1st time to St Andrews. Visited for Christening over Bank Holiday weekend! Great location within walking distance of bars restaurants beach and links! Good value compared to other options in St Andrews! It isn't 5 luxury or quirky boutique but that's not how it markets itself! Small and compact room but perfectly functional! Nice hot shower! Breakfast was excellent! Service... More

Our party of six had the pleasure of staying at The Albany for three days Aug 16 through 18, 2014. I can not imagine staying any where else where the people, service and friendliness could have been any better. Some of us had been to Scotland before, others had not, but all agree they would highly recommend The Albany to... More

Stayed here on Wednesday night. Large double room was a good size with large shower/bathroom all very we'll presented. Bed was two singles pushed together but very comfortable . Breakfast selection was good especially the cooked menu. Went for traditional Scottish breakfast which was excellent. Buffet style cereals fruit, yoghurt etc also available . Overall a comfortable pleasant stay.

Friendly staff, nice breakfast, has a golf club storage room, which helped. Had room 2, which is on the top floor, no lift, door height less than 6', ceilings only slightly higher, shower not big enough for normal human and could not get consistent water temperature. Would not recommend for the price.

For £100 per night this was not very good. More like a B & B than a hotel. Rooms and bathrooms are tiny - also electric showers that produce only a very poor flow of water. Surely it would be possible to plumb in some decent showers. Breakfast ordinary - served in a dungeon type room in the basement. Bar... More

A great little hotel. Friendly, warm and welcoming. For golfers the rooms were all you would want, well appointed, clean and comfortable. The staff were excellent and had a great knowledge of the local restaurants and bars. The breakfast was superb - the best I had during my four weeks in Scotland. It is very difficult to fault this place.... More

The rooms are simple but clean. Bed comfortable. Mixed reviews on staff: Some delightful and extremely helpful, unfortunately one man at the front-desk was unfriendly and curt. Don't skip breakfast. There is a small buffet, but the items you order from the menu (included in price of room) are hot and delicious. There is also a patio and nice garden... More

Great staff, very friendly and helpful. The rooms are quite small but well-appointed. The location is perfect for just about anything one would want to do in St. Andrews. Rooms on the north side are noisier due to the street noise. Recommended.

All over service was commendable but the breakfast was truly special - we were spoilt for choice! Rooms were good. As golfers we always needed a hot shower and were never dissapointed. The Building is old but not run down. Good value. Good patronage! Good Value

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
