St. Andrews is all about location - and the Russell has it. From our room (Room 5 again), you have a view of the sea and beach and the Jubilee course, but step into the bay window and you look left towards the R&A and the 1st and 18 holes on the Old Course.
We were a group of 15 (golfers and wives) and found the Russell a great combination of value and quality. THe rooms are very comfortable with king size beds and modern renovated bathrooms. Breakfast is excellent and cooked to order, while the continental breakfast is slightly limited. But you need a cooked power breakfast to get around the Old Course!!! We had dinner at the hotel on three of 4 nights as it offered an excellent selection, great prices and interesting specials - thats why it seemed to attract so many locals. You can walk around all the tourist sites and shopping from the hotel and there is free street parking outside.
Look forward to returning.
