“Amazing wedding venue”
Reviewed 15 August 2014 via mobile

We got married here a few years ago- it was absolutely incredible! The setting, the food and the service were faultless. We felt utterly spoilt and the staff went above and beyond! Everyone commented on what a fabulous weekend they had!

Stayed August 2014, travelled as a couple

We had a view of the Old Course as promised and loved it! Every staff person was extremely gracious including front desk, housekeeping, restaurant, bellman, concierge, and spa. The breakfast buffet was wonderful with every choice you can imagine. Dining room also overlooks the Old Course. We loved the hotel and our whole stay in St. Andrews.

From the moment we pulled into the reception area, the recurrent impression was service. We and our luggage were propelled into our room overlooking the 17th and the sea and up to the club house. Reasonable sized room and a very good bathroom, although a bit of a walk from the lifts. There is a 'pub ' near the pro shop where we sat enjoying a post travel drink and watching the players heading up the course. The restaurant is excellent, again with high quality well trained staff and a delicious perfectly cooked steak. There is an excellent continental breakfast, including cooked selections and nice pastries.

Room Tip: They all looked good.

Returning to St Andrews where we married 37 years ago I chose the Old Course for a taste of luxury. I booked a late deal which included dinner bed and breakfast at almost half "normal" tariff. On arrival we were given a glass of prosecco which we enjoyed in the comfort of lobby. Our room was spacious, well appointed with view at front of hotel not over golf course. Dinner was at Ham's Hame a little walk away which would not have been ideal if weather was poor. Food was good and staff very attentive and pleasant.
We visited the spa beforehand which was both invigorating and relaxing! We slept very well and hotel was extremely quiet.
Breakfast was excellent although service was so quick that eggs were delivered before porridge had been eaten!
View was wonderful at our table by the window overlooking the Old Course which we were allocated because we arrived before the rush
All in all a very enjoyable stay. Our third time and we'd definitely return!

We have just returned from a one night stay in thus fabulous hotel. It was fantastic. Found a great deal for dinner bed and breakfast at less than half the normal price for just bed and breakfast. The hotel was everything that we thought it would be and more. The staff were all really friendly and helpful. Our room was lovely and the breakfast this morning was amazing. Last night we ate in Hams Hame which again was really nice. All in all a fantastic last minute break .

Room Tip: They all seemed to be lovely. Some had better views than others.

This hotel is magnificient by its location and the quality of the service, including at its restaurants. Enjoyed the superb room in front of the sea. The view is broad and superb. The rest of town is easily accessible by foot.

Room Tip: Unfortunately, the whole hotel is non-smoking, a fact that I learned only when I arrived, after book...

Hard to beat the first class experience at this wonderful Hotel right on the 17th hole of the Old Course. Expensive but worth the splurge. Walk to your tee times and all the restaurants in town.
Food in the Hotel, and at the great fairway side Pub on the grounds was excellent. Breakfast upstairs should not be missed either.

Room Tip: Choose room overlooking the course and the dunes and water beyond
