The sea views are absolutely phenomenal and this hotel has a fantastic location for sure. However, that being said, the hotel also has quite a few problems. For one, we accidentally paid for a double room (2 people) when we had three in the party. We apologized for the mix up and paid the difference, but they were booked up.... More

Booked a room with a sea view which was amazing also overlooking 18th hole on The Old Course. Limited parking outside and steps up to hotel and also to reception although small lift. No porterage service on offer either. Room small and tired with a basic double bed. Toiletries in bathroom very basic and cheap thin toilet paper. Breakfast ok... More

Stayed there with a golf group for 2 nights. Breakfast was quite good, dinner so-so. The food was fairly good, but service was a bit lacking. The rooms were very different as you would expect for an old hotel, but the contrast was pretty stark. Mine was on top floor and so small that I had to duck in portions... More

This hotel is quite historic, and is literally steps from the Old Course, about 5-10 minutes walk from the Old Course Hotel, 10 minutes from St Andrews University, and 20 minutes to St Andrews Cathedral. The view is fantastic, overlooking the sea for some rooms. The rooms are roomy (by European standards), resembling North American Best Western hotels. They are... More

Wonderful rooms with great views and location. Excellent and friendly staff who are knowledgeable of local attractions. Perfect for golfing vacations or just seeing all that St Andrews has to offer. Parking not the easiest

We recently stayed at this hotel and had a very pleasant stay. The staff were all very friendly and the hotel had a very clean feel to it. We stayed in a Junior suite but I felt it lacked a bit of luxury given the money we paid. It had an amazing view but overall felt quite ordinary. The location... More

We spent one night here last Saturday 8th August. First of all finding a parking space proved difficult and we had to park a 5 minute walk away. The hotel on the outside is in a superb location, right next to the 1st/ 18th holes of the old course. We found our room to be quite spacious but on closer... More

An excellent four star plus property within steps of the R&A as well as 1st tee and 18th green of Old Course. A variety of rooms including junior suites and family rooms. Packages are available including dinner so they will take good care of their guests. The castle is just up the street and the center of town 5-10 minutes... More
