The Old Course Hotel offers luxury modern accommodation in a gorgeous location, however it's the level of service from all the staff that sets it part, and above other hotels of it's kind. A real delight to visit!

While this is a pricey hotel, I love it! The rooms are super comfortable, the breakfast is delicious, and the gym is genuinely nice, affording charming views into the old course. Town is just a quick walk away and the Jigger Inn (adjacent to the hotel) has awesome food.

We had our recent Global Business Dinner at the Old Course Hotel and as far as venues go, this is a top class venue. The service from everyone was excellent including their hospitality team. The venue couldn't do enough to help us make the event a tremendous success. Thanks to everyone at The Old Course for making the event run smoothly. Delicious food as well and our guests had a fab time too!

Beautiful hotel with amazing views over the golf course and to the sea. Staff are very efficient, friendly and attentive. We only visited for drinks at the Road Hole bar on the 4th floor on this day, but will return soon for an overnight stay.

Everyone in the hotel are so kind and helpful. The spa is really good, I especially like the cold plunge pool. I shock people by staying in there for ages. But the baths in the room, they are amazing, I'm sure you could class them as a 3 person bath.

Staff very friendly in the Jigger Inn.I was at St Andrews University in 1972 and drank the second pint poured by Dave the bar manager on that occasion of the bar opening. My brother in law had the first pint. Miss Dave and Margaret very much.Great days.!

Had a wonderful 3 days at The Old Course Hotel, excellent, competent service and attention to detail. Beautiful breakfast room / restaurant / bar areas / rooftop terrace on the 4th floor, all with beautiful views across the the golf course and the iconic view of the 18th tee. The town is lovely too with several incredible historic sights. Well worth a visit!

I was attending my uncles wedding, the staff were amazing, accommodating of every need, serving us politely and professionally. The first thing you'll notice is the location, and what a location it is, you get a view of the golf course and the sea which is absolutely stunning, the building itself is a masterpiece with chandeliers and paintings everywhere, quite breathtaking really. During the ceremony they ensured that all the chairs were in line and everyone could here what was being said. During the dinner they offered everyone wine and water and served all the food while wearing white gloves and walked around the table in a certain direction as well as placing the plates down at the same time, fantastic! The evening/dancing we they ensured everyone had enough space to dance as well as sit down which was great, there was always someone around if we needed any help and there was never an empty glass on site When buying drinks all the alcohol was top shelf stuff, so expensive but tasted amazing (£4 for vodka lemonade depending which bar in the hotel you go to, some do double shots which make it more expensive) All in all, one hell of a day but well worth the money, unfortunately I can't comment on the rooms and overnight stay as I didn't stay over, but I was told it's like nothing you've ever experienced

Iconic hotel right beside the Old Course. Great customer service. Immaculate rooms and bathrooms. They offer shuttles to the driving range and nearby courses free of charge. You could also have an employee from the driving range call them to pick you up. We we're staying in an Eden Room when our AC stopped working. The kind gentleman at the front desk immediately arranged for us to transfer to another room with the view of the 17th fairway of the Old Course. Room was sorted twice a day and was always smelling fresh. Water was always provided in the room everyday. What wonderful stay.

Stayed at the hotel quit a few times now and haven't been disappointed with the service and food. The leisure facilities are being upgraded and about time too. Can't wait to go back and see the finished product. Special mention to the concierge service.

Was at an event advertised as being acompanied with afternoon tea. Clearly the organisers of this event were mislead as afternoon tea for me consisted of only a mug of tea. Firstly the tea and coffee facilities were removed as soon as all the mugs could be collected. Furthermore, the food element was just a few "canapés" of miniature cakes. Upon being offered one of these cakes i informed the staff member of my allergy to nuts, and asked if they would be able to enquire which of the cakes i could eat, and they informed me that they would ask the chef. However, no more food was brought out at all after these small boards, therefore it is likely that many participants at this event didnt get any food including myself. I feel sorry for the people who organised this event who i believe were misslead by the hotel as to what afternoon tea would consist of. Seeing as this was the only part of the event which was organised by the hotel itself i cannot give it more than a 1 star rating as my afternoon tea literally consisted of a mug of tea.
