I absolutely loved staying at The Carrington Hotel, it has so much history and has been kept in its original style. It felt like a home away from home. Great bathroom facilities.

The customer service was fantastic, our only frustration was the heat and lack of air conditioning

Beautiful hotel, lots of old world charm and period décor. I stayed during the two hottest days ever...37 degrees. There was no air conditioning but I asked for a fan which was provided and waiting when I checked in. I had the Grand Dining Room dinner that was varied...pleasant entre, yummy mains and disappointing desert. The steak, chips and salad I had the next night at The City Bank Eatery was equally satisfying. Staff were lovely.
