“Friendly staff”
Reviewed 14 June 2011

The hotel is in a nice location on a quiet street, close to shopping , resturaunts and of course golf. The staff is helpful and friendly. The breakfast was good. There are many different sizes to the rooms. Our was VERY small and barely room to turn around in the bath. Ask for one of the larger rooms and you will be fine. It was quite expensive at 113 pound for two but then this is St Andrews. I would stay here again but ask for a larger room.

Chatty friendly service at reception when I booked in. Small bedroom and shower cubicle but bed comfortable. Friendly service at breakfast and food ok. Overpriced at £87 for B&B but would stay here again.

The hotel is very well placed, rooms small but pleasant and clean but very overpriced at £95.00 for a single.

Stayed just one night at this hotel. The position was good being a short walk to everything and parking available outside. I thought it was expensive for what it was which was a tiny room and bathroom and overall pretty cramped everywhere etc. Reception staff were just OK but staff in breakfast room were friendly and helpful. Would probably stay elsewhere next time.

I picked the Albany due to price and location. I searched trip advisor and thought there were a couple of average reviews but I booked just the same.
So on arrival and during our overnight stay it was actually a lot better than I had first expected. The receptionist was very helpful and when we asked about a quick snack made sandwiches without hesitation. Room was fresh and clean and nothing negative whatsoever.
Breakfast was good also and again anything asked for was provided quickly and without difficulty. I would return here no probs !
Phoned the hotel direct and got better price than on alpharooms or booking.com etc !!

The room we had was very clean and tidy. Reception was very helpful. Breakfast and wireless internet are included. The only drawback for me was that the beds were a bit small. I am 5'9" and felt that the bed was too short, and that made sleeping a bit awkward.

Otherwise, this is a great little hotel!!
