Highly Recommended
Recently stayed in this hotel with twins boys and an older brother, they had a great time in the pool and afterwards got involved in the activities that the hotel provided. The food was very nice and not ... too pricey! The staff were approachable even though it was very busy, one member of staff Estella, was very kind,and understood the boys impatience of wanting to get changed and into the pool straight away. Yes i would stay again with my family soon again. ---
I stayed at the Shearwater with two friends and the staff and service were outstanding! The food was just delicious and one could get coffee anytime. The room was quite comfortable and the beds were great. I rated this 4 stars for price because we stayed there during the Horse Fair and prices were high for that. But I'd certainly stay there anytime.

Lovely Hotel
Enjoyed the break lovely relaxing place would go again thanks to everyone in the hotel they could'nt be nicer again thanks hope to see you soon again
Lovely clean hotel
Stayed for a friend's wedding and had a very enjoyable time. Very efficient and curteous staff. My only gripe was the breakfast. While the food was fine, the orange juice was very cheap and the fruit salads left alot to be desired.

Superb Hotel
I have stayed in the Carlton Shearwater Hotel 3 times and the experience has been one of pleasure on each occasion. The Hotel reception, rooms, restaurant, bar and gym are all of an extremely high ... standard. All prior visits have been of a business nature but I will return with my wife in the very near future. The staff were always very polite and helpful assisting with any issue such as forgetting my mobile phone charger. Breakfast and evening dinners were always of a high standard. I'm looking forward to returning again. ---
