Recently stayed here for 5 days on a golf package to St. Andrews. We were blown away by the hospitality of the staff. Regardless of whether we were talking to the owner, his son, one of the wait staff or the cleaning staff, everyone was extremely friendly and you felt like you were with family. The food was fantastic! As... More

We have stayed at the Russell on several occasions and its always a pleasant experience. A small family run hotel and they are constantly improving the rooms. Breakfast is always great and the dinners are great value, especially the bar meals which offer a great way to eat in a casual setting with a great pint of beer. Alex, the... More

Oddly enough our party of 8 were on our annual golf trip You will find that golf in St Andrews is very well served with it being the home of golf, but then you knew that anyway. What you might not know is that this is a genuinely excellent independent hotel with all of the good things you would hope... More

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
