Great situation but in need of cosmetic upgrade & senior staff involvement in training new staff. Also basic cleaning routine especially outdoors e.g. weeding ,ashtrays on outside tables and general cleanliness. All staff courteous and helpful. Food well presented and excellent standard.

Beautifully appointed spa with lovely staff. Facilities well maintained and varied. Lunch served overlooking the golf course. Wide selection freshly prepared . Had what was probably the best back massage ever. An enjoyable experience Thank you Fiona!

To my amazement, the Carnoustie Hotel is very, very run down and in much need of an upgrade. It's hard to imagine that The Open is going to be there in 3 years! Beds were like sleeping on a box spring. The sheets didn't even fully cover the bed! Everything from the furniture and chipped up cabinets, to the carpet,... More

Stayed with 3 sisters and mum for a midweek break. Have read some of the reviews on here and feel many are a bit harsh. The location of the hotel is excellent, right on the beach. The young (but professional) staff were lovely and seemed local too. They are a credit. The food and service were just spot on. Like... More

My partner and I had a lovely stay at this hotel. We had a room overlooking the golf course as requested. The view was spectacular. The room itself was very tired looking and in need of decorating and modernisation. The ceiling was badly stained and the furniture and window sill were in a poor condition. The leisure facilities were great.... More

The Carnoustie Hotel is really in need of a face lift. It is clean, well-staffed and certainly adequate but it is showing its age. The rooms are large enough, bathrooms are spotless and the common areas are fine. The staff members are friendly and the service is good. The main draw is the Carnoustie Golf Courses which are outstanding. I... More
