This small hotel gives a very high level of service, which would be the envy of larger hotels. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. Small, cosy bar is a plus, and excellent breakfast. Delighted with our stay.

Free parking outside hotel. 24 hour reception coverage. Very helpful reception staff. Comfortable lounge and masses of books everywhere. Breakfast room on lower ground floor down steepish stairs. Good breakfast choice.

We were two couples on a golf tour and spent a few nights here at the hotel. From the moment we walked in everyone was lovely. The help at the front desk was top notch and we especially enjoyed our morning chats with Zerah who so expertly looked after us every morning at breakfast. For us the location was perfect - even walked our clubs to our round at the Old Course. Nice restaurants are close as are the many pubs. The sitting room and bar are a great stop for a drink before and after your night or even a quiet game of cards. Our room was small’ish but we didn’t need much more than a bed and a shower to get cleaned up. Kudos to everyone at the Albany Hotel. We hope we’re back very soon. Cheers.

Weekend trip with friends, the Garden suite is ideal for 4 people. Nothing not to like, the staff couldn't be more helpful. Breakfast was delicious, plenty options to suit everyone. Will definitely be back!

Had a wonderful long weekend in St Andrews recently and stayed at the Albany Hotel on the main road in town, great location! The breakfast was one of the best I have ever eaten! Room was tiny but the shower was very powerful and loads of hot water. Lots of plugs for charging laptops and computers The cutest garden with apple tree and beautiful plants and flowers

Stayed here for the first time. Had room 11 which is a small double that was perfect for me on my own. Bed was comfortable enough but bathroom was a bit of a squeeze as if I was not careful when I opened the bathroom door it would hit the sink. Was also warned that the wifi can be a bit dodgy in the room (probably because it is at the back on the ground floor) That said, it was fine for me. Staff were really helpful with local places to go (esp the young lady on reception in the evening). Breakfast was really nice (porridge and a full scottish). Would definitely come again but would have a different room.

We had a lovely little stay while my son was moving into University. Staff was gracious and welcoming. We were able to drop off our luggage early in the day and go about our business. Very convenient. I will stay here again!

It was a wonderful Scottish experience! Service was terrific. The people were so nice and friendly. We loved the breakfast, with lots to choose from, including a delicious Scottish breakfast. The hotel had a bed and breakfast feel but with service of a hotel. It was a short walk to restaurants and shops. Great for groups traveling together.

Lovely hotel with friendly, helpful staff. My only quibble is the bathroom where the electric shower really lets the hotel down. It ran cold and then scalding hot and so on while I showered. I really think this should be upgraded. There are plenty of inexpensive options that would get rid of this dated and somewhat dangerous system. That water was really hot!

This has a great location on North Street in easy walking of restaurants. The rooms were clean and functional, and the staff all friendly and welcoming. Parking was possible outside the hotel - but is on the street, and so you need some luck to ensure you find it close by.
