We stayed on the May Day Holiday weekend & the hotel is in a beautiful setting, it's clean enough and the staff were helpful/friendly.
However, there's a few minor gripes:
We were staying in a suite and we had to pay for the Wi-Fi......I stayed in a Holiday Inn Express for business last week and got free Wi-Fi!!
The food in Kittocks Den was nice, however we ordered room service for our toddler before going out, and got a very bland fishcake and some potato & leek soup which was a bland grey water i.e. no visible signs of veg. Room service adds a £3 delivery charge and a 15% "service charge" which brought the bill to £19 for a small fishcake and watery soup. Not good value.
The Clubhouse is touted as "cliff top setting with magnificent views over the bay of St Andrews" which turns "formal" dining in the evening. Yes, the setting is fantastic but at the end of the day it is just a clubhouse with a gastro pub menu, the prices did reflect this though but if there was a menu available online I doubt we would have went there.
