“Lovely old place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2013

Had lunch here on the weekend, a cool old venue worth going for a wander through.
Lunch was good albeit a bit pricey for what it was, beers on tap were nice.

“Lovely venue, a bit old fashioned”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

I was luckily enough to stay overnight in this historic building for work and was able to explore all through the magnificent hallways and floors. Although it's filled with old-world charm, I did find it in need of some modernising. In the morning I had the continental breakfast serviced down in the main dining room, which made me feel like I had stepped back in time. Although the breakfast was typical and adequate, the decor was stuffy and had a feeling like ghosts of the past were watching us all silently eat our breakfast. A little spooky, but fun. Go visit, for a trip back in time.

“Fantastic wedding reception location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

Beautiful old grand building with remarkable attention to detail.
Facilities and food were superb.
Wait staff could improve either their memory, or order taking skills - drinks were often promised and not delivered. Other than that - we had a great time.

“Lovely continental breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013

Staff friendly and breakfast was really lovely in a stunning dining room. There was an array of food and you could order a hot breakfast at a nominal fee. Worth going to

“Old world with old fashion service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013

Memories for some and a brand new experience for others! The Dining Room at The Carrington Hotel delivers. You step back into the grandeur of the past whilst you dine on the modern. Great service, a pianist, tables set with wide berths, so you are not overheard. A charming experience.
