Came here for our lunch and was pleased with the staff, very helpful and polite. Had to wait a while for our order to arrive after we had ordered. The food was good, only thing I would say would be the portions were quite small. I had a burger with chips, the burger itself was a good size but felt... More

Asked for a room away from the bar, was given a room directly over the bar. Noise till after one am. The remote control was bigger than the TV, the Toilet flush handle was wonky and we had booked for 2 nights but could only stop one it was that bad. Awful place.

Stayed here while working in the area, I liked the bar, dining area as the weather was great when I was there, early July, and got to abuse the sun terrace out the back while enjoying some after work refreshments! ;-) The room I had was number 4, pretty spacious twin room but had loads of potential. Needs upgraded and... More

Excellent service and food good. Visited a number of years ago and has improved loads. Had a meal with my fussy little girl but nothing was a bother. Staff friendly and helpful. Interior modern and welcoming. Would visit again and recommend.

I went to The Kinloch Arms recently for lunch and i will NEVER return, the chef looked unhygenic and unprofessional, speaking to the other staff in a very poor manner. I ordered a chicken burger, after waiting 45 minutes, the food finally arrived, the burger and bun was swimming in grease, the chicken was RAW and PINK inside. I took... More

Stayed in this hotel for just under a week and it was terrible. The Windows in my room didn't lock, plug sockets didn't work, wooden bed slates were broken and the tv in the room barely worked as well. The noise at night coming from the bar down stairs was ridiculous, it vibrated though the floor boards and kept us... More

Very simple check-in cloose to the bar. The room was not ready but they give us a beer. Not so good standard in the room and not so clean so we not feel so good. We change this feeling in the morning together with the ladys who make our breakfast just in time and what we want. Very kindly and... More

Went to the Kinloch yesterday with my family for a meal, This was a last minute decision so hadnt booked - it's a local pub though so we'd had no idea we had to pre book a Sunday high tea. After a discussion with staff they decided we could have a meal- we expected the restaurant to be packed out... More

As on my previous visit to Carnoustie I ate twice at the Kinloch Arms. The restaurant there provides an excellent menu at reasonable prices, I recommend the burgers in particular which were full of flavor. The staff were polite and attentive, nothing was too much trouble for them.

Expected to eat in the bar next to people vapouring. The service from the young waitresses was poor, just inexperienced. The food was not cheap but the quality of the food was awfully, tasteless, served cold and the piece of chicken was gritty. The kids chicken pieces had more batter on it than actual chicken. Even the coffee was served... More
