound of the youths in the town coming in and out of clubs and bars.

The rooms are very nice and comforting. The lounge and dinning area is wonderful, The owners really has made this place a home from home for all their guests.

Breakfast is lovley with a decent selection to choose from. Getting a good meal in the morning really allows you to get the most out of your day if your the adventurous type.

The hotel bar is very reasonably priced and is a nice place to sit and unwind after a long day.

The owners are extremely nice and are also brilliant tour guides, giving us tips on places to eat and things to see.

Definetly deserves a revisit!
