I had read the two previous reviews and frankly, was concerned that our stay would be a nightmare. It was quite the contrary. The staff was very accommodating and hurried the preparation of our suite so we could check in early. We found the restaurant and Scottish pub to be excellent and very friendly. The food was well prepared and plentiful. Prices were at or above average, but much of that had to do with the dollar-to-pound exchange rate (nearly $2 to 1 pound). I was ill one day during the stay and the chef prepared a special bland rice pudding to get me through. During my 24 hour illness the staff allowed us to do "take-out" despite rules against that.
This resort is somewhat isolated so do not visit with the idea that you are going to a five star property with room service and hotel-like amenities It is well maintained and comfortable, but you must be prepared to explore and enjoy the fact you are in the country and that a trip to the nearest village is an adventure ... especially when you must learn to drive on the left!.. We found the peace and quiet a refeshing escape from the hustle and bustle of America.
Take advantage of the resort's special dining events. They made the week very enjoyable. There are numerous pubs and inns within easy driving distance, but the experience requires a car to be fully enjoyed. I was concerned about the weather in late February, but this part of Scotland is generally milder than its surroundings, so the weather was somewhat milder than anticipated. If you play golf rest assured that they play year around in this part of Scotland. St. Andrews is delightful and only 10 miles away. Consider that you are in the Scottish countryside, expect to make the vacation an adventure and you will be pleasantly surprised by Kilconquhar (by the way, that's prononced kinocker?.
