    We like the location and the lovely pool areas and breakfasts are fab. We have gone for years and disappointed to see all the wee extra touches that make it feel 5 star have stopped, also beds are now smaller and not so luxurious.

    Such a beautiful setting and a short walk into St Andrews town. Excellent spa, best treatment ever! All the staff are efficient and quietly go about their job. They are interesting to talk to . It really is a lovely 5 star hotel , without being over the top. Just the right balance. Our only complaints would be a few issues with the bathroom, but quickly sorted and the TV reception was very poor.
