    Magnificent location, and meals were alright!!!

    This hotel met what was needed in every way, would be happy to recommend. We found an air conditioning, ironing facilities and a radio in the standard king room. Besides, we parked the car nearby.

    Excellent breakfast and great staff!!!

    We appreciated staying at Albany. Very central position of the venue. Moreover, andrews aquarium was 10 minutes' walk away. The full Scottish breakfast had lots of choices.

    Extremely helpful staff, marvellous location. It was close enough to East Sands. A comfortable bar at the bed and breakfast. We booked this property after a friend's recommendation.

    The three of us had a junior suite. For one night 251 pounds is not cheap, but for that there is a great room with a terrace and a super breakfast. In addition also a very good location to reach everything on foot comfortably.

    Beautiful room, well located directly at the university and only a short walk from the cathedral and the castle. The golf courses are also within walking distance. Nice staff, good breakfast

    Good location in the centre of St Andrews. St. Andrews Cathedral and the castle are just a few minutes walk away. Public parking directly in front of the hotel, but almost always occupied. Approx. 100 m away are parking places that are not expensive, here you can still get a parking place. Comfortable beds, good Scottish breakfast.

    Stayed there overnight for a family wedding, arrived with little time to get ready and we had been put on top floor, my mum is 80 and I have arthritis, staff changed us to ground floor room without us even asking, were polite, friendly and could not have asked for more. Did get woken at 2am by other people coming into their rooms, but you can't blame that on the hotel, its others being thoughtless. Breakfast time, the room was lovely and the breakfast was piping hot and beautifully cooked, the gentleman who served us was polite and interested in how our wedding had gone, checkout was while they were still serving breakfasts, I rang the bell and he sprung up from downstairs to attend to us. I'm told the shops are near bye, but if you are going to a wedding at the university The Albany is just a few steps away and perfect for that reason but if I were visiting again for any reason I would certainly stay there again

    Very comfortable and well appointed traditional hotel which is well located in the heart of St Andrews. Enjoyed a tasty breakfast in an attractive dining room which can be extended out into the garden in warm weather.

    I cosider it to be a very good upgraded B & B type of hotel. A much better experience than when I stayed at St Andrews before in an actual B & B

    The room was very small and had stepped levels

    Nice

    the hotel was fine, though expensive as it was geared to cater for golf fans. The room was adequate though small. I would think about staying there again if I went to St Andrews.
