Decided to visit the spa as part of a trip to Scotland. I had the pregnancy massage and my other half had the hot stone massage. Very welcoming on arrival and spa is nice overall, especially the thermal area- the jacuzzis are large and obviously quite new. The relaxation rooms are nice but when I finished my treatment at 11am...

Stayed on Friday night in an Old Course suite. Was able to check in early to what was a truly fabulous room with views over the 17th hole and up to the town. Staff are polite and efficient. A glass of prosecco on arrival sets the standard for the rest of your stay. We made full use of the spa...

Again can not fault the staff or hotel everything was to the standard expected understandably they are now moving forward to start the renovations which can only improve this great hotel. I did have a small complaint which was dealt with very quickly and professionally. I will return once it opens its roots again after renovations

We travel to St Andrews every year for a family catch-up and our stay in the Old Course Hotel is always very comfortable. The staff are very friendly and courteous and the breakfasts, although busy, are served promptly with a good selection to choose from. The views are splendid and the extra cost for a golf course view is definitely...

Treated my girlfriend to a spa day, we've been here before about 5 months ago so we knew what we were getting. Superb treatments, well looked after by the staff and a delicious 2 course meal! Would definitely return! and the spa day package is value for money! The only change I would say is the food menu needs changing...

I do not have anything but praise for this hotel as the room for its classification was very well fitted and had an excellent comfortable bed. Staff are very good. Maybe one slight negative was the view of the Old Course was obscured by the scaffolding outside the window ( but handy if there was a fire ). Also make...

Stayed one night in an old course suite. Fab service from check in to check out. Used the spa with amazing massage followed by a great dinner, tasting menu with accompanied wines. View from room of 1st 2nd 17th and 18th holes. With great view across to sea. Recommend to all.
