Fantastic Deli Takeaway

First, visit to my parents after four months due to lockdown, we ordered a deli menu delivery so we could share the special occasion in their garden while self-distancing. The Carlton Hotels deli offers a fantastic choice of menus and we chose menu D which they then carefully ensured met our dietary requirements. Delivered, freshly made, this is a great way to eat out whilst locked in. Or, after lockdown, a luxury picnic or pre-prepared lunch. Westcountry portion sizes too! We loved all the dishes but my favourites were the aubergine rolls, pork and apricot sausage rolls and scotch egg. We will be back.”

Great stay at The Carlton Hotel

“Michael was an amazing and friendly host in what can only be described as very challenging conditions at the moment. The hotel has adapted well to the current guidelines so don’t be afraid whatsoever with any upcoming stay. Perfect location for Tunnels Beaches. Food was great. The hotel was very tidy and modern. Thank you, Michael and Team.”

Great location, clean, great food and family friendly

What a lovely hotel! Great service from start to finish and the staff were extremely accommodating. We visited the day it reopened after lockdown, for a short trip away with my husband and two children (3.5 and 19 months) they upgraded our room to one of the newly refurbished rooms which were spacious and had two beds in it a large king-size and a single bed ( room 105). The room had a safe, hairdryer and mini-fridge, handy to put milk in for the children and due to cleaning restrictions, they provide sashes of shampoos, soap and shower gel. Lots of hand sanitiser stations all over the hotel. Free parking on site. And a lift to access all floors. Overall, id definitely be returning with my family to Carlton Hotel again.

Fantastic space to encourage relaxed conversation

Really want to thank you, not only for the fantastic space we had at our disposal yesterday, it felt just right to encourage a very relaxed conversation, but also because of how well you treated us yesterday. I’ve never been much into hotels – but I do appreciate them when they feel just right / and the Carlton did just that.
You guys are doing an excellent work there, my congratulations.
Again, thanks.

Lovely hotel and great food

We stayed at the Carlton over a weekend with other family members. The rooms were stylish and comfortable with very nice on suite facilities. The staff made us feel very welcome and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. The food in the hotel restaurant was outstanding, we ate there on both nights and the full English breakfast was cooked to perfection. Ilfracombe is a lovely seaside town set in beautiful scenery and the wonderful Woolacombe beach is just a few minutes away in the car.
