St Andrews vs Oxford (G)

A travel blog entry by grahamandmandi


... than I had remembered, but soon we were in the older part of town with its leafy tree lined streets and old buildings, much more the Oxford of the movies. Our collage, though fairly modern by comparison to some, has a lovely feel with its grassy quadrangles and spires.

The first difference between the two towns that comes to mind are the bicycles. It isn't term time, but there are still many on the ...

Golf Round Three: Carnoustie

A travel blog entry by burkley


... looking back at the variances in distance between tee blocks is staggering. The rough is punishing and apparently it was quite sparse compared to Open conditions. Bunkers are horrific and are easily the cause of an additional shot. I played really well and my caddie Robert was great company and offered some great advice. With no wind the course was much easier but even if you navigate to the green they are just as much a challenge. I shot thirteen over but actually had more ...

And back across the country again!

... with a stereotypical pair of coppers: a big, burly, talkative one and his small, silent, aviator-sunnies-wearing partner. They were on the prowl, for some secret reason, for the owner of a certain vehicle, ("No, not illegally parked, Another Reason!") but were more than happy to lean on the wharf railing and chat about the rigours of their job. Turns out the two of them form the entire Skye Police Force (the Skye Police releaseth us - doesn't have quite the ...

Day 1 - Flight and Tour of St. Andrews

A travel blog entry by m_rosas91


... it was getting close to dinner time, so we ventured back to the hotel, talking to Dad the whole way to make sure he was still awake. Back at the hotel, we regrouped (Mom took a nap) and set out for food. Luckily, we didn't have to go far since there was a restaurant right next to the hotel called the Fettykil Fox. Even luckier - it was pie day! Meat pie, that is. Dad, Grandma, and Grandpa decided to try the traditional dish, ordering the ...

    First Class Hogmany Celebration


    We stayed at this hotel for Hogmany when it opened 4 years ago and decided to go back for 2 nights this year. Even although we only stay 15-20 miles away, we have also stayed twice during the year for a mini-break!

    Absolutely wonderful


    My wife and I stayed a week and found the facilities and the service to be excellent. Between the suite, food and personal service provided by the staff, we were quite impressed and would certainly return.

    Fantastic Golf and Hotel


    Stayed at The St Andrews Bay Resort for 5 nights and had a truely fantastic time. We were in St Andrews primarily for golf but some of our group were non golfers so were overjoyed with the fantastic spa facilities. The Golf Courses were first class and definately worth playing. The Torrance in particular was great with a real links feel and The Devin also good with the added bonus of having golf carts available.

    As for the hotel. Great to find such spacious rooms and wonderful service. A must stay and play for anyone visiting St Andrews.

    Golf & Hotel both fantastic


    In my previous two trips to St Andrews I had no where near as good an experience as when I spent 7 days at the St Andrews Bay Hotel. I was there primarily for golf but also wanted to enjoy the local hospitality. The service was fantastic and the food simply amazing. We played both courses during our stay. My favourite was The Devlin (spectacular views over the North Ocean) but The Torrence was fantastic also. Both great tests of golf. Will definately return to this hotel the next time I visit Scotland.

    Best Scotland has to offer


    The best hospitality I've ever received in the UKWarm, welcoming and relaxed atmosphere. A must when in Scotland (you don't have to golf!) Hotel facilities were to a very high standard - just what Scotland needs.

    Amazing Views


    Driving up to the hotel you know you are in for a treat. From start to finnish we had an excellent stay, the staff were so attentive and friendly and the service was outstanding. The clubhouse is amazing and the views make you want to come back again and again. I definately advise that you take a trip here.

    Best 5* Resort In Scotland


    I have stayed in a number of 5 Star Resorts in Scotland over my many years of travelling. I can gladly say my stay was the best I have ever experience.

    The best in Fife !!


    From the moment we arrived at the hotel our stay was wonderful. The hotel has fantastic views over to St Andrews itself and the staff make you feel so welcome. We had a room with a view across the sea, played golf on one of the two courses, drank champagne on the terrace over at the club house and then each had a hot stone treatment in the spa.

    Great atmosphere, superb food and helpful friendly staff - perfect!!

    Would i stay at this hotel again? NO!!!


    My 2 sisters and I arrived at the hotel for a Spa break to find no Spa treatments had not been booked for us. Our room was only prepared for 2 instead of 3, Dinner at night we waited 3/4 of an hour between courses (our waitress explained its because Chef is in a bad mood). But the high light was they tried to overcharge us by 174.00.

    As it was my birthday the manager said i will do something special at

    dinner for you, something special was a cupcake decorated with

    chocolate, between three how hearty can you be! To sum up my visit a

    TOTAL waste of MONEY!

    The best by far...


    Fantastic new hotel with excellent food, top notch service and well equiped, sizeable, elegant bedrooms. Situated on the cliff top with fantastic views of St Andrews and North sea. Great golf courses. You must try the Bar and the Club House.
