Stayed at the Rusacks Hotel on a trip with friends to play golf in Scotland. Was the best place we stayed and really enjoyed both the service and the hotel. Had a great view of the golf course and the food was very nice. Very short distance from the first tee at St andrews and also very close to one...

Thank you Jim for your 5 star review! I am so glad you enjoyed your trip and stay with us. Hopefully the the best golf Pub is our One Under Gastro pub at the hotel. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon. Kristian Campbell

The hotel suffers from its good location at the bottom of the main town and with views over the golf course and sea. For the price, the service (other than in the bar for food and drinks) was sub-standard. Breakfast was woeful; the 'buffet' was probably the worst I have ever seen although the fruit was soft and edible. The...

Thank you for your recent review Caroline T. We have the option of rooms with views but it looks like you booked a Classic Double which do not have views of the Golf or Beach. I am sorry to hear about Breakfast and would welcome a chance to discuss this in more detail if you could contact me at the...

This place is a real Jewel. The staff were excellent, being knowledgable in the hotel and area and very friendly. We were lucky enough to get a room overlooking the old course which must be one of the best views in Scotland

Great to sit in the bar and watch the wannabe links golfers hit their ball into the car park!! Location is beside 18th of the old course and only a short walk into the centre of town. Slightly disappointed with the suite, we had the Stephen Gallagher suite but were not aware that it is not actually part of the...

Thank you for your recent review. I am glad you enjoyed the views and our location during your stay. I am sorry you did not like our Gallacher Suite, we normally get only praise for the room with its own entrance right on to the links and separate lounge and kitchen. It does explain on our website about its location...

This is an expensive hotel. The last time I stayed in a four star hotel in central London it cost less. The location is a strong point, right by the 18th green of the old course and a short walk from the beach. The public area is decorated in a style contemporary with its Victorian origins (built in 1887) until...

So why does a non-golfer love this hotel? First and foremost the crisp sheets and fluffy pillows. Secondly, a towel warmer with all the big fluffy towels you'll need and washcloths too. You might laugh at the washcloths remark but they were the first we'd seen in almost 3 weeks of travel! Location is perfect for walking around town.

Stayed here for four nights and can't speak highly enough of this charming hotel and its staff. Nothing was too much trouble for any of them, but particular mention must go to Andy and Ian - the concierges / porters. Needing a 6.30am breakfast on one of the golf mornings, Ian cooked me up a sumptuous feast that any fully...
