“Superb Hotel- The Best We Have Stayed In”
Reviewed January 11, 2010

Beautiful Hotel furnished to a very high standard in every way. The owners Phil and Helen could not have looked after us better, The Breakfast was just wonderful. Our accommodation was superb and we cannot wait to visit again during the year.

Cannot fault this place at all - huge, gorgeous, impeccable room, friendly hosts for whom nothing is too much trouble and who make a great breakfast, quiet location with off-street parking; free wifi and all kinds of thoughtful extras, and a fantastic price. One of the nicest places I've ever stayed and it could easily tempt me back to the area.

Excellent Gem of a B&B. 5 star all the way. Would definitly recommend and would stay there again. Proprietors Helen and Phil are fantastic. Made you feel very welcome. On arrival we were met by Helen who showed us our room, No9. Great room, lots of windows over looking the garden, large room with lots of storage space also a safe. TV, DVD player with DVD's in room, magazines. Hair dryer, bath robes, fridge with milk and coffee, tea and hot chocolate with biscuits. Beautiful bathroom, with power shower, heated towel rail, lovely towels, lots of added extras in bathroom room, shampoo etc., Huge bed which was lovely to sleep in. Very comfortable. Lots of lovely pillows. The room and bathroom were very very clean. The house and the decor were beautiful. Breakfast was cooked by Phil and was lovely, lots of choice from different teas, fresh coffee, fresh fruit, yogurts, choice of cooked items, toast and jams. Helen was a wonderful host and made sure that you were kept 'topped' up on everything. No kids are allowed at the hotel, which is great, I do have children but it is nice to get away without them at times. We ate at the Bombay Express on the Friday night as recommended by Helen and Phil, 5 minute walk from Carlton Court and the food there was stunning. Also a great price, we had the set menu for 2 people at £26.95 - to much food we could not eat it all. Not to far from Torquay town, 25 minute walk or a few minutes drive. Lots of shops, bars and places to eat. Close to a nice beach as well. Would definitly recommend this hotel to stay at and we would stay there when visiting Torquay again. Thank you Helen and Phil for a lovely weekend.

Returned today after a 2 night much needed break. We wanted a chilled weekend and we certainly got it. Quiet, peaceful and relaxing. The breakfast is first class. The room was a superior double( N0 8). It was spotless. The bed was really comfortable, so were the pillows. Quality tea, coffee and biscuits in the room. Also a fridge with fresh milk...not those nasty UHT pots that you cant open without it spurting everywhere! Luxury towels and even bath robes.
We ate in the Bombay Express indian restaurant which is 5 mins walk. This was recommended by Helen the owner ,and it was delicious. there was just 2 of us and our bill was £29,95. Cooked fresh, with good service and surroundings, very modern and clean. We had drinks in the Bull and Bush pub just down from the indian. Very friendly with a good atmosphere, but our meal there on the second night was pretty disgusting. £15 for 2 main meals and we were still hungry. Avoid that one! Overall we were very pleased with the Carton court, and satisfied that we had value for money. Helen and Phil work hard to please and we will definatley be back in the future.

I stayed in room 9 with my partner for three nights in September.

It's in a quiet location - about a 10-15 minute walk from the main town centre, but you can get to the sea front in about 5 minutes. Torre railway station is also about a 5 minute walk away with connections to Paignton and Exeter.

Phil and Helen were very welcoming and provided any information you needed about the area and how to find your way around. The reception area is full of leaflets of places to visit and things to do and there's some useful information provided in the room including recommended restaurants and reviews.

Breakfast was great with a varied choice - from fresh fruit to Full English to 'something' on toast. More than enough to get you ready for the day!

The room itself was spotlessly clean (as was the rest of the building!). Complimentary shower gel etc was provided and replaced everyday. The towels were soft as were the bath robes. The room has a fridge - fresh milk is provided everyday and you receive complimentary bottles of water on arrival. The only negative comment I would make is about the fridge - it did 'hum' rather loudly through the night!

Although The Carlton Court is slightly more expensive than other B&Bs in the area, I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for a short stay in Torquay - it was worth every penny! A perfect location to explore Torquay from!
