We are just back from a wonderful family reunion weekend in Carnoustie. We spent more than we intended staying at the Carnoustie Golf Hotel. Room on the second floor overlooking the golf course was comfortable and clean but like the rest of the hotel in serious need of major investment. Couldn't believe it when I came across a round pinned plug in the room. Balcony windows in need of replacement. Beyond repair. Furniture in the room and bathroom badly scuffed. Furniture in the bar extremely worn and needs to be replaced. Appreciate just how mammoth any refurbishment would need to be and would probably put the hotel out of our price range but I can't help but think that the four star classification is in serious jeopardy without it.
Having said all this - we had a brilliant weekend. None of the above impacted on our visit.More
