I was so excited to stay at the old course but I have left disappointed! When we checked in, on Hogmanay we got offered a glass of prosecco which was nice & our room was a good size, dated (but I know a refurb is underway) with a view of scaffolding & the car park. - £270 was a bit...

Luxurious traditional hotel in the centre of St Andrews with magnificent views over the course and coast. Excellent service and the food was amazing from breakfast to dinner. A trip to the spa is a must, first class service.

A real enjoyable 2 night stay at this great hotel . Service Is a given ... add a great breakfast and dinner with a view that is unrivalled in the UK. It was a stroke of genius to place the restaurant/bar on the 4 floor with stunning views over the course and old town.

Thoroughly enjoyed our pre Christmas break. A fabulous suite overlooking the golf course and beach. Could not have asked for better. Also enjoyed an excellent afternoon tea with a gin French martini- made by special request. All staff were exceptionally pleasant and most helpful- nothing was a bother. Would certainly return!
