The best thing about the hotel though was the staff, from entering the hotel you are made very... More

Just back from a weekend stay at the Russell Hotel. Room was clean, a bit on the small side but had everything you needed. We dined in the restaurant and have to say the food was exquisite. Pork belly, steak, venison and black pudding, all delicious. Breakfast was lovely with a good choice on the menu. This is our second... More

It's a proper Scottish bar food experience which is a real pleasure. Staff are very friendly, helpful and efficient.

The team looked after us really well. We had some great food for Hogmanay and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.We had Room 5 which looked out on the links and Ocean: my parents were in room 8, which was also fine without the view. Really friendly atmosphere.

We made a visit to St Andrews beach on New Year's day with a group of friends. Always a pleasure visiting and especially after an evening of celebrating Hogmanay with friends. We then decided to go for a light lunch in St Andrews, to our surprise there was a very limited choice open. To our luck, the Russell Hotel was... More

Stayed with friends using a voucher. Overall hotel was very good, food was excellent and bar lounge lovely and warm. Staff were extremely friendly. Only down was the size of the allocated room which was tiny. Difficult to open and close the bathroom door from the inside due to the tight location of the door handle.

The room was very comfortable, although we did not get all the channels on the TV, It did not affects us much as we were out most of the day. The food was excellent, especially the evening meal and the staff were very friendly and attentive.
