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...

I will get the first bit out of the way and agree with what most other people say in that the hotel is looking tired as you drive up to it and could do with a much needed overhaul. I wished I had seen the Hotel in its heyday when hosting the Open in 1999 and with the Open planned... More

Spent two nights on a golf trip whilst playing the three courses.. As a resort and overall experience I would recommend. the hotel is nice with good sized rooms, friendly staff and good pool and health facilities. As other reviews state, the hotel could do with a little updating but for a golf trip it is on site and provides... More

Hotel is lovely but in definite need of refurb in lots of areas. Staff was very friendly. We had nice weather but if its not so good the place will probably feel a bit dreary. Lots of little improvements could be made that would make a difference but would not necessarily cost a lot. Suspect this will happen for the... More
