From the moment we arrived until our departure, the staff was attentive and cordial. Awesome customer service! The breakfast in the dining room included cuisine for the health conscious as well as those if us who wanted the infamous farmers fare. Lovely piano music complemented the meal.

Nice room overlooking pool. Comfortable beds and nice, large bathroom. Very clean, new carpet. Afternoon tea and the buffet breakfast are both very well done and appreciated by everyone in my family. The shuttle service is easy to use and always available without a wait. The in room TV needs an upgrade.

Beautiful green and lush surroundings, generous sized and elegantly appointed meeting facility. One bed - bedroom is smallish, but has a generous closet and fine bathroom. Two bed -bedroom is large with a 2 armchair sitting area, large windows to the front port- a -cochere. It's a mystery to me why there is no coffeemaker in the room. Or why...

Our 3rd trip in 4 years to Pinehurst, was spur of the moment when our original plans were suddenly changed. We had a very nice room overlooking the front entrance. As always, the staff was extremely accommodating, food was excellent, and the atmosphere was grand. Highly recommend, can't wait to go back.

Sometime every golfer has to come here for a golf package and stay and play. The golf is world class and the charm of the hotel and village are wonderful! I loved the restaurant in the Holy Inn and the breakfast in The Carolina is world class!

Thanks for the fantastic review. We hope you'll come back to play Pinehurst No. 4 after it's restored by Gil Hanse. We think it's going to be a more authentic, visually interesting golf course. We're also building a short course, which is sure to be fun! We look forward to seeing you again in the future.

Everything was well done! Rooms were nice and clean, food was great, everyone was pleasant! High ceilings, and quaint little shops. We felt catered to the whole time. We would have liked to get out in the village, but we had a snow storm, however that just added to the ambiance.

The resort was beautiful, staff friendly and helpful, rooms clean and well maintained...great girls getaway. We used the fitness facilities and they were good, the spa is bit pricey but they were great as well. We did not play golf so I can not write about that experience. The hotel is just a few blocks from downtown Pinehurst so we...

They stuck me in a villa while my colleagues were in the main building. The receptionist was not able to assist even though I checked in at the recommended time. You should get a fridge at these high prices
