Took a one night break here during Covid restrictions as resident inFife , hotel was beautifully decorated for the festive season and understandably very quiet but excellent Covid safety in place . Upgraded to a studio suite with lovely views , very spacious and comfortable. Swim in the spa very enjoyable having booked a time ahead . Staff all very pleasant . Good dinner and breakfast . A pleasant walk along the west sands the following morning .

What can i say about this hotel. From start to finish, the trip was out of this world. I booked a stay with the intention to propose to my girlfriend (she said yes!) and the attention to detail from all was outstanding. Firstly, all the staff from Guy who helped decorate the room to Hannah and Hollie for the best massages and everyone in between I would like to say a massive thank you. Nothing was too much and everything was done with a smile and room service was so quick. Secondly, the food was outstanding. Afternoon tea - do it! The breakfast was unreal and the special Indian tasting menu was the highlight (keep doing this more often!) We were given room 1029 after I was lucky enough to receive a complimentary upgrade and this suite did not disappoint. Its a shame to be back to reality. Any time you fancy a getaway, go here. And if a special occasion is the cards, trust the staff here and use their recommendations. I used a local balloon company (balloon boutique St Andrews) and a local flower company (balgove flower shed). We look forward to returning to room 1029 soon
