“Amazing hotel, Great service... Highly Recommended”
Reviewed May 20, 2012

The Carlton Hotel is the perfect place to stay on the island if your looking for a stunning location close to the town, with great hosts Ann & Bob, superb food & great atmosphere. We stayed in one of the sea facing rooms with a balcony. The views were amazing and all the rooms are modern in decor, spacious and cater for everything you would need. Really close to the lovely beaches and old village. You could not really ask for a better hotel! I think it would be hard to beat the Carlton and its great value for money. The tea gardens is a great place to grab some lunch with a great choice of food & it's all very delicious! Overall a massive thumbs up, I would recommend anyone to stay here, couples, families, groups.. Ann & Bob are so welcoming & provide fantastic service to all. Thank you for a great stay, I will be back for sure without a doubt!

Room Tip: Sea view rooms with Balcony are superb

we stayed for five nights in this excellent hotel.The hosts and their team were very pleasant and very friendly.The room we had was very clean and spacious with a very modern shower room.
Food that we ate was excellent nicely cooked and well presented.Bob was very helpfull as we had gone to do a few rounds of golf,telling us the better places to play,one being "Osborne house"if the ladies did not play golf they could look round the house..

Have stayed at the Carlton Hotel a few times with my family and extended family over the years and have to say I wouldn't stay anywhere else on the IOW. Its a great loaction with the Old Village within walking distance and the beach literally at your doorstep. A great family atmosphere, with fantastic service and great food. The Deck Tea Gardens are a must in the summer, with its award winning garden and a view that makes you think you could be anywhere in the world . Bob and Anne are great hosts and make you feel very welcome, nothing is too much trouble. Will definately keep coming back.

Room Tip: The balcony rooms have fantastic views over Shanklin Bay, so book early to avoid disappoint!

We stayed here for 4 days with my family and what a lovely hotel this is. The hosts Bob and Ann were so accommodating and nothing was too much trouble for them.

The rooms are beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and welcoming and the views are magnificent. Tea garden view and food was second to none.

Breakfast was superb. We will definitely be returning to this hotel and really was sorry to leave. Keep up the good work Bob and Ann and thank you from us all for a wonderful stay.

We will be back soon.

Room Tip: Rooms 5 & 6 are balcony rooms with the most stunning views

A brilliant family friendly hotel. Bob and Anne are great hosts and make everyone very welcome. We have stayed here two years running and my daughter has said she wants to visit and stay here every year. It is also a great base to travel from and the Old Village is within easy walking distance for shopping, eating out and having a relaxing drink. The bar in the hotel is a great place to relax in an evening too. We will be back - again and again and again .....
Thanks Bob and Anne for making us feel so welcome.
