M and I have just returned 28th -30th November 12 from our 6th visit to the Carlton (would have been 9 but fully booked on other occasions). Once again we found the staff in all departments from check in to departure to be polite, efficient and courteous. Our bedroom, was huge as was the bed and bathroom and exceptionally clean, plus fluffy bath robes AND slippers along with all the usual complementary hot drinks and toiletries. We had lovely views onto the Royal Mile from the turret in our bedroom. Breakfasts are plentiful and with a large choice to suit all requirements. It really sets you up for the day. The bar is spacious, and afternoon teas are brilliant.The hotel to very clean in all public areas,and really looks and acts the part of a 4* hotel.
Our only grouse was the on the first night when we dined in the service in the Bridge Restaurant was very slow, mainly due to the total lack of staff on. One (very polite and efficient) waitress taking your order, who, when someone ordered a glass of wine, had to walk all the way to the Bridge bar to obtain it, (This is quite a distance) therefore leaving customers sitting at tables, waiting to give their orders.Plus there only seemed to be one waiter on working from the kitchen which did not help. Dinner menu and food was excellent. Overall a most enjoyable stay and we look forward to our next visit to the Carlton.
