Reviewed 2 September 2010

My husband and I, with our 2 year old toddler, stayed in the self-catering accommodation part of this B&B in Wotton under Edge during a weekend for a relative's wedding and are so glad we chose well. When everyone had to go back to their poky rooms in the nearby hotel, we got a short taxi ride to this accommodation and had our own space (it's about 5 minutes journey from Tortworth Court Hotel).

The accommodation itself is small, but perfectly formed. There is a large inglenook fireplace that accommodates a lot of books from romance novels to comics, plus a TV that has freeview (but this isn't the best and does 'scramble' rather a lot). The kitchen is within the same room and has everything you need from butter knives to teatowels. All decorated with accents of poppies from decals on the wall to the lovely coffee cups and crockery.

The bedroom is upstairs in the eaves, with a new en suite shower room (shower is fab, very quick, good pressure!). The stairs meet the bedroom in the middle so the two single beds are either side of it. Our little boy had just gone into a bed at home so the owners very kindly put up another bed a bit further down in the eaves. He didn't like the look of it though because it was a bit dark and I think he was scared so bed-hopped all evening with me! Not the best nights' sleep for me but that's no reflection on the accommodation because my husband slept like a log! It was nice knowing we were all together, but also knowing that there was a downstairs instead of being cooped up in a hotel room. There is a skylight window as well which has a lovely view of the neighbouring fields and houses. It was clean, well equipped, and the beds were very comfortable.

The hosts are very friendly and gave us a complimentary breakfast basket with milk even though this wasn't included in the price. They left us to their own devices but made sure that we knew that if we needed them they were available for us.

Parking wasn't a problem for us but it is a tight squeeze round the back and through the gates in anything larger than a Renault Laguna! The village itself is lovely; you're right on the high street and Tesco is a 2 minute walk for those last minute nibbles you've left at home. There are some lovely quirky shops too, a couple of bakeries and a few nice pubs (but unfortunately we didn't have time to eat in them).

All in all, a wonderful, perfectly formed, clean and modern self-catering home!

This B&B was suggested by family in the village. We were not disappointed as the owners are very friendly, welcoming and helpful. On arrival we learnt that we had been moved to a larger quieter room at the rear of the property at no extra charge, as it was 'A level' results weekend and they anticipated some celebratory noise. We certainly didn't get disturbed and the room we were in was beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable with tea and coffee making facilities. Free view TV reception was poor, but this was possibly due to stormy weather at time. Wifi available and good. The breakfast menu is simple but extremely good - the best full English we've ever had. Can also recommend the smoked salmon and scramble egg. When back in Wotton will definately visit again.

Three of us stayed together in a charming room at the top of the house with big comfortable beds, plenty of space and everything we needed. The hosts were very pleasant and the breakfast good. The only minor drawback was the fact we had to park our car on the street as there was a full house and the patio had just been repaired, no dramas at all except for those of us who worry about getting parking tickets, which didn't happen. I would definitely recommend this B&B, it was of a high standard and provided for a lovely start to our tour of the Cotswolds. We had a good meal in the pub at the top of the road and visited two other very different pubs on the way back down the hill to the B&B.

My friend and i couldnt book our normal guest house in Wotton under Edge, but upon arrival and meeting of the owners Pauline and Peter we knew we werent going to be let down. Firstly we arrived in the morning after dropping off my mates motor bike for a service in nearby Cromhall and immediately taken to our rooms where we refreshed after travelling nearly 300 miles in all our motor cycle gear on probably the hottest day of the year. We went for lunch to The Royal Oak where we had a ploughmans, came back to the guest house to get ready to go out for the night and met for the first time the owners, what a lovely charming couple couldnt do enough for us. We asked for some more tea bags for our room which they left outside the room when we arrived back late at night but with more fresh milk and a big fan to help cool the room down, god did we need it that night. In the morning we went downstairs to have our breakfast wow what a breakfast, Pete you could always become a chef if you need to.We only stopped the one night but we will be going again because we go to Gloucester every couple of years. But also i will be going before that and take my wife for a long weekend. If you happen to be that way on your journey stay at the Carlton House you will not be let down. See you soon Peter and Pauline.From your biker customers Steve and Neil.

My husband and I stayed at Carlton House for a friend's wedding last weekend. We stayed for one night, bed and breakfast.

The building itself is fantastic and full of history and character. It's a 17th century building which has a long history and interesting history. It was originally built as a merchants house, it has also been used as a communications base during the war, a secondary school, divided into offices for various small businesses including a dentists and a printers. It's owners Pauline White and Peter Roberts are extremely welcoming and friendly people. They were very happy to tell us about the building and answer any questions we had about the local area.

Based on Long Street, Carlton House is about as central to the town centre as you can get and ideally situated for nearby pubs, restaurants and shopping. It's a small town itself so the variety of shops are somewhat restricted, but is about 30 minutes drive from larger shopping towns such as Gloucester and Bristol. Wotton-under-egde is surrounded by beautiful Cotswold countryside and the popular walking route The Cotswold Way running right through it.

Breakfast was generous and delicious and served in a beautiful breakfast room. Local produce is used where possible and this included fabulous homemade jams and marmalade. The lounge was also a great place to sit and enjoy coffee. There are beautiful alcoves in the lounge and the house has been restored to a very high standard. The original staircase and doors remain adding to the wonderful character of the place.

We stayed in a small double bedroom which was very warm and cosy. A television and tea and coffee making facilities were provided. The bathroom too was spotless and modern in design.

As well as the bed and breakfast accommodation there is separate self-catering accommodation.

Carlton House has everything we wished for and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone wishing to explore the Cotswolds. We'll be back!
