The hotel is situated adjacent to the beach. There are many bars on the beach and boardwalk.Oscars bar is adjacent to the hotel and Boomers on the beach plays late night rave music beyond 1.30am. When I complained to reception they said the music would play every night not just at the weekends and they couldn't complain until 1am. The air conditioning in the bedroom and earplugs wasn't sufficient to drown out the underlying beat of the music. The hotel strap line said, "hear the sound of the waves and relax" so clearly they need a new line something about loud rave music.This is not what I expected when paying €300 for a room. We checked out a day earlier than planned and the hotel refunded the money plus €100 in compensation. We booked a family room which was well furbished and clean, however this did not compensate for the lack of sleep. We were cycling around Holland so a good night's sleep was essential to ensure alertness when on the bikes. If you are looking for a quiet location then this is not the hotel for you. If you are a party animal then maybe you would have a different response.
We arrived on a hot summer day shortly after a big group had checked out. The desk employee, who was visibly stressed and irritated due to something that happened with group checking out, told me in a short manner that their parking was full. We arrived on two motorcycles so I asked her if she knew another parking where we could safely park our bikes for the night. She did not respond to my question by telling me I could not pay for a spot even if I wanted to but I could drive up to the gate, she would open it and we could try our luck and look for a spot next the bicycle parking. We got there, there was no room left and we had great difficulty parking our bikes. When we arrived back inside the girl had changed her story completely, we suddenly had to pay for both motorcycles without an explanation. The rest of the stay was average, extra costs for breakfast or use of the sauna were too high for our liking.
Great sea view rooms with balcony coffee making facilities , free wifi indoor pool, saunas (2) steam bath, gym fitness centre,located on the beach plenty of activity around this location delicious food and great smugglers bar and grill drinks on the beach club,,,, bliss. Great rooms very clean none of my passengers had a complaint all good everyone happy
We stayed 2 nights during a public holiday beginning of June. Check-in was a little un-personal but fast, the room (after we found it, the signs are unclear) was large and adequate, however the bathroom was very small. Wifi was not optimal. Parking at € 22,00 per night is an insult, and since there was no use for the car during our weekend, we came by train/tram. Breakfast was very good, the breakfast room is too small when the hotel is fully booked. Tables for 2 very close to eachother. We had 1 dinner at the hotel which was very good. But € 3,00 for a coca cola, compared to the minibar rates, is a lot of money. So, our stay had 2 faces, but all in all we enjoyed it. The room, comfort in sleeping, and having a good breakfast were the most important things for us. Sunbeds are available at the hotel's beach club at € 7,50 per bed. There was a group event on Friday June 2nd, which had a big impact on the service at the beach club which was close to non-existant so we chose to have lunch at the neighbouring club. I know that the hotel will look very serious to what is lacking in the service so I trust that our next stay will show improvement. The GM now has a challenge :-)
We opted for the 4 night special and got an upgrade to a deluxe room with boulevard view, great breakfast included and a welcome pack for Euro 10,00 This is our favorite hotel when staying at Scheveningen or in the Hague. Staff always very friendly and helpful, will be back again later this year!
For a business trip it's a very good value ! Spending holidays, I don't know if I would chose this hotel. Rooms are a little bit old fashion. Having said that, the location is awesome and if you have a sea view room, the view is awesome !
I travelled to this hotel with my sister as she had stayed here many times before and enjoyed the experience. She was as disappointed as I was that everyone seemed to be having an off day! The receptionist was abrupt and unfriendly, directions to our room were non existent and we were helped by another guest, not by the staff. The room itself overlooked the entrance to the car park, the décor was dated and refreshments and towels had not been restocked (and took ages to arrive when requested). Breakfast next morning was mediocre and several choices had run out - at 08 00am. My sister will be staying here again next month so I hope that she will be treated more considerately and that all areas of the hotel service will have improved.
just returned from 6 night stay at this hotel. Superb location in that it is close to all amenities, trams and so on but at the end of the busy part of the beach so it is relatively quiet. Room was spacious and clean with good view and despite part of the stay being incredibly busy the hotel accommodated guests well with minimum delays at breakfast, which offered a good selection of fresh food Surprised at a previous review as we were unable to pre book parking space although were eventually told we had one - if you can then I definitely would recommend doing so. Also we arrived on bank holiday Thursday - big mistake traffic horrendous and sat navs ( we tried 3 in the end) directed us away from hotel - if you are driving check on a map first - hotel is easy to find - when you know how! we arrived at the hotel exhausted after a long drive from Dunkerique - big thanks to reception staff who were both very friendly and very helpful in finding us a parking space - made such a huge difference to how we thought about our stay A lovely resort and hotel, would definitely recommend and would go again is we are able.
We just got back from a 3 night stay at the Carlton Beach and loved it. The location of the hotel is perfect, especially since we travelled with our dog and it is close to where dogs are permitted on the beach. We reserved parking ahead of time and are so happy we did. It was super busy this long weekend and we were happy to park and leave the car. The staff were very friendly, professional and helpful. Our room and the hotel in general were very clean. The beds were super comfortable, even the pop up bed for our son was comfortable. The bathroom was clean and spacious and looked like it had been recently updated. Breakfast was fantastic - they had everything you could want, and the chefs cooking the omelettes were super sweet. All in all we loved our stay, felt it was good value for money and would definitely recommend this hotel. Minor attention points : We stayed in room 130, and the wall behind the curtain seemed to have serious water damage and mold. The room balcony could use a bit of an update, it was kind of gross. The waffle machine at breakfast was a bit of a disaster.
Very good location, a step from the beach. Very friendly personnel, good breakfast with almost everything. Nice rooms with great view. At this hotel the gym is with no charge to their guests. Unfortunately we didn't have the time to visit the indoor pool.
