Staff are excellent - very friendly and helpful when required, unobtrusive otherwise. Can't praise them enough. Tastefully decorated hotel in very central location. Good breakfasts. Rooms very comfortable.

Stayed here for one night while playing golf with friends. Rooms are small but comfortable and clean. Staff very friendly and helpful. Good breakfast. Within easy walking distance of most of St Andrews, 1st tee of the Old Course is 10-15 minutes walk away, another 5 gets you to the links clubhouse. No car park but there's street parking

Playing golf in St Andrews with 5 great friends. The Albany was the perfect hotel for us. The service was great. Everybody was friendly and helpful. The breakfast to start each morning was the perfect start to a day of golfing. The bar/ parlor was where we relived each round.

I was in town for two nights for a friend's wedding. The Albany was lovely. The location was excellent and the staff was friendly and helpful. If I ever make it back to St. Andrews--and I hope I do!--I'll definitely book with them again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
