The Lowdown

You can’t beat the rugged beauty of Scotland; a landscape filled with moody mountains, gorgeous glens and sweeping sandy beaches. Carnoustie sits on Scotland’s eastern coast, within easy distance of the area’s popular attractions, including the childhood home of the Queen Mother, Glamis Castle, and Captain Scott’s Discovery Ship. The whisky trail is also nearby, if you fancy sampling a local dram or two.
Carnoustie Golf Hotel offers all you’ll need for a relaxing seaside stay. It sits right on the edge of the Carnoustie Golf Links Championship Course, drawing golfers from the world over. As well as a challenging but satisfying round of golf, guests here can enjoy the tempting leisure facilities, which include an indoor pool, Jacuzzi and sauna, before tucking into locally-sourced produce in the hotel’s bistro restaurant.

Just had to return for another relaxing getaway
Reviewed 2 days ago

Excellent from start to finish. This is our 2nd visit here as we enjoyed our stay last year.
Stayed for 2 nights dinner, bed, breakfast. Upgraded our room and so glad we did.
Arrived 5-10 mins early so our room wasn't ready for our stay and were treated to complimentary tea/coffee - nice touch as they didn't have to do this
We used the spa on our first day and it was lovely, very clean and a good lay out. One of the hottest steam rooms, sauna and hot tub I've ever been in - I'm not complaining, I love heat. Not too busy as I assume everyone else was golfing!
Rooms very clean and to an excellent standard. Mattress was a bit too soft for my liking and I seemed to sink into it. I prefer a firm mattress.
Meals superb with a extensive menu available for breakfast.
All staff very friendly and welcoming - would recommend to anyone, even those who do not like golf.

Great welcome

Loved this hotel great food and facilities, staff excellent, not a lot to do in Carnoustie but great to go to places near by if you have a car but great bus service to Dundee, it is really for Golfing but Lunan Bay is worth a visit, it was near Montrose, as is the beach at Monifieth

spa day out
Reviewed 4 days ago

Had a very wonderful experience in the spa rooms yesterday. The staff were so friendly and helpful, the receptionist showed us through to the spa area through the hotel.... . The changing room was spacious and very clean and everything you need from towels, slippers, housecoats, hairdryer were there for you to use........and provided by from the hotel... The pool consisted of a very cosy jaccquizzi, steam and sauna and a large pool area.......Loungers were decorated around the pool and you were able to look out on the golf course.......It was a bright, clean area with life guard equipment and drinking water supplies.

We were shown into the relaxing room fiftteen minutes beforehand where it was so tranquil you could have fallen asleep.......lol

I had Elina who explained all what she was about to do and put me at ease as I had never experienced the treatment of using stones before......it was so relaxing and
I am going to do this again real soon.......I can say I have been stoned!!!!!!!

We then went on into the dining area again where the staff were very friendly and chatty and what a lovely scottish themed area with tartan comfy chairs, bar with an arrange of drinks and spotlessly clean...... The view onto the golf course from the window seating area was breathtaking......a lovely view......We were laughing as two small children were coming through the dining area on their little scooters and the staff were not upset at all about it... so that was great to see ....as so thoughtful and friendy towards the young couple with three boys....obviously if it had been busier this might not have incurred but we thought it was such a nice gesture from the staff to be so relaxed about it,,,,well done to you all for being friendly and laughing with some of the diners besides our selves. it was a great to see....

We ordered prossecco and soft drinks as someone had to drive....lol......The meal came with the package of the spa day treatment. Wow it came in a rectangular box with little cordoned off squares with the food....I had the casesar salad and my daughter and her mother in law had the Thai curry....We all agreed the food was very good, well presented and tasty. Even your desert and fruit were in the tray......We were just saying would love that idea for a dinner party ..........

The staff member who served our table even took our picture to remember us of our day out as this was to finish off our holiday week.back from a girlie Benidorm week....
She was friendly and humourous as when we first came into the dining room after the spa treatment she said where have you been I have been waiting for you guys.......Lol ...right away we were put at ease....I cannot remember her name but I think was Chinese...really must look at all name badges in future... so I can describe what a lovely girl she was.....in her manner and personality.......

We used the washroom facilities before we left ....they were very clean, and spacious..... in all the areas where we went were very clean and bright .

A thoroughly grand day out and will be doing again soon......
Five star rating from us to this hotel and the spa room....

You don't have to be golfer to enjoy this hotel........

This is a very nice hotel with nice rooms & good facilities. We had golf view room, overlooking first tee, & would recommend this type room. Great view & sun in afternoon. Room is well set out & bed very comfortable. Good leisure facilities in hotel too. Evening meal was very nice with good quality ingredients served attractively. First morning breakfast was very good (ordered full breakfast) however 2nd morning was not disappointing. Hot food is madd to order but my bacon & scrambled egg arrived less than 2 mins after ordering- I hadn’t even been to continental selection for cereal!! Table next to us also received hot breakfast just as they’d started cereal. This needs addressed.

Beautiful hotel

Thoroughly enjoyed our 1 night stay with our granddaughter. Pool was nice and quiet. Great open spaces both inside And out. Lots of seating areas to enjoy a drink or some food. Some good deals for the golfers.
