My wife treated me to an overnight stay here and we were both very impressed. The hotel is centrally located in St. Andrews in a sympathetically refurbished old building; it looks impressive from the exterior and feels very "exclusive" because there are so few bedrooms (I think

Hello! We're right in the heart of St. Andrews, so only a few steps away from many pubs and the cinema, and only a minute away from the town's shops. The Old course is a 5-10 minute walk from the hotel. We hope to welcome you soon! The Kinnettles Hotel

Hello, Thank you for your query. I'm afraid due to our building being so old, and listed, we do not have a lift. Our central location also limits us with parking facilities. There is a free car park 100yds from the front of the hotel however which we can assist you in getting parked in. Also if you have a Disbility Parking Badge there are spaces directly outside the front door. Please feel free to call us if you have any further queries. Best regards, Grant Cooper, General Manager.

Wondering about Parking?
Thank you for your question. We do not have hotel parking, however there is free parking to either side of us. Parking along The Scores is also free and a fairly short walk away. The parking at the golf museum and sea life centre is free only during the winter. If you struggle parking on the day of your visit, we will be more than happy to help. All the best, Kinnettles Management Team
