Although we have stayed in St Andrews many times this was our first visit to the Rusacks. As it was our anniversary we decided to have a weekend away and obtained a very good internet deal for the hotel.
I am giving my age away when I say I was immediately impressed by the old world charm of the building, spacious lounges with plenty of places to cosy down. The reception was very professional and friendly. Although we had only light luggage the porter insisted on taking it to our room and took me aback when he graciously refused a gratuity.
The room was spacious and well stocked with accessories. The bathroom was absolutely spotless and looked as if it had been recently upgraded. We had hardly sat down when the porter reappeared at the door with a bottle of champagne compliments of the management as the receptionist had asked when we arrived if it was a special occasion.
The restuarent meal was excellent and served by particularly friendly staff. The only disappointment was the same menu was presented on the second day with no alterations which meant we dined out on the second night. Try to obtain a window seat as the views are magnificent.
All in a very relaxing and comfortable weekend in very pleasant surroundings and well tended by efficient staff in all areas.
We will most certainly be back.
