A much improved hotel - paid a small supplement for a lovely sea view room with all amenities. Booked the room only option as we dont usually have breakfast. Staff friendly and helpful. Only criticism would be the lifts and foyers are very hot. Would definitely go back. Cheaper rooms overlook the carpark so if you're not bothered about a... More

Returned to the Carnoustie Golf Course Hotel for a two night stay on 21st & 22nd August 2015 having last stayed there in 1999. The hotel looks tired now and in desperate need of refurbishment. Whilst the rooms were tidy I would say that most of the décor remains unchanged since 1999. Most of the time whilst there the bar... More

Booked this last minute as they had a deal on for Friday over to Saturday. For £99 we had Bed and Breakfast and £27.50 towards the a la carte menu each. The meal was really good and our bill was the price of our wine so all in all a good deal. The hotel itself is a little tired but... More

Thanks for your review. We appreciate everyone enjoys a long lie but inevitably this can create a 'pinch point' when everyone does the same. Thanks for your comments, much appreciated. More

I was surprised by my boyfriend yesterday with a Spa Day at the hotel! Having previously been a Sales Manager at 4* Hotel for 2 years I annoying always have high expectations as soon as I enter any hotel. First impressions were good, the receptionist was very friendly in directing us to the Spa. I had a Lime & Ginger... More

Stayed here for 2 nights 21/22 August with my fiancée and our families. Really nice stay, really nice rooms with fantastic views of the golf course. Breakfast was very nice, freshly cooked and great menu. Had spa treatments also in the Elemis spa. Very nice 👍

Just back from a few days spent at this hotel. Everything was perfect, the room, the breakfast, lovely friendly staff and superb facilities. Myself and friend are not golfers, but there are lovely walks, quiet clean beach, pleasant wee town as well as the hotel spa and leisure facilities to enjoy. We will return.

We enjoyed another stay at what is fast becoming one of my favorite hotels. I find the staff to be particularly friendly and helpful. The room as usual was very clean and tidy pehaps with the exception of the small table which is damaged by the sun. We tried out room service and were very pleased with the quality of... More

We had our wedding at the hotel. All of our guests enjoyed their stay, the staff could not have been more helpful and it made our day and stay very pleasant. The hotel decor is starting to look a little dated, but it's not too bad.

As a party of 6 (3 couples), we had a very nice Sat night stay. Unfortunately the bar lunch we had was not good, but the hotel were great and took the lunch off the bill.

Very clean, great staff. décor slightly dated, great views and location for a countryside break. Food in restaurant was horrendously overpriced, but the Calder Bar sufficed for light bites and snacks. Ate mainly outside the hotel, plenty of restaurants in surrounding areas. Beds were very soft, but I found them fine. maybe could cause bother if used to sleeping on... More
