Good Hotel Guide Review
‘Nothing seems too much trouble’ at this turreted 1920s mansion, one of Scotland’s first country house hotels, owned by the same family for 70 years. ‘It’s not inexpensive, but the staff are welcoming and helpful, the food is good, the guest lounges, bar (which stocks 110 whiskies) and dining areas are attractive and comfortable, and the grounds are delightful – what more can you ask of a hotel?’ Those who do ask for more find ‘superb’ dog- and family-friendly bedrooms packed with thoughtful touches; a popular afternoon tea; and modern Scottish lunches and dinners, served inside and out, featuring kitchen garden produce. Just beyond is the historic seaside town of St Andrews.
