They recently renovated this hotel. The staff is friendly and welcoming. The decor has an old feel but is newly appointed. The location is perfect. A quick walk to the clubhouse or a 10 min walk down to the heart of St. Andrews. I look forward to staying here again.

The doors were paper thin you could hear everyone in the corridor and breakfast service was terrible , 15 minute queue for a booked time slot and then 20 minutes to wait for a tea spoon… it was far from the 5* experience for us.
