Staff very helpful and friendly. Wonderful freshly cooked breakfast - excellent.
Room very old and worn. Although sheets and towels were clean, the room was grubby, bed very old, worn and matress lumpy and uncomfortable. Spider web in the bedside lamp and toilet had not been flushed or cleaned after last occupant.
Excellent breakfast. Helpful/very pleasant staff. Room lovely and warm. Towels changed daily.
Very tired property. Threadbare carpets. Stairs to the second floor are ridiculously steep and awkward. Bath and shower curtain grubby and mouldy grouting.
Good WiFi, Great Breakfast, good location, room basis but clean and helpful staff
Curtain very dusty, No shampoo or glass provided in the room.
Friendly and hardworking staff.
staff were very helpful and would try and do what ever you wanted
I enjoyed my stay at Carlton. The hotel is very clean. I recommend it!
Extremely friendly & helpful host & staff. Ideal location for shopping in the Town Centre. Great choices at breakfast, fresh fruit. fruit juices, cereals, cheese, yoghurt, porridge, cooked english breakfast ( turkey bacon though), toast etc. Tea, coffee or fruit/herb teas. Hospitality offered makes up for other issues at this hotel.
Parking on forecourt possibly a bit tight for access as parking bay on busy main road opposite hotel. Although cleanliness could be better (decor needs a lift & mould on mastic in shower) it is certainly not the worst I have visited in this price range.
Liked the service and quietness.
Didn't like the outlook but was minor detail.
Good customer service and early breakfast as well.
The room I stay in had an unpleasant stench. I had to open the windows.
close to town centre, on site parking
room desperately in need of updating, beds in very poor condition
we were made welcome and the cook was very helpful, friendly and approachable nothing was too much trouble, she also took time with a guest who'd had a very recent bereavement, a lovely lady.
the shower was to say the least grotty and telly reception was rubbish, and kept freezing.

The staff were nice and so was the breakfast. The free wifi made the stay bearable
The constant sound of a water pump or heating system switching on and off for all of my one night stay. Couple that with a less than comfortable bed doesn't promote a good nights sleep.
Decent quality - clean, crisp sheets. Not a rip-off if you simply want a lovely bed for the night.
Peeling wallpaper, very tired decor (not dirty) just falling to bits. And what on earth is "Turkey Bacon" for breakfast ? It was artificial, plastic and vile. A great pity as the rest of the breakfast and service was excellent. This "hotel" really needs a quick spruce up - it really could do much better in terms of decor. It even has a 1970s purple patterned carpet in the hall. Nostalgia maybe but it just looks terrible. Even contractors staying said it was a bit "tired." Typical Britain - we just don't care do we? They could charge at least 10.00 more per room after a quick makeover; but again, that's Britain.
Convenient for town. Provides basic but good accommodation and a good cooked breakfast etc for a reasonable amount. I've been a number of times and have found it to be good each time.
Parking can be a bit hit and miss when available. Shower was awkward to use and lacked much power.
the lady serving breakfast was friendly, chatty and efficient. Just what you want first thing in the morning.
Location not far from Town Center, so walking wasn't a problem and a cab was cheap if you needed one. Staff very pleasant and very helpful. The accomodation suited our needs. Free parking was a good touch.
Room was dated and windows a little drafty. Breakfast was okay, but would've preferred proper bacon and not sure what we were served. They has also ran out of mushrooms which was a shame. Didn't really like the bedsheets, would've preferred a duvet instead of sheet and blankets.
The bathroom was dirty and needed an upgrade. The substantial breakfast was spoilt by missing items - no poached eggs on the first day, no mushrooms on the second day.
From the minute we arrived until we left staff were very friendly and helpfull. Breakfast excellent, freshly cooked to order and so much choice. Excellent value for money, wouldn't think twice about staying there again.
Could do with coat of paint, but then again we've paid lots more and had lot worse rooms.
staff always courteous, close to town centre.
old fashioned television with digi-box , poor picture and noisy making it unwatchable.
The location, fair breakfast and staff very friendly.
Excellent centre location, free car parking, good value for money.
Interior of hotel requires an urgent redecorate, not been touched in years.
We really liked the quiet location of the hotel and the fact that it was very close to the shopping street. At night the street was extremely quiet, there was tea and coffee in the room and after a long day of traveling it was a great place to spend the night.
