This is an amazing old hotel full of character. I love the bar and the lounge rooms and the dinning room. A great place to relax and drink cocktails.

We stay here a lot. We love the Carrington. The hotel is beautiful. Our room was a little disappointing, a bit tired. But still clean and nice. Everything was great but the staff in the bar are rude and hostile. We have never experienced this at the carrington before. The rest of the staff were fantastic. One girl in particular with long brown hair and a face like a slapped bottom. She needs to smile, learn how to speak to customers and become friendly.

It was a wonderful stay in a building of such charm and character. Only disappointment was the wet weather, and lack of undercover access. Hopefully the next time we come it will be fine weather.

Great location and beautifully restored. Love the open fire and lounge area although a little too heated at times. Staff were very helpful and pleasant.

LOVE this hotel! The Carrington is the absolute best, and is everything (and more) that a hotel should offer it’s guests. Yes it’s a gorgeous historic hotel with lots of charm to be explored, but that’s just the start. The management and staff also get everything else perfect as well. The rooms are very clean, bathrooms renovated, warm heating, staff super friendly and helpful, there’s lots of great spots to sit by the fire or quiet lounge areas to relax in, easy parking, and it’s in the middle of town so it’s easy to explore. I could go on forever about this beautiful hotel.
