I should have known better from my reservation experience but we love St. Andrews and I wanted to spoil my wife on her birthday. The Hotel did its best to spoil the birthday. At check inn I found our restaurant reservations had been "confused" but after a return for help from reception I managed to get a table for the...

I had to find something to fill seven hours in St Andrews on a winter's day... where better to while away the time than a luxury spa? I chose the Old Course Hotel over the other one because the photos looked like a nicer place and the prices were not dissimilar, despite the Old Course having the option to trade...

My son and I stayed at the hotel for my daughters' graduation at the University. On arrival I could see the hotel was being renovated and there was lots of scaffolding on the outside. At reception I was told our room was just on the edge of the scaffolding. When I stated that it might be a bit noisy, the...

Stayed on Friday night in an Old Course suite. Was able to check in early to what was a truly fabulous room with views over the 17th hole and up to the town. Staff are polite and efficient. A glass of prosecco on arrival sets the standard for the rest of your stay. We made full use of the spa...

Again can not fault the staff or hotel everything was to the standard expected understandably they are now moving forward to start the renovations which can only improve this great hotel. I did have a small complaint which was dealt with very quickly and professionally. I will return once it opens its roots again after renovations

We travel to St Andrews every year for a family catch-up and our stay in the Old Course Hotel is always very comfortable. The staff are very friendly and courteous and the breakfasts, although busy, are served promptly with a good selection to choose from. The views are splendid and the extra cost for a golf course view is definitely...

Treated my girlfriend to a spa day, we've been here before about 5 months ago so we knew what we were getting. Superb treatments, well looked after by the staff and a delicious 2 course meal!

I do not have anything but praise for this hotel as the room for its classification was very well fitted and had an excellent comfortable bed. Staff are very good. Maybe one slight negative was the view of the Old Course was obscured by the scaffolding outside the window ( but handy if there was a fire ). Also make...

Stayed one night in an old course suite. Fab service from check in to check out. Used the spa with amazing massage followed by a great dinner, tasting menu with accompanied wines. View from room of 1st 2nd 17th and 18th holes. With great view across to sea. Recommend to all.
