Not being a golfer, it's an odd choice for me perhaps, but it was near by to a friend's birthday. We were lucky in that the weather was stunning all weekend and the view out over the bay is truly one to admire. I arrived to0 early for my room, but was headed out anyway, so no problem although I...

An absolutely delightful experience!!!! The attention to detail, the professionalism of the staff and the ambience in the rooms plus the view of the Old Course makes this hotel a must stay if you are in the St Andrews area. Ideally located in St Andrews, this hotel caters to its guests every need.

We went there in July for an engagement gift from my parents, to have Afternoon Tea. It was beautiful, absolutely gorgeous. However, when going to reception to ask for a wedding brochure, we met an incredibly stuck up receptionist who made us feel anything but important. When somebody looks down their nose at you, it leaves a sour taste in...

This hotel, though expensive to stay in, has got very good service. Staff are polite and helpful. Amenities in the room are basic but all you need to do is just call the housekeeping and they will send you the items like shavers and extra water. Bathtub is deep which is good for soaking but a bit difficult to get...

We were welcomed in to the hotel and offered a glass of bubbly at reception. The card for my Birthday was a nice touch. The staff were excellent and although it was pricey, the treatments in the spa were top rate. The food and service in Sands Grill was great. We will definitely be back.
