We played the Old Course and booked this hotel last minute. Ended up with a twin suite overlooking the course, the views were amazing. The staff are very friendly and professional and their attention to the covid guidelines was excellent. The breakfast was stunning too. Would stay there again without a doubt!

Staff are incredible. From check in and beyond they can’t do enough for you. We had a small issue which they dealt with immediately, they really couldn’t do enough. Location is fabulous and can’t be beaten as you can walk everywhere. Well done Rusacks, we will be back. Thank you.

Just back today from an overnight stay at the St Andrews Rusacks Hotel. Must say the staff are excellent and can’t do enough for you particularly Bekha who was exceptional and has a fantastic manner a real credit to the Hotel. Although the Hotel is going through some renovations with the new extension adding more modern rooms. The main hotel needs No deserves based on its History and Location a facelift which I am sure through time will happen. With all the above in mind totally enjoyed our stay and meals both Dinner and Breakfast were fantastic. We had the pleasure of staying in the Seve Ballesteros Room which had excellent views over the last hole of the famous golf course. Recommendation to the Chicago based group which are the new owners take it or leave it. Look after your staff they are the jewel in your crown. Until my next visit Thanks.

My Girlfriend and I stayed in a lovely room with an unbelievable view over the old course. The stay was superb from start to finish! Greeted by a lovely girl at reception who told us all about the hotel and the precautions the hotel has taken due to the virus (they made us feel very safe during the stay). Then the room itself was a big comfortable bed and the view cannot be matched! Even from our shower we could still see across the course!! Lovely breakfast in the morning which was delicious and of course the restaurant over looks the course and seaside swell!! could not be happier with the stay and would recommend to everyone! Seamus the general manager could not have been more helpful either, going the extra mile at every chance!! Thanks you Seamus and team for the stay, shall see you soon!!
