We booked a spa day as this is such a central location and it was amazing! The staff were all fantastic. We were made to feel relaxed and important from the moment we arrived. The facilities were second to none and as for the 80 minute treatment, you could almost fall asleep! Its perfect for a girly catch up over... More

I had high expectations for this Hotel after coming from an exceptional stay at Gleneagles. They were met and exceeded. The front desk staff was exceptionally accommodating in providing early checkin. I was also upgraded from a fairway suite to a deluxe suite. I regularly stay in Hotel suites and I must say that the deluxe suite at The old... More

My husband booked me a soul to sole session in the spa as a birthday treat, followed by afternoon tea. This was my 50th birthday, and having spent my 40th in Tahiti and having a miserable time, I think he was reluctant to book anything. However this venue was perfect. The Kohler Spa was excellent and the restaurant staff just... More

Beautifully kept hotel with every amenity you'd like. Staff is courteous, friendly and helpful. Rooms and baths have been remodeled using great appointments. Bath has Kohler fixtures and marble...(nice touch). Opt for a room overlooking the 17th fairway...the views are phenomenal. We were there on a golf trip so this was the place to be. (My only complaint would be... More

We stayed at the OCH based upon it's reputation as the premier hotel in St. Andrews. Having been to Kohler in Wisconsin a few times we expected the same degree of service at the OCH that we have always found in WI. We booked through a tour company, and originally booked an Eden view room. We advised our agent we... More

The afternoon tea was served in the conservatory which was beautiful, with stunning views over the course. The service was unbeatable nothing was too much trouble, you were made to feel really taken care of. The food was delicious and we... More

We have been paying a visit to the OCH for several years in July. The hotel never ceases to amaze! From the excellent service, the beautiful first class rooms with stunning views, and the superb food, the OCH offers the lot. We stayed for 4 nights and had a beautiful room overlooking the 17th. Unusually the weather was fantastic which... More

Spent the time in the spa and on the rooftop where there is a Hot Tub, lunch in the spa which was delicious and then to our room. Large,... More

There is something very special about staying at the Old Course Hotel and watching the holders move by on the Old Course, the New Course and the Jubilee Course. The hotel is quite luxurious, staff is most attentive, and the setting is spectacular. A once in a lifetime trip, but worth the wait.
