First of all, location. The hotel is a 30 Euro ride to downtown or to the train station, each way. There is nothing close to the hotel to walk to. No places to eat, shop or visit are nearby. Breakfast is around 20 euros and is not horrible but not great either. There is no choice in the morning unless...

Dear gregntommy, Thank you very much for your extensive review. It is very much appreciated. It helps us improving our quality constantly.

The bus stop is next...

I did not stay here. I just had Christmas Dinner here with my Wife and her Family. Hotel and Restaurant was lovely. Food was a buffet and extremely tasty. It seemed to start off a little slow in terms of service with the food. But to be honest I will be back here soon. It is a little more expensive...

Old-fashioned hotel quite far from the city center. It is connected by bus, but be careful, the hotel is on the city line edge and if taking a bus from closest stop you may be asked to pay bigger cost. The rooms are fully equipped, but 2 or 3 times I have not found bottles with water and some bath...

Hotel is not new but very comfortable and quiet. It is being renovated from the outside. Rooms are comfortable and well equiped with cosy beds and bathrooms with tub and cabin. Breakfast with artificial scrambled eggs made from powder was not too tasty.

This was our third visit to the Carlton and although the breakfast and accommodation were of the same good standard, we felt that the evening meal had gone down in quality quite a lot. We were not given the option of the set menu by the waiting staff, which would have been better value for us. The food was ok...

The best thing about the hotel is that is located close to several big offices where you might have business, otherwise it is rather far from the city. The rooms are correct, the food is ok. They have a surf 'n turf salad that is terrific
