Visited to celebrate our anniversary. Welcome and service was first class from car valet to restaurant staff. Plenty staff on hand throughout the hotel to make us feel very well attended. Package price included dinner and breakfast. Choice and quality of food was top. Didn't have time to visit the Spa, but we will be back!

We booked a dinner, b&b package that seemed very good value. Our room was immaculate and I love the Art Deco decor. Breakfast was delicious and very we'll presented- we... More

I took my girlfriend here in valentines day and we were not disappointed the room was immaculate and the bathroom was the best I have ever seen. Breakfast is served overlooking the golf course and is plentiful! Be sure to visit the spa on your stay !

We did not play the old course but did really enjoy our stay. The breakfast on 4th floor was great with amazing view of the course. Sands grill was nice but on the first floor worth no view and the only dinner spot in the hotel. A short walk to town was perfect location. The spa was incredible. Did all... More

On Saturday I stayed at the old course hotel with my family for my partners birthday and my sister in laws birthday. We booked the dinner, bed and breakfast deal which seemed very good value for money. Before we arrived (A week earlier) I sent an email to reservations to book a table for the Saturday night in the resturant.... More

St Andrews is a special place particular to golfers like us. There is not better place to stay especially if you get a 17th green facing room. The service has no equal. However, do not expect a gourmet experience even though it's a superior hotel.

Spent 2 nights with our 2 kids (7 and 2), booked a suite which was large enough to have the bed setee out and a cot, clean etc as you would expect. The room needed a few extra touches to make it a fantastic hotel but the location really gives it that extra star. our room was directly under the... More

The service and ambience of this hotel is outstanding. From Bell Hop to front desk to concierge....everyone went out of their way to help. Great Gym with very good instructors...unusual for a hotel. The breakfast buffet is bountiful and I feel like we had 5 or 6 people waiting on us each morning. Our suite had a great view of... More
