We were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary and the staff made this a very special break for us. We stayed in the studio suite which was really lovely. All the staff were so friendly and welcoming. Special mention to Davie who does a grand job of welcoming you at the main entrance,

Our room was in the part still to be refurbished, but was still great, spacious...

A lovely late autumn visit to one of my favourite hotels. It didn't disappoint. Service was excellent. Excellent choice at breakfast. Food and drink a little expensive so ate out in St Andrews but hope to go back.

At the time I offered to let the reception know the voucher number- she said it wasn't necessary and that we should just arrive. We were given a...

The staff are very welcoming and everything you would expect from a hotel of this standard. The recent renovation is stylish, sophisticated and tasteful. If you are looking for a relaxing time be it in the spa or one of the bars, then you will not be disappointed.

We spent 5 days at this hotel while our daughter was looking at the university. The staff are remarkably kind and engaged. The rooms (we were in a newly updated room) were excellent.
