About Old Course Hotel, St. Andrews

Grand luxury hotel overlooking St. Andrews golf course

Over 250 years of golf

Overlooking the 17th Road Hole of St. Andrews Old Course, Old Course Hotel Golf Resort & Spa sits practically on top of the world's oldest golf course, founded in 1754. It's a leisurely, 10-minute walk to the course entrance or to the edge of the charming town of St. Andrews.

Golf history on the coast

A 10-minute walk, overlooking the windswept shores of St. Andrews Bay, the British Golf Museum delves into the history of the sport. A 20-minute walk into town, the ruins of the 12th-century St. Andrews Church give visitors a glimpse at what was once Scotland's largest church.

Scrumptious afternoon tea

The hotel's 6 bars and restaurants include the elegant Road Hole with regional Scottish cuisine and sea views, and the cozy Jigger Inn, serving its own Jigger Ale. You can take afternoon tea in the hotel conservatory, or enjoy a dip in the waterfall pool at the Kohler Waters Spa.

Free WiFi, course views

All 144 hotel rooms offer golf course views and are decorated in high-Scottish style, with silk walls and curtains, dark wood furniture, and a tartan-patterned touch here and there. Rooms offer free WiFi, flat-screen TVs, coffeemakers, and Kohler Waters Spa products.

Very Good8.0
Bucket list experience in St andrews.
Lovely one night. Room spacious and in very nice condition. Breakfast and service excellent. Would have liked a full glass rather than half glass of prosecco on check in. Would like to stay again some time. I have stayed in russacks hotel and Fairmont state Andrews but the old course hotel was the best.

Nice hotel for golfers
Large and comfortable room - half of the rooms overlook the famous St. Andrews golf course and a nice sea view. WiFi in the room did not work the first night; complaint to the front desk resulted in the unhelpful advice to "try again"; very annoying, but it worked the next days. Noisy heating fan, but not enough heat (freezing weather). My colleague had to switch room since the window in his room could not be closed properly. Plenty of parking space. Very helpful concierges. Excellent breakfast.
