“Another lovely stay in St Andrews”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

We have stayed here before and really enjoyed the hotel. This time the thing that really stood out was the hospitality of the staff. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left nothing was too much trouble. They found things out for us, recommended places to go and checked that we had everything we needed. The hotel was great but the staff make it a fantastic time. Thanks to all the people that looked after us.

Room Tip: Views across the sea are great but the rooms at the back are very nice as well.

Great location. Could hit a lob wedge to the Old Course 1st tee and close to St. Andrews nightlife. Friendly staff. Nice sized room. older hotel but nicely renovated. Highly recommend it for golfing trips.

Great experience. I stayed at this hotel for 6 nights. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. The bed is super comfortable. The location is amazing. It is situated right by the North Sea and the Old Course, which results in a great view.

From check in to check out, this hotel was fabulous. Very conveniently located, and could not have been nicer. Staying at this hotel made our visit to St. Andrews our best experience in Scotland. The staff went above and beyond to make our stay a pleasant one.

Room Tip: Try to get sea view

A typical "period" hotel, fitting in with the history of St Andrews. Rooms have character. Staff friendly, nothing is too much trouble. Good breakfast. Parking always available at front of hotel. Would use again.

This place was great. An ideal location overlooking the water, city and St. Andrews golf course. The rooms were spacious, clean and well appointed. The restaurant and pub were an excellent spot to start our day and end our evening. In addition the staff was very helpful. I would highly recommend this hotel.

The reservation process for this hotel was a bit convoluted. I thought I had booked a sea view room but it turns out I was supposed to indicate that preference in the comments section of the online booking form. Be sure to do that if you reserve online. The only sea view room left at check in was a junior suite on the 2nd floor so my friend and I did take it. We were on the second floor and had a partially obstructed view because of the first floor iron decorations sticking out in front of our windows. The room was okay but I was expecting much more from this hotel at this price. At breakfast we were seated in a corner by the buffet even though there were tables by the windows but they were supposedly occupied. Thank goodness we only stayed at this hotel for one night. There are plenty of other places to try down the street for the next visit to St Andrews.
