    One night family stay in Oct 20

    Unfortunately the opportunity to review this hotel properly was taken away from us when Lancashire went into tier 3 COVID 19 restrictions. We did not stay to conform to UK government direction and the hotel declined to refund or change our booking. It was a shame that the customer service was very poor during all 3 of our calls with mixed and incorrect information. Often blaming the booking agency. Maybe next time! or maybe not!

    Very Good

    Bedroom as pictured. Bathroom bit more dated but absolutely fine. Was spacious and very clean. Lovely view of the sea front. Tram stop opposite and only a 5 minute walk to the centre. Will stay again.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Best Western Carlton never ceases to impress us. With first class service from all the team. We received a warm welcome from Chris in reception. Dee couldn’t do enough to assist if we needed anything for our room. The end of the evening Jonny made sure we were well in time for our “night cap” and was there to greet us for breakfast, going the “extra mile” to make us feel valued and safe. With this first class service, we will definitely be returning to the BW Carlton and recommending it to friends and family. Thanks to all the team fir making our stay so enjoyable.
