Ilfracombe is a lovely place to go for a weekend away and staying at the Carlton was like being in a home away from home. We were made to feel so comfortable and welcome. It is a dog friendly hotel with beds and bowls provided in room. The Dinners and breakfasts are great with lots of fresh well cooked dishes...

The Carlton has the charm of a hotel that has been around for years, but the convenience of a city hotel with wifi everywhere and an extremely well equipped gym. The perfect base while in Ilfracombe. I would definitely recommend.
