Old Course HotelThe doyen of St Andrews hotels, this classic property borders the renowned 17th Road Hole of the Old Course, overlooking the famous links and West Sand Beach. Still, you needn’t play golf to appreciate the Old Course Hotel, especially its Kohler Waters Spa, complete with bathing experiences, a 65-foot indoor swimming pool, a rooftop garden with a hot tub, and more. In the 144 rooms—including 35 suites—guests enjoy elegant yet contemporary interiors, many created by French designer Jacques Garcia. Also on-site are six distinct dining and drinking options, from Sands (a brasserie emphasizing local, seasonal ingredients) and the Jigger Inn (offering home-cooked food and a selection of Scottish beers) to the Road Hole Bar (famous for having more than 250 whiskies).
