A very warm welcome awaited us at this charming hotel. We were given a delightful room with our own private terrace overlooking the walled garden. Nothing was too much trouble and we noticed several nice touches throughout our stay, from the bottled water by the bed to the books available to borrow. Highly recommended.

Located towards the top end of North Street, this is ideally sited for either the golf course or into the town, with a great selection of restaurants within 5 min walk. We stayed in the Garden apartment downstairs, which was ideal for the four of us, a separate bedroom and living quarters, with access out onto the sun trap garden,... More

Room was on the small side but has everything you need for a short break. Very clean and central to everything St Andrews has to offer. Good breakfast in the morning but dining room was very busy as it is on the small side, no problems though

A hotel right on the main street of St Andrews, an easy walk to the golf courses or shops and restaurants. The rooms are clean and comfortable but quite varied in size, ours (room 7) was quite small for a couple, we had a tough time trying to figure out where to open two suitcases. Staff were very helpful, and... More

Lovely hotel. Very clean, great breakfast and a short walk to the Old Course. The rooms are small and simple but plenty comfortable. The cool St. Andrews evenings made sleeping with the window open a treat. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay there again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a small, friendly, informal 3 star hotel. The first in St Andrews to be awarded the prestigious title 'Townhouse Hotel' by the Scottish Tourist Board. The quaint old building has a warm personality all of its own. You will love the craftsmanship of the many original features. Built from 1764, the hotel consists of two Georgian terraced houses, both exactly the same layout, built for two brothers by their father, Mr Thomas Low. With only 22 rooms (all en-suite), we are able to maintain very high standards in accommodation and service without losing our warm and caring attitude towards our guests. Special, great value seasonal, weekend and golf breaks are often available, so contact the hotel for details. The hotel will also be delighted to help arrange golf, sightseeing tours and visits to places of interest. We look forward to you spending some time with us at The Albany Hotel and getting a real flavour for everything St Andrews has to offer. ... more   less
