This is a review about the Carlton Club (timeshare apartments) and not the hotel.

Stayed for a night at this delightful hotel in Bournemouth, the staff were lovely. We got upgraded to Room 313 which is enormous. You get a separate living area, separate bedroom and a large ensuite. All very clean. You have the facility to step out onto the balcony for breathtaking sea views. The staff were most helpful and friendly. We...

The restaurant is also more vibrant and appealing. Thanks to the excellent...
