“The Dunvegan- St. Andrews...Boys Annual Golf Trip”
Reviewed 30 June 2013

Well done to the entire Dunvegan Team...Sheena and Jack have put together a brilliant team that knows how to take care of their customers! Clean rooms, laundry service and by far the BEST food and drinks in town. A "Special Thank You" to Lindsay and bar staff for taking such good care of us; great stories and many memories to be told! Can't wait to plan our next trip to The Dunny.
Cheers

My Son and I recently spent a week playing golf in St. Andrews to celebrate my 60th birthday. We stayed at The Dunvegan Hotel and enjoyed every minute of our stay. From our arrival until check out, owners Jack and Sheena Willoughby made us feel like we were part of their family. The friendly attentive staff and convenient location make The Dunvegan THE place to stay and socialize in St. Andrews. It has the best 19th hole in town, where you can enjoy a post round beer and have a few good laughs with fellow golfers from around the world. We especially enjoyed their tasty burgers and steaks as well as the huge Scottish breakfast each morning before we hit the links.
This was our first trip to St. Andrews and staying at The Dunvegan turned out to be one of the smartest decisions we made!!

Room Tip: Room 5 (The Jack Nicklaus Room) is the furthest room away from the bar and is very quiet.

This place has it all. Location..about a 5 iron to the first tee of the old course at St. Andrews. Amenities..a restaurant, bar, balcony, breakfast area, and quiet rooms. But most of all Sheena and the wait staff are off the charts great. Not a place to curl up and read a book and go to bed early. But for a guys trip...no better place could exist.

Room Tip: Book this place early, very hard to get reservations.

While celebrating our 38th wedding anniversary on our first trip to Scotland, we discovered fun, outstanding food, and warm fellowship at the Dunvegan. Every day we enjoyed the smiles of our hosts, Sheena and Jack, as well as friendship of the cheery staff as we returned each day to the Golfers Lounge Bar. The beer was refreshing, the whisky was smooth, and the food was delicious. It was impossible to walk into the bar and not enter into a friendly conversation with other golfers. We found the rooms to be very comfortable and remarkably quiet. Our visit to St. Andrews was six days long, and we truly felt as if we were leaving "family" when we departed and returned to the United States. There is no question that we will return.

The Dunvegan is in the best location - just 1/2 block from the #1 tee box of the Old Course. Jack, Sheena and Lindsey are fabulous hosts and make you feel right at home. We had a HUGE room with 2 doubles for just the 2 of us. I wasn't feeling well one night and they brought soup and crackers to my room. This is the place to stay to swap golfing stories, watch golf and live golf!!

I was the organizer for a group of 8 golfers to Scotland. One of my priorities when making the arrangements, aside from securing tee times at the Old Course, was the selection of the Dunvegan to call our home base for 5 days. The Dunvegan has a well-earned reputation as the “place to stay” in St. Andrews. It has earned this solid reputation because of the efforts of Sheena and Jack, the conscientious owners of the Dunvegan, and their hard-working, welcoming and personable staff.
From the beginning of my organization efforts, Sheena was extremely responsive and a wealth of local information and assistance.
Our group had an incredible and enjoyable stay at the Dunvegan. The rooms are comfortable; the location so convenient with a 2 minute walk to the Old Course; breakfasts and meals are superb; and the ambience in the pub is second-to-none. The pub and the entire inn is a shrine to St. Andrews golf. One can spend hours viewing the photographs and memorabilia.
A big kudos to the best bar staff in Scotland: Lindsey, Nikki, Luke and the rest of the team. We loved your enthusiasm, efficiency and relished the laughter every night.
If you are a golfer and planning a trip to the home of golf, then you absolutely must consider the Dunvegan as your home in St. Andrews. Our Scotland golf trip was a “bucket-list” trip for several of us. Each one of us left St. Andrews vowing that when we return, the Dunvegan will again be on top of our priority list.
Thanks Sheena, Jack and the Dunvegan team for your wonderful contribution to our “million dollar memory”!
Cheers!

Had a great 3 night stay at the Dunvegan. Perfectly located a block from the Old Course. Sheena and Jack were great hosts. They even got up early to make us breakfast at 6am prior to our early round at Carnoustie. Bar is the best golf bar in Scotland. One night a local gave our group of 5 a one hour midnight course on scottish whiskies at his expense. Truly memorable. A must visit.
