My husband & I had a fantastic stay here back in Feb. Wonderful service, beautiful spa, personal touches with arrival champagne & chocolates to the rooms. Very clean & well maintained. Great bars & restaurants! Ideal location for walking into St. Andrews. Going back in Oct for another stay - can't wait!

We had the most amazing time at the old course. We stayed in room 256 - Tiger woods suite. The room was huge, modern with beautiful views over the golf course and beach. We had afternoon tea and breakfast at the hotel both were delicious. Loved having breakfast overlooking that stunning view. The staff were all very friendly and went... More

I could not disagree more with the California golfers post on the 26th. We just spent 3 days at the Old Course Hotel and I found the stay excellent. Every staff member that I encountered really wanted to serve and went out of their way to serve. From the concierge to the front desk and the room cleaners, everyone was... More

We had a wonderful day at the Kohler Spa at the Old Course today. We were well looked after from start to finish. Our treatments were fabulous, our food was excellent and the facilities allowed us to enjoy a whole day of real relaxation. Particular thanks to Lorna McLeod for her outstanding service.

Nice facility that benefits unreasonably from having Old Course in the name and charges a high premium for it. Unfortunately, so successful and packed with tourists that world class customer service is no longer part of the package. They are simply too busy to bother, and if you don't like it they can always sell the room to someone else.... More

I managed to get a last minute deal at the old course hotel. We didn't have a view of the course which was a shame but nonetheless the hotel is great. The staff are attentive in the hotel and bars but its the setting which is amazing. Breakfast is served in the roadhole restaurant which is a true delight to... More

The hotel is ok, its a struggle to see it as a 5 star hotel as it could really do with being refurbished (certainly our room could have doe with it) and the service was amateur. Our room was big and clean, just a bit dated; nothing wrong with it, but definitely nothing to get excited about. The hotel overall... More

Dear Simon C, Thank you for your comments further to your stay with us back in March. You are absolutely correct in that some of our rooms are a little dated, and so we have recently taken the decision to close the hotel at the start of 2017, so that we can refurbish over 100 of our bedrooms. I was... More

We had our daughters wedding at the Hotel. It could not have been better. We had the ceremony in the conservatory, drinks reception on the fourth floor overlooking the golf course and the wedding breakfast and function in the main ballroom.
