Ilfracombe is a lovely place to go for a weekend away and staying at the Carlton was like being in a home away from home. We were made to feel so comfortable and welcome. It is a dog friendly hotel with beds and bowls provided in room. The Dinners and breakfasts are great with lots of fresh well cooked dishes...

Loved staying at this hotel. We had heard it was dog friendly and it was our first trip with our little dog. We were all made so welcome. The owners are currently refurbishing the hotel. We stayed in a superior room, the bed was huge, very comfy and the room and en-suite were spotless. We were allowed to view some...

Another wonderful stay at this excellent hotel. Michael, the owner showed us round the newly refurbished rooms. They are amazing. The new library is very comfortable and relaxing. Our bedroom, although not yet refurbished, was spotlessly clean & a good size. The food is first class with a very good choice for breakfast and evening meal. We can't wait to...

This was our third visit to this lovely hotel and we will definitely visit again. Although we just missed the newly refurbished rooms coming online we were lucky enough to get a sneak preview. Not only is this lovely hotel emerging from a state of hibernation but the staff and facilities on offer are just beyond compare to other hotels....
