spacious period hotel with good facilities. we had a lovely room with great view of championship golf course & Standrews beach beyond. Breakfast was excellent & staff very attentive. First night had dinner in their rocco restaurant. Food good but portions far too small, left table still feeling hungry. complained to the chef as did people at next table. Would definately stay here again but would not have dinner at roccos.

Lovely Staff

Pros: The character and close proximity restaurants etc.
The person on reception was extremely pleasant, which was a good first impression. Our room had a fantastic view of the 18th. The bed was really comfortable and had a good nights sleep as was very quiet.
