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...

Just want to say what a fun weekend my girlfriends and I had at the Pinehurst Resort. The spa is beautiful and they always have some incredible rates this time of year that include your room, a spa treatment and a beautiful breakfast the next morning. Even a one night getaway in Pinehurst is worth the trip for folks who...

Made a one night reservation recently within the cancellation period to stay one night and play #2 while travelling thru the area. Unfortunately rain prevented playing golf. Staff was very gracious in letting me cancel golf and upgraded my room to a suite. My only complaint was that I thought the breakfast buffet in the Carolina room was included. Maybe...

The Carolina Hotel is first class in every way. To truly appreciate it, you should do a little research on the history. The entire staff epitomizes southern charm. The golf is incredibly amazing. I've been three times now, and this one topped them all. This recent trip was a retirement gift from my wife. All I will say is they...

The hotel is gorgeous. The hotel room walls were very thin so you can hear EVERYTHING. The breakfast buffet was good. I recommend the grits. The spa has these fruit smoothies...YUMMY. The spa service and amenities were impeccable. However, I do wish the spa would offer fresh fruits instead of banana chips and raisins. Also, my hotel room have zero...

Spacious room, tremendous breakfast buffet, and very classy environment. Even though some of the clientele wore hats indoors in the restaurants and were under dressed, the experience is all Southern charm. The Spa fitness room was great and the restaurant choices were good. It seemed like the restaurant staff at dinner was not overly happy but it is a great...

We spent two nights at Pinehurst including New Year's Eve. The service from all employees we encountered was excellent. The rooms are a nice size but somewhat dated. My husband took a golf lesson which he really enjoyed. The food was good although limited for a person with celiac disease. A great place to visit.

We joined another couple to celebrate New Year's at Pinehurst. Check-in was at 4 PM but we decided to arrive at 2. Already there was a crowd of guests trying to check in. The process was flawless, and the receptionist acknowledged our dinner reservations at the 1895 Grill at the Holly Inn (we were too late to reserve dining at...
