For golf enthusiasts and nature lovers, the Old Course Hotel in Scotland is a haven of relaxation and play. The hotel sits alongside the 17th Road Hole on the world’s most famous golf course, St Andrews, just metres from the rugged Scottish coastline and the North Sea.
Golfers will have no problem filling their days with tee-times at half a dozen world-class courses nearby, including the hotel’s own Duke’s Course, with majestic greens, beautiful fairways, and guaranteed tee-off times for hotel guests. Those who prefer life off the green will discover an equally active schedule, filling the days with luxury spa treatments at the Kohler Waters Spa (the only one of its kind outside of the U.S.), strolls through scenic St Andrews, and meals at three gourmet onsite restaurants including the Road Hole Restaurant, offering fine dining and over 200 types of whisky
Inside, the Old Course Hotel is more modern than its historic name implies. A conservative marble lobby gives way to 144 comfortably appointed rooms (including 35 luxurious suites), designed with contemporary elegance. Every room features tasteful finishes and thoughtfully curated comforts, some designed by famed French interiors guru Jacques Garcia himself. Suites feature silk-lined walls and many rooms have private balconies, offering stunning views of the Old Course and St Andrews town.
