Padmaja wrote a review Mar 2021
Wolverhampton, United Kingdom14 contributions1 helpful vote
£96 pounds over an over night stay in a king sized room but the Air con was noisy all night long. I had asked for a room with bathtub and was assured at the reception that my room has a bathtub but to my surprise I got a shower instead. Worse part was that after my shower the entire bathroom was flooded and it was difficult to walk on dirty shower water after cleaning myself. On informing the reception in the morning , the receptionist politely replied that it's normal here and some of the rooms leak and flood and they are aware of it but what to do. Highly DISAPPOINTED

Dear Padmajadas Many thanks for taking the time to review the hotel – we accept all forms of feedback, both positive and negative as it helps improve on our service With regards to your request for a bathtub; due to the hotel only having a limited number of rooms that have this feature, it is not always that we can meet this request. I do thank you for brining the leaking shower to our attention as we are able to carry out preventative maintenance to ensure that this does not happen again I will address your comments to the response you got upon check out with our Front Office Manager and the team – as this is not the usual service level, we provide I do hope that we can welcome you back to the hotel in the not too distant future Kind regards Claire Livingston | General Manager

Hotel's Favourite
After selling our house and before moving to new home, we had to find somewhere to stay for 10 nights. Stepping up to the mark was the Carlton Hotel, lovely spacious room, great breakfast setting us up for the day. Claire and the rest of the team made us feel very welcome and safe in the Covid days. Yes it was a limited service and we did expect that but if we had any requests we just had to ask and they were full filled. A huge thanks to everyone at the hotel, it’s not easy for anyone but you are doing a great job and we are very grateful for it.

I stay in the Carlton for work. I stayed for the whole week. The staff are all very helpful and friendly. The pandemic is affecting everyone but the staff are doing their absolute best to ensure that everyone has as normal a stay as possible. Well done. Full marks. I will stay again, very very soon.
