“A great find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2014

Recently stayed here and was thoroughly impressed. Debbie is front of house and greets you with a warm welcome. The rooms are spacious and clean. Nice fluffy cream towels in the bathroom. There was also a towel for us girls for when we take our make up off so as not to ruin the cream ones. Nice touch. In addition to an earlier comment about extra shelf space in the bathroom it would have been good to have more towel rails or even a heated towel rail to dry the towels.But that minor change doesn't detract from the scoring. Another nice touch was the provision of a heat mat for straighteners.
Breakfast was good. Quality sausages and bacon on plates hotter than the sun and not swimming in grease as so often happens. The cinnamon toast with fresh fruit was a nice alternative.
There was a well stocked honesty bar and a comfy lounge to sit and drink in
Debbie and Mr Debbie (sorry didn't get to meet you so don't know your name) will rinse and dry your surf boards and wet suits or dry your walking gear and boots for you as well.
All in all a very enjoyable stay and would have no hesitation in recommending The Carlton.

Room Tip: This isn't the place for you if you're trendy hip young things.

We stayed 2 nights in the Carlton room that overlooks the main road with a huge bay window. This room has new bedding and a huge bathroom. It is all very clean and comfortable. The duvet was much too heavy for us and Debbie was very willing and able to make a change to suit us. The only suggestion for the room is to add some shelving in the bathroom. The single glass shelf above a pedestal sink just doesn't give enough room for all the things travelers need in a bathroom. That said, the towels were huge and fluffy and the rest of the bathroom was very nice. The breakfast was the standard fare plus two different continental breakfasts; the savory one was perfect for me! The hotel is well located to walk just a few blocks to some good places to eat. The restaurant and pub recommendations in the room are much appreciated. Finally, the hotel is next to two parking areas, making it very easy for people with cars. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

Wow... As we walked into this stunning hotel we felt so welcome! The hotel itself is stunning and extremely clean throughout!

The hospitality was A*.... Thank you Debbie!

Our room was perfect.... Traditional finish and beautifully presented.

Breakfast was brilliant, with alternative choices if desired! Debbie also took note we were not tomato fans, therefore didn't serve them on the following mornings.... Nice touch!

Thank you for a wonderful stay, we will most definitely return!

Have a great, busy season! :)

This has to be one of the most relaxing trips I have had to Cornwall.

Me and my fiancé arrived with my mum and dad and were greeted warmly by Debbie, our stay only got. Better!! I could not fault any part of our stay.


Rooms were immaculate, breakfast was amazing and the hosts were friendly and made us feel at home. We will be visiting again.

We stayed for a family wedding in July. We had cold called in the previous autumn to take a look and were welcomed and shown round. From the first moment we knew we would book. To find a typically warm and direct Yorkshire welcome in Cornwall was refreshing . Being a Yorkshireman returning to Cornwall where I had lived and worked for many years, the welcome given and ambience felt was reassuring. First impressions proved correct and our stay for a family wedding was excellent. The rooms, breakfast, honesty bar, lounge were all the best quality. Our hosts were attentive and took note when I was ill and laid up for several hours. If you want to stay in Newquay stay here, if you can get in. Looking at the Guest Book I suspect it will become harder each year as those in the know return !

Having always taken our holidays abroad we thought a stay in the UK would make a change. I was not sure we had made the right decision with Cornwall as I did not take to it at first, but when Debbie found out she turn into the best travel guide Cornwall could offer making our 10 day stay a very enjoyable one... The Hotel is first class...Very clean & well decorated...not far from many of Newquays Shops...Pubs & Restaurants. Also superb views of the coast line a minutes walk away. The Breakfast could not be bettered for selection of food and quality...cooked & served to perfection. We would return without question...You will struggle to find a better place for couples to stay. You may also see Mark if you are Lucky ;-)

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are available but all the rooms we viewed were a very high standard.

We were greeted warmly by Debbie and immediately offered an upgrade, due to a cancellation, to a larger room. We decided however, to stay in original room (3), as there was a sea view and it seemed generally brighter. Everything was very clean and the bed was most comfortable, managed to get a good nights sleep every night. The breakfast coffee was excellent and the choice of food was great, wish I had a bigger appetite first thing in the morning. The car park was very convenient being right next door and we had no trouble finding space, whether this is the case in high season, I'm not sure. We would definitely return here and would recommend to anyone visiting the area.

Room Tip: One slight niggle with Room 3, the bathroom was a little cosy with nowhere to put wash bags but othe...
