“Very Pleasant 2 Night Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

First time to stay at this hotel but typically good Best Western hospitality and service. Friendly reception and dining-room staff. Great room with large comfortable bed. Totally recommended for business or pleasure. Golf course and sea front only short walk.

Great location, nice rooms and friendly staff. Decent restaurant too. We enjoyed lunch and the amazing view. Breakfast was even better. Forget any of the 'big' hotels and make this your first option next time you head for the wonderful town of St Andrews

Room Tip: Room with view of beach and St Andrew's clubhouse if you can get one

My Wife Son and I Spent Saturday and Sunday 19th & 20th April DBB. We occupied a Suite to the front of the Hotel, it was spacious. The view from our window of the Old Course Hotel and West Beach was Excellent.
The meals were First Class and Compliments to the Kitchen and Waiting Staff.
The Management and Reception were very Helpful/Friendly and could not do enough.
We will Certainly Return.

Room Tip: View from Rooms to the Front is Excellent

Stayed here for a long weekend as we were getting married in the University. It's a lovely hotel - although a bit quirky in its functionality. However the character of the place, the size of the accommodation and the really friendly staff all make for a relaxing time.

They ran an evening welcome reception for us and managed the unusual food (Basque Pintxos and Cider) to perfection. The Crema Brie was fabulous. Donna and her team did us proud. Our guests were VERY impressed with it all.

It is probably due something of an overhaul to the rooms but for the price, the location and the welcome it is great value. Having the suite with its own terrace overlooking the West Sands was very relaxing.

Room Tip: Many of the rooms have good sea views. None are noisy.

We stayed here for 2 nights and played golf at the old course. Everyone of the 8 of us could not fault any part of our stay here. We all had excellent rooms, very comfortable, spacious and clean with lovely high ceilings. The breakfast was very good, with an ample selection.
The best part of the Hotel were the staff who made us all feel very welcome and nothing was ever too much trouble.
Thanks

Ian & friends
