Another super stay at the Albany, The room was so comfortable and clean. Very comfortable bed and good sized television.Breakfast was good, all the staff so pleasant and helpful. Lovely room for guests to sit in/ have a drink sitting by wonderful wood burning stove. A really nice place to stay!

Room Tip: We had room 6 and thought it was great! Key a little tricky to get out of lock though.

This hotel is centrally located. It is a period building, tastefully decorated. The staff are friendly, attentive and efficient. The breakfasts are excellent. Can't fault it. This was our third stay and we'll be back.

We stayed at the Albany for one night as we were visiting friends in St Andrews. Check-in and welcome were good, and the room was clean, if a little cramped for two. Breakfast was excellent and the location is good. However, the mattress was not the most comfortable and it is very difficult to find a convenient parking place outside the hotel.

Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review of your recent stay with us. I am delighted to hear you enjoyed breakfast with us and the team looked after you well. I have note your comments on the mattress and will certainly look at replacing this. Parking is fairly busy here in St Andrews but does tend to quieten done late afternoon early evening and you can generally find a space at that time. I do hope to welcome you back in the future.

Excellent breakfast, efficient and friendly staff. Ideal location, very near main area for shopping, eating. This is my second time at Albany and surprised to be welcomed by same group of people. Familiar faces makes it more homey.

Room Tip: Smaller than standard room sizes.

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.

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.
