We have stayed twice at the Carriage Ridge and once at the Carriage Hills and we have really enjoyed ourselves every time. The rooms (even the studio suites) are very spacious and extremely well designed. We have stayed in a studio suite as well as a one bedroom and two bedroom suite and each of them has been fantastic. They all come with a small kitchenette and the one and two bedrooms have a full kitchen.
During our recent trip to Carriage Hills we were able to use a beautiful green space surrounded by trees behind our room to play catch with our boys. We used the large indoor/outdoor swimming pool on a daily basis which also has two hot tubs and a sauna (the outdoor hot tub was under repair at the time of our visit). We all used the Jacuzzi tub which was in our one bedroom suite.
There are trails leading into the forest where you can see the true beauty of the area as well as watch tourists using the Tree Top Trekking equipment.
There are a couple of good restaurants and a grocery store nearby. There are several golf courses within a very short distance of the hotel. The staff were welcoming and friendly and quickly responded to any concerns we had about our room. The only complaint I had was our inability to access the shared BBQs as there were huge groups using the entire space during our stay. More BBQs would be beneficial.
Overall, a great place for couples, families or people on business and terrific value for the money.
