My husband and I stayed at the Hotel du Vin on a golf package. The accommodations were wonderful. Coming from the US you have to be prepared that there is no air conditioning and the windows in the too only open approximately 6" from the bottom and there were no fans (if returning I would pack a small fan to circulate the air. With sunrise bring at 4:30 a.m. in June (actually woke us around 3:45 a.m.) you had to close the curtains to darken the room and then there was no air circulating.
The staff was outstanding. After the first day they knew us and our preferences at breakfast. Our room accommodations came with a complimentary Scottish breakfast (cereal, fruit, juice and Danish). Have to try the chocolate croissant they were wonderful.
The bed was very comfortable, but again as an American, missed having a sheet and not just a duvet when it was so warm in the evening. Heard other guests talking about how much warmer it was on the upper floors. We were on the 1st floor above the lobby. Our room was gorgeous because it overlooked the North Sea.
To any ladies traveling, in our room you had to plug the provided hair dryer in an outlet behind a chair and navigate the cord to get in front of the provided mirror. I managed by the 3rd day to figure out how to stack pillows to sit in front of the mirror and dry my hair since there was not a desk chair to use and the seating chairs were too large.
Hotel du Vin exceeded my expectations and I would highly recommend if staying in St. Andrews. Convenient to the Old Course and the University. Easy to get to shops and restaurants along with major sights.
