What our guests say...

My wife and family and friends have been coming to the Carlton for many years. Bob and Anne are so friendly to us all when we stay with them.
Every room is lovely and clean and decorated beautifully - we had a balcony room with garden AND sea view - marvellous. You have the whole bay stretched out in front of you - from the Culver across to the Luccombe headland.
We've just returned from a 5 night break at the Carlton Hotel and, as fairly seasoned travellers, I can honestly say that I have never stayed in the UK in such a welcoming wonderful place.."

This was our 9th visit to The Carlton and we are booked for 2017. The accommodation is very well maintained, clean and tidy. The views from the garden and balcony rooms are superb. ."
