The staff at the Russell is excellent. Fiona did a wonderful job communicating during the booking, Gordon was accommodating at check in and getting us set up for an early breakfast and Julie and the others helped anytime they were asked. The rooms are a little small but you don't go to St Andrews to sit in your room. The... More

Great location, clean cozy rooms, wonderful staff who helped with everything, amazing food --- this is the place to stay if you're on your dream trip to St Andrews. We booked six months in advance and Fiona coached us through securing tee times as well as arranging airport transport. All we had to do was show up. The pub is... More

Booked for an overnight stay at the Russell Hotel. Parking free at the front of the hotel but can be busy, as expected. The staff were wonderful, so friendly and helpful. Whole hotel was spotless, our room was basic but cosy and perfect for what we needed. The food completely blew us away. Delicious! Huge menu to choose from, professionally... More

It was my parents 45th wedding Anniversary on Sat 7th March, and I was planning on taking them out for a celebratory meal. The place we usually go to, is ok, but nothing special. So I looked on Tripadvisor for some local restaurants to make it a bit more special. The Russell Hotel in St. Andrews had some good reviews... More

By far this is value for money, fantastic service, food was 5 star, service was 5 star. A very friendly well run hotel. The prince was the only shocking thing about it. I got a dinner/Bed and Breakfast deal for £89. What a fantastic deal??? Value for money ten times over. Location was ideal, close to beach, next to town... More

Just back from a night away at the Russell Hotel with an Itison voucher, don't think we'll need another one to go back! Check-in was hassle free and professional. Our room was very clean, furniture was a wee bit dated, but not a big deal. Bathroom has been refurbished and lovely! Evening meal and breakfast were absolutely superb! Staff were... More

We stayed for 2 nights in mid- January. The hotel had only 're-opened on the day we arrived. We had room 5 which was clean,spacious and with a lovely sea view. On arrival the room and hotel was a little chilly as the heating had been off during the closure. However it soon warmed up and we were very comfy,... More
