Our stay at the Manor Inn (one of three hotels) included breakfast at the Carolina Hotel in their main dining room each morning. The shuttle or short drive was easy. The full breakfast buffet was perfect. The wait staff was very attentive, polite and sincere providing true Southern hospitality.

The best breakfast buffet anywhere. Made to order eggs and omelets and just about everything else you could desire. Dinner was also excellent. The service was a little off on one of the nights but great on the other and great during breakfast.

On our first night at Pinehurst we enjoyed dinner in the Carolina Dining Room. The food was very well prepared, beautifully presented, and great tasting. Our steaks were perfectly cooked ( mine medium well, husband' medium). The best part of the night was honestly the service and chocolate cake! Our waitress was warm, friendly, and very helpful. The chocolate cake... More

Of the many wonderful full breakfast I had around the world, breakfast at Carolina Dining Room is one of those breakfast to remember. Love the pianist playing soothing music and service is always impeccable.

I had an amazing dinner with customers made extra special by Brian Couey. He gave us great wine suggestions and was extremely welcoming. The staff was friendly and professional. The food and atmosphere was amazing. A perfect dinner and night. Again, special thanks to Brian Couey for an amazing night.

Christmas buffet is amazing! Entire hotel is decorated and not to be missed at Christmas. Lunch buffet every day is extensive. Staff is wonderful - years of experience, gracious, and attentive. Room is beautiful. Expensive, but worth it. Not to be missed for any holiday or special occasion. A must for anyone visiting area...
