We were surprised by this hotel. It is so un-Scottish in architecture and character. A modern building on a grand scale, with spacious public areas, valet parking and shuttle bus, it is more something we would expect to find in North America. If you are looking for a country house atmosphere, this is not the place to come. However, the accommodation is modern, comfortable and, above all, quiet. We ate in the bar at night and the food and service were fine. The gym is well-equipped and the staff are pleasant and welcoming. When the weather is bad, it has a certain soulless feel to it and the large atrium can be cool and uninviting. It is set out of St Andrews itself, beyond walking distance - hence the hourly shuttle bus.
