The Dunvegan Hotel is The perfect place to stay in St. Andrews. This trip to Scotland was a dream come true for us. While my husband played The Old Course, I wandered throughout the streets of St. Andrews and we ended each day at The Dunvegan. This cozy hotel has comfortable affordable rooms with a fantastic pub that is always... More

We took the "trip of a lifetime" to Scotland and St. Andrews. The Dunvegan Hotel was the perfect compliment to playing The Old Course and sight-seeing around the area. Jack and Sheena are gracious hosts. The restaurant served delicious meals and the bar was a great place to unwind after a day of golf or sight-seeing. While the accommodations cater... More

Stayed here on a Hidden Links golf tour and it was the most fun I've ever had, owners were great and the staff incredibly friendly, bar is the center of the action in St. Andrews! Thinking about planning another trip and there is no doubt where I will be staying!

the Dunvegan Hotel is 150 yards from the tee box at the Old Course, so when you are staying here, you are in the heart of St. Andrews, with the town itself beginning just a few yards in the other direction from the Old Course. Don't stay here if you are looking for a large modern room - stay at... More

We had an amazing experience at The Dunvegan Hotel in St. Andrews! Besides being in walking distance from The Old Course, The Dunvegan was charming, comfortable and had every possible amenity. Owners Sheena and Jack Willoughby have created an upbeat and welcoming atmosphere for all guests. They understand the needs of golfers and are ready with information and recommendations to... More

We stayed at the Dunvegan for a week based on the recommendation of my father who had stayed there a few years earlier - it was an unforgettable experience. From the moment we arrived, Sheena (the owner) was very welcoming and instructed us where to store our clubs for the week (convenient locker next to the bar). We were jet... More

Two members of '64 went to the Aggie Bar for our 50th reunion (couldn't make it to College Station). One of owners played Aggie War Hymn as we walked in. What a great bar!! Great local beer on tap and wonderful food. Strongly recommend the chili; a Texas recipe. If in St. Andrews, don't miss this bit of Texas in... More

The Dunvegan is hands down the best in St Andrews. I just got back from a solo golf/birthday trip, this place is amazing. Jack and Sheena (owners) make you feel so at home, they are very hands on and helpful in anyway they can be. I stayed for 5 nights and waundered all over town and always ended up back... More

By far the best place to stay, eat and drink in St Andrews. Excellent value, superb quality food (the steaks just melt in your mouth, the burgers are all home made and freshly cooked) and the atmosphere in the bar and restaurant is very friendly and welcoming. The owners, Jack and Sheena can't do enough for you and the staff... More
