I attended a small family reunion in Pinehurst and we made dinner reservations here. I am so happy we did. The waitstaff was attentive, the decor was predictable but well kept and comfortable, and the food was outstanding. Consider making a reservation when you in town.

Father/Son trip to Play #2 while visiting family for Easter--could not have been a better weekend weather wise. The Hotel is creaky with history, huge room, not sure how one would watch flat screen from bed. Comfy bed, nicely appointed bath, and very friendly staff.

We stayed here for a quick Valentines weekend and really enjoyed afternoon and/or cocktails on the porch and LOVED the spa. I would have to say the drinks were on the pricy side, but the tea and snacks were free so we didn't really care. It's in a great location to walk to the Village for coffee dinner etc.

We come here every year for a few days for a conference. The rooms are spacious and the staff is amazing. From the moment you get out of your car - someone opens the door and carries your luggage inside. The front desk staff is very friendly and they always smile. The housekeeping staff is very nice and leaves the...

This is a hotel that should be awesome. Great location, historical building, beautiful entry. The receptionist at check in talked so low that I had to ask her to speak up 3 times. When I got to my room, I looked out the window to see nothing but huge air handling equipment and loud noise. I moved to the east...

I have gone to the Golf Academy many times, and can't imagine a better golf experience. Eric and his entire staff are not only amazingly patient and superb teachers, but personable, and incredibly dedicated to improving your golf swing. All 9 courses at Pinehurst are first-rate, and loaded with golf history, and of course, especially #2. While there are other...
