We were in Ilfracombe for a family party and the Carlton was a great little find that fitted the occasion!
I really didnt know what to expect from the reviews that we have read on here. All I can say is that the decor may look dated. However, it is a Victorian building and therefore the decor fits the period of the property!
The room was comfortable and adequate for what we needed. The only downside was the dawn chorus from the sea gulls! However, this is not the hotels fault of course! Also, dont worry if you hear the church bells - they dont go on all night!
The breakfast was tasty and plentiful. The waiting staff will do all they can to fulfill all of your requests!
A note on the staff...they are some of the best I have met in a hotel! When we arrived (about 11.30am) I asked if we could park in the hotel until the check in. However, the man on reception kindly checked and our rooms were ready for us. He was very friendly and told us all about the local sites including 'Verity!' The same goes for the lady on the desk in the evening. She was kind enough to get us a taxi. It costs £2.50 to go anywhere within the town so its well worth doing if its raining! They really could not do enough to help you!
The hotel did exactly what it said on the tin for us and I would recommend it for a short weekend break or an overnight stay!
