We stayed in the Auchterlonie Suite which is a 3-bedroom, 2-bath suite across the street from the hotel. It was perfect for our extended family of 5. Sheena and Jack, the owners, were very helpful. Delicious dinner and great breakfast. The hotel is 1/2 block from the Old Course 18th hole - perfect location. Would highly recommend.

After travelling from Australia, my wife and I stayed at the Dunvegan for two nights in August 2014. Our hosts Jack and Sheena have created a pub which is a shrine to the game of Golf. Located "a nine iron from the old course", the Dunvegan demands you pay her attention and gaze at her walls and ceilings which are... More

From the minute you walk in, you are made to feel like family at this perfectly situated hotel within walking distance to the key St Andrews Golk Links. Jack and Sheena are hosts extraordinaire and their staff could not be more accommodating. If you are lucky enough to get a room at the Dunvegan, you will not be disappointed. We... More

Hats off to Sheena & Jack! This is my second time staying @ The Dunvegan and is probably the friendliest place I have ever stayed at. My first visit (2008) was with 7 other male golfers and it was simply outstanding! My second time (Late April 2014) was just my wife and I. My wife is a non-golfer and her... More

If you are a golfer, there is simply no better place to stay in St Andrews. Jack and Sheena are the best hosts in town. They also will go out of their way to meet your needs for early breakfasts or late dinners allowing you to work around tee times, travel plans etc. You would be making a mistake if... More

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
