The hotel is located facing the Carnoustie Golf Course, one of the best golf courses I've played in Scotland. I've played at the St. Andrews, Troon and Turnberry areas!! The check in was smooth and easy. Added upgrade facing the golf course with extra cost, but it was worth it. Stayed there for 3 nights, and we wanted to stay... More

The hotel was built in 1999 ready for the British Open 2000. Then it stood in all It's glory waiting for the worlds best! Now... The outside is weather worn, the halls tired and rooms a little less than perfect. The shower is fantastic though! The gym and pool respectable and the price to compare with the standard overall.

We stopped off here on our way up to Aberdeen. The room was of a reasonable size and the bed very comfortable. We used all the gym facilities and had a nice swim/ jacuzzi and steam room. The restaurant was fully booked in the evening so we opted for the local Chinese which was very nice, although the restaurant was... More

I was actually tring to find a hotel in Aberdeen! I ended up here when trying to stay as close to Aberdeen! But given the price of hotels in Aberdeen being a 'joke' the Carnoustie golf hotel has lovely spacious rooms, wonderful views, gorgeous food, but most importantly the Staff are so friendly. . Honest guys I know it's a... More

This is a clean and comfortable hotel with good food and attentive staff at a reasonable price. The views over the golf course and / or the sea are tranquil and pleasing to the eye.. and amenities seem to be plentyful also.

Attended a wedding and opted for overnight stay. The wedding was fab, but unfortunately can't say the same thing about the hotel. The room we were in was extremely tired and not clean. The fitments in the bathroom, particularly the wooden unit holding the handbasin...... there was months of ingrained dirt on the trim around the draws etc. The chairs... More

This hotel was obviously built for purpose to be on the fringe of one of the world's most famous golf courses, the championship course at Carnoustie. We stayed for 2 days and the service all over was very good, the view over the sea was exquisite and the facilities were world class. This is a must if you have a... More

I think it has been said many times that this hotel needs some refurbishing and I would have to agree, but i did not find it as bad as some make out. Our room had a great view over the first tee and was very comfortable albeit, a little on the hot side. Staff at reception and in the restaurant... More

I know I've reviewed this hotel before but my husband and I are just back, a birthday treat, and can only reiterate previous. Staff are so helpful in either the bar or dining room. We were only B and B but ate in the Bar and no complaints whatsoever. We will always return for small break with no hassles. Our... More

Just spent a lovely weekend at the Carnoustie hotel and spa resort. The staff were really warm and friendly and very welcoming. The food was fine- we took the dinner, bed and breakfast option and felt it was reasonably good value. The only thing letting the hotel down is a sense that the decor is a bit faded. On arrival...
