Certificate of Excellence
We are a small, friendly, informal 3 star hotel. The first in St Andrews to be awarded the prestigious title 'Townhouse Hotel' by the Scottish Tourist Board. The quaint old building has a warm personality all of its own. You will love the craftsmanship of the many original features. Built from 1764, the hotel consists of two Georgian terraced houses, both exactly the same layout, built for two brothers by their father, Mr Thomas Low. With only 22 rooms (all en-suite), we are able to maintain very high standards in accommodation and service without losing our warm and caring attitude towards our guests. Special, great value seasonal, weekend and golf breaks are often available, so contact the hotel for details. The hotel will also be delighted to help arrange golf, sightseeing tours and visits to places of interest. We look forward to you spending some time with us at The Albany Hotel and getting a real flavour for everything St Andrews has to offer.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone. St Andrews has always been a mecca for the wealthy, privileged and Tory brigades, and because they are so paranoid they use their money to keep away those less well off. This hotel is a welcome relief from such barefaced financial

Hi. Is there parking available at your hotel or nearby? Thanks.
Hi, there is free parking outside the hotel but it can be quite busy during the day, genrally if you drive around few times you can usually get a space. If not there is metered parking close by which some of our guests use and then move their cars later in the day.
