Reviewed 8 September 2012

In June of 2012 six of us from the Deep South of MS, GA and FL arrived to a tiny corner in Scotland, a nine iron from the Old Course, and a million miles from worry. We were greeted warmly each morning by Jack and each evening by Sheena who made us feel at home. Their staff offered great service with smiles, and knew our drink preferences and offered their suggestions!

This group included my son and brother, a cousin and two friends - a trip long in planning and eagerly anticipated. We stayed at the spacious Auchterlonie Suite and loved it! We highly recommend the suite as we felt part of the Dunvegan atmosphere but able to have our own private space for storytelling. Looking out the window over at the Pub was special as I saw so many folks celebrating life.

It all happens on that corner because of Jack and Sheena.
Thank you for making this trip so special.

We will return.
Thank you TripAdvisor for introducing us to the Dunvegan!

This hotel is perfectly located adjacent to the St. Andrews Golf Links. The pub and restaurant are a great meeting place after a day of golf or sightseeing. Food ample and delicious, especially the steak and ale pie.

The Dunvegan is the place to stay while you are in St. Andrews. My friend and I stayed at the Dunvegan last weekend for a long golf weekend. Outstanding atmosphere and customer service, great food, clean nice-spacious rooms. Sheena helped us sort transportation, sorted the ballot for the old course, and got us on to Kingsbarns. All no problem, always willing to help. The history of the place with golf photos all over, golf on the TV, caddies in from the old course, you can see why this was voted the best 19th hole in the world. I am fortunate to travel all over the world, and the Dunvegan is in my all time Top 3! I will be back again! Thanks again Sheena and Jack!

On a recent return trip to the Dunvegan, we felt like we were being welcomed home by Jack, Sheena and their terrific staff. What a perfect place to stay when visiting St. Andrews--great service, central location and amazing atmosphere! We enjoyed fine dining in their Claret Jug restaurant and great bar food and service in the pub, an historic gathering place for golfers and caddies from all over the world. Looking forward to our next stay at the Dunvegan!!

Absolutely the best Hotel and food in St. Andrews. The service was great and the big shower in the room was a welcome site after ten days in Scotland/ England. This is a must stay in St. Andrews!!!
