The Macdonald Rusacks Hotel in St Andrews is, without doubt, one of the most famous golf hotels in the world. Virtually within a sand wedge of the 18th hole on the world-renowned Old Course, Rusacks combines luxurious accommodation with a front row seat on sporting history. Unquestionably, Scotland's greatest golfing hotel location and the perfect venue for your wedding, event or conference.

wonderful place to stay

Beautiful new improvements in the perfect location. I will stay again and again as I visit my daughter who attends St. Andrew's. My one complaint is that the rooms need a wee bit more lighting.

Not so happy

My first disappointment happened upon check-in. It was my understanding that breakfast would be included with my room, only to find out it was not. [...] My second disappointment came when I could never get a remote control for the in room television. After the third time asking for one, and never getting one, I gave up trying. I will probably never stay there again[...]

Beautiful Location Excellent Service

St. Andrews is the birth place of golf so the decor is all golf related and the property is right across the street from the St. Andrews golf course and the ocean. Breathtaking! While our room did not have a view the room was clean, comfortable and well appointed. The staff was also extremely pleasant and accommodating. The only thing that bothered me was that they charged me for a charitable contribution that I then had to go through the process of rejecting from my bill. I prefer if they ask first and charge only if accepted.

Dinner at the Doll House was excellent. They offer an early dining menue with two courses and a drink that was very cost effective and delicious.
