Whether you're a golf fan or not it's hard to beat for location especially if you book a room overlooking the Old Course. We had the Bobby Jones Suite and it had the best views and was very spacious. I can't be as complimentary to the food. We had dinner in Rocca on our first night and although it was...

Always loved St Andrews but staying at Rusacks made it special. Adjacent to the Old Course (which you are allowed to walk on every Sunday) and within easy walking distance to the town centre. Excellent room and great food and service. Paradise for golf lovers and paradise if you're not.

I had paid for a Kingsize Bed / Room do was expecting something good, particularly so give the price. We were allocated Room 17 which was one of the rooms overlooking the car park / golf course.

My wife and I stayed at the MacDonald Rusacks hotel on 2nd January 2017. Initially were extremely excited to be staying at such a lovely hotel and having a few days away to end the festive period. However, from the minute we entered the hotel, the service was extremely poor. We arrived around 2pm and I asked if there was...
