My husband and I recently enjoyed a 2 night stay at the hotel. On arrival we were given a free upgrade to a suite overlooking the Old Course. What a good start. The staff were all extremely polite and friendly but not in an overboard way. Nothing was too much bother. They all appeared to enjoy their work. All hotel... More

Stayed in One of the Suites and it was magnificent . What more can I say ... But apparently I have to write at least 200 characters. Have stayed in some nice places but this (room especially) beats them all.

When we first arrived, I thought I would be giving this hotel 5 stars. It is a lovely setting, is beautifully done and St Andrews is a great town to visit. We were welcomed with a glass of sparkling wine. However, there were a few things that just let it down. For breakfast on our first morning, there were no... More

Amazing hotel off the Old Course in St. Andrews. Lush beds, fabulous bathrooms, excellent service. They make everything easy. My husband and I used this a a central hub for golfing. We golfed three rounds in three days. The golf stewards were very helpful. Views over the Old Course are great. Upstairs bar has beautiful views and breakfast is delicious.

My wife and I stayed here with other couples for golf, spa and fun. In combination with The Old Course Experience (a great company itself) we had a fantastic visit……and the weather even cooperated. The hotel has a marvelous location adjacent to the Old Course 17th tee/fairway and also overlooks the New Course, Jubilee Course and the wide beach. We... More

Relative to all hotels, it is much better than average, but relative to first class hotels, it was not exceptional. That said, I suspect it is by far the best in St. Andrews. A very nice, newish hotel in a sort of classic, homogenized style with spectacular views over the Old Course and the sea beyond. Pretty common areas and... More
