By the time we arrived it had changed to a Quality hotel, not a Vibe hotel. The pool hadn't been cleaned in 2 months so it was closed. The pool was the main reason we chose this hotel for our holiday. Kids were really disappointed. Daily room cleaning left a lot to be desired, glasses and teaspoons weren't cleaned. Only one of 2 beds made. Front desk staff were super friendly and helpful. Given they had just reopened after a closure while the property was re branded, there was a lot of wear and tear that i would have tidied up if it were my business. There was mouldy silicone, mis matched lamps, mis matched spoons, mismatched wine glasses, quilt (with no cover) had stains. The breakfast was ok but not amazing considering the $16 price tag.

Absolutely loved our stay, staff extremely helpful . Lady from New Zealand that was on the front desk, cannot speak highly enough of how much she made our stay enjoyable, would recommend her very highly. Unfortunately I don't look at emails very often so this is 6 months late and I have lost her name.

Staff weren’t at reception when I arrived and as it was within hours there was a phone to call the receptionist. When I called, his phone rang on the desk! So my 2 yr old and I had to wait 30 minutes for him to return so I could get our room key. When we finally got to the room there was no hot water! Receptionist did come and fix this issue but it was more lukewarm than hot. When I closed the curtains I pricked my fingers on all of the lose staples in it! The bed was cold and not much as far as blankets.

The team really hope you enjoyed your time in Carlton and think of the hotel next time you are planning a trip, unfortunately due to fire regulations we are unable to have microwaves in the rooms however the team have access to one at reception. Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel.
