“Wedding stay”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

We Stay here for 2 nights for a friends wedding that was at tunnels beach, we like this hotel as it was just steps away from tunnels beach, I must say it was on the hottest day that the UK saw and the owns got us a fan for our room, that was thoughtful. Our room was very clean and just right for a short stay. The whole hotel was clean and very tidy. We stayed as bed & breakfast and we order our breakfast and the waitress would go through one door and before you know it...she was coming thought another as fast as that...it was funny, just as long as you don't get your breakfast thrown at you (hot) like this waitress did to me...and what was most upsetting she did not even apologies as she was so embarrassed. I would go there again ,only because it was such a clean hotel.

Always a nice welcome and help from the staff. Checkin easy and no drama. It's not a business hotel so don't expect those amenities but there is wifi in reception area. When travelling I can stay at any hotel at any price but still return here for my visits to family in Ilfracombe. Good location. Good old fashioned service and atmosphere. I like it.

My husband and I booked this hotel online for a two day stay last week end. On arrival we received a warm welcome from the owners Clare and Austin. Our room was bright, clean and spacious with a large comfortable bed. We slept extremely well and thoroughly enjoyed breakfast which was served quickly and effciently by two cheerful and chatty waitresses. Although there was a bus trip in residence for a Turkey and Tinsel break this did not interfere at all with our week end. In fact we really enjoyed the christmas entertainment on both nights.

Thanks to all involved in delivering an excellent customer experience. We shall certainly return.

Stayed here with Easton's holidays on a 5 day coach tour, hotel was a 2 star and we normally stay 3 or 4 star, however I would say the service and friendliness are clearly 5 star particularly from the owners them selves who manage it, all passengers 38 in total had no complaints, food was excellent hot plates and good English wholesome food servers every night, our waitresses were so friendly and joyful and were entertaining as well, hope to stay here again, well done all at the Carlton
