“A GREAT EXPERIENCE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2013

Myself and my partner stayed at the Carnoustie Golf Course Hotel for our anniversary and it was amazing. All the staff were extremely helpful throughout our stay.
Our room was very spacious with a great view of the course and the sea. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room and the bathroom were clean and tidy.
When we arrived we quickly unpacked and the went for a late tea. The food was amazing. It was the same with breakfast the next morning. Big portions and plenty of refills of tea.
My Partner went out and played a round of golf while I went and had a relaxing massage in the spa. Great place to have a nice romantic getaway.

I used to be a member at the hotel gym and pool but cancelled as I didn't have much time, I went to use the pool today with a friend and was shocked to see the state of the changing rooms and pool area. Parts of the ceiling in both areas looked as if they may come down. Also many areas looked damp and mouldy including the shower curtains. They really need to make some changes and repairs to this area, if I was thinking about becoming a member again the visit today changed my mind completely.

Thank you for your comments.
Following a breakdown in the air handling unit for our Leisure Club there has been a period increased condensation in the pool area and changing areas which has impacted on the fabric of some areas.
I am pleased to say that the air handling unit has been replaced, with follow up work including among others, the replacement of ceiling tiles and deep cleaning carried out.

We admittedly got a very good weekend deal at the hotel, but I can't help feeling this hotel is need of a refurbishment. Pool and spa area is is need of some investment and jacuzzi was pretty cold. The food we had was good (ate in bar) but service was very slow even with only five or six tables. The hotel has a great location by the championship course and is also by the beach.

Came here last year for break between christmas and new year and had a great time. Decided to come back with friends again this year - not so great. Friends had to have a room move as their original room had an awful smell in it. Rooms were clean and breakfast for the best part was good, although service was a bit variable. We didn't eat in the hotel restaurant in the evening as felt was bit pricey. Did eat at the local indian (Gange) which was good and tried the Corner hotel which was also very good and would highly recommend them.

When we were there they were also having issues with temperature control in the jacuzzi and pool - was quite cold at times which did take away a bit of the pleasure of the break. However we did still enjoy our break away after the chaos of christmas especially given the really good price paid for the stay, - would have grudge paying much more .

The golf hotel is really looking bit tired and dated now. Water marks on bathroom furniture, cracked bathroom tiles, plastic type curtains in bedrooms, some marks on carpet and furniture . Badly in need of a refurbishment.

Got a good deal on a weekend break, well worth what we payed.We were in room 111 nice room overlooking the course room was perfect apart from one small detail the net curtians, rather tired looking i would do away with them and put in vertical blinds.We hed a meal in the hotel bar on the Friday night on recomendation from a friend ,unfortunately the meal we had was not up to scratch 2 of us had the chicken curry unfortunately it tasted like a bland chicken stew 0 out of 10 the other 2 meals were about 5 out of 10,although the breakfasts on both days were very good 8 out of 10 .I would recomend this hotel on a weekend break deal great value for money.The spa was great, spent a couple of hours on Saturday relaxing in it ,felt great for Saturday night

We have just returned from the 3 night New Year break which was really great. Our twin room was spacious, warm and very clean. We were also in a quiet area of the hotel which was a real bonus as I am not a great sleeper, however the beds were really comfortable and I had no problems at all in getting to sleep. The staff were all really nice and friendly and went about their duties with a smile. I have to praise the kitchen staff - all the meals were of a very high standard, beautifully cooked and really tasty. The 6 course Gala Dinner was superb, followed by stovies at midnight. Top class food and great entertainment. We also made use of the gym, pool, sauna and steam room which are all really good. I would definately go again.
