Very nice hotel, in an outstanding location, for a reasonable price.

This hotel is quite historic, and is literally steps from the Old Course, about 5-10 minutes walk from the Old Course Hotel, 10 minutes from St Andrews University, and 20 minutes to St Andrews Cathedral. The view is fantastic, overlooking the sea for some rooms.
The rooms are roomy (by European standards), resembling North American Best Western hotels. They are clean, with comfortable beds, and are fairly quiet (at least when I was there, I didn't hear my neighbours). The bathrooms are clean and functional, and I had a full bathtub with a nice, strong shower head.
My only negative comments:
1) The wifi - slow, slow slow! At times this was not functional and I couldn't even check email. While I understand it is free, this is a basic necessity of business travel, and I would be willing to pay a small amount for improved service.
2) The bathroom fixture were quite old and could use some updating. They worked without difficulty, but I would rather not have to flush the toilet 3 times to get a full flush, or have separate hot and cold faucets.
The service was friendly and nice. I thoroughly enjoyed my 3 nights at this hotel! less
