Stayed with my girlfriend here in November 2015 and overall it was a very positive experience. I've played golf here before and it was one that I always have wanted to stay in. It's cheaper than most 5* hotels in Scotland but the quality of the place does reflect this, but these are only minor things. The lobby is fantastic...

Attended an Awards Ceremony here and stayed overnight. Firstly the quality of the food at the event was excellent considering that there were a few hundred people being served at roughly the same time. The smoked salmon and crab mousse starter being particularly good. Staff were attentive and friendly and very polite. The bedroom was large and clean with a...

We stayed in Seaview Room 2005, on Fri 18th December celebrating my husband's birthday. The hotel is very grand, lovely views and the staff very efficient. In our room lovely wee touch of a plate decorated with Happy Birthday and Chocolates. Our room was lovely and glad to see the hotel are undertaking a makeover which includes doing up bathrooms...

An excellent place to relax, hold an event play golf or visit St Andrews. We go as a family every year, the hotel is awesome, the staff are great, and the breakfasts are something special. I highly recommend a visit staying or not.

Stayed overnight here to attend a gala dinner and award ceremony. The room was great, with a gorgeous, large bathroom, and views over the bay. BUT when we got to the ballroom area for dinner, it was cold, and the corridors outside where everyone congregated to talk and meet old friend, were freezing. As the ladies were in 'posh frocks'...
