The hotel is beautifully sited, overlooking the magnificent beach at St. Andrews and within easy walking distance of the university. Our room was large, comfortable and reasonably well appointed. It's not the Ritz, but it's comfortable. Front desk staff were welcoming and pleasant, and the dining room staff were happy to meet our requests for food and drink. As a... More

Stayed mid April as part of the winter golf package on a D, B & B basis. Very friendly and helpful staff and they couldn't do enough for you. Dinners and breakfasts were very good. Twin room overlooking the beach was fine.

This is a lovely hotel. The room was large and comfortable and the staff very friendly. The view of the north sea is stunning. Loved all the golf memorabilia and the old wood interior. The bathroom was well maintained but old fixtures and no shower but a bathtub.

Travelled up for the university open day with my daughter. This is a perfect location with free parking right outside. Friendly service, excellent food both breakfast and evening meal with a 'to die for' view down the West Sands.p from the dining room. Managed a run in the morning along the beach and across the golf course. Happy to recommend.

This is a bog-standard hotel with delusions of grandeur. It's shabby, over-priced and, if you're not a golfer, doesn't look after you well. The internet connection is appalling - forget FaceTime or Skype - it'll be impossible. The one good thing is the view - but what does it really say about a hotel when the only good thing is... More

Our Family Had A Lovely Meal In The Champions Grill Restaurant. I Have A Number Of Allergies Which Was Accomodated For & The Chef Adapted My Choices With Ease. The Waitress Was Very Friendly & Nothing Seemed To Much Trouble. An Enjoyable Evening Out & Will Be Returning In The Not To Distant Future.
