HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 27 August 2016

As you travel around the Isle of Wight, or research accommodation and restaurants, all you will see is them claiming to be the Island's 'best kept secret'. They can't be, because this is it! We've just returned from a 5 night break at the Carlton Hotel and, as fairly seasoned travellers, I can honestly say that I have never stayed...

Just come away from the Carlton hotel, how anyone can give this place a negative review is beyond me. Cup of tea on arrival and a very warm welcome! Anne and bob couldn't do enough for us, kept our 1 year old entertained, and sorted out an earlier ferry for us going home. The breakfast was lovely! We will definitely...

Booked a 2 night deal including car ferry through the hotel website. We were given a free room upgrade with a stunning balcony and sea view! Lovely friendly staff, very clean hotel, bedroom and ensuite cleaned and bed made daily. A great breakfast, car parking and a perfect location for exploring the island. Everything we wanted and more! Thank you!

When we went up to our rooms the children were delighted with what...
