This trip I did a park, fly then stay at the Carlton Inn. I cannot say enough good about the hotel, the improvements they've made and especially their service. They go out of their way to make their guests stay as comfortable and convenient as possible. Their shuttle service is the best I've ever experienced. The drivers are timely and...

This was my first time staying at this hotel and where do I begin? With the excellent customer service? The cleanliness of the rooms? The close proximity to shops and restaurants? This hotel has customer service down to the very last detail. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. The rooms where fully stocked and clean. The shuttle guys...

Cozy and clean rooms. Friendly staff. We used the park and fly option which was good priced. They had our car running and waiting for us with cold bottled waters and snacks. Thank you Carlton Inn for your hospitality.

My room was very comfortable. The sofa is a nice touch. Who wants to sit on the edge of the bed or a straight chair? The staff is very friendly. I've come to know some of them through the years. And the resident dog make the place seem like home. I took my bags to the Inn around noon so...

The Hotel is clean and partially renovated. Good breakfast, good sized rooms & comfortable beds. But the people are what makes the place 5 stars. We got in very late but they took such good care of us. There was security visible and we felt safe there. The night desk lady is the sweetest person, and so helpful. The men...

Unexpected delay because Ofcancelled flights gave us the opportunity to spend the night at the Carlton Inn . Very clean rooms and the hotel staff were very helpful. Our driver, Steve not only picked us up at the airport but also was kind enough to recommend a local pizza cafe that was great. Will certainly stay at the Carlton Inn...

When we booked we did not know what to expect. Whilst arriving in the rain seeing the dark outside of the hotel was a little bit creepy. The check-in staff was very professional and helpful. Given the long stay we had booked they gave us very quiet rooms which haven been very fair. The rooms are quite nicely poshed up...
