When staying we used the pool, Jacuzzi, steam room & sauna. Whilst all functional everything was just looking a bit tired and in need of replacement ie. plastic around... More

On this occasion we were using an Itison voucher and on arrival we were pleasantly surprised to have been upgraded to a suite (The Carnoustie Suite) The room was huge with 2 toilets, a sitting room with kitchen area, and a...

We spent one night at the Carnoustie Hotel and I was looking forward to spending the weekend at this iconic hotel, but unfortunately I missed the WoW factor. The hotel is dated and in need if some TLC (this may be pending due to the next Open a Golf Championships being held here in 2018). However the service we received... More

My husband and grand-daughter spent an overnight at the Carnoustie Hotel. The room we were allocated was lovely. We had a sea view which was excellent. We ate in the bar area and the meal was lovely. The staff were very friendly especially the gentleman at the reception desk who made us feel very welcome. Matthew who served us in... More

Stayed at the hotel for a one night late deal. We did have a very relaxing time but a couple of things could have been better. When walking to our room, the ice machine in the corridor was giving off a nasty smell, wasn't very welcoming. The room was clean but a bit tired. The bar area was ok but... More

We went to Carnoustie to play the Golf course, and this hotel is perfectly located in this respect. The first impression we got from the hotel when arriving on the car park was unfortunately quickly confirmed : the hotel is extremely tired. Urgent need of renovation. The staff is pleasant and helpful, but alone can not raise the standard. Our... More

This was my 4th visit. Enjoyed our stay. All food good except for Sunday lunch main course. Beef was as tough as old boots! When I complained to the staff they were fab. However I was put off and didn't want replacement. I thought the hotel was looking a bit 'tired'. Lovely location and staff very helpful.
