I booked this hotel for myself and my husband as an anniversary surprise and was expecting great things based on the glowing TripAdvisor reviews and the price tag attached to it. When we arrived I thought I must have been in the wrong hotel! The frontage looked like it hadn't been updated in 30 years, and the foyer was equally... More

We loved this hotel. The staff were so friendly and the room was fantastic! Nothing here I can even think that needs improving on. The parking can be a little tight, but other than that, it is an outstanding hotel.

We stayed in room 206 this was a small double no good for anyone tall. We had a view over the water which was nice. The bathroom was bland and dated along with the facility's down stair in the hotel. We were originally charged over £200 for bed and breakfast . As we were with the wedding party we got... More

Right on top of the first tee at the Old Course. A short walk to anywhere. Stayed there a week. Excellent service- incredibly responsive & fast. Be sure to try the lamb shank in the restaurant.(so tender it falls off the bone).

This hotel is all about location. Located only steps from the Old Course, a few blocks from Town Centre and a few blocks from the Castle & Cathedral. Ideal for golfers & non-golfers.

I have stayed here twice now and I'll stay here again and again. The staff is incredibly friendly, food is good and the scenery is truly incredible. The hotel itself is beautiful and I love how they have maintained the architecture. Easy walking distance to all the great restaurants and shops. There are newer hotels in and outside of St.... More
