“Excellent hotel and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

We had a great stay in this hotel, we had two suites on the top floor with balcony. Spa and pool are amazing and food delicious! Amazing views over the golf course etc. Could maybe be done up again to make it a 5* which would be brilliant. Deserves it's 4* however. Staff are very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Top floor with balcony

Rooms spacious enough, but why oh why, for a four star hotel, does management allow the following??
1.Poorly fittied double glazed windows in room 225 to allow in a constant draught of cold air. Closing the curtains helped!
2. The window sill wrecked and distorted by ingress of rain/damp and a huge brown divot of polystyrene to be visible by the ill fitted window having been dragged accross the sill?
3. A very loose w.c flush handle that feels is it just about to come off the wall! Taking the top off and tightening the fittings up is at most, a ten minute job.

If these rooms are being used by American/Japanese visitors who expect much more from a four star classification, then it is a very poor advert for Scottish hotel standards.

Thermostats in both the corridors and the room had been turned down to 3, so anyone complaining about a cold room should look at that first!! Turn the 'stat up fully if it's cold, and then complain if it has not warmed up soon. Our room was cool, but putting the heating control to 5 and closing the curtains to stop the draught from the prrorly fitted windows heated the room up quickly.

Food in restaurant was fine, piping hot dishes both nights of our stay and no complaints there, unlike other posters.

Management comments are expected on this post!!!!!

Room Tip: A room on the South Side, away from the North winds, is probably a good idea!

We stayed as a family (2adults 2children). We were offered two rooms on different floors!
Food very average. An order was taken for cooked breakfast and shrivelled precooked tomatoes etc were served.
If you are looking for good accommodation in the area avoid this one. We wish we had.

We stayed here for one night on a late rooms deal. We found check in smooth and professional. Our room was spacious and clean and even though we did not have a view of the course we still enjoyed the stay. We had breakfast and this was good and staff efficient, we will return to the hotel and will recommend to family and friends.

Room Tip: Rooms over looking the golf course will ask next time we stay.

Came here for a work night out at Christmas, paid £35 and what a disaster. The meal was cold, they did not have a large selection of drinks available at the bar and the place was cold. As the night goes on, the bar prices go up! Do they think that every1 gets drunk and doesnt notice what they are doing!!!!!!! I would never go back here, this is meant to be a fantastic hotel according to the people of Carnoustie however I would not rate it at all. You would be better going to stay at other hotels in Dundee.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

We decided to come here after getting a really good deal. My boyfriend was really pleased when we got to our room and it was overlooking the first tee on the professional course. I thought it was good that they put us in this room when we weren't paying full price. My boyfriend had paid extra for champagne, flowers and rose petals. The champagne was there but no champagne glasses and I got chocolates instead of the rose petals. That was a bit of a disappointment to be honest but we didn't complain.

The food was very good although I had to complain about the scallop starter. It was priced at £7.95 and when the three small scallops with a bit of sauce on each arrived I thought they were kidding me on. They brought us extra chips and veg with our main meal (which was really good) but I wasn't very happy with the starter.

The spa was brilliant. The girl who gave me my facial and salt scrub couldn't do enough to make me feel pampered and comfortable. The treatments are good value for money and I would recommend them. They have a chill out room for you to relax in afterwards and it is so comfortable, I fell asleep in there.

At times the service could have been better but they were always more than happy to put things right if you pointed it out.

Room Tip: I'd recommend asking for a room overlooking the golf course or with a coastal view.

Entrance pictures are badly faded and give a poor initial impression. Room furniture showed signs of minor damage - surely they could have this repaired before guests arrived- shows a lack of care. Black mould on shower tiles and toilet seat was loose - surely items the chamber maids should report as a matter of course. Room was freezing cold when we arrived - but they knew we were coming. We had asked for a quiet room - we were given a room above the entrance! Breakfast service first morning was terrible - no menu/table not properly set/no glasses for juice/staff standing about talking while tables around were littered with dirty dishes.....however second morning was MUCH better - the difference - the maitre d' was there! Overall there is a lack of attention to detail throughout the hotel - 'could do better'.

Room Tip: No point asking for a quiet room - they gave us a room above the entrance !
