    "Check in time is advertised as 2pm, I called the hotel at 1.30 pm to confirm the check in time was 2pm. I arrived at the hotel at 2.10pm where I was told by a rather sullen receptionist that my room was not ready because the hotel had been fully booked the night before. I was asked to wait in the lounge for 10 minutes while the room was prepared. I left the reception area at 2.15pm. After waiting in the lounge until 2.45pm I returned to the reception area to enquire why my room was still not ready. No explanation was given. At this point I was advised that housekeeping staff were in the room preparing it. I was then offered a rather feeble apology for the delay and told I could have the room key and wait a further 10 minutes to allow housekeeping staff to prepare the room. When i did get into the room it was an average room, clean and tidy. The restuarant facility served good food in a pleasant environment and most of the staff were pleasent. Unfortunately the stay was affected by the delay in check in and the rather rude reception staff. First impressions count and unfortunately the Carlton did not leave a good impression on me. "
    The worst thing about Carlton Hotel was: "Reception staff "
