I really enjoyed my three night stay here. The staff were terrific, the breakfast ample and the bed comfortable! The rooms are quite small but well appointed. You can hear the plumbing of the room next door from time to time but this may have been only in the single room I occupied. Overall, staying at the Albany was an...

I'd recommend this hotel to anyone - extremely central, warm and friendly service, well equipped room, with a radiator that can be turned off, and a window that opens. And good food (e.g. catering for coeliacs).

The hotel was friendly and the staff were very welcoming but there a few things that the hotel could improve to make it a more pleasant stay. We arrived and went to our rom which was freezing cold. There is electric heating and it wasn't turned on. The room itself is maybe a bit dated but it was very clean....

I have been to the Albany Hotel a number of times before and always found it comfortable, clean, cozy, efficient and friendly. The best hotel in St Andrews for the price. Excellent location close to the golf course, university and the town centre.

Our first impressions were fine at the Albany Hotel - we were greeted by very friendly staff, the reception & small lounge were both very welcoming and our room also seemed most acceptable. Unfortunately it is amazing in this day & age that a hotel offers their guests showers that went out with the Ark! Ours had just 2 settings...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a small, friendly, informal 3 star hotel. The first in St Andrews to be awarded the prestigious title 'Townhouse Hotel' by the Scottish Tourist Board. The quaint old building has a warm personality all of its own. You will love the craftsmanship of the many original features. Built from 1764, the hotel consists of two Georgian terraced houses, both exactly the same layout, built for two brothers by their father, Mr Thomas Low. With only 22 rooms (all en-suite), we are able to maintain very high standards in accommodation and service without losing our warm and caring attitude towards our guests. Special, great value seasonal, weekend and golf breaks are often available, so contact the hotel for details. The hotel will also be delighted to help arrange golf, sightseeing tours and visits to places of interest. We look forward to you spending some time with us at The Albany Hotel and getting a real flavour for everything St Andrews has to offer. ... more   less
