We stayed one night in the Albany Hotel. As a family of 3 we were given the Junior Suite on the ground floor, which consisted of the main bedroom with tv and with the bathroom with shower (no bath) off it, and a separate bedroom up 2 stairs with a single bed. From that bedroom, we had access to a decked seating area, for use only by people in the Junior Suite. The rooms were spacious, immaculate and tastefully furnished, and bathroom was clean. Kettle and complimentary toiletries were provided, despite covid. Beds were comfortable. Only downside we found was that there was no window in the main bedroom, and the French doors onto the decked area were accessible by climbing a wall so not safe to be left open at night, so the rooms were a bit stuffy overnight as we were staying during a Scottish heatwave! Otherwise we could not fault the room at all. We were booked on a B&B basis, and breakfast in the morning was safely done following covid protocols. Food was freshly cooked and tasty, with a good choice. The waitress was very helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. There is a small bar area, which was open until 11pm, serving drinks and coffees. It was very friendly and prices were great value for money compared to some establishments we have visited (£7 for 2 coffees and a soft drink). I can imagine in the winter this bar area would be lovely to relax in at the end of a day touring St Andrews with its comfortable chairs/sofas and fire. The reception staff were polite, helpful and well informed of the local area, and offered to book us table for dinner on our arrival in a local restaurant. Check in was simple and quick. The hotel itself is small but ideally placed for all St Andrews amenities and tourist attractions. There is free unlimited time parking outside the hotel, but for a limited area - be careful not to end up in the paid section! Town centre is a 5minute walk away and we walked to the aquarium in 10 minutes which is next to the beach and golf course. An excellent little hotel which we will return to in the future. …
The Albany was perfect for a mini break in terms of location and comfort. Extremely friendly staff who even organised a take away breakfast for the beach. Room clean and comfortable. Free parking nearby too.
Had a very comfortable night at The Albany. Great location free on street parking directly outside but the road does become pay and display a little further down. Lovely breakfast, had kippers for the first time in years. Nice friendly staff. Only minor gripe we had was being woken by the seagulls bounding above our bedroom at dawn but we could see the funny side of our early wake up call
Have stayed here a few times when visiting family in the area. Never any issues, a clean and well maintained central hotel which works well for these trips. The location is certainly one of the best features, being right in the centre of St Andrews, and it does a decent breakfast. Certainly one to go for if you're looking for a hotel in St Andrews.
Warm and welcoming family hotel. Spacious ground floor room,very comfortable and clean. Nice little bar,good breakfast choices,well located,all round very enjoyable stay throughout. Special mention to Sarah on reception for being so helpful,welcoming and friendly towards us. Would book The Albany hotel again when in town.
