We stayed at the Old Course Hotel on a Wednesday night and from the minute we arrived we have been thoroughly looked after. I really can't fault this hotel and staff, I think this is the best hotel I've ever stayed in. Sands Grill is closed on a Wednesday which is a bit of a shame. Breakfast was at the...

This stay was the first time at The Old Course, its rack rates are not what we would be prepared to pay, but a friend told us to look on one of the hotel booking sites, and we got two nights for a knock-down price. So we were keen to see what this, supposedly the best hotel in St. Andrews,...

Had a fantastic afternoon tea, beautifully prepared and everything was delicious. Fresh sandwiches, brioche, sausage rolls and yummy cakes and scones. All served up by attentive but not intrusive staff. Couldn't fault it in any way - all that plus views of the sea across the golf course and the beautiful Christmas decorations. Lovely way to spend an afternoon
