My wife and myself went for one night DB&B on an Itison deal.As soon as we walked into hotel,the young lad behind the bar came over immediately and asked how we were and how long our journey had been.Whilst we registered at reception a young lady went to see if our room was ready which it was.This was around 11am.Terrific...

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

Stayed here for one night on a Groupon type voucher. My wife had thought she was buying a voucher for the Russacks Hotel, but I doubt that the food would have been any better there. Check in was painless and very friendly. We were left to find our own way to the room which suited us just fine. We were... More

Stayed here for 1 night. First thought was, " oh, bit old fashioned" which the reception area is, haven't seen a big check in ledger like they have for years, was quite quirky. The bar area was sooooo Cosey with the coal fire on. The manager was a real gent, very helpful. First room we were given was ok but... More

We spent a very comfortable night at this hotel. The whole atmosphere was very welcoming. The room was ideal and the food was very good. We had booked a cab to take us to the theatre and when it didn't look as if it was going to appear the owner offered to take us in his own car - what... More

We stayed in room #10 on the top floor. The room has a beautiful view of the beach and the old golf course. That’s about all it has going for it. Ugly furnishings, uncomfortable bed, old carpeting, and a shower that would be perfect in a gym, not a hotel. Overpriced at 165UK/ night. But since it’s St. Andrews, the... More

Spent a pleasant over night stay in early December at Russells. Rooms 15 and 16 were clean and comfortable although some running maintenance could be carried out to make a stay a better experience. Evening meal/breakfast were well cooked and presented in very pleasant warm cosy surroundings. would certainly recommend Russells for anyone wishing a good value homely stay in... More

unfortunately we booked somewhere else to stay for our 1 night at St Andrews, but came across this pub whilst walking home and stopped in for a drink. The staff and patrons were very welcoming and the atmosphere is great. Highly recommend you drop in for a pint if you are in the area.
