Stayed here for 5 nights to celebrate our wedding anniversary, rooms lovely, friendly staff couldn’t do enough to please us, food was excellent, room was cleaned every day. Well done to all at the Carlton.
Just returned from a five night visit from the Carlton Hotel Ilfracombe with our Dog Ruby, and all I can say is that our stay was outstanding. Everyone there went out of their way to make us feel welcome, we will definitely be returning
Thanks to everyone
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.
Superb – The only place to go
WOW WOW – just got back from a super stay at the Carlton – with all the refurb throughout the hotel its the only place you should stay in the area. Rooms are fab, stylish quality – food amazing (especially as we have awkward allergies – no issue to assist) – staff so friendly, attentive and professional. This hotel is in a nice quiet road a few mins walk to all the shops, beach and harbour etc. and great access to all nearby places to visit in the area. We will definitely be returning and recommend highly
Gem of a hotel
We’ve just come back from our stay at The Carlton, for 3 nights, to celebrate our wedding anniversary with our 8 month old baby.
We booked a deluxe suite and was not disappointed with what we got! The bed was amazingly comfortable, the bathroom was super clean and overall the room and hotel were well presented. The travel cot provided was also in excellent condition.
The staff couldn’t do enough to please us and accomodate any requests we had. Very friendly and polite. In particular we would like to thank Natasha on reception.
With a baby who can go through nappies the only one comment i would leave for the hotel is our bin was too small and a bigger one would have been better. We felt really bad for the person who cleaned our room daily, leaving rubbish pilled up.
In terms of Illframcombe we wish we had booked more nights as there was a lot to do and Woolacombe beach, barricane beach and tunnel beaches (which were next to the hotel) were all amazing and worth a visit. The views around Woolacombe bay and Illfracombe were simply breathtaking, the weather certainly helped!
Would love to visit Illframcombe again one day.
Pet friendly, with very accommodating staff.
I have two large hairy dogs that were made very welcome. I usually feel self conscious about doggy smells and shedding that I may not notice, even if I try to clean up after them. The staff here welcomed both me and the dogs. They got their own bed in the room, and bowls. There’s a separate place in the restaurant to have breakfast if you have pets and at the bar. It’s close to town and has onsite parking too. There’s some refurbishment going on but that didn’t affect my stay. It was a good base from which to explore north Devon.
Pet friendly Hotel
We booked this hotel to take our Doggo on his first holiday. We stayed her for 2 nights and 3 days. The cleanliness was next level.You couldn’t smell animals at all.3 Adults ,a 10 year old and our dog stayed in un-suit room which was spacious enough for everyone.Micheal at the front desk was very helpful and welcoming.The staff at this hotel were very friendly as well.
Elliott our chef was very accommodating to our kids need and food was delicious.
We will defiantly stay her again.
I am so pleased I chose Ilfracombe and the Carlton Hotel.
I stayed at the Carlton 2 weeks ago and I was not disappointed. I am so pleased that I chose Ilfracombe and subsequently the Carlton Hotel. Michael and his team were welcoming, friendly and extremely helpful. Although my own room was one of the older, dated rooms, it was clean and very comfortable. I was able to park my car with ease and not move it again until I checked out – the hotel is a stones throw from the town centre and harbour so it was wonderful to be able to walk without worries.
Carlton was like being in a home away from home
lfracombe is a lovely place to go for a weekend away and staying at the Carlton was like being in a home away from home. The Dinners and breakfasts are great with lots of fresh well cooked dishes to choose from. If you are going to Ilfracombe, I recommend staying at this hotel, you wont be disappointed.
Fantastic value for money
Dinner and breakfast were fantastic value for money. Dinner was delicious and breakfast was cooked fresh to order.
Owners eager to please and have great plans for the property
The breakfast was excellent- a choice of cereals and fresh fruit and yoghurt; freshly baked croissants and a wide choice of cooked food. Evening meals are good too. Staff are very friendly and eager to please and the owners have great plans for the property. The hotel is in a good location for the town centre, which is a traditional seaside town with a small beach and a harbour.
Dinner was 1st class
Staff were very helpful, dinner was 1st class??. Would use the hotel again.
