Great location really near town but very quiet. Had a twin room room which was a bit on the small side for 4 nights but had been very nicely and thoughtfully refurbished. We were offered an upgrade to a triple room. The owner was very helpful as were all the Staff, particularly Dawn and Nick. We ate one night in the restaurant which was very nice and the breakfast was excellent.
Would stay here again.

Thank you Mike and your staff for looking after us so well during our stay. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming, nothing was too much trouble.

The decor is very tasteful. I enjoyed looking at all the posters of the London shows location throughout. The qwerky lift made me smile.

There was a good variety of food each morning and evening.

Our room on the 3rd floor was a bit on the small side, however it was fine for our needs and it was newly refurbished, clean and the bed was comfortable. Nice thick towels in the bathroom.

Located very close to the town the hotel was excellent overall.

First time we have eaten here since its refit but certainly won't be the last. The food was absolutely wonderful. Hot,perfectly cooked and well presented. The staff were welcoming and friendly. The decor was light and airy. All in all really enjoyed it and will be returning soon. The only slight recommendation we would make to the management would be to provide a nice local traditional draught beer.

Thank you for the really positive review Denise, we are delighted you enjoyed Father's Day with us and that you will be returning which, we hope is really soon. There is a large selection of local bottled beers available from the bar, sadly we do not have enough consumption to warrant a draft facility but we do appreciate your feedback - Michael R

53 of us, a Ramblers group, recently stayed for one week at the Carlton on a bed, breakfast and evening meal basis. The hotel has undergone recent refurbishment (there are just a few rooms still to be done). All were very well appointed and comfortable although it has to be said that some were small. Beds were comfortable and all rooms very clean. Most had fridges, iron, ironing boards and fans as well as tea and coffee. The public rooms downstairs have been imaginatively and attractively refurbished also. There is a small gym, library and drying facilities of there is poor weather. The breakfast was a buffet first course and toast. The main course was beautifully cooked and served. Portion sizes were good. Menus in the evening were three courses and varied. Dishes were hot, well cooked and attractively presented. Some of the portions were large and defeated even the heartiest of appetites after a ten mile walk. Every member staff was pleasant and professional. Nothing was any trouble for them.
The hotel is very conveniently situated for the waterfront, museum, beach tunnels and central Ilfracombe.
I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to other Ramblers, families and couples. We all thoroughly enjoyed it.
