Great hotel at St. Andrews

The hotel was right next to the 1st and 18th fairways and the views from the restaurant were great. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Perfect

We celebrated our sons birthday with a trip to Scotland. Our room, which was beautifully decorated overlooked the 18th tee and the ocean. The hotel was spotless. We had the hotel breakfast and it was superb. The hotel had old world charm with all the modern day necessities. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. We are planning another trip for the early fall and wouldn't stay anywhere else. LOVED everything about this charming hotel.

Location, Location, Location

This hotel is as close as you can get to the 1st tee and 18th hole at St. Andrews. Our trip was a 50th birthday gift to my husband. We were awed by the fact that each morning we ate breakfast watching the golfers and beyond them, the glistening North Sea. The hotel was a clean, beautiful old classic.
