    I was terribly disappointed with my visit to carton house. When we first arrived at 2.30 our room was not ready. No valet parking Dirty lobby floors Dinner was not up to standard Walk to hotel room was approx ten min walk from lobby. Small bar, guests drank mainly in hotel lobby which was freezing!! Completely overpriced.

    I loved Carton House! The staff, rooms, spa, food and grounds are all brilliant. It is a great place for getting away from it all and for utter relaxation.

    Nothing, I cannot fault it.

    The location would have been lovely had this not been for the weather. Couldnt use the grounds or tennis courts because of severe rain which made it quite hard work. The pool was therefore too busy with young children till 7.30pm on an evening.

    Both my daughter and I went for an exspensive treat after her sitting 9 stressful gcses. When we booked into the hotel on the Thursday we were told they didnt do waxing, tinting, hd brows or st tropez tans, just plain message and facials. They were very limited on availability and only I managed to get a facial and massage at 10.30am on saturday morning. Massage was very good but we were looking forward to being really pampered and coming home looking glowing. This did not happen. Lovely location ruined by weather and lots of kids therefore in the pool which we therefore didnt use. Food very very limited to real choice. Main restaurant very little choice with select 5 chice of a la carte menu so only ate one night at golf club house. Lovely waitress and food presented although she also admitted all staff thought the restaurant and other peolpe that usually went in to the club house mentioned what poor choice it was so much improvement required there. Think this hotel suits anniversary couples, adult birthday treats, golfer weekends romantic weekends. Would not aim at girly weekends as so limited.

    The location is beautiful and the countryside surrounding the house is so scenic. It maintains old-style service in a contemporary setting. The spa was excellent and the restaurant was good too. While there were quite a few families there, the atmosphere was calm and relaxed and the children were well behaved. A perfect location for a romantic night away.

    I had no mobile phone coverage at all. While it is nice to retreat from the world. I would still like to be able to connect with it and be contactable, if necessary. Also, the Wifi connection in the bedroom was very poor.

    We liked everything about the Carton House. The price was excellent and the golfing was great. Everybody was extremely helpful and kind. The breakfast was wonderful. We will definitely return to the Carton House Hotel. It would also be a great place for a destination wedding.

    Loved every moment of our stay at Carton House. The warm welcome we got at reception set the tone for our stay, friendly and attentive staff throughout, luxurious accommodation, delicious food in the Linden Tree restaurant. Only stayed one night, not nearly long enough, look forward to returning and would recommend.

    I was very disappointed that the main rooms of the Carton House are in a very unattractive building next to the beautiful old building, which was hardly in use. The setting itself is nice only that the guest just face walls or parking slots wherever they look. The very popular kitchen bar was only open late evenings and the pool facilities reminded me more of a school swimming pool than a luxury hotel swimming area. I felt that the potential of this Carton House, with the space and beautiful setting is not used to its best.
