We booked this hotel as we needed overnight accommodation in St Andrews. As the town is quite small the options are few and many were very expensive. As we were there for a wedding and only needed B&B and a shower, it suited us fine. The location on North Street was perfect as it was almost directly across from St... More

Took advantage of a weekend break when passing through St Andrews recently, we were across from France and wanted somewhere with traditional Scottish hospitality, the room was perfect, cosy warm and clean, the staff very welcoming and friendly and the breakfast , everything from full Scottish to kippers, we have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone

Wasn't arriving in St Andrews until midnight for a 9am meeting so I stayed (I mean crashed out!!) in a small single. Excellent value for a small but perfectly formed room, comfy single bed very clean en- suite and windows that actually open for some fresh air. Breakfast was very tasty and with a wide choice of buffet style cereals,... More

Stayed here for the weekend as taking student daughter back to University after her spring break. My usual hotel was unfortunately booked up due to Mother's day weekend but glad I stayed here instead. The Hotel has real homely and much loved feel. My single room was spotlessly clean and the bathroom immaculate. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful.... More

Just back from long weekend staying at albany hotel with family.

We stayed on a Thursday night and stayed in the garden suite as there were 4 adults and one infant. The room couldn't have been more perfect. Tucked away so we didn't get disturbed at all. Perfect for families. Breakfast and the service was great. We will definitely return next time we're in St. Andrews.

We went to St Andrews as a wedding party of 8, we had four rooms booked and had a fab time, the beds are really comfortable, and the breakfast was great. We had to book out at 10:30 because the wedding was at 11:00 but after the wedding the hotel owners were happy to let us in to change in... More

Stayed one night with 2 friends and thought this hotel was fabulous. Had a wonderful communal bath, but there were no matches to light the candle (no ambience). But that was only a minor issue. The bed's were delightful, so cosy and warm. The breakfast was one of the best, eggs were poached perfectly. One of the best eggs I've... More

My family and I decided to spend the weekend in st Andrews, and after a great stay last year we decided to stay at the Albany Hotel again. I wish we'd tried somewhere else. It all started off well: pleasant and fast check-in, the room was clean and the beds were comfortable. Things started to go wrong around 2.30 in... More

I stayed here for a night right before an interview for the St Andrews university the following morning and was very impressed by the service received. The room was very well furnished and felt like I was staying at a hotel with a much higher star rating. In booking this room I had to make last minute changes such as... More
