If you are on a golf trip and are looking for a great central location in the town of St. Andrews, want great food and enjoy talking about golf - THIS IS THE PLACE TO STAY!!! It is only a 100+ yards from the 18th green of the Old Course - the food is incredible with a great variety (burgers/steaks/fish/pasta) and the place is always packed with fellow golfers talking about the game / their rounds and various golf stories. Also - a great selection of beers on tap! By far the best owners I worked with when I set up this dream golf trip in May 2010 (13 rounds/10 days) to Scotland. Rooms are very clean and actually quite large as compared to others B & B's. You will be extremely happy if you make your hotel choice at the Dunvegan!!! Mike

The Dunvegan Hotel is a paradise for golfers but staying there with your non-golfing spouse will not be as special. If you are golfers, the star rating goes up one notch.

For the golfer, the Dunvegan Hotel is only a chip shot away from the St. Andrews golf links. For the non-golfer, it is conveniently located only a few minutes walk from the downtown.

Our room was very spacious with enough hangers in the closet to accomodate a changes of clothes at each hole. The water pressure in showers could blast any amount of sweat and sand accumulated during a day of hacking out of pot bunkers.

A room over the bar will be noisy if there is a golf event being broadcast from the United States. The time shift to North America ensures you will be hearing the drama late into the night. Should you then require an early morning breakfast due to an early tee time, the staff is very accomodating.

Second trip to the home of golf, second time staying in the Dunvegan Hotel. The location is unbeatable, just around the corner from the 1st tee of the Old Course but Jack and Sheena are the real hilights here, couldn't ask for better hosts. The hotel is small but the personality is large. The bar is full with locals and golfers but always a place to sit and grab a pint or a wee dram. The rooms are of standard size but the shower fixtures are wondeful (think plate size shower heads). Will go back in a heart beat!

I stayed with eight other colleagues at The Dunvegan during Open Championship week in July, and we (again) had the time of our lives. I say 'again' because when we visit venerable St. Andrews, there is no place else we'd consider staying. It's a wedge away from the 18th hole at the Old Course and just a short walk into town, so there's little need for driving. The food in the pub is great and the dinner fare in the back restaurant is some of the best we have experienced in our many trips through Scotland. Ask Jack for one of his special burgers and try a frosty pint of Bellhaven's Best!! The staff at the Dunvegan takes you in as family, which is nice to have when you are traveling to a foreign land. Been home for a week, and cannot wait for our next visit there. Cheers!

If you are visiting St. Andrews for golf you must stay at The Dunvegan or at least stop by for breakfast or a drink at some point during your stay. The Dunvegan adds to the charm, mystique and authenticity of the home of golf. The owners are more than accommodating and most friendly.

This was my third stay at The Dunvegan and as always it was fantastic. Jack and Sheena, along with the rest of their staff were brilliant, going above an beyond, to help our every need.

Situated just 100yrds from the 18th green at The Old Course, you couldn't ask for a better location.

Beds were very comfortable, rooms spotlessly clean and a great shower. What else do you need!?

Breakfast was great, with a choice of cooked breakfast, all served with a smile. We also ate in the restaurant on three nights of our stay, and as usual the food was excellent.

With a bar downstairs, which, whenever I have been there is always buzzing it really is a great place to stay, and I will be heading back in October without a doubt.
