Local golf hotel named second best in Scotland

The Carnoustie hotel.

The Carnoustie Golf Hotel & Spa was as runner-up in the Best Golf Hotel category at the 2018 Prestige Hotel Awards.

Created to reward service within the Scottish hotel industry, the awards — selected from a list of the best 100 Scottish Hotels — were voted for by the public, with customer satisfaction the sole determining factor.

Carnoustie Golf Hotel sits overlooking the 18th green of the Carnoustie Links, which has hosted rounds of golf dating back as far as the 16th Century.

Gordon Mackintosh, the hotel’s general manager, said: “We are delighted to have been honoured in this category. We are tremendously fortunate to occupy a such a prime location adjacent to the championship links.”

Deputy general manager Robert McPhee added: “It’s fantastic to receive an award decided entirely by the public.

“We value their feedback most of all, so to see so many dedicated golfers recommend the hotel for the Prestige Awards is tremendously gratifying.”
