Booked the hotel sight unseen for a fri nite-sun morning stay. Passing by the town and hoped to walk on the old course..a few days out i emailed to confirm my stay, and got a wonderful lesson in what great service means...and as a reference point, i have top status with marriott, spg, and hyatt. I worked with a lady... More

Staff were lovely and place was good for the money! So central and so charming. Would definitely stay here again! The linen was so soft and fresh, felt like I was staying with family. The breakfast was good value for money and filled me up for the day!

Hotel is across street from University. A number of very nice rooms including a suite featuring a private garden. Easy parking on street near hotel. Very near sightseeing at St. Andrews Cathedral and only 5 minute walk from the center of town and 10 minutes to Starter for Old Course. Usually quieter on this end of town.

My husband and I stayed at the Albany for 5 nights the third week in June. I wanted to give a better rating as we liked the location, handy for everything, and the breakfast was good, waitresses very friendly. However, the very minimum I expect of a 3 star hotel, especially one that charges £140 a night, is a good... More

We recently stayed at the Albany Hotel in St. Andrews, Scotland. While our room was small, it was very clean and comfortable. The breakfasts are phenomenal ! The service is excellent and we found all of the staff we had interactions with to be extremely friendly and helpful. The location is perfect...close to the golf course, restaurants, the cathedral, castle,... More

We were 3 travelers. We had 2 rooms within a room, sharing the same bathroom. We had a patio with a table overlooking gardens. Breakfast was delightful. The service was excellent. It was within walking distance of St Andrews golf course, the castle and cathedral ruins, and shopping. Very quaint.

We got into town late, and the room was all set up as requested with extra beds and was great. The service was impeccable and they arranged for an early breakfast - 5:30am so that I could make an early tee time at the Old Course! Breakfast was fully ready to go and the service was above and beyond in... More

We stayed in the family room (1 double, 1 single) on the top floor -- no lift so you will schlep your bags up multiple winding stairs. Neat old hotel with lots of character. Breakfast was very good. The street was a little noisy as partiers were on the street. I thought the price was a bit steep but that... More

Spent five nights at this small and centrally located hotel. We were a party of four golfers all in single rooms and found the facilities perfect for our requirements. Nice clean rooms, well appointed and serviced. Great breakfasts, enjoyed by all. This hotel has a very comfortable lounge at the front which was a perfect meeting place each evening and... More

I was a bit nervous about staying here because of some of the previous comments, and because I was booked into a single room, but in fact everything was fine and I enjoyed my two nights there very much.
