We arrived a little before the 3pm check in, but sat in the lounge area with a lovely pot of tea and pot of coffee which was brought to us as quickly as possibly could be. A very friendly greeting, and shown to our rooms not just given the keys. A wonderful breakfast
Warm and friendly host, homely feel. right next door to wedding venue and easy to get to other areas. helpful with all enquiries about the locality.
Very efficient member of staff doing a great job on her own, dealing with every aspect of the guest's requirements a very friendly and helpful person, thank you.
Nothing, all good.
Nearness to the Tunnel beaches where I was attending a wedding
I found the place to be very tired-looking, rather depressing and dilapidated....i.e. rather stuck in the 1970's. The reception area, dining room and guest rooms have seen better days, and are badly in need of modernizing - (even a lick of paint would make the place 'smile' a bit more!) The shower had barely any power, and was not able to provide consistent heat.
I have stayed at this Hotel on several occasions and always found the Hotel to be clean, comfortable and value for money. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food very good. So I had no fears in bringing my Son and his family to stay there for the first time last weekend and we were not disappointed.
The only slight niggle being that the Family room my son had was on the first floor over the entertainment room and although there was a very good entertainer performing on the Saturday night, he played his music until nearly 11.20pm, which made it difficult for my very tired 5yo grandson to go to sleep until he had finished.
Stayed here for 2 nights, got a room each night having booked very late on. Very good price, rooms were clean and breakfast was good. Staff were very helpful.
Bathroom on second night had a slightly dilapidated corner bath with just a hand-held shower attachment. Parking is a bit tight when the hotel is full; quite easy to get blocked in.
Excellent 2 night stay - very friendly and helpful staff - within walking distance of the town - having the car parking was the main reason for choosing the hotel in the first place
We stayed at this hotel for a family wedding and it was perfect for our needs. The staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms were great. Really good value for money.
Excellent breakfast. Great value for money. Good parking. Attentive staff. Quality housekeeping.
Any niggling complaints would be unjustified in this excellent 2 Star hotel.
The staff were very friendly and helpful in all areas and were willing to advise on parking and other difficulties there may have been locally, the bar was reasonably well stocked and there was a lot of space and seating available which was nice not having to sit ontop of other guests
The decor was very dated (holding onto the Victorian era a little too hard) the double bed in the family room was very small (my partner spent most of the night on the single with my 2 year old as had more space) and finally the breakfast was very small and wasn't brilliant to be honest, left feeling hungrier than when you went in.
Staff were very friendly, location great. Breakfast was excellent.
Electric toilets really noisey. Woken by other guests toilet being flushed. Nice hotel but not really worth the money paid. £45 per person was pricey for small room, scuffed furniture.
Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good.
Some of the decoration seemed a little bit dated.
Everything that a hotel should be. We only stayed two nights but we will be staying again when we are in the area. The location and the layout of the hotel was perfect for our stay and the staff were all helpful. Thank you
When arriving at the Carlton the Receptionist was very welcoming, helpful & polite. The room was very clean with tea & coffee making facilities. The Hotel also had Wi-fi and a night bar, very handy when you come back from your late night stroll. The cooked breakfast was very good & staff polite. All in all i would recommend the Carlton when staying in Ilfracombe.
When we came down to breakfast on the Sunday towards the end of the alloted time period, none of the tables had been cleared, so we had to hang around a bit for one to be made up & had to keep asking for missing items such as butter& milk.
Owner of business very helpful and polite Great location for wedding Tunnel Beaches
service was excellent
room in need of updating, shower had no power, old fashioned, off taps.
Very friendly staff, quaint building on a reasonable location
Picky really but, family room we has was quite hot on arrival. Good breakfast but, egg a little under cooked for my wife's liking
It was very clean, and breakfast was lovely.
room small and staff not trained and staff not trained
Nice friendly staff. Nice food. Clean room.
Was warm in the night. Couldn't open the window as it was rowdy outside.
Tasty breakfast, served very quickly, room small but bed very large and comfortable, Quality was high and well run, Staff were friendly and considerate.
On suite bathroom was basic, shower was poor. Door to the room had a very strong spring, and we were unable to stop it slamming, all the other rooms had the same which was disturbing us late at night or in morning.
friendliness of staff.

The hotel was clean and our room was always clean and tidy on our return each evening. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The breakfasts were always served very quickly which was helpful as we were booked on trips.
The shower was difficult to get a sensible temperature and rather slow and we sometimes had difficulty parking, but then the exercise does you good…. : )
Staff Breakfast Free Wi-Fi
Bar area needs some comfy chairs - a bit like a school dining room
