I went to the Carolina Hotel as a vendor for a conference, and I must say, I was impressed. The service was top notch. I didn't get to play golf or go to the spa, but I will definitely be back for that. Front desk didn't have my reservation but took care of everything in a timely manner. Bellman was...

This is a very impressive hotel with immense history. It is rich with charm and elegance that is worth experiencing. We have taken many a friend and family member here for lunch so they can view with awe all of the photos lining the halls. However, as an overnight accommodation, the shine begins to wear a little. We've experienced just...

The entrance way and grounds design and maintenance are exceptional. Staffing is attentive, friendly and at your service. Professionally managed to high standards. The resort is well maintained and constantly kept up to date. Breakfast is a highlight. If you come here you already know about the superb golf club and courses. The spa is good, but not top rate;...

I had the opportunity to stay at the resort during a conference. The service, especially in dining and at the spa, was excellent. The food was perfectly prepared and nicely varied. The grounds are lovely, and I regret that I didn't have time to play golf.

One night stay over New Years Eve with another couple. They have a super package including the room, afternoon tea & snacks in the main lobby, 5 course gourmet supper, evening dance, champagne at midnight with midnight breakfast. Topped off by their outstanding brunch. From the time you get there until you leave the staff makes you feel like family...

Work brought me here, but the staff and surroundings made it feel more like vacation. From Lucy at the front desk to Catherine and Carolyn in the two restaurants, this was a top-notch home away from home experience. Everyone who works here seems genuinely interested in making your stay as comfortable as possible and accommodating your every request. There is...

With all the elegance of a less hectic era, the Pinehurst Resort is a delightful getaway. The hotel itself is well appointed, with spacious public areas and beautiful grounds. The service is attentive and thoughtful - you pull up at the circular drive and from that moment feel pampered. The quaint Village of Pinehurst is a leisurely stroll away. The...

NB: older people will rate this place more highly than it deserves, because they, and the place are, well - old. Could be the backdrop for "Dirty Dancing" type movie as that's the type of theme evoked. Circular driveway, bell hops to carry your bags, afternoon tea - all too pretentious for my tastes. But I was there for a...

Dear Tom, We appreciate your comments on the graciousness of our staff and regret that we did not meet your expectations. Pinehurst is an historic destination, dating back to 1895 and the beginnings of golf in America. Some find the relaxing pace and southern gentility we provide to be just the elixir they seek to escape the hurries of the...

The Carolina - Pinehurst Resort is a very special hotel. It is full of rich history and niceties. Although for all of that, the beds are uncomfortable. This is my 13th(ish) visit to the hotel as I go every year for a business meeting. While I love the valet services and the housekeeping services are great, each year the bed...
