A great little hotel for a St. Andrews Golf vacation. Located conveniently, only 6 blocks to the old course, 4 blocks to the old cathedral ruins, and with many restaurants located within 4 blocks and walking distance. Located within the University of St. Andrews campus area. The rooms are clean and comfortable, but small and you may have to climb...

Its central, welcoming clean with decent sized rooms. We had pleasant and comfortable stay. There is a nice little lounge area where the fire and scotch will warm your bones after a day sightseeing or golfing. The breakfast is very average but satisfactory. The Bed's themselves are average, but overall its a good 3 star. Would come back.

Nice hotel in an excellent location, about 5 minutes walk from the first tee on the Old Course. The staff are very good, breakfast is excellent, and as a base for a golf trip in St Andrews it is excellent. The rooms and en suites are a little small, but other than that it was very satisfactory as a base...

This hotel/B&B is a bit of a walk from the center of the action in St. Andrews. Quiet, and away from the pubs, where the students can be loud out in the street until the wee hours. Good service, good breakfast. A nice small sitting room with a bar.

Stayed on Saturday for one night in a party of 5. Chose this hotel as they had triple rooms so could accomodate the odd number. We could not have chosen better. The triple (room 9) was huge with twin beds and a step up to a separate room with a single bed. This room led onto a lovely decked balcony...

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
