I arrived at the Golf Hotel around 8:30 pm and was warmly greeted by Kerry who showed me to my room and informed me that I was still in time for dinner. Room 8 had 2 double beds and nice clean bath but no view. I went to the dining room and had a hot dish of steak pie with fresh peas in the pod. Delicious! I proceeded to the crowded bar room where a World Cup game was in progress. I sat down with a friendly group of people from New Zealand to watch the game. Over the course of my stay I sampled several single malt whiskies with the locals, caddies and other tourists that I met. The large and comfortable indoor/outdoor dining area and excellent food are a definite plus.
The Golf Hotel is an excellent place to stay for golfing, walking the Fife Coastal Path or visiting the the historic remains of Crail Castle, the old walled harbor or the 12C church and Crail Pottery. The St Andrews to Leven bus stops right outside the door.
I had a very pleasant and memorable experience at the Golf Hotel and would highly recommend it to anyone planning a visit to Scotland. I shall return!!!
